D2 going in the shop

What kind of shop is that, you're outta ale! Actually quite nice for the winter projects to stay out of the wife's way, with her knowing where you are at! My wife gladly gives the check to my parts house because she says it is way cheaper than a bar tab, and she doesn't have to worry with me driving under the influence (She claims it only takes one, but who has just one?)
I still am at 1-1/8 plywood on dirt with the Cat on top of ties with the ply under with carport tent over it all. Darn County won't let me build a shop without having a house first. Reverse logic if you ask me because how can you build a house without a shop to store material in so it doesn't get stolen between weekends?

Whew!, you had me scared for a minute with the empty box in the first pic. Was wondering how you coaxed a buddy to help move the heavy stuff!

I've been collecting parts and practicing on other machines but I think it's time to get my D2 put back together. I took the idlers springs and bottom rollers off my old frames. I think someone let that bad roller go just a little to long

We had a big storm come through so I got a little bonus shop time and took apart my "good " track frames. Looks like another roller that went a little to long. Surprising that the first roller had been replaced by a double flange roller, not sure if that had anything to do with the failure. So it looks like some repair and a few holes to weld up. Overall the frames look good.

Got time to cut the bottom out of the fuel tank. I think it was time well spent. I'm going to try and fix some of the dents while I have access to the inside of the tank.




Check out the drain hole, I dont think it's drained anything for awhile

That's a D2 main fuel tank right? I haven't seen one with a vent or whatever that is on the front surface

Yes D2 seat tank. It's not a vent, it's the fuel outlet with a tube that goes up a couple of inches the curves back down to about 3/4 inches off the bottom. The theory is that you just replace fuel with fuel instead of pouring everything out the bottom. Seeing what was in the bottom of mine I feel like it works to some extent

Interesting - I'm guessing that's an aftermarket addition, or was it an early model approach that was discontinued? My tank on 3J4086 and on 5U13753 both have the vent and outlet and drain on the bottom, and the outlet has a one inch riser internally to avoid the sediment

mine is 1941and after cutting the tank apart it appears to be from the factory.
