    Default Pv587

    I am thinking of selling my Cat15. This is in Helena, MT , it ran about ten years ago but I can't get it to start as of now. It turns over fine and even fires. It is still cold here, about tenF last few nights. I may wait a month or so and give it another try. It has a six foot blade attached with a hydraulic ram mounted behind the seat. It looks original but my knowledge is CAT didn't mount blades. One story I saw said they were shipped across town from the factory to a company that put their blades on before shipping to the customer.
    I think it's all there as far as a restoration project. The only damage is the radiator was frozen at some point in the past and will not hold fluid. At this time just looking for any interest or feedback. Thanks, JIm

    nice to know there's another member in this neck of the woods!
    My Twenty-Eight is probably so different that I couldn't be of much help other than the usual gas motor suggestions.
    Probably the reason mine starts easily is that the previous owner purportedly put $700 into rebuilding the odd looking carb.

    Hey, it is nice to know. I actually just got a kit and rebuilt the carb. I do have a fuel leak in the lines to fix next, other than that it was just to cold for an old man to hand crank it enough. I've got another project going and as soon as its done I'll give it another go. A friend even mentioned pull starting it, seems like a plausable idea. Let you know soon.

    Good luck on kick starting the ol' gal. The Ol' lady even has to give me a shove once and awhile to get me started.
