T6 Restoration Pictures


Recommended Posts

Td-18,

Your restoration work is awesome! It also lets me see some of the components that might need refurbished on mine. Thank you for posting the pictures as you finish the assembly!

Your weather and background looks very nice.

Regards,

 Chris

 Wow 10 more projects! Awesome. 

Building questions:

What size are your overhead doors?

What is your ceiling height? 

I am working on a building design. Yours is nice and clean and organized!

Regards,

Chris

td-18,

Yes. Thanks! I have plans for a 10 foot ceiling height and 9 foot doors. My building is very near my house and another building and I dont think 12 foot eaves would look right. The only thing I have that would not fit in at this time is our camper. Its going to have to set outside! That is a very nice building you have! 

I was telling a friend about your work. He has my TD6 at his place and has found some better undercaraige parts that he would like to switch over. We will see. He did adjust the engine drive clutch, which had to be a real challange of standing on his head!

Regards,

 Chris

That is absolutely world class restoration work on the narrow gauge, that is one heavy duty engine stand that 6 cyl block is sitting on? Others lying in wait?

 Wow does that looks sharp! Almost makes me want to rip the loader off mine and rebuild it. Maybe someday??

 I am getting my shop dried in for winter. Not sure the TD6 will get in there soon?

You sure have done a nice job on the restoration work on your T6!

 Fantastic! Thanks for the pictures and inspiration.

Regards,

 Chris

The 6 cylinder block is for my caterpillar D5 serial number 9M27 , one of 46 made in 1939 .

The T6 is just beyond stellar !!

TD18,

 What does that weigh stripped down? about 4 ton?

Also back to a building question: What do you have on your inside walls? They looks clean and bright.

I am still building walls That i think I need inside the shop. 

Regards,

 Chris
