Welcome and good luck! YT mag is a good source to get the word out but this forum is the best source for IH specific info and also where the most in depth serial number lists reside.

Elgin has 50,000 people and the only farming is in the real .outskirts, even in town you can't keep your rv in your driveway.

Well It can be done. I found my gpas 450 on accident wish I could find his H. If I saw it i would know it was it. It had a TSC wide front end, live hydruallics, and a 3 way valves he put on it. It went up North somewhere.
