  1. I know I had one like that, probably a loadstar F1800. I think it was a t64 maybe, anyway it went down and no parts available and ended up putting in a t36 I think, anyway, it was a more common transmission. DWF
  2. Also the weight that enforcement goes by is the manufacturer's rating, not what you have it licensed for. DWF
  3. Lucky they had 2 mirrors. I drove trucks of that vintage that only had a small mirror on the drivers side. DWF
  4. I used to haul wood in NE Minnesota. We hauled mostly like this (cross ways) unless we had longer logs 12' to 18', then length ways. On this truck they have to be for lumber as they are sorted. Pulp wood is usually smaller diameter. We had one mill that took tree length for a while, had to haul that on a semi trailer. I hauled with a truck and pup, but much smaller loads as we had different weight laws. DWF
  5. I have never heard of or seen one from Case. I was just on Yesterday's Tractor Massey Harris- Massey Ferguson site and someone said they had a good Massey Ferguson skidder. I did remember a guy having one of them in NE Minnesota back in the 70's. Another rare machine that I don't know what became of. FWD
  6. It would be a 1973. I believe it would be a D206 engine. TD7-E had the D239 engine. DWF
  7. By the early 60's the construction equipment from IH was yellow. Federal Yellow is like the TD15-C in my AVATAR. DWF
  8. Good luck with the baby and your pond! It's good to hear that some one will get some use out of the 20E. It was too good to scrap. DWF
  9. I just got a parts manual for my 770 Oliver tractor from Peacefullcreek. Very disappointed, poor quality. I have several JenSales manuals for a 44, 44Special, and 444 Massey Harris and they are better than what I got for the Oliver. DWF
  10. That's a big shovel dumping into that Fleetstar. Must have been a big shock to the suspension when the shovel operator tripped the bucket door. Does not open slowly like hydraulics. Nice pictures! DWF
  11. I don't know much, but I think they were made in Europe. Some one was on this site quite awhile ago that had one of these, perhaps you could search for the thread. DWF
  12. It must have went in the scrap pile sometime after the 15C left. Sorry I couldn't help. DWF
  13. I had one around for a TD-C. I will look if it's still here. DWF
  14. I had the same thing as Owen, probably in 1969 too. I went in the Army in 1970 and got out in 1972 and when I went to renew I had my choice too. In the 1980's I had to take a written test for air brakes. In 2007 got a part time job school bus driving, but I had to take a written and driving test for that. I moved from Mn to Wi in 2018 and when I went to Wisconsin DMV they said no problem to get Class A CDL, just pay. Lady saw that I had School bus endorsement, She said that I would have to start from scratch for that. Still driving bus today. DWF
  15. In the latest Red Power magazine there is an article by Bermuda Ken about this subject. DWF
  16. I had a 1966 TD-9B with a DT282. It was about 6 years old when I got it. Used it in the winter in NE Minnesota for logging. It started in well below zero weather with no problem. I don't remember using glow plugs with warm starts either. DWF
  17. Never had one but know a guy that did have one. He didn't have it long, he did not like it. DWF
  18. I've had good luck with CL over the years and of late too. DWF

    Hub studs

    Do you mean the threads going in to the hub or what is sticking out. You can buy studs. Those look like maybe 5/8" studs. DWF
  20. Looks like a 1020 Unit Crane, probably a 371 Detroit power. 10 stands for either 10 thousand pounds capacity or 10 tons, I can't remember. The 20 is for 20 cubic feet or .75 yards capacity for digging or for a shovel front. Years ago when I started driving I was loaded many times by a 514 Unit with a .5 yard shovel front. I learned how to back under it, you had to be spot on. It had a very smooth running straight 8 Chrysler engine. The Ford probably had a 332 V8 which was a common engine in that vintage truck. I don't know what the difference between it and the 330 other than the 330 is newer. DWF
  21. I had a 73 TD15-C crawler with a DT 466 engine that I bought in 1994. It did not have the coolant filter that has additives for anti-cavitation. I never at that time knew anything about additives, so it was just ran and probably changed anti freeze once due to a leak. Ran it until 2007 when I junked the 15C, not because of the engine but the rest was shot. So I ran it 13 years without doing any more than normal oil changes. DWF
  22. Go to Cusson, Mn on Hwy 53 just north of Orr, Mn. There is a sawmill there. He used to sell Tamarack probably still does. Cusson Camp Co. if I remember correct is the name. DWF
  23. Good to hear you had success! I had a 74 TD-8E for over 20 years, had good luck with it. DWF

    65 v190

    I suppose it could have hydraulic brakes, but most heavy trucks like that came with air brakes which would be much better. DWF
