    no its not home built, big old c frame style, would it weigh a ton? maybe only 1000 pounds dont know?

    Does it look like either one of these blades, these are the ag blades for the T340 series crawlers, the TD5 may be similar.

    Louie,  Someone is on Heavy Equipment Forums, dozer section that has a TD7-C and wants to know volume and type oil for transmission. No one seems to be responding. I had an early TD8-E and you needed to fill  and check in two places, then the newer ones in only one place. I didn't respond because I don't have the proper info for a 7C. Thanks.


    I am not on the Heavy Equipment Forums site; do you need more info than what's on the brochures? I do not have a TD-7C, I have a 100C which uses the same platform as the TD-7C, I can post more info from my owner's manual or from the service manual if you need it. Hy-Tran oil or equivalent is used in the power shift transmission and the rear main frame. I have been using NAPA 85-405 in my 100C for over 30 years with no issues.

    I think what he's saying is one has a high low range with a transmission lever, would be on the right, possibly the TD6 does not?, I usually go by the 2nd carrier roller between the sprocket and idler 6 has only 1 all the others have 2 to help support the upper weight of the track

    TD6 5 roller (extended track frame option) have two top idlers.

    no clutch pedal

    hand clutch?



    This is a TD340A, clutch pedal is on the far left, right pedal operates the brakes, the tall lever on the left with the round knob is the fast reverser. The two long levers on the right are hydraulic control valve levers. T and TD340's have planetary steering, no steering brake pedals.

  5. TD6 part number: 8503 DBX, TD6-61 8503 DCX, TD6-62 8503 DDX, the TD6 carrier uses a 1 inch plug, the 61 and 62 series use a 1-1/4 inch plug. They are the same aside from minor differences. These part numbers are for the carrier with the wide thread, the equipment combination (loader/sideboom) use a different carrier, 54 inch gauge verses 50 inch gauge. The sprocket drive pinion bearing is the same for the 61 and 62 series, TD6 has a different pinion bearing part number, I can't imagine the bearing pocket would not be the same. I can scan the parts book pages that covers the carrier if you need.

    My 500 has a 5 speed with a reverser.  There is no reverse in the transmission.  So I have 5 speeds forward and reverse and I never use 4th or 5th gear (I like my teeth and my back).  I put it in the gear I want then use the reverser.

    I don't understand, in your first post you said you only have reverse in 1st gear, now you say you put it in the gear you want and then you use the reverser? Do all forward gears work? If it's similar to the T340  fast reverser it would be a planetary reverser mounted in front of the transmission. If it is a planetary type reverser and it works in 1st gear it should work in all the gears. Can you post some pictures of the cockpit of the tractor showing the reverser lever and also of the gearshift selector? We will try to help you out.
