I am looking at a later series G 15A D8. The pony is missing. What other machines used the same pony engine? What were the common problems with this model. What are the operating pro's and con's? Any advice appreciated.

Since you don"t have the pony to start with....and unless you"ve "just gotta have" the pony, convert the old girl to electric start. I worked on the pony engine on a 14A D8 a few years back that is identical to yours except it"s straight drive instead of "powershift". True the pony has certain advantages but all I can say about it is it"s EXPENSIVE to work on.... The main thing I saw on the machine I was dealing with was that if your not running it every day or keeping it stored under cover the mag tends to draw moisture and doesn"t want to work, and that really hits the wallet. Used or aftermarket parts are getting hard to find for it (the pony that is) and those that are still available through CAT, again, are EXPENSIVE.... Give Bill down at Iron Peddlers a call and see if he can locate an electric start setup for your machine. Cost and performance wise you"ll come out alot better off in the long run.

The 15A is not a power shift. It uses a torgue converter drive to a standard type transmission. It was a little odd in that it uses the diesel fuel for the torque converter fluid.....so you don't want to run low or out of fuel. The pony motor shared use with other D8's and D7's of that era. These were the ones (depending on serial number) that had the shared lube system with the main engine of which most were converted back to separate systems. They are a pretty good tractor, either the 14A or 15A. Seeing that you do not have a pony, direct start would be a good choice.

Thanks for all the information. I will check it out further. Did the 15A have wet steering clutches?
