Stay away from the towel idea, it will suck it right into the engine. Use a piece of plywood or steel plate.

After bleeding the fuel lines and putting new brushes in the starter she started right up after about 10 seconds of cranking. Runs great! I filled up the one flat front tire and drove it out of the tall grass over closer to the house so I can continue to work it.. I've ordered seal kits for both front tilt cylinders as well as the stabilizer cylinders in the rear. Those are the major leaks. Once I get those fixed I can run it long enough to determine whether or not any of the other cylinders leak bad enough to warrant resealing.
This is the only proof that I have it's running.


This is the weak link on this machine. It's a big a$$ rotatory hydraulic cylinder that moves the hoe from side to side. It's pretty clapped out and has a ton of slop in it. My plan used to be to find a smaller back hoe attachment from a Case and retrofit it on to this machine. The backhoe attachment on this machine now has always seemed way too big for the tractor.



Now that I'm having some success with this machine I'm getting amped up to perhaps tackle this one too. It's a 1969 Allis Chalmers. It ran great when I parked it 14 years ago after it stopped turning left. I only paid 1500.00 for it and did a ton of work with it as worn out as it is.

If it won't turn left, go around the track backwards.
Oh yea. Congrats on getting that bad boy running.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Me either! Completely out of my comfort zone. Heck, the biggest wrench I own is 1.125" I'm hoping if I take the lid off what ever it is I need to to see, all it will need is an adjustment or a broken thingamawidget welded back together.
As for getting it started, geez the batteries alone are north of 200.00 and they won't fit in anything else I have.....I may have to improvise

Is that a #10 or #11 and does it have a Jimmy or an Allis-Chalmers motor?

I almost bought a TD dozer one time until I found out it wouldn't turn, either. They told me it had a blown hydraulic line I think, that was a few years back. I also didn't have a way to get it to the house, was a bit big for my car trailer.
I didn't think I could work on it myself, so I passed.
