Ok, thanks anyway.

I'd really like to find plans or something for a Cat engine.

Good luck with that search Ray,
I tried for a long time to come up with plans but had no luck at all.
Luckily I had access to original equipment that I was able to measure and
photograph, that was a great help.

Might check with these guys, when I was in contact with them back in '09
all they had were photos and specs no drawings.  Maybe they now have some.

For photos get a hold of one of the Iconografix (photo archive series)  books
"Caterpillar Sixty photo archive" lots of good pictures.

If your ever in Sacramento go over to Woodland to the Heidrick Ag Museum
they have all kinds of crawlers and other equipment and aren't adverse to
letting you crawl all over a piece and measure and photograph (ask first of course)

Do you mean just the engine or the entire tractor??

If just the engine, which engine?  What ere?  Gas or diesel?
What size engine?

Just curious

Just the engine. Not too particular about whether it's gas or diesel. As for era, something "not modern" -- anything up to the post-war period, maybe even into the 50's, would suffice.

What I'd like to do is model it as the power plant for a mine or mill. I might also be interested in using one on a mine loco or critter.

Well I have no plans for the "60" engines other than the photos I took and the sketches I made during construction.  But if you guys are interested I could dig out the old build pictures of the engine part of the cat builds and post the pictures to give you some ideas.

If interested let me know.

Good.  Do you also have the view of the other side? A possible source book.

Well you probably don't need my build pictures now to build an engine but damn it I finally found them and got them loaded so I am going to post them anyway Smiley Roll Eyes Grin
I will start another thread for them because someday I will finish the arches and use this thread for that Wink.


By the way Gordon,
Is the flywheel on backwards on that engine?
the bar holes look like they are elongated the wrong
direction but it is hard to be certain from the views.
