  1. 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.

  2. 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.

    They were also know as 'Awfull Westerns' They were good for plowing snow. The city I grew up in had two of them. They could go around tight corners thanks to 4 wheel steering. These had Detroit Diesels, but a lot of them came with IH engines.

  4. 22.5 will mount right on. You will need 11.5X22.5 to match the diameter of 10:00X20 and 10.5X22.5 to match 9:00X20. You should not run the 22.5 on the same hub with a 20 wheel.

  5. The only brake is the two pedals on the floor and make sure it is in neutral and clutch lever ahead. I suppose the brakes could be rusted to the steering clutches, but you would not think so being it's been inside.

  6. I had a TD-15C for quite a few years. Always used regular green anti-freeze. I had a tilt on the blade too, can't remember for sure, but probably used AW-32 hydraulic oil. I can't see why you would need anything special for the tilt, 10W would work too.
