Looked at a 310 Case dozer, six way blade inside frame mount.
Concerns: 1.Dozer frame to tractor side frame rails are loose, missing bolts, and replaced bolts. Can they ever be tightened, etc, to hold again?
2. Differential steering, when traveling straight ahead seemed to be noisy in the differential/pinion/ring gear area. Is that normal?
Tracks and ten rollers seemed good. A little blue smoke on startup but not when running. Head has been off and either reworked or replaced (different paint). Not welded up or beat up. New brake bands. Main clutch seems strong. Wants $5000.
Any red flags?
