Post Ed's loader
This thing is 4WD too, so I thought it would be appropriate here. We've been making progress getting it ready to use, I say we because a tractor mechanic has gone up with me twice now. Stopped the coolant leak, only a heater hose. Pressure washed the heck out of the transmission, but haven't exposed enough to get to the leak yet. Maybe taking off the fender will do it. The steering cylinders have leaked out enough now to empty the reservoir, luckily they have a secondary smaller retainer so you can add packing without removing the cylinder and taking it apart. The alternator adjuster pivot bolt was missing, the only bolt we had to replace it with was a leaf spring center pin. We cut off the head and used a nut on both ends. The next day I found the bolt laying in the road half way between the unload point and the driveway, on an evening walk. Doh!

Stopped the air leak at the emergency brake valve by replacing it. Builds air now, but the rear power cluster had an even bigger air leak. We replaced it with a good one that came with the loader. The power cluster is an air cylinder bolted to a master cylinder, there's one front and another rear. The front one isn't working, I have the bad one we removed being rebuilt. Haven't tried to bleed the brakes with the good rear power cluster, that's next trip. We know at least one wheel cylinder is leaking, front right. That means that wheel needs to come off, can't borrow a forklift until the fall. We plan on isolating that one for now. So if we get the brakes working and stop or slow the steering and transmission leaks, I should be able to start using it.

The exhaust manifold was missing three of the five bolts, and the other two were loose. Exhaust was coming out there too. The manifold gasket halves were six something each at the local Detroit Diesel dealer, and in stock.

Thats a serious piece of equipment!

So give us some details. What is it? Brand, year, motor, etc?

Mine is a 1977. Tires are 23.5 X 25, non turbo, best I can tell the non turbo is 160 HP, 407 ft lbs. it has the general purpose bucket, not the 4 in 1 clamshell, so the machine is 31,000 lbs. Optional Detroit Locker rear, I don't know if this machine has it or not. Of course I looked at IH loaders, but they were too expensive or too far. A regular size tractor wasn't gonna do what we want to do with this. In the model number the 72 is the series, the 41 is the size. I've seen from 72-31 to 72-81.

We want to use it to clear and level this area, except the oaks. This is actually the right half of what we want to clear. Maybe we should let people take a turn for a fee, ha ha ha.

I'll be up there Sunday to Tuesday. I'll be at a Poker Run Friday to Sunday, then move several miles over to our property. I'll be able to make some more progress with the parts I've gathered.

What's your plan with the property? Moving there? Opening a private campground?

A place we can camp with some improvements, until we can afford to build a cabin. My wife wants to move there eventually, no one else lives full time in that area. No power, garbage or snow plowing. It can get two to four feet of snow. Last winter it had less than two feet, most of the snowfall was higher. My truck can get in there even in the winter, I know I've driven that road during the winter a lot. We could also remove snow with the loader.

Post Re: Ed's loader
After posting on three different tractor/heavy equipment forums I finally found one with someone willing to help, he has a Case wheel loader from the same era. He has the same engine in a few different pieces of equipment, and thinks his book shows my transmission.

Edit: The other two forums were newer equipment.
