    TD 18. 1939. Dozer

    Wow, sorry to hear about your accident. I sure hope your condition improves. I suffered a broken/shatttered tib/fib a couple years ago, takes a long time to get as good as it's going to. Where are you located?

    Loadstar 1600 brakes dragging

    Not a wheel bearing. This only happened to the rear brakes, pretty equal both sides. I'll let you know what I find when I get a chance to investigate in few days.
  3. Drove the 74 1600 today, 38,000 miles. Went about 8 miles and decided the hand brake was not fully released, felt a slight drag. It was not the hand brake but the rear brakes..slight drag. I backed the adusterers off a little and things were fine and still had enough brake. Went 25 miles, picked up 7 ton of 1 1/2 gravel, no drag and plenty of brake. 15 miles toward home and drag became noticable again, slowly increased, even though I did not touch the pedal in that time. Did not dare stop going up a steep hill, got a bit of smoke when I stopped at the top. Backed the adjusters off again and no further problems the next 7 miles home. What the heck, adjusters tightening themselves too much? Or pressure not releasing in the lines somewhere? Any thoughts would be helpful, can't start taking thing apart for a week. Thanks, Popo

    My friends know me to well...

    Fits me as well, just ask the in-laws.
  6. Just noticed that there is a td9 listed in a Nebraska auction Nov. 29th. http://www.farmauction.net/auctions/ and yes it's been quite awhile since I've been here. Plan is to get one of the td9's running by Christmas. Pictures have been taken at almost every step and a full update will be posted when time allows.
