  1. That’s pretty good, couple guys in our area did same thing. Die hard green too...

    Cool pictures 👍👍
  3. Nice job, looks like you got a decent shop to work in too👍. What vintage would that girl be? I remember seeing a TD 25 at Allen Olsen auction back in mid 90s. If I’m not mistaken it had a Cummins?
  4. According to tractor data they were only built in 84 & 85. That one might have been painted. Dealership where I worked painted a 4994 same way.
  5. Same here too, only ever saw 2 thru dealer where I worked in 6 years. The 6 speed 94s were pretty decent units when they came out. Lots sold in summer of 87 during the fire sale.
  6. I was in my 2nd year of heavy duty mech & one of my instructors gave me the news. He was an old Case guy & we always had an ongoing back & forth about case & IH. He got a few good shots in that day. Left the shop in fall & it was IH. Back to work in new year & was CaseIH.
  7. 3294 was kinda odd duck too, had 2294 rear housing & if I remember correctly, no actually park gear like others had. Used a park brake like 4wds. Don’t think there was ever a red 32 & they were not available with 6 speed powershift like the 23,33,25 & 35s
  8. Yes, the K30’s & 35s had wider rails behind the cab. I found out the hard way about spring perch width few years ago converting a K35 to a 25. Thought I’d just unbolt that Dana 70 & set in a 14bolt semi float, ended up changing spring hangers & then was good. Nice rig by the way too👍👍
  9. I know the cab & chassis had 14bolt full float & pick up box had Dana 70. Maybe there’s a difference in track between the 2.
  10. Dad & grampa had a 1066 hydro with deluxe cab from early 70s to 87. If the a/c quit, it got fixed. Sure it was noisy, but ear phones helped a bunch. That cab was really nice with good A/C, it would freeze you out & cab & heat was nice on those -30 days & wind blowing feeding cows.

    I drove a T800 in mid 90s for 2 years, they were probably the most universal truck at the time. They were a decent highway truck, rode good with the long front spring in set back axle, turned good, decent visibility & good resale. Mullen ran lots of them & never had trouble selling after highway days were over. Tridrives have been reasonably priced in last few Richie sales in Nisku due to patch being slow. Far as weight, unless they are running US(80;000) Anything else up here is around 100,000 for tandem tractor / tridem trailer. Or super B trains. Tandem tractor/ tridem lead/ tandem pup. 137,000. Heavy haulers are anything above , just add jeeps or booster or 16 or 24 wheel lowboys. Or mulitaxle heavy haul trailers.

    The light rear ends might be a US thing too, up here on the prairies we haven’t saw 38s in rears for years. 40s & 46s are the norm. 18 speed been the trans of choice since mid to late 80s. Most trucks were spec’d to pull trains(137,000lbs) or oilfield use. Usually largest engine available too. Cat or Cummins most popular too. For heavy duty oilfield or logging was usually a T800 or C500 KW or Western Stars. When the patch was going it was KW or Stars for Bed trucks too. I’ve put close to 2 million miles on KW & maybe only 100K on a Pete. So I’m pretty biased too.
  14. Sorry to hear about this, will be thinking of them.
