Another one saved from the scrapyard
« on: June 03, 2018, 01:45:46 PM »
It's been sitting for ~15 years since the previous owner passed. A new starter, set of points and a couple belts and she runs and drives (kinda).

Any guesses on vintage and model? I'm think late 60's C5 with a later blade.

Good question. It's set up like a crane and it pivots side to side on a truck hub. Best I can figure is they had winch issues and used this to get the butts in the air to hook them. They even have it hooked into the hydraulics with a valve beside the seat. It's likely to get torched off.

That's a great find! I would say it started life as a C5 and there seems to be some modifications since then :D, I don't think it came with the hour meter steering!

Any ideas what the axles are? Only one has the timberjack planetary cover. Looks like at least one needs a wheel seal.

They are Rockwell axles, same as in the Timberjack 217,225,230's. I'm not sure of the actual number of it but I'm sure that someone on here knows it and will say. ;)

Thanks, they may be the same as the Rockwell axles in the other c4i had but I thought I remembered that there were weaker and stronger versions.

As a rule if the hub has eight wheel nuts that is the weakest ones, the hubs with twelve nuts are beefier.

Going off the look of the axles, Rockwell PR75 will get you close, except maybe the actual case and shafts which might be different length.
