    I did a quick search for the part numbers on Machinery Trader, and found many places that show stock of the push rods, including American Crane.

    Best of luck,

    Jeremy

    Default Thank you

    Thank you rax200, Jeremy Williams and OM for the source contact, I have saved it for record on future needs. I checked with my local Cat source and that was a no go due to shipping. Managed to find a place in Texas where I hopefully will also be doing business on old parts and shipping wouldn't be an issue...only about 50 miles away and can do pick up.

    If anyone in the Texas area (and others) are interested...Frontier Tractor Parts is located in Coldsprings TX and carries lots of new and used parts and equipment for sale.

    Default Thank you

    Thanks jwwelty...I'm trying local and suggested sources first. Trying to cut shipping costs and more down time than I already have. Ready for the old girl to be up and running. Thanks for the suggestion for future reference.

    The d6-318 and d4 d315 use the same push rod

    Thank you gemdozer...still working with Frontier but they are pretty slow with responding on availability. If I don't hear back tomorrow (talking with them for 3 days now with no fulfilling answer) I will move on to the crane resource in Kansas City for shipping options. Need to get this show on the road. Thanks y'all.
