  1. Check the oil in both final drive planetary. I tried a 15C once and it ran and worked nice so I bought it. Got it home and was checking everything. One of the finals was full of metal. Lucky I had another planetary. Still lots of work. DWF
  2. You don't have to take the belly pan off on a 15C. Fuel filters are in the way, but that's easy. Make sure batteries are disconnected. I can see a loader's arms in the way though. DWF
  3. I had a 68 F1800 Loadstar years ago. It had a 345 with a 4 barrel carb. The guy I bought it from had bought a new or rebuilt 345 short block. Since the truck originally had a 392 with a 4 barrel, the guy installed the old manifold and 4 bbl carb on the 345. At least that;s the story he told. DWF
  4. I changed one on my TD-15C with the 466 engine. It was years ago sitting outside in Minnesota winter cold and snow. I think it had three bolts. As usual two fairly easy and one a SOB, long extension. DWF
  5. Bought a 59 TD9-92 in about 1974. It was yellow then, but where the paint was missing in spots, it showed red. DWF
  6. They said this happened in the pit, would not have been dumping there. Could be leaking fuel on the ground too. DWF
  7. Tamarack is really good for decking. It grows like a conifer but is very hard, strong, heavy and lasts for a long time. DWF
  8. I see where some say a company named Baum is a hydraulic place that has a lot of items. I've never used them, but others say it's a good place. DWF

    X 2, nothing wrong with dreaming and having discussion!
  10. Nice pics! Never operated an 18 but a 6, several 9's and a 14 in the winter too, but not freighting. You must be about done for the season? DWF
  11. The last few days this window "Service Unavailable" comes up when I'm on page 2 of the coffee shop. I will be reading a thread and when I'm done reading I hit the back button and that window comes up usually, but not every time only on page 2 of the coffee shop. I can be on page 2 of General IH and no problem. Page 1 of Coffee shop Okay and never go to Page 3. Any ideas? DWF
  12. Put this on the General IH side too. Dirtboyz07 is knowledgeable on pumps along with a few others that will probably see your thread. I had a TD9B and for the life of me can't remember that pump, must have never had trouble with it. I had a TD9-92 series with the DT282 engine and it had a Roosa Master pump. I remember that because I had it off for repair. DWF
  13. I had a TD-9B which was a 66 model with the DT282 engine. I bought it in 73 and used it in Northern Minnesota in the forest winter and summer. Never had a starting problem even well below zero. Never had a way of heating it either. DWF
  14. Sometimes that's a good idea to take a break from something like this. Once in a while an idea pops up or some one will have another idea. DWF
  15. Binderbooks.com has one listed. They are very good quality reprints. DWF
  16. I had a DT 236 jn a Galion grader and had the pump rebuilt and could not get fuel thru the pump. Let set overnight and part of the next day. Did the trick. DWF
  17. There is a reprint of an operator manual for sale on EBAY. DWF
  18. The operator's manual is what it's missing and that's true that that info is in that manual. I know that most of the construction machines would so with 10W oil in the hydraulics and transmission. A 165 is a made in Europe I believe, so I am unsure of the fluids. The engine I'm sure would be fine with 15W-40. Maybe someone on the Construction board would know more. DWF
  19. I made something like that when I did TD9 clutches, but that was over 40 years ago. They had a pattern or something in the service manual. DWF
  20. The steering levers need a little play before they disengage the steering clutches. If one has play and and the right has no play, then adjustment is needed. Could be leaking oil too which would cause slipping. You need some manuals. an operators and parts for sure. Maybe check ebay or Binder Books. DWF
  21. I was at the Chiropractor today and we got on the TP subject. He said they had two rolls of TP disappear at the office. I don't know when they caught it, but you'd think they'd have a good idea who the culprit was. I'm glad I never use their bathroom. DWF
  22. I think you're on the right track (no pun intended). Hopefully someone who really knows will confirm it. DWF
  23. I think the OP was thinking of the older TD-9's with the Drott loader. A TD-9 92 series has the long track frame and I believe it's tracks would fit. The older 9's had a shorter track frame, even with the loader. Perhaps the buckets would interchange though. DWF

    getting tested

    The hospitals will be full of pregnant women in 9 months. DWF
