Default TD 15C, IH & Dresser.

We have two TD 15C tractors in the yard.
Last week i decided as we were having a biG clear up to try and get them fired up. The oldest 1976 machine turned over eventually and burst into life.
The 1986 Dresser Model with only 6000hrs on the clock was siezed solid.

Sorry to hear about the seized up the engine, I take it you don't do a lot of dozer work if they've been sitting that long?

The oldest dozer I acquired from J Clubb, a company from Dartford in Kent. The undercarriage is not too good but she runs and drives pretty well.
Clubbs were going to scrap her, i did have to hand over some cash.
The newer Dresser was in good running order having only clocked up 6000 odd hrs. She came to us along with a coal blade which had been constructed on to the original semi U blade. I cut all the extra off and low and behold fresh new paint, well not so new but untouched on two thirds of the mould board was unused.
We had a problem with reverse clutch pack and so took out the transmission.
IH spares availability in this country is pretty bad and so it got left. Now i have the clearing up the yard bug and the dresser engine is running like a new engine, sound new anyway..... i have decided to see if i can get the trans parts.
Bert and JD we also have five Caterpillar dozers and four Komatsus'.

Trax

Nice to see it running, if you get the bits for the transmission is it capable of turning in a days work or is it going to be a haul road tidier

Talking of blades have you got/reached any conclusion on the komatsu 65
how long has it been going on. Daz
