Lou, didn't you do a pictorial of all the work you did on that thing? I seem to remember you buying a lot of steel and doing a lot of cutting and welding.

As far as this machine goes, I see nothing wring in warning a guy that crawlers are very often money pits. I'll never get my investment back out of my JD 1010. I've got about $4K tied up in a machine that might bring $3500.00 and the tracks are still shot and the hoses still need replacing. I think all people are doing is saying- be careful.

Bret"Kept a running photo (disk)layout for our benefit. Now What steel that you think We bought to make needed repairs? The only steel we bought was for the Tow bar, and most of that we had out back in the shed, bought to repair the I.H.706.Small pieces we had underneath the work bench. I seen where the gentleman bought the unit and when he looked at it, wasn't near as bad (need for his usage) and will be brought back again. GOOD FOR HIM.I'M still waiting for the fellow to come look at our receipts. Lots of dis=believers on here.If he shows up, that would make him a nosy nib I will State again for the record, hadn't it been for Jde Marris, we would have been up the creek for valued information. Jde has the expert advice plus he backs up with information he supplies. on questions he answers. Any way folks, I'm happy for the fellow who ignored the RUN DON'T WALK AWAY SYNDROME.MHO.inclosed LOU.

Lou, as I recall you bought new pads and cut them down to fit, you also had to weld up a lot of stuff, didn't you have to do a lot of work to your rails, like rebuild them with weld? I'll see if I can find the posts. I know I thought it was very interesting.

Bret" You are correct about the pads, and loader arm welding plus the welding up of rail nuts that hold em together.Yep every pad was cut and welded the holes closed, then we templated the old shoe and traced the pattern to te new shoe,drilled new holes feathered out for the bolts so the bolts could rest flat against the shoe.Otherwise no additional welding was requires. Lots of hours in dis-assembling, cleaning washing and painting and re- adssembling.All this information (pix)and all is on the Archives. What got to me was the stupidity of Dave asking what we had in cost to repair . He states that if I disclosed what we paid out in parts that would help someone else decide whether to undertake such a venture,and see if it would be worth their while. He doesn't get the fact that ALL Equiptment has different problems and no two are identical in nature, PLUS THe fact It's none of his business what we spent.The archives are available to see what we done to rebuild the O.C.46 which by the way was WELLORTH THE TIME SPENT AS WELL AS THE FUNDS > LOU.
