  1. They can be fixed, American Cylinder Head, Oakland CA has repaired a couple for me.
  2. Nice score, the undercarriage alone looks like it is worth the purchase.
  3. Thread locking head screws, they have a small patch of nylon on the threads to keep the bolts from loosening. When I did the steering clutches on my TD9 it had these bolts, I reused them, this was in 1984, tractor is still running. I don't know if they came with the self locking bolts or if at one time before I bought the tractor the clutches were worked on. My TD6 has the safety wire, the next time I do the steering clutches I will replace with the self locking bolts.
  4. From the description section of the service manual: The hydraulic system used on the above listed tractors (TD6, TD9, TD14, TD18) is a semi-closed system with a maximum operating pressure of 650 psi and a normal operating pressure of 250-400 psi." Is the size of the pistons you listed the rod or the piston size, I run 5 x 16 cylinders with a 2 inch rod on both my TD6 and TD9 with a 33 gpm pump, it is the perfect size for the blade, they are very smooth to operate. With big cylinders you need good volume.
  5. The 285707R93 could be a later version of the pump, the R93 would designate it as a later part number, The service manual I have is a 1967 version so it would list the latest number, if you have a parts book for the TD14 is may show your number. If you want the section on rebuilding that pump I can scan it, it's not too many pages. There's not a whole lot that goes wrong with hydraulic pumps, the only thing gone wrong with my setup's is the drive splines on the crankshaft, they have worn to the point the pump stopped working.
  6. The pump on your TD9-91 was for the TD14A, the book shows these tractors used the Hydreco 3020C5A1 IH part # 285707R93. The pump for the TD9-91 used the 2020K8B2. The 2020 pump is rated at 29-33 gpm, depending on the engine rpm. My TD6-62 pump is a 32 gpm pump. Here is the info out of the IH Hydraulic Equipment service manual.
  7. Shanep, the eccentric brake and clutch actuating shaft item #9? Part number 621 025 C1. FP Smith shows new and used in stock. If they beat the levers (3 and 14) on then they screwed up the splines on those also. Left and rights are different. LH steering brake is 621 032 C1, Right is 621 033 C1, Left steering clutch is 621 027 C1 Right is 621 028 C1. These part numbers are out of the 100C parts book, TD7C and E and TD8C and E take the same.
  8. Good catch George, I missed that the pressure plate was loose. Louie
  9. TD6, it looks like your clutch is disengaged, engage the clutch (push the throw-out bearing in towards the flywheel) also on the end of the input shaft (27) there is a zerk fitting, take that out, it will give you another 1/2 inch clearance. This should give you enough room to remove the coupling and then the clutch will come out. Your coupling looks like the early style, the later styles are a little different. Before installing fill the input shaft with grease until it comes out the end (pilot bearing side) this way after it is installed you only need to put 5 or 6 pumps with the grease gun, you will know the pilot bearing then has grease.
  10. Strainer part number is 324 459 R91, FP Smith shows new in stock. It's a stainless mesh strainer, if it's not damaged there is no need to replace it, wash it, blow it out with compressed air, they do not wear out. Go to Ebay for a service manual, try and get an original IH service manual, the reprints are sometimes not very good quality. That zerk fitting is to grease the shaft, grease will come out the end, that's normal. That's not the zerk to tighten up the tracks, that fitting is under the plug.
  11. There were two types of track adjusters available for that tractor, the manual and the optional hydraulic adjuster, here is the procedure to adjust your tracks. You have the hydraulic adjusters on your 150. The whine noise in the hydraulic system sounds like a plugged strainer, that is an easy fix. If you don't mind getting your arm coated in oil it can be done without draining the hydraulic system, I would always drain the system so you can also wipe the bottom of the tank clean, also it eliminates the chance of grit getting into the return line also if the system is that dirty it's time to put in fresh hydraulic oil.
  12. Ray, that is so neat, thanks for posting those great pictures.
  13. The clutch looks the same as is in the TD6 crawler, they do make a snap noise when engaging, set the clutch by the pull on the handle, 40 lbs. of pull is what is recommended on the crawlers. There are several grease zerk fittings on the clutch linkage.
  14. Dave, TD9's have bushings in the front idler, late TD9-92 series (serial # 4831 and up) IH went to the tapered roller bearing.
  15. That is a very nice straight looking tractor, congratulations on your new tool.
  16. That brought tears to my eyes, made me think about my own father. Thank you for sharing this.
  17. Ian, the 62 series have sealed rollers and have a plug in the roller shaft. The older series tractors that use button head do not have sealed rollers that is why they recommended lubing the rollers every 10 hours, at least that is what our old Cat 15 needed.
  18. Tad, How does the air expel from the interior of the roller if the lubricator tube is screwed into the roller shaft? I would think doing it that way would build pressure in the roller cavity?
  19. TD6-62 series have 1000-hour rollers, they have a plug in the end, remove the plug, it takes a special tool to put oil in the rollers. Oil at the hole does not mean they have oil. I have attached a couple of pages from the operator's manual. I would also check the sprocket drives, you should drain and refill, these take 90 weight gear oil as do the rollers. You should also grease the steering clutch pilot bearings, these seem to always get neglected, the zerk fitting is accessible through the plates on the rear of the tractor, 10 to 20 strokes of grease on these fittings. Get yourself an operator's manual, there are a lot of zerk fittings on these tractors, in the clutch area there are 7 fittings alone. The manuals show up on ebay, try to get an original, not a reprint. Lets see some pictures of your new tractor.
  20. Here we go, from IH Service Manual Form ISS-1032 B 6, 6 (61, 6 (62, 9, 9 (91) and 9 (92) series
  21. T4, T5 and TD5 specification sheet (partial) Appears they all have wet sleeves.
