  1. Wow, that is really amazing work! Please keep us posted on your progress. Do you use any 3D printing or is each piece fully fabricated by hand? What materials are you using?
  2. Wow, what a cool story! It really is part of the family!
  3. Welcome to the Board Gregg. What is her history?
  4. My stepson has one. What software did you generate them in? And where did yuo find gasket material flat enough to use in it? I had to iron the last gasket material I got just to make it usuable!
  5. Check out the General Gear website. Parts and manual downloads for steering clutches and brakes. http://www.tpaktopc.net/td4td5strcltch.htm
  6. I have guns. I would be eating the gator, not the other way around! (I know, it is easy to say when you aren't there!) i heard they had terrible temperatures after the storm too!
  7. Not cheap either! https://reimertuning.com/products/case-backhoe-loaders-egr-dpf-models-570-580-590 https://tuning24.org/tractor-tuning/shop/tractor/Case-Backhoe-Loader-580N-3.4L-90HP-Tier4F/
  8. All the Sherman parts were interchangeable. That was their strength. The parts for the German tanks were all hand fitted, so they were not interchangeable. US manufacturing made the difference. The tanks still sucked, but they were easy to service!
  9. Are you feeling the need for another one?
  10. Well that is for one of the TD9's. It would be an interesting addition to a collection. Where is it located?
  11. Yea, he has a lot of practical experience with Detroit's. While a Detroit may not be the perfect dozer engine, it has the benefit of cheap, plentiful parts, which no other vintage engine can offer.
  12. I really like the looks of the AC rounded nose as opposed to the hard nose like mine has. A hard noses more practical, but I really like that grill
  13. Buddy hooked me up with an HD9 last fall. 1954 vintage. Only problem was one injector and the left side steering clutch is frozen. Undercarriage was pretty new, but the tracks are on backwards. Mine has a Baker blade, but a different model from yours. At least with the Detroit's you can still get parts for them! General Gear has all of the clutch parts for them and also has most of the manuals set up for free download on the bottom of the AC section. I downloaded all of my manuals, including the Detroit manual, printed them laminated the cover and bound them. Here is a source for Detroit parts: https://dieselpro.com/ And another place i found some manuals to download: https://www.tradebit.com/filesharing.php Detroit tips on oil : http://www.tejascoach.com/tips.html Also Discount Hydraulic Hose out of Philly is great for custom hoses at reasonable prices. 50% of what I could get them for locally. They saved me a lot of money on the four 1.25" lift cylinder hoses. Good quality and very fast turn around too. https://www.discounthydraulichose.com/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwg7KJBhDyARIsAHrAXaG3tKOpOJWl-_y6u2o0ZS2E9tvevS5Kgn7FvhLmdr8jJPvptdSBzAIaAkpeEALw_wcB
  14. Quite the extraction!!!!! Glad you got it out safely.
  15. Chain a log across the tracks and move it 10 feet at a time. A lot of work but it beats being stuck in the bush! I guess it is easier and safer to get your see buddy in the excavator though. It is always easy to second guess someone when you are not there though.
  16. The bottom cover is close to a 500c, but I don't think it's exact.
  17. If you have nonferrous part involved I suggest Evaporust instead!
  18. The 500C is totally different!!! Check with General Gear (Tractorparts.com).
