Re: Dart 600c wheel loader

There were a few of these in the mines in Australia; would have been late 60's early 70's.

Re: Caterpillar D4D 88A series

Hi Richard,
That's the way we rigged the twin tilts on my D4d, and it worked fine. Run the hoses through the grille fairly high as you said, but I'd fix the T to the back of the blade not the C...

Re: One for D4C

Poor little bugger. That blade wouldn't disgrace a D6, I guess it was for snow or woodchips?:eek:

Re: Caterpillar D4D 88A series

Unless it's had a heart transplant, the 3304 in any 951 should be a pc...pretty sure they didn't go d.i. until a few years after the 951c ended.

Re: Caterpillar D4D 88A series

Hi, dd...yes the 59J is French built. The square plate type pump is the sleeve metering type that was fitted to later 3304's from about '77 onwards, the earlier ones used the same compact system as...

Re: Caterpillar D4D 88A series

Hi Diesel, 59J1173 should make it a 1972 build with 48V series 3304 according to the sometimes right book I have. The changeover from D330c to 3304 came in at 59J1103. :)

Re: D4D ebay

Hi Trax,the bigger fuel tank was standard on the late series D's, (stand to be corrected, but I think it's the same tank as a 951C) and some of the real late ones had wet back end too (owned one for...

Re: D6C - turbo or not?

Richard, beware of RitchieWiki as anyone can get on and edit it and there is a lot of misinformation on it....for instance they have the D6C as starting out with the D315 engine which is totally...

Re: D6C - turbo or not?

The first D6c's did have the turbo'd D333 @ 120h.p., the turbo was dropped for about 2-3 yrs when the D333c came in about 1968 (still 120h.p.), and they went back to the turbo when the D333c morphed...

Re: Various machines from my travels

Nice pics Richard, that open bowl scraper is a bit of a wild looking unit...it doesn't look like a knock off of any popular brand, do you know much about it?

Re: road train

Thanks for links Graham. The 2nd one of the Mack going up the Toowoomba Range is not that far away from me, it's a fairly steep pull, many have come undone on it....and more than a few on the 2 lanes...

Re: LNG pipeline pics 3

That last pic is an impressive setup..everything but the kitchen sink hanging off what looks to be an old D7E maybe.

Re: D8K's at work......

Hello Trax, you were right about the D7G, they are 200h.p.

They squeezed 270h.p. out of the 3306 in highway truck applications here, :eek: and from memory I think the 615 scraper and maybe the 235...

Re: Caterpillar Dozers and Scrapers

Operated quite a few 24's...never saw one with a hand throttle...doesn't mean somebody didn't fit one of course...only ever saw the 2 foot throttles.

Re: D5B - no engine: Deal or no deal

From the position of the blade ram mounts it looks like it was an LGP machine originally that has now had standard tracks fitted to it.
