Default Cat Ten

I brought another Cat Ten home. I have a few Tens but could not pass it up. The Cat is a nice older original machine with all the hard to find parts there. I am removing final drive now to fix one side that has stuck steering clutch. Here are a few pics

Jason : What a beauty you have there. I cant believe it has all the correct parts Carb, Air cleaner, Manifold, Crank, et al. Great find and shows there are still nice tractors to find hiding out there. Have fun on the final drive fix. I am just getting the 25 final drive back together. Pics soon Ed B

It is one piece. Spring steel is very hard to work with. My guess is Caterpillar had a mold for a press and they just stamped them out. I have only even seen one on all the Tens I have seen at shows

Given the basic form of the cover it was probably formed from
"spring steel in it's annealed state and then given a rudimentary hardening , Heating and cooling or quenching with the proper temperatures and quenching solutions ie: oils or salt solutions , I would love to learn more on this subject if anybody knows the proper techniques and such

Have Fun
Kevin

Took the final drive off last night and pulled the steering clutch pack today after work. Water had sat in the final drive exposing the steering clutches to moisture over the years causing rust so the disc's stuck to the plates. Here are some pics for the people on here that have not worked on a old Cat's steering clutch. I glass bead blast the plates and they look new. Then I prime and paint to help them in not sticking anymore
