    Confused

    That's a clean looking machine!
    Wonder what other problems it has?

    It looks nice from what I can see, I might be in the area in the next few weeks, would be interesting to take a first hand look. What engine would this have and what would a suitable replacement would cost

    Default 943 Cat Hydrostatic Trans.

    Hi Team,
    sounds like a leg out of bed job has been done to the engine.

    Hydostatic trans. system of HPCU (Hydraulic Power Control Unit) and Track Motors can be a nightmare of mega $$$$$$ to fix if it has not been looked after with regular services etc.
    The trans. system itself was brilliant but when something goes wrong or dirt etc enters they get mega expensive to repair.
    Did several of all sized machines--they all use the same trans core even up to the 973 so a 943 unit is low stressed-- at The Dealers.
    Not unknown for the poor little 3204 to throw a rod as they spin fairly fast with a big heavy flywheel that can shear the flywheel bolts if an escaping rod gets jammed and the crank stops suddenly.
    Cheers,
    Eddie B.
