There is a guy down the road a piece from us that is trying to sell a T-9 with a 10 foot blade. He says it is a Diesel but from what I have been able to find the T-9 was only gas. His Father-in-law stuck both engines many years ago. I don't have pictures but I am going to see it this afternoon. He said he would sell it for scrap. I don't know exactly what scrap is but operating weight is 10,700 Lbs. I haven't looked into parts for a rebuild but I am sure it won't be cheap. Were there any general problems that they had? Are there any special problems I should look for with the UC? Thanks.
We were very excited to start this TD9 last week. Here are two short videos: TD9 starting Switchover to diesel: It was so old, there was a tree growing between the blade and the dozer. I don't think the carb is working because we were dumping gas into the intake manifold to get it to run. Miraculously, it switched over to diesel and ran for a little while before dying. Now that we know it works we have a few questions: What is the start procedure? In particular, what is the control to the right of the choke that rotates? Is it for the butterfly valve in the carb? Wh
