Hello dozers, Had one come up for sale too close to me and look what happened I have several questions but a couple will do for now. This unit started life going six ways, now only four. The angle cylinders have been removed and replaced with manually adjustable stops. The spool that was originally used for them is frozen in the valve. My plan is to 'T' into the supply ahead of the valve and add a single spool valve I have extra. I need angle cylinders. Would anybody have access to originals to measure them well enough I can order or have made new ones? Does anybody have originals to sell? I am also doing a fluid change. On the bottom is a plate, shaped like a T. The cavity is where the hydraulic line exits from, I'm assuming this is the pressure side. Is this where the filter or sump screen is located? Is it a dry cavity? Meaning if I take it off is it going to drown me? Thanks
Hi Guys, great forum. I've been digging through it looking for info on a tractor I just bought-my first. I've got a lot of work to do and after thinking about all the ways it could go, and the cost, decided to buy an old tractor and do it myself. Never drove one before and know very little about them. I found an International (Drott Skid Shovel) for sale and went for it. The seller knew very little about it as it was left to him. What I knew was that with a jump it started up quick and sounded solid. The bucket works good and raises high, the scraper works good, the brakes good, forward and reverse good, right turns good, left not so hot but goes with a little coaxing. 500 hours on it. Some seals leak a little. The guy said it was a diesel but it is a gas engine. MODEL # 340K3 SERIAL # A2673 I'm a metal fabricator and have been working on cars for 20+ years but this is a new area for me. The first thing I've been trying to figure out is exactly what I bought and where I can get a service manual. From this site and Yesterday's Tractors I think I have a 1960 T340 with a gas engine, but still can't find a service manual. If anyone can confirm I'm right or wrong I'd be grateful (see photos in gallery), and any advice on the manual or anything else would be great at this point. I've driven it about 100 yards and want to run through it all a little before I really start pushing it. I fired it up today and moved it around a bit. Everything seems to work great except turning left. When turning right the lever immediately engages and the tractor begins spinning. When turning left I can feel the play in the lever. As I pull it back it seems to do nothing until it's almost all the way back. At the last inch or so of throw it engages and turns a bit. If I go slow and keep pulling it back and forth it turns left one little bit at a time. This is the main issue I'd like to figure out how to fix. Also, leaking seals on half of the hydraulics. I thought if I could get a manual there would be a part number or spec for a seal I could get, but an old timer up the road came by and was telling me the old models like this don't have seals but packing material that is cut to fit. All new to me and would like to confirm this too and get those sealed up. Thanks.
