🚜 Acquiring and Inspecting the Alice Chalmers HD5G Crawler

The video starts with the acquisition of a used Alice Chalmers HD5G crawler loader for $500. The host, Matt, inspects the machine, noting its better condition compared to a previous loader he worked on. However, he mentions that the steering clutches are frozen, which could pose a challenge. Matt checks the engine oil and coolant levels, observing the general condition of the machine, including the tracks and sprockets, which appear to be in decent shape.

05:00

🔧 Attempting to Start the Crawler's Engine

Matt begins the process of trying to start the crawler's 271 Detroit engine. After priming the fuel system and initially failing to get the engine running due to an issue with the fuel rack, he discovers that the fuel shut-down lever was stuck in the on position. After resolving this issue, the engine starts successfully. Matt then attempts to move the crawler back and forth to try and free the frozen steering clutches, but this effort proves unsuccessful.

10:19

🔩 Improvising to Reposition the Crawler

Unable to free the steering clutches, Matt devises a plan to reposition the crawler. He hooks a chain to the bucket and secures it to a nearby tree. By driving the crawler forward, the chain tightens and rotates the front of the machine, allowing Matt to align it with the driveway for easier loading onto a trailer. The improvised method works better than expected, and Matt successfully maneuvers the crawler into position.

15:28

⚙️ Revisiting the Crawler and Planning to Free the Clutches

Several months later, Matt returns to the crawler with the intention of freeing the stuck steering clutches. He explains that the clutch packs have become seized due to rust or friction, preventing the clutches from separating and allowing steering. Matt plans to attempt breaking the clutches free by shock-loading them, either by slamming on the brakes or hooking a chain to an immovable object and letting the crawler run into it.

20:30

🔗 Attempting to Shock-Load the Clutches

Matt hooks the crawler's bucket to the bucket of a larger machine, using the larger machine's weight as an anchor point. He then attempts to shock-load the steering clutches by reversing the crawler and letting it pull against the chain. However, after a few tugs, Matt decides that the chain setup is not suitable and decides to find a more robust cable or chain to try the shock-loading method again.

25:32

🛠️ Evaluating the Crawler's Condition and Next Steps

With the shock-loading attempt unsuccessful, Matt acknowledges that he has exhausted his tricks for freeing the clutches. He evaluates the overall condition of the crawler, noting that the engine seems strong, and the hydraulics are functioning adequately for the machine's intended use. Matt plans to steam clean the crawler, pull it into the shop, and properly disassemble and service the clutches to get the machine fully operational.

30:33

🎬 Closing Remarks and Channel Promotion

Keywords

💡Track Loader

A track loader, also known as a crawler loader, is a type of heavy construction equipment that is mounted on tracks instead of wheels. It is designed to operate on uneven terrain and has a front-mounted bucket for digging, loading, and moving materials. In the video, the speaker is working on an old Alice Chalmers HD5G track loader that he purchased for $500, highlighting its significance as the main subject of the video.

💡Steering Clutches

Steering clutches are a critical component in track loaders that allow the machine to turn left or right. They work by engaging or disengaging the drive to each track independently, enabling the tracks to rotate at different speeds, thereby turning the machine. In the video, the speaker mentions that the steering clutches on the HD5G track loader are frozen, preventing the machine from turning, which poses a significant challenge for its recovery and transportation.

💡Detroit Diesel Engine

The Detroit Diesel Engine, specifically mentioned as the 271 Detroit, is a type of diesel engine manufactured by Detroit Diesel (now a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America). It is a widely used engine in various heavy-duty applications, including construction equipment like the track loader featured in the video. The speaker expresses confidence in the engine's ability to start and run, despite the challenges posed by the frozen steering clutches.

💡Ether

Ether, also known as starting fluid or engine starting fluid, is a highly volatile and flammable liquid used to assist in starting diesel engines, particularly in cold weather conditions. In the video, the speaker considers using ether to help start the 271 Detroit Diesel engine if it struggles to fire up initially. However, he is pleased to find that the engine starts without the need for ether, indicating its relatively good condition.

💡Recovery

Recovery, in the context of the video, refers to the process of retrieving and transporting the track loader from its current location, which is surrounded by trees and lacks direct access for a trailer. The speaker outlines various strategies to attempt to get the machine running, turn it in the desired direction, and ultimately load it onto a trailer for transportation. The recovery process is a central focus of the video, highlighting the challenges and problem-solving efforts involved.

💡Fuel System

The fuel system is a critical component of any diesel engine, responsible for delivering and regulating the flow of fuel to the engine's cylinders. In the video, the speaker encounters issues with the fuel system on the track loader, including air pockets and a stuck fuel shut-down lever. He methodically troubleshoots and addresses these problems to ensure proper fuel delivery to the injectors, allowing the engine to start and run correctly.

💡Steam Cleaning

Steam cleaning, also known as pressure washing or power washing, is a cleaning method that utilizes high-pressure steam or hot water to remove dirt, grease, and other contaminants from surfaces. The speaker mentions that the track loader could benefit from a good steam cleaning due to the significant buildup of grease and debris around the engine area. This process would help prepare the machine for further maintenance and repairs.

💡Clutch Pack

A clutch pack is a collection of alternating steel and friction plates that form the core of a clutch assembly. In the case of the track loader's steering clutches, the clutch packs have become stuck or frozen, preventing the clutches from disengaging and allowing the machine to turn. The speaker explores various methods, including shock loading and manual prying, to attempt to break these clutch packs free and restore the steering functionality.

💡Hydraulics

Hydraulics refers to the system of fluid-powered components, such as cylinders and valves, that are responsible for various functions in heavy machinery like the track loader. The speaker briefly evaluates the condition of the hydraulic system on the machine, noting that while the cylinders may be bypassing internally (leaking), they are still functional for the intended purpose of the machine in its current state.

💡Restoration

Restoration, in the context of the video, refers to the process of returning the track loader to a fully operational and potentially like-new condition. The speaker mentions that if the machine were to be used extensively or restored, more extensive repairs and maintenance would be required, such as repacking and resealing the hydraulic cylinders. However, for the intended use of the machine, a complete restoration may not be necessary at this stage.

Highlights

The owner claims the machine was running about 2 years ago, so getting it running should not be too much of an issue, but the steering clutches are frozen.

Checking the engine oil and antifreeze levels before attempting to start the machine.

Jumping the starter with a jump pack to turn the engine over.

Priming the fuel system by bleeding the fuel line and using starting fluid (ether) to help get the engine to start.

Discovering that the fuel shut-off lever was stuck in the "on" position, preventing fuel from reaching the injectors.

Successfully starting the engine after freeing the fuel shut-off lever.

Using a chain and tree to pivot the machine 90 degrees, since the frozen steering clutches prevented turning.

Attempting to shock-load the steering clutches by attaching a chain between the machine and an immovable object (another machine).

Realizing that the chain setup was not strong enough to shock-load the clutches, and deciding to disassemble the clutch covers for manual inspection.

Assessing the overall condition of the machine, highlighting the reasonably good engine, hydraulics, and track components for the $500 purchase price.

Planning to steam clean the machine, pull it into the shop, and attempt to free the clutches, followed by a complete service if successful.

Transcripts

00:19

hey everybody welcome back to diesel

00:20

Creek my name is Matt behind me just

00:23

like Britney Spears oops I Did It Again

00:26

this is another Alice chers HD 5G track

00:29

load this one also came to me for the

00:32

low low price of $500 guys for 500 bucks

00:36

I just can't turn one of these things

00:37

down they are worth more in scrap than

00:39

that this one however is not scrap it is

00:42

decidedly better than the one that we

00:44

did previous on this channel the fell I

00:46

just bought this beauty from tells me it

00:48

was running about 2 years ago so

00:50

theoretically getting it running should

00:52

not be too much of an issue but he tells

00:55

me there's bigger problems the steering

00:56

clutches are all Frozen that could prove

00:59

to be quite an issue so with the

01:00

steering clutches Frozen basically this

01:02

machine should go forward and backward

01:05

but will not turn left or right and if

01:07

you can look straight ahead pretty much

01:09

no way that you could get a trailer

01:11

backed into this thing for it to walk

01:12

straight up onto a

01:15

trailer and of course behind the machine

01:17

more trees and no way to get a trailer

01:20

into it so we're going to have to try to

01:22

get this thing fired up and then get it

01:25

spun about 90° so that we can

01:28

potentially get it loaded up onto the

01:29

trailer that is all of course provided

01:31

that this thing even starts because if

01:34

the engine doesn't start that means

01:35

we've got a loader bucket that is sunk

01:37

into the ground and that is going to add

01:39

to the complexity of this recovery so

01:42

with a little bit of luck and maybe a

01:44

little bit of

01:45

ether hopefully our little 271 Detroit

01:48

that powers this unit will fire right up

01:51

boys look at the grease on this engine

01:54

tons of debris packed down in there

01:56

around the bottom of the engine looks

01:59

like a whole belly pans just full of

02:02

stuff out of all my machines I think

02:04

this one could probably benefit from a

02:06

good steam cleaning the most but it's

02:08

that time of year where we're not going

02:09

to break out the steam cleaner it's

02:11

going to uh going to probably be wearing

02:13

this grease until spring and it is

02:15

getting colder by the minute out here

02:17

but let's go ahead and check some fluids

02:19

before we get carried away looks like

02:21

our dip sticks down in

02:25

here

02:27

uhhuh oh yeah she's got

02:30

and it's also got dirt all over the

02:31

dipstick now since I just drug it across

02:33

the track we're going to have to wipe

02:34

that off this is how you keep your boots

02:36

oiled properly just always wipe

02:39

dipsticks on

02:43

them keeps the leather very Supple

02:46

1540 don't tell my wife this is how I

02:48

clean off dipsticks

02:58

sometimes sorry our engine oil is good

03:01

let's have a gander at this

03:03

radiator oh look at this it's got some

03:06

Dodge superpower on

03:12

here what is going on with this thing oh

03:16

that's interesting there's no radiator

03:19

cap we'll just we'll just use this

03:22

thing well it's not ideal and there's

03:24

some dead bugs hiding in there but

03:27

there's antifreeze and it's green so

03:29

when I showed up here to buy this thing

03:31

the whole machine was actually covered

03:32

with a tarp which was good and he had

03:34

this Bucket over the stack which has

03:35

been nice of

03:36

him so we shouldn't have any issues with

03:39

into the engine

03:40

hopefully it's been a while I think

03:43

since she's

03:45

run that's probably the most wallered

03:47

out rain cap I think I've ever seen

03:51

too yeah everything is definitely in

03:53

much better condition on this machine

03:55

than the other one that we have so I'm

03:57

feeling good about this purchase

03:59

hopefully it just comes to freeing up

04:01

some steering clutches well that one

04:02

actually

04:04

moved we'll see what we can do here

04:07

let's try to get this thing fired up

04:08

first the fuel tank on this machine is

04:10

in slightly better condition than the

04:12

other hd5 as well these things take a

04:15

beating since they're kind of sticking

04:16

out proud back here if you know you're

04:18

working in the trees or something it's

04:19

very easy to back into a tree when

04:21

you're not paying attention dent in that

04:24

tank and it's definitely it's seen some

04:26

abuse over the years too but nothing

04:28

like the other one we have

04:30

underc Carriage is in pretty good shape

04:33

we got a good bit of rail height left

04:35

the rail height if you don't know is the

04:36

distance between this flat spot and this

04:39

guy right here so that looks about I

04:44

don't know 60% maybe the sprockets are

04:46

pretty good the sprockets still have

04:48

nice squared off teeth on them actually

04:49

the sprockets look look real

04:53

good looks like they welded some new

04:55

ones on there this is all weld here and

04:58

it's actually cut in half and rewelded

05:00

right

05:01

there idlers have also been beefed up by

05:03

the looks of it they're nice and squared

05:05

off that helps keep the

05:07

track on the

05:10

rails all in all not bad for 500 bucks I

05:13

don't think let's break out the jump

05:15

pack and see what happens So based upon

05:17

my experience with the last one it's

05:19

going to be much easier if we just go

05:20

straight to jumping on the

05:23

starter which is kind of down in here

05:26

really hard to get the camera on you can

05:28

barely fish the jumper pack underneath

05:31

the boom arm and get it over there on it

05:35

but it is possible all right I think

05:38

that this machine was originally wired

05:39

for two 6vt batteries one in each

05:41

armrest here but I just hooked 12 volts

05:43

up to one side maybe that'll work

05:47

enough get this thing cranking over if I

05:50

slide this Rod right here it should

05:52

engage the

05:53

starter

05:56

contact nothing all right that Rod Runs

05:59

up here to the operator's platform it's

06:01

actually meant to be pushed with your

06:02

foot so maybe it just needs a little

06:03

more

06:07

Jam yet all right hopefully we got our

06:10

connected right this time

06:13

contact there we go things are happening

06:17

all right so we should be ready to turn

06:19

this thing over but I know that it's not

06:21

going to start at first

06:23

because there was no fuel in the tank

06:26

the tank was nice and clean but it was

06:28

bone dry so I went ahead and dumped a

06:30

couple gallon of fuel in

06:33

it and now because the tank was empty

06:35

we're going to have to Prime the

06:37

filters so I have this line right here

06:41

open to let the fuel bleed out but it's

06:43

after the fuel pump so we're going to

06:46

have to crank the engine over to get

06:47

that to bleed out all right I'm going to

06:49

crank it you guys just holler when you

06:50

see

06:58

fuel

07:07

nothing

07:15

yet starting to get a little bit of fuel

07:18

fuel starting

07:22

to just tighten that back

07:27

up fuel should be pretty well primed

07:30

up we're going to probably have to help

07:32

it out a little bit with The Ether but

07:34

hopefully she goes here

07:56

contact uh-huh come on

08:06

kick the starter

08:20

out there we

08:25

go oh come on stay

08:28

running

08:58

h

09:58

I

10:18

H yeah it's not picking up fuel all the

10:21

way I don't know all right it rebled the

10:23

fuel system we had an air pocket that I

10:25

didn't get

10:27

before so hopefully it'll actually take

10:30

off this

10:31

time

10:50

contact come

10:58

on yeah we might need some more let me

11:00

go see if I have any

11:03

more give her another go here got some

11:07

more ether and some more

11:23

battery still not catching fuel I don't

11:27

understand I'm going to try pressurizing

11:30

the whole fuel system and force bleeding

11:32

it with

11:33

air we're getting plenty of fuel coming

11:36

out of this fitting it's not making

11:38

sense why we're not getting it up to our

11:41

injectors I might pull the valve cover

11:44

off and check it right there on the

11:46

injector see if we're getting fuel right

11:56

[Music]

11:57

there

12:24

seems to be moving

12:27

freely

12:37

all right so this should be your fuel

12:38

line coming into the injector this

12:39

should be your return line from the

12:40

injector I'm going to crank it over and

12:42

make sure we got fuel coming out of

12:53

those yep getting all kind of fuel

12:57

something about this fuel rack doesn't

12:58

seem right like we should be able to

13:00

shove these in further I think I'm going

13:02

to take the control arm off the side of

13:03

the rack and run it manually I think we

13:06

found our

13:13

issue

13:17

yep that is the fuel shut down lever and

13:19

it was stuck in the on

13:22

position there we go now we're giv full

13:25

fuel to the injectors that's what we

13:26

needed all right I'm feeling confident

13:28

that was our issue

13:31

here hopefully this thing fires right up

13:33

now I'm going to try not to even give it

13:36

any

13:37

ether all right

13:46

contact there we

13:50

go

13:57

beautiful

14:04

all right it

14:05

runs that is great news now we just need

14:08

to get it out of

14:13

here so my plan is I'm going to try to

14:16

walk it back and forth here a few times

14:19

and then we'll start trying to work on

14:20

getting these clutches to break free

14:22

maybe we can get lucky if we can get one

14:24

of them free we can get this thing on

14:26

the trailer real

14:27

easy

14:38

all right we'll put it in first gear

14:40

here should be that guy right

14:43

there and we'll engage the

14:46

clutch uh-oh shouldn't like

14:53

that there we

14:57

go

15:06

oh yeah these things tracks haven't

15:08

turned in a long

15:27

time

15:29

all right well it doesn't look like I'm

15:30

going to have any luck getting the

15:32

clutches to steer well to get this thing

15:35

out of here here's my plan I've got a

15:36

chain hooked on the side of the bucket

15:39

there and we're going to improperly use

15:42

a yankum rope so I apologize to those

15:44

guys in advance and I've got it

15:46

connected up to this tree over here and

15:49

what I'm hoping is going to happen is

15:52

I'm going to start to drive forward

15:53

everything's going to tighten up and

15:54

that'll just bring the front of the

15:55

machine right around the direction I

15:57

need it to

15:59

to point down the driveway and then I

16:01

can just walk it right up there is my My

16:03

Hope here goes

16:07

nothing he he hey it's

16:27

working

16:32

all right I'm not going to lie that

16:35

worked way better than even I expected

16:37

it

16:57

to

16:59

here's where my smart smart plan comes

17:01

to an end how do I get this unhooked

17:04

now it's under tension

17:06

still yeah not

17:27

happening

18:04

[Applause]

19:26

what a sweetheart this one runs a heck

19:28

of a lot better than the other one

19:31

did not nearly as abused or beat up or

19:35

clapped

19:38

out we get those steering clutches freed

19:40

up it might be a decent little

19:47

machine there we

19:49

go we made her

19:51

home okay here we are back with the hd5

19:54

a few months later and I want to try to

19:59

see if we can get these clutches freed

20:00

up today so what actually happens in

20:02

there when the clutches stick is that

20:04

the friction plates stick to the steel

20:07

plates um and basically the clutch pack

20:10

just won't separate it doesn't have any

20:12

tension on it that's holding it it's

20:14

just kind of stition or rust or whatever

20:17

it may be in there um so sometimes you

20:19

can get lucky and break those clutch

20:22

packs free by shock loading the clutches

20:25

now you can do that a couple different

20:26

ways um but you basically just pull the

20:29

clutches and disengage them and then

20:33

because you're going no matter what you

20:34

pull those and you'll still keep going

20:36

and then you can run it into a tree

20:38

stump or something hard or hook a chain

20:40

to it which is I believe what we're

20:42

going to try today and hook it to an

20:44

immovable object so that when you get to

20:46

the end of the chain it induces a shock

20:49

load into that drive line and can break

20:52

those clutches free sometimes if you're

20:54

lucky that's what I was trying to do the

20:56

day we got this thing running

20:58

by stabbing the brakes because that can

21:00

do it if they're not stuck very bad

21:02

sometimes you can just stab the brakes

21:03

really hard while you have the clutches

21:04

pulled and in our case all I did was

21:07

break the the brake linkage on that left

21:09

side so let's hook the jump pack up see

21:12

if this thing fires up and see what's

21:14

going to happen okay here we go

21:19

contact bad ground

21:27

shocked

21:38

Bo it wants to

21:40

go get a switcher over to 24 volt real

21:44

quick just to make it spin a little bit

21:45

faster I bet it goes ready

21:48

contact yeah it either goes or we smoke

21:50

our

21:53

connection come on

21:57

t

22:19

all right so the old crawler's been

22:20

warming up for a little while it's time

22:22

to see what we can do about those

22:23

steering clutches now remember both

22:26

steering clutches are frozen unlike the

22:29

other hd5 we worked on a while back so

22:31

I've got two choices when operating this

22:33

thing I can go forward or I can go

22:35

backwards I cannot steer either

22:37

direction you're just on a fixed path

22:41

so the old cabelo here is going to have

22:43

to provide the steering for us today and

22:46

I think that we're also going to use it

22:49

as the immovable object for to attach

22:52

the chain

22:56

to

23:45

all right so we got the

23:46

hd5 tethered off to the bucket of the

23:50

cabelo and if you'll notice I have all

23:52

the weight of the cabelo actually

23:54

sitting on the bucket so we're not

23:56

pulling against the Hydraulics really

23:58

all as much as uh the ground or at least

24:02

the ground is helping quite a bit I'm

24:03

not just shock loading that

24:06

boom so yeah let's back up and give her

24:08

a go

24:26

here

24:32

[Applause]

25:24

all right I'm going to hold off on this

25:26

for a second I don't like this apparatus

25:29

here I didn't even pull on it super hard

25:31

I just gave her a few tugs

25:34

and I don't like this chain I this

25:38

thing's actually pulling a bit harder

25:40

than I thought it was going to be able

25:41

to let me try to find a heavier cable or

25:44

something to put in between there chains

25:46

or cables when they snap can come up and

25:48

do some radical stuff and that's why I

25:50

have the Anchor Point uh about even with

25:53

the hitch point on the machine because

25:56

if it snaps theoretically it goes

25:58

straight you know if you have it on an

25:59

angle it can break and go uh on that

26:26

angle

27:56

a

28:05

well

28:06

guys that didn't

28:08

work that's the extent of my bag of

28:11

tricks on trying to get these clutches

28:12

freed up so unfortunately we're going to

28:14

have to dive into this thing we're going

28:16

to actually have to pull off the fuel

28:17

tank the seat all that assembly and the

28:20

top of the clutch covers there and
