Hello Bernie, look at the photo closely. The ICC trailer is not a crane, just a trailer.

The late D11000 engines were based on the D13000 engine, just had 5-1/4" liners and chambers to suit the smaller bore. Everything ese was stock D13000.

Caterpillar Tractor in town for repairs.


As near as I can tell, this Cat in Genessee is a 22 but I've never seen one with the air filter in front of the carburetor. Any body have any comments on this?
Thanks
Pete

Twenty Two comments. 2F series wide gauge. I had to grab a parts book and look at the air cleaners and it does not show a front mount air cleaner. Might be a field modification. The Best Thirty has had the tracks and the bottom radiator tank replaced at some time. It is a late single piece trani top.

Hello Deas, I don't think he launched high enough to reach space. I'm judging by the fact that one block access plate is upside down, he probably did the mechanic work on that tractor too!

I got launched a few times from my R2 when i started it that way--it was the easiest way as i had a blade mounted on it and couldn't reach over the blade with my arm--got pretty good at back flips!!
