International TD24 Progress

April 19, 2012

The International TD24 is making slow progress, but new final drive parts have been discovered in America. We are now starting to see the end of our desperate search for otherwise obsolete components. Track chains have been located in Italy but we are still awaiting prices – it may well be that we shall fit new pins and bushes to the existing track chains, located in Canada. The new front is to be manufactured in this country and will be ready in a week or two. All-in-all it has been a challenging project and several budgets have been fixed but all have been ‘blown to smithereens’! As it is such a rare tractor we are hoping that it will be all worthwhile. I doubt the tractor will be sufficiently finished for painting this year, but we do hope to have it operational for the Gamston ‘working weekend’ in August (bank hols).

The International TD-24 Has Arrived

February 23, 2012

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.

The International TD14a Has Arrived!

September 29, 2010

Above is a International TD14a arriving from Aurora, Oregon, USA.  (mentioned a few weeks ago on our blog)  The tractor was purchased on 13th July, was delivered to the port of Tacoma on 4th August and sailed on 11th August.  The ship delivered cargo to Bremerhaven and Antwerp before dropping off at Southampton with the TD14a on 19th September.

Here it is being unloaded at 7.30 in the evening of 22nd September in our yard.  The tractor was in much better condition than expected, photographs only showed us the cosmetic condition, but we were very happy to receive a machine in ‘nearly-new’ mechanical condition – a first for us!

The above pictures were taken the next day after we had washed all the dust and salt stains off.  Hopefully the tractor will be seen at ploughing matches just after Christmas.

We are indebted to Paul Singer Jnr. Aurora, for his honest description and the care and attention to packing spare parts, muffler and various manuals.  Paul and his family owned this tractor from nearly new.  Upon acquisition, from his father, he decided to re-track it and make it fit for work.  Subsequently he decided to buy a 4 wheel-drive tractor and never used the TD14a for farming again.  When he retired he decided to undertake a full restoration and the tractor was seen at many farm shows in the surrounding area.  In November 2004 it was featured on the front cover of Red Power Magazine.

Volvo Hook Loaders

August 12, 2010

We want to expose our involvement with Volvo hook loaders to the rest of the world. Initially we are eager to buy (UK) any model of Volvo fitted with Boughton hook systems, other types may be of interest.

Volvo 860

Above is a Volvo 860 for export and is the type and quality we are looking for together with Volvo A25c (pictured below) which we sold to Sweden recently.

Away to Switzerland in a ‘curtain-sider’ – yet again!

June 1, 2010

There will be some pictures of the BTD20 later this week… For now we have an image of the Cat D6N XL being loaded onto a ‘curtain-sider’ bound for Switzerland – yet again!  Please note, it only just fits in!

This and the A25c are all to the same valued customer.
