I've had several 7U's over the years (the series after yours) and complete with dozer and belly pan etc. they're right at 14K. So mschreiber's figure of 9K sounds right on the money. That's a mighty odd setup yours has, with the seat clear back in the next county. What's that all about?

My last 7U was a 1947. It had the Hyster towing winch so it had the older style fender mounted tank. I bought that one from the original owner with 1200 hours. I used that dozer for over 30 years. I hated to sell it but it was just sitting around rotting so what's the point in keeping it?

I made my living for many years with museum-era Cats. I have deep respect for the quality of not only the machines but the engineering that went into them. Yes, parts are dear, but if you rarely have to buy any, and (at least back in my days) if was relatively easy to find machines that you could pull parts from. Yes, I was pretty much the laughingstock of the excavating contractors, but every penny I made went to ME and none went to some BANK. And when business got slow, I didn't go broke like a lot of guys. I just stayed home and sold firewood and topsoil until things picked back up to my liking.
