Td-9 help


350 diesel

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I recently bought a td9 it's been sitting in a shed for a long time, I managed to get it up and out of it's holes, but I can only make the tracks only move about an inch. Is there a parking break or steering clutch that's lock on? Any help is appreciated, as I'm on a bit of a time crunch to get it moved.

The only brake is the two pedals on the floor and make sure it is in neutral and clutch lever ahead. I suppose the brakes could be rusted to the steering clutches, but you would not think so being it's been inside.

Is it possible that the tracks are bound up? Ive seen bigger machines with bound tracks. 5-10 gallons of drain oil and patience  freed them up.. back and forth, back and forth.

In a shed, down in the dirt! ---- Ya you got  a major job ahead of you and it will be VERY slow process to ever get the tracks loose. Sheds are a machines worst enemy! --- they always sweat during most of the year and never dry out in there.

Clutches will be stuck! --- I had 4 9's over the years and all of them had stuck clutches when I got them. 3 of them were still stuck when I sent them to chimna!

As stated, -- soak with diesel fuel and used oil at 50-50 mix and hook a BIG tractor on each end and go back and forth til they give.

Your steering clutches will be stuck and can only be gotten loose by taking them out and clean the plates in them and put it all back together. Do not leave them sit for long periods of time without using them or they will stick again.

Is the motor stuck? check that before you do anything else---if motor turns with master clutch lever snapped forward then master is not stuck. If motor is stuck then master could also be stuck and then nothing is going to roll. all you can do is drag it.

If you gotta do a fast move, get 2 wreckers and lift it up and back your truck under it and go!

9's are notorious for stuck clutches and stuck injection pumps. Also they LOVE front main bearing shells! All4 of mine ate the front shell and broke all the timing gears!

Mine had that same blade that yours has. Its a Dakota blade and they are a very nice blade but just need to be mounted on something other than a 9.

Dont get me wrong here---a 9 , when it runs will do a lot of work but they are next to impossible to keep running.

Good luck on your venture!

It should roll to load with stuck steering clutches. Just that it will only go straight forward and back. If you can get it in neutral it should roll to load even with a stuck master clutch.
