BTD20 Crawler Restoration – Week 1

We are currently restoring a BTD20 Crawler. We have decided to post a week by week diary of the restoration for fellow restoration enthusiasts…

Week 1!

After carrying out an inspection of the machine we have list of repairs that need to be carried out.

BTD20 Rear Sprocket

Rear sprocket to be replaced if or when we can find another

Oil on BTD20 Floor

Oil on floor, means trouble from gearbox / steering clutch
housing. Fairly big job to replace, but seals readily available.

BDT20 Drawbar

Wear on drawbar guide means some extensive re-building.

BDT20 Floor removed

Floor cover removed ready for gearbox rebuild.

BDT20 Strip Down

Another image of strip-down in preperation for re-paint.

Near-side track adjuster removed for seal repairs and
broken studs in front idler yoke ready to be removed with the 
assistance of heat.
