Hey Chris, 

I am having some issues with my starter.  More specifically the starter bendex.  Do you by chance have a picture that end of your starter, before you installed it?

Hank,

 I have a pile of pictures, not sure if I have that shot. If I do it should be posted in here. Might be back a year or so? I also seen KoO on the forum yesterday. He may have a picture too? Knock on wood! My starter worked real good today.

Folks,

I did some work with the 6 filling some holes where I had stumps removed.

This was not a large project, couple hours total,  the TD6 did a good job of moving some dirt, and back scraping it fairly level. Temp came right up to the low end of the RUN temp on the gage and stayed there. Thermostat seems to be working good and I did not have any burp out at the neck of the rad so that farmer fix seems to be ok for now too.

Thanks for checking on me!

Regards,

Chris

Chris,how did you resolve your slack adjuster issue?

exSW,

I moved the idler forwards and inserted a spacer ring to take up the gap. About 1 inch spacer was required on the left side and the right side actually moved and I used the original threaded adjuster to move that side about 1/2 inch. The tracks are considerably better than they were for tightness. It was a farmer fix. My Uncle Jack (previous owner) would have been proud of me!:)

 

Was just thinking. That has been a year ago and one back surgery already! Wow time flies!

Regards,

Chris

Folks,

 Lazy this week! Its our local fair week. I moved 4 tractors to the fair yesterday.  I don't have enough trailer to haul the TD6 so it sets at home.  Weather is dark and dreary today. Supposed to get nicer for remainder of week. TD6 sets waiting for some work or attention.  May try to start it just to see how it does. Been a couple years with this tractor now. The folks on here have sure helped me get through some basic maintenance work on it. Could not have got to this point with out your help! THANKS!

I may have mentioned but I am currently working on a refurb, clean and paint of a off color WD45.  That has kept me busy and broke all summer and will be completed next year hopefully. 

Thanks for checking in on me too.

Regards,

 Chris

Hi Chris,

Enjoy reading your posts ... and watching and hearing about your progress on your TD6... 

Replaced a bottom roller on my TD9 yesterday... I managed to find a couple decent rollers at Brown International for $100.00 apiece.. 

Would like to see pics of the tractors you took to the fair..

Grant, Folks,

 May not be the best pictures. The sun was just setting and made a lot of weird shadows! These are the tractors we took to the Albion (PA)

1953 Ford Jubliee, starting to look used because we are using it to brushhog the daughters property. This was my first large tractor purchase about 4 years ago. Was restored about 10 years ago by previous owners.

Next is my grandson Nic's 1950 Allis WD. This was his grandfathers, my dads first Allis on the farm. I did a refurb clean and paint a couple years ago. It was very rough when I bought it from a family member who had farmed with it since the early 70's

This 1950 Allis WD came from the same Uncle that had my dads narrow front WD. I did the refurb, clean and paint just prior to the other WD. It was very worn in all areas!

I purchased this 1958 Allis D17 about 2 years ago at a local auction. Did some minor fixes. It has been a good tractor. I like to pull this one. Still in its work clothes it has had one paint job in its life. Wrong decals and wrong color grill.

This 1950 WD is my friend Gary's pulling tractor.

We will be pulling all these at the fair on Friday and or Saturday. I am hoping Nic pulls all of mine too. I will be helping hook or flag.

 

Regards,

 Chris

Folks,

 I havent updated for a while. Time moves right along. 

Hope things are good in Red land!

The grandson did real good at the local fair and placed in 6 of the 8 pulls he entered. Two firsts, Two seconds, a third and a fourth place!

The TD6 is tarped and ready for winter. I would like to get it out one more time before the snow flies, but am going to have to hurry as the weather is turning colder. Might be a good test for the starter and new cables. 

Just brought the Allis WD45 frame into the garage for work (refurb clean and paint), during the winter.

Considering a old Ford truck as a possible next project.

Regards,

 Chris

Awesome man glad to see you are hopelessly hooked on restored machines.  Join me in darned vile and start working on the Ford but make sure its bigger than the trucks other people do so parts will be extra hard to find and truly give you the joy of part hunting.

Tanker,

Well now that you mention it there is a ex firetruck (cab and frame only), that would just fit that bill! I know you have a big Chevy in the future plans too. I also looked at a 56 and a 55 Ford pickup that need everything! This fire truck would be of similar size as your Chevy. Its a 1956 Ford F-800 Big Job. Dayton wheels and all the big heavy stuff!! I just don't know what I would do with it when I got it done??? OK wait, I have way too many big toys now that I just play with! It would just be another part of the collection addiction. Oh yes it would be a joy finding parts for a old Lincoln  truck engine! I will think about it! Thanks for the gentle push!

Regards,

Chris

Tanker,

 I don't need much of a push to get into trouble oh evil one on my shoulder! I guess I had not thought about hauling other old stuff to shows, but that could be a excuse to acquire another project.

 By the way how are you doing on your big Chevy truck? Do you plan a full body off restoration?

Regards,

 Chris

Folks,

 Winter seems to have begun its grip in our neck of the woods. Another gray day, but I feel thankful we are not washed away, or on fire like some of our members in Florida or California! (FYI Erie did get 6 to 10 inches of snow on last Saturday!)

We just finished up archery season in PA. Seems like I have been hunting for a month, wait I have been!:) Looking forward to the first day of buck hunting with the '06, the Monday after Thanksgiving! Last year I barely made it out due to back surgery! Dang I am glad I had that done!

Hope things are good!

Regards,

 Chris
