Over 10 years ago, (September 10, 2010), Nelson Timken, our founder, had a dream of a friendly machinist site, where people could learn the hobby of machining. We want to wish everyone a healthy, happy New Year, full of joy and success. God bless you, and thank you for supporting The Hobby-Machinist.
Mac and Michael,
I have about 5 acres near Las Vegas.
And, yes it is a awful heavy backhoe for the ford 601, Sherman F-8 Power Digger, pins and bushing are wore out, hydraulic rams look pretty good, someone used and abused it. The front end loader is a Davis 101A, beat up as well. The tractor has a the small diesel engine with a broken crank. Does have power steering, and all hydraulics appear to be sound for rebuilding. The Ford 801 has the big diesel engine that runs poorly(smoking). Three projects in all, 801 rebuild engine and cosmetics, Backhoe and Front End Loader replace hoses pins and bushings and both need welding and reinforced in several places. Then put power steering, FEL & BH on 801.
So these will keep me busy for a while.
Is that a massy ferguson loader? There is a old farm near me with 2 or 3 of those rotting away. Lots of other stuff too but they wont sell any of it.By the way anyone happen to see on line fibreglass kits 8 or 9N Ford tractors that will fit any garden
tractor. Also comes with rear fenders. Then my 8N will have a baby. Sleek
My goodness, yes I would say the crank was broken. Was the block ruined?
