well i got it out of the machine yesterday and it wasn't as bad as i thought. one stud was missing and the other was broken off about half way. i was able to get the dutchman out pretty easy because there was about an inch of it sticking out of the box. the other problems were that someone had welded the nut and broken stud to the frame under the steering box and had welded the box to the frame from above with about an inch of weld. the above weld had broken many years ago,but t hat one underneath was a real &%^#!Angry. I don't think the machine shop will be necessary. all i need now is a couple of studs ,nuts,washers and i will back in businessClapClapClap

Well, I really should just part it out, but I can't quite bring myself to do that. It really is way too nice of a machine to knock in the head. Darrel

yea i understand. if you decide to part it out let me know. my AD4 is really in pretty good shape too. it still has the electric brakes and all. i am still entertaining selling it to help finance a hydraulic machine with power steering,but it will have to suffice until i make up my mind. anyway it should be a big improvement getting the steering box bolted down again. i really don't need a good grader just for my own work anyway and i kind of have the hankering for a new dragline . i don't think Allis Chalmers made draglines . did they?
