Saving a TD6?

Posted by hattrick on November 13, 2012 at 15:06:31 from (

So you guys are probably tired of seeing all of my goofy questions on the MD I have been working on for the better part of a year. I got it running on gas last Saturday and it runs good. I need to get the diesel side ready to go and see what happens when I cut it over. This MD tractor was truley brought back from the dead and it really makes you feel good.

Well that brings me to the next issue. In my hunt for parts for my MD I have come across a pretty nice TD6 Dozer that is complete and was a runner 7 or 8 years ago but it broke one of the final drives and has sat ever since. The guy will sell me the TD6 for scrap and maybe a little less I told him that the $200 a ton is what they pay for good steel at the yard but not in his yard. Anyway I was originally thinking of just grabbing the injector pump, head, starter, generator, radiator, grill, etc. and I think he would be open to that but I hate to see this thing die. At the same time I am not sure how I get attached to these things.

What is involved in replacing the final drive assuming I can find one? Also does anyone know if it is put in Nuetral if it will free wheel to load on a trailer?

Any advise on whether I should let this thing go or try and save it?
