  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 nose is 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

    RIP

    A friend of mine's daughter his good friends with the Navy medics sister. In fact she stayed at their house for a week earlier this month. It's a pretty hard blow right here at the end.
  15. Quite the extraction!!!!! Glad you got it out safely.
  16. I use two stroke oil since it's made to burn. The newer APS are made it withstand high temperatures.
