Re: 6volt gen to 12 volt gen

IH stock was 6 volts, 8 volts was band aid fix someone came up with a long time ago that doesn't really work without some modifications.

Re: rust penetrants

It kind of seems to me that what most of the rest of the world thinks is a rusty part, any of us on here would be ecstatic to have the little amount of rust on our stuff. :lol: I have had some crawler come in that the deluxe seat has holes rusted in it, the track pad bolts did not even look like hex...

Re: rust penetrants

Yeah, WD40 would be the last product I would grab for a penetrant.

Re: rust penetrants

I wonder how they kept all the of rusted fasteners at the same torque value as far as being stuck. I have taken 16 track frame bolts out of a crawler, and everyone has a different amount of torque necessary to remove them.

Re: 350 B Track

DO NOT HEAT! They are hardened steel, you do not want to risk changing the properties of the steel by heating. Water is far and away the best answer. Sometimes you can use a power washer with a zero degree nozzle and shoot right at the joint of the pin and bushing and get some rust out.

Re: 350 snow cab compatibility

Straight cab should fit as well, only catch I can see is the early 350's side boxes were narrower than later straights, so don't know if that would affect it. I have a cab, crossbars, and extensions to make a wide gauge straight 350 snow crawler, always wanted to make one up. I got an original piece...

Re: MC 6 Way Blade

Keep in mind you are already way heavy on the front end of an MC, adding more stuff just exacerbates that problem. The bottom forward roller will only tolerate this stress for a certain amount of time before wearing out, of failure. Rollers aren't cheap, and can be hard to find.

Re: Roller grease and guns

If the gun end leaks, it is bad. Some have rubber seals, some have a tapered sharp washer that seals them. Zerks and ends are readily available, I should have both in stock.

Re: 4oc Transmission Case

Break the heads off the rivets, and sometimes you can drive them all the way through to the inside.

Re: Roller grease and guns

High/low pressure selectable pistol grip guns are available. I was going to order some, may still do that. In the area of $50 if I remember correctly.

I've done it, too long ago to remember anything specific, but it is a pain.

Re: 4oc Transmission Case

Bottoming tap should cut to the bottom of the hole, less than 1/8" as far as loss of depth. You are already as deep as you probably better go. 1/2" long bolt is highly adequate.
Welding washer and nut works great, done it for many years.
