Pete they were so good Komatsu Copied them. Even the new D65PX-15 still has almost identical final drives, pivoting track frames and the planetary steering that IH developed. We were the first Co in the country to remove strip and rebuild a D65PX transmission. I fell out with a fitter at Komatsu Reman at Birtley when we visited the rebuild of our brand new transmission after it failed... and i diagnosed the problem.....Believe this or not they built a brand new unit and left the lubrication relief valve out ......
Out of four items i said i wouldn't reuse the Facility manager agreed on two parts.....the fitter was not happy, he didn't know my background and excellent training art Saville the dealer for the machines that Komatsu chose to copy.........did they...

Diggerhayne perhaps you were unlucky with your B series ,,from time to time it can happen with any engine.There was quite a number of "legs out of bed" with the early C series. Its a long time since I was involved with these machines but I think the engine was a 414 Trax will correct me if I'm wrong.

Tim as i've been out of the plant game for a good many years Idid'nt know that Komatsu were still copying. I rember that when they first arrived in this country that if you stood one of their machines next to a Cat 951 from a few yards away it difficult to tell which was which.
Just before I left Savilles some of the parts that were coming through for Payloader transmissions were in boxes marked KIMCO which were a joint venture between IH and Komatsu.

The DT 466 has been a tempremental engine at times but i think poor maintenance is somewhat to blame. Regular oil changes and good oil are allways the key to engine longevity.

On this side of the pond the IH466 is suppose to be a good motor and were used in medium sized trucks as well as dozers, loaders and such. Your problems probably have a lot to do with lack of proper maintenance. Are your plans to rebuild these old machines to work once again? I know a guy here who, well when the summers aren't so damned wet uses a D8H cable Cat and a Pullman scraper for building things like landfills, roads, and sewer lagoons and the old girl still purrs like a Cat. lol

D3b & d5b...........
The D3 has it's transmission out. In order to run up the engine we first removed the rusty flywheel and thoroughly cleaned it. Water and antifreeze added oil sump plug removed to relieve any water. Remove all the battery cabling and clean all the contacts and earthing points. Run the starter before fitting the flywheel.
The stater solenoid pulled in the pinion but would not motor. Powered motor only and no spin. Removed the starter and freed off the shaft in the nose bearing, tested starter and away she went. Refitted to machine and turned the engine a couple of times, may have an earth problem, bad light causes close of play.
More tomorrow if anyones interested.
