Folks,

 Adjusted the brake shoes per the book and what a difference. I can actually steer the beast! Pull the steering lever, hit the brake and she will spin right around. I didnt even run a track off yet! Took the better part of a day. Studying, removing items, finding springs, cleaning grease and adjusting.

Still lots to do!

Regards,

 Chris

Folks,

 With this warm weather I had a chance to drain the peanut butter colored oil from the transmission. filled with kerosene and moved it  up and down the drive in all the gears. Drained and filled with 80W gear lube. Ran the dozer up on blocks and was able to get to the engine oil pan and drain the very black oil. Getting NAPA filters (oil and fuel) and should have engine oil changed Tuesday.

Have to get that lube bucket out and see if it works!

Regards,

Chris

Good evening,

 Was able to remove and clean the sediment bowl on the TD-6. Not easy task. Changed the fuel filters. put the right track master pin back together. Fired it up and moved it around to get the new fluids in the transmission, final drives, and engine circulated.

Track adjuster will be next big items.

Regards,

 Chris

Old crawlers are cool. If I had one of those the yard would be all tore up.  :D

Folks,

 I need to get the TD6 out again for its 6 months spin! Here are some shots from this springs adventures.

I did get a new shifter boot, removed the one broken headlight, found the track master link on the left side, and installed a new return spring on the right steering lever. Oh yea ran it up on blocks and power washed it, and removed the six foot long 3 inch diameter tree that was jammed up by the right side of the engine. Also sat and starred at the track adjusters for a while and removed both the mud guards over the big coil springs.  Installed some grade 8 bolts in the two loos grousers. So I did do somethings!:)

Moved some slab edgings while back at the wood pile. Did more work in 15 minutes than I could do in a couple days! That greenish goo on the tracks is our wet spring clay/ dirt combo!
