Can you post some photos of the IH TD-6 crawler? I always thought they were cool.
Neither are home yet, nor together. Only reason we bought them was the price, condition, cool factor, and the fact that one of them has the same Bucyrus Erie dozer equipment as the TD-9 we bought recently, also not home yet due to it being too heavy for us to haul ourselves at around 15,000 pounds. The pair of TD-6 dozers are currently apart so each "piece" can be hauled home in under 6000 pound loads lol. We already brought home the diesel engine off the first, the second engine is gasoline. Previous owner bought a replacement gas engine off a Farmall M to convert the better TD-6 to gas since it had been converted that way prior and that engine blew up 20 years ago. He took the diesel out of the second more worn TD-6 because he couldnt get it to run and was going to convert it to gas before getting the better one a month or two later... If that makes any sense. Dad and I believe the diesel engine is good and all the issues were fuel system, so we will use the diesel in the better TD-6 since it still has it's TD-6 serial tag, good tracks, and the Bucyrus Erie equipment. The other is worn pretty bad and its dozer equipment will be removed and the gas engine will go in it to get it operational. No harm since it has no serial tag anymore, and less value being worn bad enough that the track adjusters are overhanging off the side frames at least an inch or so (we may try to shorten the tracks by one link on that tractor). Ok, I will quit talking lol.
