More pictures from December 2010 of the dozer being prepped to be moved into my garage. There are pictures of the intake "cap". Not sure if it is original as it has some red paint on it.

When I purchased the dozer the motor was stuck. I received the all to frequent "ran when parked" excuse when I bought it. I bought it knowing the motor would have to come apart. I removed the head and found minimal rust in the cylinders. The worst one being the one with the exhaust valve stuck open. Diesel fuel and daily wrenching of the flywheel pulley bolt broke it free. Removal of the cylinder head revealed below. Most of that is anti freeze.

After a honing of the cylinders the turn over smoothly.

I want to get the engine running to check the drive-train before I rebuild the engine. Need to know my complete exposure before I decide whether to invest the funds or sell it.
