The International TD-24 Has Arrived

The beast is here!

International TD-24

This International TD-24 has come all the way from Sauk Centre, MN, USA. It was bought unseen (except photos) and the condition is not quite as good as was described by the seller. However, with a little bit of ‘elbow-grease’ we will soon have it ship-shape.

TD-24 Restoration

The engine is now starting and running well. We are removing the heavy front-end, the bulldozer hydraulic pump and returning it to agricultural spec.

TD-24 Sprocket

 We have major concerns with one of the tracks and are trying to find some new pins, bushes and a sprocket – maybe we will have to have some made, as most International parts are now obsolete. Anybody with parts or information leading to the purchase of parts will be most gratefully received.

TD-24 Paint work

The tractor will eventually have to be shot-blasted and repainted. Not much trouble was taken by a previous owner to prepare and paint, as the picture shows.

 

Keep looking for updates as we progress with the restoration – should be a very nice tractor when finished.
