He musta lived near the sea as the gulls have crapped all over thatClarke T 12000. Widely used on many telehandlers. If the torque converter is back, should have transmission back by end of week.
I think it must of known we were thinking of updating it
Will have to keep it a while longer now
Looking for front transmission mounting bracket ( inner, near boom)
Been welded by previous owner. Part now obsolete

that wouldnt be made out of MS tho, more than likely a medium carbon steel, likes of weldox or similar would let it away.Draw around the plate with chalk on the bench, chop the brocken part off right across carefully leaving the gusset in place, drill and slot a new piece of flat bar and use the drawing on your bench to re set it and weld all along the new joint, strengthen if you feel it needs it and space allows.
Can you get to the end of the fuel line feeding the lift pump?Good luck! presume parts can be sourced from some other supplier than CAT themselves? Our lift pump has packed in, unfortuently with the boom down which is being a right pain on access given I cant get her started longer enough to lift clear.
I tried to sipion disel back but as soon you try an lift the engine would wilt. I'm sure with a second set of hands someone could have balanced a tub - but I've managed to swap the pump yesterday by sliding the bonnet off, got her started last night. Then spotted a new leak coming from under the chassis. ThanksCan you get to the end of the fuel line feeding the lift pump?
If so feed diesel down it with either a 12v fuel pump or a primer bulb,this will get your machine running to lift the boom out of the way.
Chris e mailed me back last night, has a bracket, should have engine mounting rubber brackets & hopefully in this afternoons post.hope you’re not in a hurry .it took 4 weeks for him to get my parts ready but I had a large shopping list.i did think his prices were reasonable though
