    ,,it is a BTD6......designated   ''Z 100"  ,,,I had one ...also a Z125     which was a BTD8....The "Z" prefixed IH equipment made under license in New Zealand...from a humble trailed ''top dresser'' thru to this sort of equipment...

    The engine  BD264  is common only to ''British Diesel ''   engines fitted into wheel and crawler tractors...There also was a BD264 petrol engine fitted into IH trucks of an early vintage.. This used to give me a lot brain botulism trying to figure that out, back in the early daze of   this fine RPsite....

    Your engine is a late model consistent with the   loader...as it has the Simms ''Mini-Mec'  injection pump.....  Before you remove that clutch  check out that side final drive for unwanted pinion gear parts , lying in the bottom of the housing...To get those last two studs from under that mess of shite that will be in the dry clutch housing, requires several salient points to consider...An exhaustive profanity vocabulary is the first  of many points....Specialty 3/8th drive sockets  and accessories  are the only way I have been able to loosen those basturd studs off.....and remember, if you ever get sufficient parts for repair /replacement etc...that the piece of cunningly engineered IH steel that is removed following the full stud removal, only fits  one way back in  !!!!!   Yes you can fit two studs in and think you are home and hosed ..but NO..

    ...and you have to compress the clutch pack using fully threaded high tensile    (3 off )  studs.....more fun

    Your engine woes can be cured by a very ''shabby ''foreign made kit......or could be....(My own TD's only require clutches freed..all three...)...All the original glow plugs will be totally copulated....You can get Toyota Land Cruiser plugs plus the necessary adapters, which are waaaay ahead of the non available IH replacements on all counts...

    ,...and so on...Curious thing about that track frame ..my eyes are about the stage your pin and bush group is...but I don't recall those carriers rollers like that and also it appears that frame has only four bottom rollers.....unless there is one up front , at the point of that knackered track gaurd.....There should  be....and I had an agricultural model with the five roller frame..back in the good ol' days   or daze.

    Big issue with the track loader that every thing attacked in the back ends is made doubly difficult  with all that pig iron hanging of it....

    I am happy to help further but am heading offshore for 17 /18 daze...thus won't be  responsive for awhile.... I have a lot of parts for American TD 6's but buggar all for BD264   powered TD's.....

    You need to find someone with hands like a five yr old boy but with the strength of a diary farmer   for those clutch bearing bolts etc...Luck !!


    Mike, the TD6-62 loader also had the front top idler mounted as the BTD6. Was the BTD6 built on the same chassis as the TD6 but used the British engine? They look similar in some areas but different in other areas. The TD6-62 Drott used a wider gauge than the TD6-62 dozer, 52 inch gauge compared to the 50 inch gauge TD6 dozer. According to the info on serial numbers pinned at the top the BTD6 was built 1955 - 1975, the B100 1964 -1978, then the 100B series 2, is this correct? There is not a lot of info out there on the British built IH crawlers.

    I have a 656 Hydro with the D282

    Put a Holset turbo from  a 5120 on a few years ago -- the engine is much happier with a little air pushed into it

    Did you have the injection pump modified? I put a turbo on a D282, I did not notice much improvement in power, I then had the pump modified to TD9B Ag speciation, that woke that 282 up.

  3. I don't think it's a 91 or 92 series, the engine compartment looks 9B, also the hood seems to be too high to be a 91 or 92 series. It may even be a British built crawler. Let's see what Mike chimes in with. There is a 9B that is red about 3 miles from me, I will take some pictures next time I pass by

    I have a repo manual but you are right about the quality

    Ebay item number:373091851627  here is a OEM manual on ebay now, he's asking $102.00 or best offer with free shipping.

    Hmm interesting good to know. Must have just been an option back then? 

    I knew of one 62 series in my area that was bought with the low seat attachment, the thought was that you had a lower center of gravity, when I bought mine I inquired about the difference, I was told it was less than 3% by the dealer. The high seat is much more comfortable to operate than the low seat. Some called the low seat attachment the orchard version although a true orchard version is much lower and has many modifications to it. This is an Orchard conversion by a IH dealer that was located in Mountain View, Calif. I bought two of these to use as parts tractors. The two tractors I bought had the radiators lowered also to get them as low as possible.

  6. Most of the ones I have seen have been red, I have seen a couple of TD6's that had black housings but that may have been the owners choice when repainting the tractor. Another thought is the lights were an option, they may have had some black lights in the parts bin when they were putting the lights on as a dealer installed option.

  7. There was a high seat attachment and a low seat attachment. The high seat has the batteries underneath the seat, the low seat attachment has the battery on the left fender. These pages are out of the parts manual for the TD6-62 series. The TD6 and TD6-61 series parts book has the low seat attachment shown, it does not have a diagram of the high seat but does show part numbers for the high seat attachment. My neighbor has a narrow gauge TD6 with the high seat attachment, batteries are under the seat.

    Do you have to remove the final drives to change out the outside brakes

    Do you have the service manual for your tractor, if not get one, it walks you through the process. Try to find an original, the reproduction manuals are of poor quality. Ebay is a good source to find the original manuals.

    Where did you get the lining the best I found was $3000.00

    I had then relined by FleetPride in San Jose, CA, I believe they are nationwide, FleetPride.com, 800-967-6206. FleetPride had the lining, the complete job was $757.88 for all 8 shoes, they bonded the lining onto my shoes. Friction Works in Norwalk OH advertises lining on Ebay, they want 145.00 each piece plus shipping, you have to bond the lining onto your shoes. Look at the picture with the loose lining at the bottom, that is from Friction Works.

  10. There are a total of four shoes with the bearings and four backup shoes, eight total for right and left. The lining is the same for both. TD8C and E and TD7C and E use the same pieces. I am doing mine now.

    A little update for anyone who cares...

    Started getting the engine and torque converter assembly ready to pull on the 100C. With all the extra frame of the crawler loader, and the older "large transmission" it leaves a lot to be desired for room when working under the floor. Got the belly pans pulled to clean them out and make it easier to access hoses to remove them. They were FULL of dirt, rat poop, and pine cones.


    Removing the U joint bolts has been one of the most challenging things so far. Hard to access, and can only fit one arm in at a time. Then figuring out how to hold the yoke while I break the allen head bolts loose on the U joint was difficult. Took me 3.5 hours to get 4 U joint bolts out.


    Removing the flywheel access cover I think I can confirm my suspicion. The torque converter spins freely with one finger while the flywheel sits still. With a flashlight I can see the crack in the flexplate. 


    Dan, I have the twin to your 100C, it's a 1972 model I bought in '76, I had the torque convertor spring a leak in '84, we pulled the engine to remove the torque converter, I don't remember it being a bad job, I did lengthen the loader safety bar to lock the bucket higher, we used a cherry picker to remove the engine through the front, it was a close fit between the bucket and the top of the grill. They are great little tractors, we have not had any major problems with the tractor, it still runs great.

  12. I have an update on the brake and steering clutch lining for the IH 100, 125, TD7, TD8, C and E models. I am having the lining replaced on my 100C, in the above post I stated the lining to be .141-.147, I purchased one lining just to get the measurements, the lining I purchased measured out at .186 but that is with the adhesive on the back, I did not know they came with adhesive on them, measuring just the lining I came up with .147-.148. I purchased the lining off of Ebay, however it came from FrictionWorksLLC, 4598 Whittlesey Road, Norwalk, OH, phone is 419-6771167 for anyone wishing to do their own relining. The shoe material is the same size for both size tractors. I am not into bonding my own linings, I am having it done by a brake material bonding shop in San Jose Calif. who is supplying the lining. This same company did the relining in the '80's for me. I will say the lining I took out still measures .137-.141, one of the linings is starting to delaminate from a shoe so I am having all redone. Wet brakes seem to not wear at all. I am posting the bonding instructions sent with the brake shoe. Michael Brewster is Friction Works.

  13. Guys, thank you but everyone on here is what makes this forum so great. Thank you to all the others that give there input here on all subjects.

    Yes, it's crock when certain items cannot be shipped to this State, a few years ago I ordered Federal Safety yellow paint from our local ACE hardware where I had been getting it previous years, they cannot sell that paint to us in Calif. anymore so I ordered it from an ACE in Reno NV. no problem but they did have to get it from the warehouse, the warehouse is in Sacramento Calif.

  14. BinderDan and junkandcattle,  Thank you very much, this forum has a bunch of great people here. I ordered 4 of the boots from Chicago Machinery, only problem is with our government here, Chicago Machinery would not ship to California, they said the boots have cancer causing material in them, so I had the boots shipped to a friend in TN, he will then ship to me. Any how I thank all of the good people on this forum for the help.
