My Bombi needs a new home. For more details see the link to the CL add. Boggie at MN Outdoors has supplied new track belting, hardware and sprockets for the track rebuild when it is necessary. He also supplied the new Kevlar brake bands that were used in the differential rebuild.

radar,your bombi looks like a good one, sounds like you gave it alot of tlc! What was the correct fluid you got to put in the diff ??

I used Transhydraulic fluid. Caterpillar sells different weights of this style of fluid under their TDTO series of oils. When I rebuilt the diff I filled the case with the costly TDTO oil and was very pleased with the turning performance of the machine. I did not have the case top properly sealed and water found it's way into the diff case after one use. So after it's first use (1 hour) I drained the TDTO oil, flushed the entire diff case, cooler and cooler lines and resealed the diff cover top, problem solved. For the 2nd fill I went with the less costly Transhydraulic fluid available at farm supply stores and tractor dealers. John Deere, Case etc. have the same oils available.
