    It looks like you have teeth on the bucket. It would be too easy to say ouch, that was close or worse. I have a 36" tooth bucket for my ZX-160, but also a 42" with no teeth, just a cutting edge. I still would be concerned for a mishap DWF
  2. I had a TD8E and one time the starter locked up and I remember taking the belly pan off. No fun, but you have to do what you got to do, DWF

    distributor cap

    Really a good looking truck! DWF
  4. I had a 95 ZR580 EFI with a battery, a buddy bought a 95 ZR580 carbureator, I always got better mileage with the EFI. Both of us rode just as hard or just as easy, whatever. Another buddy bought a 96 ZR580 carb and he always got the best mileage when all 3 of us were riding. In 97 I bought a EXT 600 triple and I always got the best mileage and they couldn't keep up with me. Had lots of fun. I still have an 05 Sabrecat 500, but don't ride much anymore. Had it out a couple of weeks ago though. DWF
  5. I got some manuals for my Oliver 770 from Peaceful Creek. Not very good at all. I got a couple of manuals for an older Galion grader from Binder Books, they were good. A lot of people say JenSales are poor quality. I have some for my Massey Harris 44SP and 444 from JenSales, but they are over 20 years old. Slightly better than the Oliver manuals though. DWF
  6. I lived in NE Mn for most of my life, A lot of people were decendents of people that came from Slovenia in Europe. They made what they called Canibal Meat which was raw hamburger. They served it on crackers with pepper and salt. Mostly at Christmas time. I had some, it was good, but would not want a steady diet of it. DWF
  7. long way from a 1970 like it says in the ad. DWF
  8. Okay, that makes sense. That never crossed my mind. It must have been more for ag tractors. Where I came from TD-6's were the most popular, but a few T6's too. I never saw a T6 with that option, but most in our area were used for logging and mostly winter use. You sure have done great work! DWF
  9. Why does it have the starting gas tank on a T6? DWF
  10. I have a friend that ordered a 2022 3500 Chev Siverado in Sept of 21. It finally was made in Mexico in June of 22. It was then shipped to Detroit and sat there for a month. He finally got it in July of 22. DWF
  11. Dresser is the company that purchased IH construction equipment in the early 80's The factory in Poland produced certain dozers. The same size Dresser dozers were still manufactured in Poland, but using the Cummins built engines which at least in the late 90's, which my machine is, were using metric threads while the dozer itself, were U.S. or inch threaded parts. Sorry for the confusion Ace. The factory in Poland is still making dozers for Dressta which is owned by a Chinese company. DWF
  12. I have a Dresser TD9-H dozer that was made in an old IH factory in Poland. All bolts etc are U.S. thread. The engine was made in USA by Cummins for Dresser, all Metric. DWF
  13. No it had a 504 Case engine which I think was underpowered for all the hydraulics that were on it. This was actually a spinoff of the old Drott's that turned to be Case's after Case purchased Drott. The Drott;s ran 4-71 Detroits. Another logger had an early Case from the mid 70's, a little smaller than the 1187 that we had and it had a Case engine vs the Detroit he had previously. He was very disappointed with the Case engine too. I can't remember what year the 1187 was, but in the 80's I believe. DWF
  14. When I was logging we had a Case track feller-buncher that had a 504 engine. The nachine was good, but a lot of trouble with the engine. DWF

    TD-20 had them, Dirtboyz has one of them. Very un common engine. DWF
  16. 6.50/8.87 was a common two speed on older gasoline engine trucks. DWF

    I had a 1969 Galion 503A grader and it came with a D-236 engine. DWF
  18. There used to be numbers stamped on the pinion shaft where the yoke is, For instance 9-42 means 9 teeth on the pinion and 42 teeth on the ring gear. 42 divided by 9 = 4.67. DWF
  19. I saw one of those pins in one of my drawers, probably for a 3-53 in a Timberjack skidder or could be from a 8V-71, had both of them years ago. DWF
  20. I think the Freeman Company of Grand Forks ND really got the headbolt heater going. I know my Dad had them back in the 50's DWF
  21. All the TD-9's had 12 volt systems. DWF
  22. That sure is a good looking 190! I had a 67 RF190 back in the late 80's. It was one of the later R190's. Thanks for the pics. DWF
