  1. Louie is right, tighten the clutch is clockwise. DWF
  2. A lot of people say re hook at the idler, but I have had good luck at the rear of the sprocket, so whatever works. usually need to loosen the tension too. DWF
  3. They were a good grader, a lot of them still in use. A DD came with an Allis Chalmers 6cyl diesel lik used in a D17. Probably engine failed, thus the JD transplant. Probably the 4cyl AC gas engine was more common. DWF
  4. Sounds good. It's amazing that there is still something a person needs. Dirtboyz has a TD-20 with that engine too.Good Luck with it! DWF
  5. Pede is right. You just have to take off one of those plates for oil change. Like I said, starter will come out not too hard. DWF
  6. I changed a starter on a 15C in the cold Minnesota winter out in the woods. Didn't have to take any covers on the bottom off. 15C's don't have a removable belly pan like other models. DWF
  7. Hydreco pump was common back in the day. I had one in an HD-6 Allis and I think one in an early TD-9 Drott. The Allis was a loader too. DWF
  8. McMaster-Carr has a good selection of Bridge Reamers. I had to make some 1/2 inch holes into 3/4 inch holes on a truck frame in a tight area. Worked good with a 1/2 inch drill. They aren't cheap, but are worth it for that type of work. DWF
  9. That should work. I had a 15C and can't remember putting oil in thru the dipsick. I still have a 530 loader with a 466. You fill it thru the dipstick hole, but it is maybe 1.25" diameter with the spin on T handle that tightens a rubber plug and the dipstick is attached to it. DWF
  10. At least it has the cat style tracks, a lot of them, that vintage still had the old shovel style flat pad type tracks. I had 1973 Bantam that had the new style tracks and looked at buying a 690A John Deere same vintage that still had the old style undercarriage. DWF
  11. like Hardtail says, ag tractors like Farmall MD or International WD6. DWF
  12. I can't help you other than you would need measurements. They did use a 414 in late model H65's. Good to see you back on here again. DWF
  13. I have a Dresser TD-9H dozer and run 10W oil in the hydraulics but the transmission has Shell oil like hy tran. I bought a 624G JD loader and the manual said to use HyGard in everything but the engine. I asked the shell dealer about using the oil I used in the TD-9 trany in the JD. He said no because the JD needs an additive in the oil otherwise it hurts the wet brakes, differential and hydraulics are common fluid on the JD. DWF
  14. I don't believe there is any way to get that info, a lot of that type of info no longer exists. DWF
  15. That's very near me where they are at, but I don't need either and not both for sure. DWF
  16. You will have more speed with the bigger tires, but less power. Your jack looks like mine, have had it for years and have others in between but that orange one is the best. DWF
  17. 590D was the same as a Hitachi EX 150. The last truly built John Deere was a 690E in the mid 1990's. All 690's were John Deere designed. The 590D had a John Deere engine and the Hitachi had an Isuzu engine. DWF
  18. I had several older TD-9's, This was in about 1973 or so and was, if I remember right a 1950 TD-9. Sleeves needed to come out and we were using ready rod which kept breaking. Went to a shop and had a rod made and threaded out of much stronger steel. Sleeves still did not want to come out. I got some dry ice and put in the inside sleeve area and hot water in the block and they all came out fairly easy. Don't ask me any more info as it's beem too long for my memory. DWF
  19. 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
  20. Thanks for the update! There are a lot of us that just like when things are repaired properly. DWF
  21. I'm happy that you got it out! I'll bet you are happier than me.Good luck to you. DWF
