I am about to purchase an 1835c Case skid steer. It comes with the TMD-20 engine. I haven't bought the skid steer yet. Here's the background that I know about the skid steer.
  • The engine is at the machine shop, it has been there for 4 years now. 
  • It has a new head, the old one cracked.
  • The guy that has it bought it like this. Just never put it back together (the original owner is my pastors dad, so I believe his word).
  • Skid steer is in the same place it was unloaded when the current guy bought it.
  • The original owner said it ran strong when pulled apart, but smoked like a freight train.
So I am just wondering if this is a worthy project to put back together. I think i can get the skid steer for around 1500 bucks.

I will also be looking for a service manual if I purchase the skid steer. So if anyone has one of those laying around I would sure be interested in it.

A few things you may consider has it sat in the weather and has any fitting been left open.  Do you have use for the skidder?

Well, i bought it about 3 weeks ago. since,i have completely rebuilt the motor. But I am waiting on a new oil pump.It should be in tomorrow. After that, the motor will be going in. I got the machine for 1700 bucks. As of now I have about 500 dollars in parts. So for about 2200 bucks I will have a good machine I think. And YEA, I will use the crap out of this thing on the farm.
