I hope everyone had a nice weekend.
I was clearing my property in upstate NY this weekend using all of my chain saws.......
My 1978 Ford 335 diesel loader.........
And, (wait for it) my 1955 Allis Chamlers HD6G track loader!!!!!!!!!
All was going well until I cracked the hydraulic cam block on the hydraulic pump on the Ford 335 loader.
Okay, plan "B". I got "Alice" (the HD6G) fired up to start pushing down trees when I got her hung up on a rather steep grade (my tracks are a bit worn………..smooth actually.)
Now, Alice is chained to a very large tree until I can get back up with my excavator (that I have not purchased yet) to fish her off the cliff, and my Ford 335 is a very nice piece of lawn art!
I have taken the pump off the 335 and have it with me.
Now the questions:
1) Where can I obtain a new hydraulic pump for the 335 without spending insane money?
2) Or, where can I have my broken pump repaired/rebuilt?
I'm open to suggestions (besides you telling me not to go into the land clearing business….....no chance of that ever happening be rest assured!)
I am looking on the bright side though. I managed to keep all of my fingers and appendages throughout this entire ordeal/process of felling more than 150+ trees ranging from baseball size to basketball size trees. Also, I now have plenty of fire wood….…
As usual, any guidance would greatly be appreciated.
Side note to Larry: I have not forgotten to send you some photos of my 1948 Two Motor Fork Lift in action. I had the carburetor rebuilt since we last communicated but that was not the culprit (as it turns out.) I found a nice man in California that rebuilt my distributer (at a very reasonable cost) and now, she runs like a bat out of hell. I’ll email you some pictures soon so you can post them.
