International TD9 Rescue

We were tempted to purchase this IH TD9 to save it from the scrap-man. We thought it was cheap at the time but there were a lot of parts missing with badly corroded and damaged tin-work. Here is the progress so far.


Not much left of the fenders!

Not much remains of the back-end, and the steering clutch department was almost empty!

This bonnet was typical of the condition of the body-work.

As we progressed through the transmission it was apparent quite a lot of damage was present.

The one remaining steering clutch was badly corroded and it took ages to dismantle, we managed to find new friction discs in the USA.

The brake drum and steel clutch discs have cleaned up quite well with blast cleaning.

 All that remains of the side panels – it was difficult to get an accurate template to manufacture new.

First fix. We assembled the new panels and diesel tank to be sure that they all mated together properly. Was then disassembled in readiness for painting.

    Thanks for that fatamus. The TD9 was certainly a project and a half! but we got there in the end.

    Regards, John.
