  1. Thanks, hardtail! I plan on keeping in touch with the forum. I might even be able to pass on a tip I've gotten or share the results of an experience I've had in the last 20 years. Vic
  2. Good idea---I'll tell him! Vic
  3. It's all over. Yesterday I sold both tractors to a local industrial mechanic for $2000. He had to come only 5 miles to pick them up. Vic
  4. Thanks, "Doc"! I'll try it your way---it sounds good to me. I think I'll put a heater on it to help evaporate any moisture left in the radiator. Vic
  5. I am keeping the Jeep & we're going to the west side of Moses Lake where my wife has a couple of relatives left.
  6. That's a tough analogy to follow---I've never taken a pain killer! Vic
  7. Thanks for the plug, Hardtail! Actually, I'm trying to get away cheap as I don't need the tractor any more as well as my -14. I'm moving down the hill where I won't need them. I'd like to patch it up as the rest of it is in working order. I just finished using it last winter on my driveway. I'd love to sell both tractors for whatever I can get for them to get them off my property. There are many good parts (new & rebuilt) on both of them that I've added over 20 years. And they are both in running order (minus the radiator leak). Vic
  8. The lower radiator gasket is leaking. Is there any known patch, liquid steel, etc. that could be applied to circumvent having to pull the front end off the tractor? Vic
  9. I forgot to mention a couple of other things---when you find out what your tractor is, Binder Books is one place to look for manuals. Also, in my opinion the price is over double its value. I think that it would have to be in perfect shape, along with a recent wash job to be worth that much. Vic
  10. From the pictures, it has quite a few features similar to my TD-14 although the tracks look wider (maybe 22"). From the driver's seat check the left side of the dash for a decal with info on it. Vic
  11. Here are a couple of shots I took this afternoon on my way to plow out a shed that stores equipment. Vic
  12. My 80 year old TD-14, the one that has plowed my 1/2 mile steep driveway for the last 20 years has allowed me to live in the mountains all those years. Vic
  13. I agree! Just for laughs, I tried starting my little 2 cylinder Chinese Rhino at 0 deg. (18 deg. C). One quick shot of engine starter (ether) & it started immediately. Vic
  14. It worked! I did add a heat rod in the dip stick hole along with the propane heater. After all that I cranked on the motor for about 20 minutes before it continued to run. Vic
