I looked at this today. CAT 30 serial # S6445. Unique use of a Ford TT truck differential to run the winch drum. How about the V6 GMC
engine/transmission transplant.
Widow has been offered nine cents a pound for scrap, and they will pick it up.

LOOK AT IT!
Its got a Walmart "EverStart" battery and a can of Ether still on it.
Probably would start right up as it ran when parked! :lol:
Seems as though someone is always asking for Idler bearings and undercarriage parts.
Plus those gears in the Trans/Final that get asked for once in a while!
It seems a shame to take a person's ingenuity and at least not document it closer if it indeed does go to the Scrap Yard.

This is a MUSEUM piece unknown hours of creativity and engineering went into this from one end to the other. Tom this cant be too far from Chad's place maybe you and Glenn could partner on this later chuck

I second what Jeff says - at least save the Thirty parts - they don't make them anymore...

The widow said her husband was rebuilding the carb when he became to ill to finish it. As drujinin says, had a new battery, ether ready, and the fuel line is still in the plastic gas can alongside.



Two more dozers she is getting rid of.
