Mine is a 48. The internal engine is that of an M's but has a fuel pump on it.
As you saw mine has a farmer engineered snow blade. It works fine for snow and the kids don't really know the difference between it and a D9 except for the color . I would like to have a real dozer blade for it but haven't stumbled on one close to me. My T6 came out of the orchards in CA and probably never had a blade on it. The control area is pretty tight and a fellow of my size and is a little cramped while operating. Still it is fun and a handy size. I got it out yesterday and smoothed the gravel up on my driveway.

Ya know, I saw that toolbar post before on Red Power and never took notice that there are differences. One pic has a straight pipe off the motor and one has a muffler! I guess someone at IHC must have done that the day after the Christmas party!

Being big, it is a little like a bear riding a tricycle but after awhile you get used to your knees in your ears. If you aren't used to the levers and brakes (almost need to be an octopus to run one) practice before doing any close work with it. I thought I was proficient enough when I took out the corner of my new shelter-house!

I finally got around to work on pulling steering clutches yesterday. I had been soaking the brake band pins so I could free them up. Hit them with the torch yesterday and got them loose. I pulled the left side clutch assembly today. I have a couple more things to do to get the right one out. I also think my flywheel clutch is froze too. Has anybody out there had a froze up flywheel clutch and know what for job it is to work on??? The steering clutches aren't to bad thus far! I have to read up on the dismantle of the steering clutches. I have had all the tools so far that I needed to tear it apart. BUT, I do not have a press yet. How big of press do I need to dismantle these clutches??? THANKS guys.

Dear Ed I think you can work on the clutch without spliting the tractor. You need a manual to tell for sure. One thing I remember is the bolts that hold mthe clutch pack have one offset hole so they will only go in one way. I did my T-6 10 or more years ago and can't quite remember all the facts. Ed B

Well I need 15 fiber discs and 11 steel discs. I hope I can find some good used ones. I also need to reline the brake shoes.

I'm not sure if it applies to only certain models, but the engine clutch WILL come out of some without motor removal. The key is a little grinder work on the bellhousing cover lip. I remember seeing pics of the grind work needed to get it out and it wasn't much. I just don't remember if it works on all or just a certain model.

I think the clutch will come out of a TD6 through the top w/o grinding...to get the flywheel out I think you have to grind a little. Don't take this as gospel, the guy I borrowed the manual from wanted it back...the nerve!!!
Good luck on the used disks, actually they're not that pricey from General Gear-I got lining & rivets from some other place for the TD6 brakes, wasn't a bad job to reline them...don't remember now, don't think it was General...been about 10 years...
