International BTD20 Crawler Restoration – Week 8

March 23, 2010

Week 8 of the restoration and the BTD20 is starting to take shape. We think you’ll agree that we have done a very nice job with the gears and shafts!

BTD20 Gears and shafts

The gears and shafts are resting in their destination, but are still waiting the shimming-up process for pinion back-lash.

BTD20 Drive Sprocket Covers

Both drive sprocket covers have now been repaired after a struggle to remove them.

The restoration is coming together quickly now, and just in time for lovely spring weather! More to come next week!

Week 7 of the restoration, not the most exciting part of the restoration, but every small gear and bearing counts if we want the finished machine to be perfect!

Not much interest, but proof that we have been doing something this week!!

BTD20 Gears and Bearings

A pallet-full of very healthy gears and bearings to be re-installed when bottom shaft returns from having its gears press-fitted.

As I write there are two engineers in the workshop working on the BTD20  right now! So hopefully week 8 will be much more exciting!
