  1. Transmission would take HyTran or a good generic brand (no yellow can) same with the steering clutches, Hydraulics 10W emgine oil, or AW32 hydraulic oil, finals 80-90 gear oil. engine oil I would use 15W-40 or a straight weight, green anti freeze. I had a 74 TD-8Efor years, a great machine. Late 70's they changed transmissions. DWF
  2. Glad you found something that should work for you! Good luck with it and thanks for posting back. DWF
  3. 1959 for the 92 series, I had Serial number 706, probably the 205th one made. DWF
  4. They look to be similar to a TD-15E, but probably smaller parts. Not like a 15C at all. DWF
  5. Big black bear was strolling through the neighbor's corn field a week ago. The bear went through my back yard and into the woods. It was big, neighbor saw it too, said at least 500 lbs. DWF
  6. That's a great story with a happy ending! DWF
  7. I'm happy that you got it out! I'll bet you are happier than me.Good luck to you. DWF
  8. Really a great looking car! When I was a kid in the late 50's, neighbors had a 1920's Buick a four door I think. Never saw it go any where, don't know what ever happened to it. My math says 92 years old for your Buick. DWF
  9. IH Oak go to the construction equipment board on this forum, there is a guy working on a TD-9 doing the same thing as you, at least read it and there are pictures. DWF
  10. Slant four would be half of a V-8, so 304 would be 152, 392 half would be 196. DWF
  11. There is a quite large Northwest Dragline being used dredging up sand for a concrete plant just north of Eau Claire, Wi on the east side of Hwy 53. It is in plain view. DWF
  12. Thanks, always nice when someone replies back after the problem is cured. DWF
  13. Go over on the construction site, someone is also working on getting an engine out. DWF
  14. Has not been on here for over 3 years. DWF
  15. I have never been around a H60, but have had some newer IH and Dresser loaders. Almost always, at least the ones I've been around, you check the oil while running. That vintage probably used Dexron ATF or 10W engine oil, The ones I have had said either or. DWF
  16. 6.50/8.87 was a common ratio on some of the old Ford F-800's I drove years ago. I drove a couple different 1955's used as 5 yard dump trucks and a 63 F-850 used as a tractor for pulling lowboy or a 36' flatbed. They weren't fast, but did a good job in their day. DWF
  17. I live in Barron County, I don't know how many, but the guys at coffee said quite a few shot around here. DWF
  18. Most of them have an oil pressure sender with power to one side and once the engine is running then power to the hourmeter. DWF
  19. I have not had a blow out on my tandem dump for several years until last summer, first was on a Saturday not too far from home, it was an outside tire, believe it or not. Second one was several weeks later. I was on about 24 mile haul, about five miles into the last load of the day when it blew, slowed way down and made it and dumped the load and came home and changed the inside blow out. DWF
  20. I still have this TD9-H. Had several other TD-9's and a 14A and my favorite was a TD15-C, sold it as I didn't need one that size. DWF
  21. Yes, thanks much for your work! DWF
  22. I had one just like that back in the 70's. Direct drive with a turbo, was a good dozer. DWF
  23. I had prostate removed June 5, 2020. Surgery went fine, catheter 10 days. Laid low for about 4 weeks then started driving dump truck a little. After six weeks started operating the bulldozer, then the excavator and chainsaw some. All along had incontinence and still having some, but is much better now. I had PSA test at 3 months said it was 0.1, Doc said that was okay. Had PSA again at 6 months, Doc said 0.1, not good, wants it 0.0. Going again next month for the 9 month test, will see what that shows. I have had PSA tests done since 2004 and they always showed that I had some PSA. DWF
  24. I'd say a little South and East of Rice Lake. I live 6 miles west of Rice Lake. DWF
  25. I was a contract logger for Potlatch in NE Minnesota in the 80's thru about 2006. They sold the Paper mill in Cloquet to Sappi and then the three OSB plants around 2004. The OSB plants were sold to a Canadian Company called Ainsworth that everyone was told had big plans for the plants. They closed all of them by the end of 2007 and took out all the machinery in the plants and sent them to Canada. Potlatch has a stud mill left in Minnesota that's still running. They were the largest private land owner in Minnesota and have since sold most of the land. Back in the 90's they were great to contract for, but everything went down hill from there. DWF
