My new Red Power finally made it through customs. I was studying the TD24 on the back page. Was that 1091 engine a gas starter? Also there seems to be a crank hole in the grill, I would like to have seen someone crank start that baby at freezing temperatures.

The TD-24 was started on gas and switched to diesel, like the MD, etc. The front "crank hole" could be used to drive an auxilary hydraulic pump in some applications. I think you would have to be super strong like Superman to actually start one with a crank. I doubt if it has ever been done. I used to easily start a TD-6 by hand but that was 247.7 cubic inches vs 1090.6 cubic inches for the TD-24, over four times as many.

David - The TD-24 (at least the first generation) did indeed use the 1091 start-on-gas diesel.

I wondered about the usefulness of that crank hole in the radiator too. I vividly recall watching an operator crank start a UD-9 (335 diesel) powered ski lift in 0 degree weather as a kid. Looked pretty tough to me! Can't imagine hand-cranking an engine 3 times that big...

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Implements and Their Use - by Curtis Von Fange. Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he reached his early sixties ... [Read Article]
