Long day in a bad position but i was able to lay the tooth faces back and chamfer all the boogered and smeared metal blocking the starter gear from meshing.






I also polished the starter gear ramps into a radius to help the gear rotate into position smoothly when plunging into the ring gear.  Back up and running.






Thanks again for the straps @rastis

Reminds me a bit of my activities a couple of days ago...we were camping out west, staying in a nice campground in Spearfish, SD. I had some front brake pads start wearing into the rotor on my Dodge, so I quick changed the side that was bad (the campsite rules forbade washing of RVs etc, so I figured I better boogie before someone e told me to stop😁). Got it apart and it had a cracked piston, so I had to get a caliper and switch that out. Then, I had a vibration that appeared about 65mph that was driving me nuts, so I pulled the front driveshaft off, it had a slightly loose U-joint (picture me carrying my driveshaft and throwing it in the back of my truck, as my neighbors looked on😁) Then I got to move on to the slide out on the camper, something was kicking a breaker and pulling tons of juice. We finally narrowed it to the slideout circuit. I didn't have time to trace down what I figure is a direct short somewhere in the wiring. First we tried the manual crank, we put our 9 year old boy on it and that broke too🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️ So I cut the wires on the gearmotor, and hooked up jumper cables so we could run the slide that way. There are days...

Might I add that the 3rd generation on Dodge 4x4's have a horrible design on that front axle- no locking hubs or anything, they just spin the whole front driveline like an old 4x4 that you left the hubs locked in. It's pretty common for them to disintegrate a u-joint which then destroys the front case of the transfer case (it happened to me). I came from a 2nd gen Dodge, they had a 2 piece drive axle that unlocked, I assumed these were the same. I felt the vibration, and got down and looked my rear shaft over several times, it never occurred to me it was the front shaft. There is a lock out retrofit, but you have to change the entire hub assembly, about $2000.

Oh ive sung the dodge blues many a time.  Can you put balljoint ford outers on those to delete the unit bearing and gain freespin hubs?


I let my front end fall apart then did it all at once.  Ford knuckles, new big twin piston calipers, rotors, bearings, wheel joints, new xrf balljoints and deleted that terrible track bar balljoint by cutting and sleeving the bar and welding frame mounts for a regular tube bushing.  I was putting trackbars in every year.  


 If 3rd gen has a tie rod end style joint on the driver side, have the wife rock the wheel and watch it.  Thats the dodge deathwobble most wanted suspect right there.  On OBS fords its the other end of the trackbar.

Well, 2 sad events to post.  International went to a beefier inner spindle shank with otherwise the same forge casting,  and from a 205 to 207 series bearing on the inside wheel bearing so the new bearing race wont go in my hub.  I brought an outer bearing to check the spindle at junkyards because the inner exploded.  

Im waiting to hear back from timken if there is a bearing that will allow me to avoid boring my hub or turning my spindle down.. Neither of which i want to do.    The cost of owning obsolete stuff.


Yesterday i had henry start the forktruck.  Then i ran it and it sounded terrible.. I thought man its gotta be out of oil and turned the key off.  It stayed running because i hadnt killed the fuel shutoff..and the sound went away...  Because boy had the key stuck in the crank position and the bendix was running into the spinning flywheel.  It started last night but not today.  And wouldnt ya know it the hardened bendix gear ate the soft flywheel.  Sure would be nicer to replace a bendix.  



"Oh youre lucky to have all that equipment" is one of those phrases that makes me want to choke someone.
Hey Mike, just call elmer, he will have them fixed in no time! :D

I think this qualifies me for legal entry into this thread.  

Hows that for a hole in a radiator?  After hauling 6 or 7 loads of logs yesterday....I decided after the last one that I was going to change the right rear caliper....the old 87 international has hydraulic brakes.  So after unloading it with the prentice, I circled the mill pulled to the front yard to turn around and pull up to my bay that I work out of...but when I braked to back up....there was none.  So I smacked the Jin pole I use with the back hoe...very very fortunate that I was home an where the two inch rod entered it missed the fan and other engine parts.  I found a hood, grill and radiator for $750.00.  Went and picked it up and got two nice tires and rims for another $250.00.  It wont leave the yard again until it has 4 new calipers on it.  I already replaced one brake line and will give the others a hard look.  Close call...my truck and trailer were just below that Jin pole.  Tim

If you had to poke a 2 inch rod through the radiator, that was the perfect place.  Tim

Thanks everyone for posting, lightens the day with shared painful experiences.  No real pictures, didn't break anything, just putting back all the little stuff the mechanics left behind.  So while I've been wrenching it wasn't, yet, carnage.  Now I did have my son back over a 462 this summer, that would have qualified I guess.  All my fault.

I think it will buff out . Probably gonna take about 270 Benjamins to buff it to shiny new.

Well I had a seal leak in the front diff of my C3 Tree Farmer so today I figured I'd check it out. Good thing I did as it was more than a leak... a couple of bearing failures!

Been a summer of lots of minor inconveniences. 
Hay rake frame broke in two.





Head gasket in the skid steer


Somebody's old weld in the chain case of the skid steer cracked.




Broke another axle in the GMC 2.5 ton axle. So its gutted and running as an empty housing now.




Destroyed slip clutch in the batwing mower.


Thats just the junk I remember and have some pictures of. Lol

I have been looking at those big gehls, how do you like it and how many hours you put on? Has it been reliable?  Perkapillar or cummins? Parts off the shelf or proprietary? 


Im looking to replace my 742 and want a bigger diesel machine with a longer wheelbase.  Have run LS170 but i dont love the slop that comes in linkage booms.  But the low COG on those gehls and side view looks really good. Seems like plenty of room for big grousers. And the removable axle housings is nice too.
