    Either a TD18 or TD18A. The 1955 TD18-1 and TD18-2 had the air cleaner moved under the hood.

    The grousers have had some flatbar welded to them. If the pads needed to be built up, then the pins and bushings are probably worn out. For a farm cat that is just going to do some limited work, it might be okay.

    No offense but that machine belongs in a museum.

    Old iron habit , Its possible they made 6 cyl versions. The 14 and 18 have the same pistons and rods I believe. The are the gas start switch over to diesel engines. Probably fine for a farm dozer looks taken care of for a machine pushing 70.

    The swivel seat on my first series 931 does not have enough room to set on the seat and swivel. You stand up and lift the seat about 4 inches to swivel and it stays at the higher setting. I spin it and then spin me around the canopy and back into the seat is what I found works the best. Don't think it has any advantage over your flip seat if yours raises up as it flips. Mine could use more legroom in the hoe position but I have a 35" inseam and size14 shoes.

    Here's the best I could find of the 931B backhoe seat. The bottom seat cushion is flat and stays the same height, just the seat back flips to either side. Because my machine came from the factory with the backhoe there are extra hand holds on the ROPS that I use to crawl over the hyd. and fuel tanks. Kind of a pain but way better than a JD that uses a separate flip down seat. There was a Cat competitive bulletin TECB2050 entitled "The improved D3B/931B fixed pivot and sideshift backhoes vs John Deere 450C and 9300 backhoe." I keep thinking about making some kind of quick attach levers to operate the brake pedals from the backhoe position.
