  1. Back in the 50's we had a three holer out back, newspaper or magzines was used "after you read it " (didn't used the shiney pages)
  2. Did you check for voltage at the glow plugs to see if there is voltage there ? Ok next, Did you check to see if there voltage is present, 0r how long ? No Voltage ! What powers the glow plugs ? A timer, Relay, or the machine computer ? Timer can be bad. replace it. The relay bad, replace it. Does the wiring check out ok, or is one of the wires going to the glow plugs broken. Maybe a bad ground ? Computer's timer needs to be checked for the heat up time for the glow plugs. OR when all else fails By pass the current system - and you could install a new timer and wiring to control the glow plugs, With a push button to activate the the new timer system. You will probably get an error code from the computer after modifying the system, but the motor will start and it should not affect how the equipment runs and operates. Good Luck !
  3. Another great source it - Boyd and Sons Machinery - Washington, IN https://www.boydandsonsmachinery.com/ They are a good source for new and used parts. They have a parts line to locate older machine parts, US wide. I've used them for years to locate new, obsolete, and used parts, I can't find any where else. Sometimes less that manufacturer cost. Great service and support. They will get back to you about the parts your looking for. Reasonable Shipping, too.

  5. Thanks for the insight information. I've had the 238 engine rebuilt 5 times and it keeps having problems, the last the harmonic balance blew up and blew a hole in the block. I'm tired of rebuilding it and the down time of not being able to use it. Tom
  6. I'm changing out the International 238 engine in a International TD8 dozer. I'm told I can use a 4BT cummons motor to replace it. My 238 is a Turbo Diesel engine. 1 st. Does the 4BT non turbo motor the same internal parts as the 4BT turbo motor, so I can just add a turbo to it and have it work, or does it have different internal parts that will not take the extra power from the turbo? 2 nd. What are the adapters (bell housing, fly wheel and'or center bushing) I need to make the conversion from the International transmission to the the cummons motor, so I can hook up the flex palte to the new motor? Any help is appricated. Tom
