I'm looking at a -G that has been setting since Jan. the fuel tank and hood and floor pan are missing, as is the cover for the left clutch housing. also, the boot on the gearshift. How much damage could have been done by leaving the shift linkage and clutch assembly exposed?
The tracks, trucks etc are really nice on this one. Even has the cast weight on the back, blade instead of a bucket. the owner has a short video of it being driven to where it is at now. no explanation as to why the pieces are missing. He swears it starts and runs and steers.
asking $1000. I am trying to work owners schedule and mine to go start and run it. I have already done a visual inspection, but neither of us had time that day to mess with it.
I am still confident of this;
I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Ps 27

could have some rust in the flywheel/clutch but wont affect the linkage.  for that price cant go wrong with good UC.  those other parts easy to replace

If the undercarriage is as good as the owner says,it is a OK deal. Pieces being off is one thing missing all together not so good if you are wanting to use it. 

I probably have all the pieces your missing. But the only way to get further apart is being if you are on a different continent.

Well worth the cost especially if track is good - that is worth it in itself even if turned once and bushings are still round on one side . 
 If case drain holes are open then no standing water in cases no problems there .
The transmission boot being missing could mean the rear double row bearing in transmission could be bad - a $200 cost . Big failure part on the machines is the outboard bearing on the first reduction gear , if it goes bad it breaks the rear housing case .

Ya, I was trying to hide my enthusiasm when I first looked at it, the undercarriage is the best I have seen on one of these. I'm still curious as to why it is partially dismantled. Anyway, I have all the pieces that are missing on a donar at home. All I need is get it running and drive it down to the road to load it and it is mine. If it doesn't start and drive I cant get it, cannot get a truck and trailer into where it is at. He was asking $2000, I offered $1000 and he took it. The weight on the back is the first one I have ever seen. It means the front has not taken the beating that many did from the weight of the bucket and load. I was excited about that. plus, for at least the last part of its life, it didn't even have a bucket, just the blade

Take something there that can drag it out

Or get it running

You already have one and you're asking us?  Go get it

currently, I have nothing that is in operating condition, thus my interest in another one, worse, I dont have truck and trailer capable of hauling 14k pounds. so far, best estimate for hauling this one after I get it to the road is $450. Sure wouldnt want to pay that for another one too
getting it running where it is is my best option

Ya, this one is about 15 miles from me. I have a local contractor that said he would transport it for me, but he is rather busy and coordinating with him my be problematic. Backup plan is local tow company with a rollback heavy enough to haul 14k said they would do it for $450. probably is the way I'll go

BTW Coke, I remember you saying something about modifying the final drives for better lubrication. I don't remember the details. was that something that can be done retro, or was you speaking about factory history?

It's modifying the lubrication on the throw out bearing on steering clutch , it uses a felt wick with oil fed from ring gear case . Remove line and use plug in case , then drill or notch area to bring a grease gun hose to access with a grease gun . 
 another area is the pilot bearing in the flywheel - that also uses a felt wick and feed from crankshaft drilling , plug crank and use a sealed and lubed bearing instead of open bearing in crank end 
 Other area is the outboard axle end bearing on truck frame - they suffer from lack of oil and using a spot on the housing to drill in for grease zerk can save that link belt bearing which is a hard one to find now .
 A 15 mile move seems rather expensive - check with some small contractors who might have a skid loader big enough to move the machine onto their trailer .. 
 I hauled my HD5G with 2 counterweights on it on a single axle roll back bed on a 2 ton Chev Viking 60 series truck , machine will weight about 12,500  - 
 I grossed out at 31,000 with it loaded - truck license was 27,000 - but never got stopped so must have been legal (ALMOST)
