    Got two 4-53s in machines. Both are quite fresh but you never know. A spare might be in order if the price is right.

    Nice machine! I had two Euclid S18s with a 6110b engine. They were tough machines. Euclid has a parts book and separate service manuals. I think any terex dealer will have them. Just tough to find parts for those old machines.

    Yeah, looked like your S7, same nose, had two air cleaners. We didn't have any cabs or tops though. I miss it. Euclid built some solid stuff. If you can keep em running you can move dirt cheap.

    Guy here had 2 of the old S-18s... one still had the old 6-110 with the centrifugal blower. And it was a runner. It was an ex county machine with very low hours.

    Any idea what happened to them or where they might be if they are still in one piece?

    Ours had those roots blowers. Saw one identical to ours coming up at a Ritchie bros auction in Phoenix AZ on April 13th. It has some kind of rops on it. I'd sure like to have it. Shipping quote was 11k to NC.

    We had a motor go out in one about 15 yrs ago. Finally found a guy in FL had one from a train or something. Got it up here 4000$ later and it turned the wrong way. He wouldn't take it back. Never found another. They are hard to find. We have some parts for them and a book. Let me know if you get one.

    well the stars aliened and got a good deal on a back hall so my s7 got home yesterday :). started her up and played with for a few trips to get a feel of what need's done. now the long list begins
    tans leak check steering cylinder leak check fuel tank leaks check no brakes check too many air leaks to build presser check. cut the side boards off check. sand blast and paint where done she got 3 different colors of green on her. sounds easy right lol . now i have to start the search for a nice push cat darn. i would say my dw6 would work but i think that's going to be a long term project. so i did find that name plate for the trans and confirmed it's a CT-3340 are they a 2 speed with a hi -low ? or a true 4 speed? i will have to start read my books i guess.

    not much to report. think i got the air leaks fixed so i should have brakes now had to do a little work on my lathe to make the truck air fitting work with 4 extra fittings very happy the way they trued out . fount out someone swiped my air horn :( . i thought i would Just "go thought the starter and clean it up a bit" as it was working but i had made new 2/0 Batter cables and thought why not. get her on to the bench and well 7 out of the 8 brushes are crack or broken so order some new ones with new bushings. i turned the Com down at the same time to get rid of the bad spot on it had to take about .030 off. i added a little more silver to the top of the contacts in the solenoid and we should be good as new for 18.97. from what i can tell it's the original stater and i was the first one to trim the com down.

    You guys know anyone in need of a 6-110 Roots Service manual? I Have a Euclid manual date June of 1962 that I could be talked out of pretty easy.

    Only ever got to play with a couple of those big boys back in the day. Company had a couple stationary PTO engine 110's they were still using to power a crusher. Actually the first 110 had a bearing go out in the centrifugal blower so that engine was tossed aside and the Roots blower nit installed to replace it!
