  • If I were so equipped with tools and machines, then at least I would know that even the new, fixed guide roller on the chain must rotate freely and not the one that should freeze when driving. Then, with the welding torch, the hexagon bolts do not heat the heads, but the threads of the bolts and the flange that are stuck in the turbocharger flange. It is clear that you then tear off the screw heads and the rest of the screw gets stuck in the flange. I would have installed the seal directly on the flange the first time, that would have saved the second work. If I worked like that, my boss would have fired me long ago !!

  • A trick a friend with a lot of experance showed me. Heat the bolt without melting it. Walk away and let it cool. It expanded than shrank and may come out with ease. This worked so many times.

  • the roller on top of tracked vehicles are mostly used to help prevent de tracking and clearing of build up of mud on track.

  • Maybe a pro can answer this, but he seems to bounce around and lost traction a lot in the different machines while he's digging. Is that just because it's a difficult job or the machines are old, or is it just that someone with more experience has better control over the machine and doesn't jump it around?

  • Had the same problem with starter on a tractor. Turned out it was a bad + Contact, I soldered it and its good now. Also, you need some Veidec rust-shock oil :D also about the roller I think you hammered it in 1 time too many, its grinding against the mount.

  • Screwing the next guy eh? Not even attempting to remove the 3rd bolt and maybe the misery of a 3rd bolt extraction. Going straight with the grinder wrench.

  • The old Cat has a new lease on life... One click of the key start... Beauty... Might want to consider taking a piece of rubber and super glue it over the top of the starter and over the exposed wires... Helps some in keeping water out [dripping directly on it] and the connectors from rusting... Meaning less starter replacement...

  • Usually when extracting bolts out of a housing. Yours being a turbo housing in this case. You always want to heat around were the female threads are. By heating the bolt, your expanding it inside of the hole and will break everything. Use a brazing tip and concentrate the heat around the base. You'll have much better luck! Hope this Helps

  • Cam is simply relentless. He doesn't ever go halfass on anything... He started with three things to do, kept finding a bit more here and there. Would not let it go... For a 60s CAT Crawler, he brought it back to basic perfection. That's how we need to live our lives. Cutting corner leads to unnecessary crashes.
