Still trying to figure out what this is. I couldint find any model numbers other than what was on the distributor that was on what looks like another engine on the back. I did do some research. I think they call this a "pony" starter motor. On the back there was some words but they are all gone it looks like. Took a bunch of pictures, Take a look at the link below and see what you think.

I would say that's a Cat No6 loader,forerunner of the 977,its 50+ years old,it would be a collectors item,they were only in production for a couple of years,go to the Antique Caterpillar Machinery Owners Club at www.acmoc.org and go to the BB there,someone will want to revive it,please don't consider scrapping it till you give the collectors a chance.

Dont worry, Its not mine anyway. I talked to the brokers, the land is way out of my finacial reach anyway. if it was mine id try to start it then just sell it on ebay if it didnt work out. Id prefer somthing with a starter motor. Thanks for everyones comments, looks like its almost rare.

if rain has got in the exaust manifold from sitting without a muffler expect the engine to be froze up and $5,000 to replace the rusted parts. rust might be a problem with the lift cylinders also but these old CAT's weren't engineered for planned obselecense,

you bet. I walked under the bucket under this thing to take some pics. If it would have fell down, no one would have known for awhile. But i figured if it would have been up there that long i dont think it would have fell now. I think its pretty cool but i dont know if i want to go through the trouble of trying to LEARN how to get it moving and it getting away with all that power. Its on the side of a hill.Id have to hire someone to move it if i bought it cuz i dont think my dually could touch it. I wonder if these things tip over with somone on them. That is a muffler but i think its for the starting engine. The diesel dosent have a muffler at all! Guess its not worth messing with?

It is the loader version of the D-6 Caterpillar. It should have a 525 cu in six cylinder 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 diesel engine with a two cylinder 3 1/8 x 3 1/2 gas starting engine. It should weigh around 20,000 pounds. Harold H

Today's Featured Article - Good As New - by Bill Goodwin. In the summer of 1995, my father, Russ Goodwin, and I acquired the 1945 Farmall B that my grandfather used as an overseer on a farm in Waynesboro, Georgia. After my grandfatherís death in 1955, J.P. Rollins, son of the landowner, used the tractor. In the winter 1985, while in his possession the engine block cracked and was unrepairable. He had told my father ... [Read Article]
