This is the broken cover on the rear worm drive in 2009.

Jeff is that a worm drive or a Timken double reduction thru-drive tandem axle?

Tony, you are correct, I mis-spoke. The rears are double reduction Timken 75350PAx2 front and 75351PAx7 rear with 10:22 to 1 ratio, according to the manual. 

Up North Jeff, I was hoping not to get that far into it but you may very well be right. I was planning to do the valves and seats anyway, a friend has the correct seat grinder he just used on an HXD. The pan has to come off to clean out the sludge so it's not really that much extra work to pull the pistons out. Hopefully it will not take long to free it up.

Jeff, you've created a monster. I am following closely your work on the truck as many others are. With the restoration work, the WAI every day, your job and your family I don't see how you do it. Thanks for everything you do.

Not only is the snowball picking up speed but I think I am stuck inside of it ! Bill, I don't know where I find the time either. Today was a good example as I had some other stuff to do and didn't get to the C2 until this afternoon. Today I dealt with the mangled up rear fenders and makeshift wooden deck the house mover added. The fenders are partly original with a home made piece added between the front and rear sections. In their current condition they are pretty ugly looking. So off they came, and the rotten deck as well. Not only will this give me access to remove the chunk out of the rear rear, but it cleaned up the back of the truck as well. It looks much better, but now you can really see the ugly old tires ! The original fenders will go back on someday, after I make them pretty again.


Here you can see the fenders and the deck. Not very good looking, are they.

The new look is much cleaner.

I am trying to get the pony engine on my Caterpillar D8 14A unstuck. I put an inch or so of Rust Blast in the cylinders last Friday. I tried using a wood block and large hammer on them Saturday but nothing moved. I refilled the cylinders and inch deep and will leave them sit over the holiday. My guess is to eventually, the Rust Blast will work its way down the cylinder walls and bingo, it will be free????

Red and Yellow

The biggest problem with beating on the pistons with a wooden block in this engine is they are 180* out of phase. When you try to beat one down you are trying to turn the crank and moving the other one up. If one is at or near top dead center nothing is going to move. If the 14A series has a starter motor remove it and the gear box and you'll have access to the flywheel ring gear. With a bar try to work that back forth to free the pistons. Or take the hand crank handle mounting bracket off and work that shaft back and forth with a pipe wrench.
