    Older International Dozer

    Here are some pics of a dozer we found at a mine were doing some work at located at the Arizona New Mexico border. Drive sprockets hardly look warn? The bench seat inside the cab was big enough for six people and a dog to sit on. Why did they put such large seats in these things? I talked to the operator and he said there is only about three gallons of water on the pistons. Saving fuel I guess?

    giant bench seat

    My guess for the giant seat is they were there so the operator wouldn't have to stand up too see. or to give the operator left or right handed the ability to see whichever side they were on. since ergonomics is a fairly new field that kind of rules out the second one.

    To me, the main track undercarriage looks fairly sound according to the photos. If the drive sprocket segment bolts happen to come out easy (ha-ha), then I assume it would be ok?? I love the old International machines, they had their faults, but no machine is perfect. It looks a neat looking 25C!!!

    Judging by the rust on most parts I dont think it does. Was it out of fuel
    Is that a Kelly on the rear ? or were they only on C@ts?

    I think Kelly rippers fitted anything. We had one on a Fiat Allis HD 41B many years ago. (late 70s) The tyne was 18ft long and tricky to change when they broke in half. Park on the edge of a bank with ripper flat, then pull the repaired tyne up and through with the crane. Move machine forward with crane holding the tyne until the tyne met the dirt to hold it & fit the pin. Altogether a PIA. Have also seen Kelly's on D8H & D7G..... C ya.........Ray

    As for the ih motor, check with f.p. smith out in california. I used to deal with a bruce, not sure if he still works there, but I'd see what he knows first.

    TD-25's gave the company I worked for a good run.
    We had 25B's with Cat 463's behind them and a fairly late TD25C as a push tractor.
    It had an Ateco ripper on the back.
    CRC-Kelly made rippers to fit ALL track type tractors, not just Cat.

    BigDuke, this is The IH forum, register and ask about the engine there. Hope this helps,

    I'll bet they'd like to see the dozer pics there too, JoeDirt.
