  1. 1949 TD9

    Thats great that you bring your story up. I actually do get to bring them home as mine, and a real neat deal is the very first tractor I ever drove it the 706D that I already got home and running but I still have to go get the Loadstar 1600 that was the first truck I ever drove(Grandpa used to sit me on a Farmall Cub tire drop it in low then walk behind and load bales). I talked to my uncle the other day and he said that they drove it over there took the battery out for something else and just let it sit so it should run with ease.(let's hope so.) I'm pretty excited to see if I can get everything up and running again, they might not be painted and looking like new but I've always liked the term functionally beautiful.

    Thank you All for all the help, I plan on going up there this weekend to see if I can get it going. It's about 2 1/2 hours away so I always load everything I think I'm going to need and head out. The young man in the seat is my 7 year old, he thinks that it should be his tractor since Dad got the 706. he told me "it's probably as tough as him." I did find a winch hiding in the tall grass that has 1/2" cable on it gear and chain driven and has a pumpkin from an International truck (the size of a Dana 08 or 90) I wonder if its something for this TD9 or something Grandpa made. I'll get pictures next time I go up.

    This is the ole girl now, every piece of glass is in perfect condition. When Grandpa moved everything into town (town is a population of 33) that is the first time he ever let the TD9 sit outside, but that was a long time ago. It always ran like a Top, he just got to the point that he stopped using it. Everything turns freely so far. Here are some pictures.

    So one of the pieces that I have to get home from my grandpa's place is a 1949 International TD9. I remember it being one of grandpa's favorites but I don't remember how to start it. There are all kinds of videos out there but no real step by step instructions on how to start one of these things and that would be the best way to get this thing out and loaded if I can and I'm willing to give it a shot. Can anyone help?

  6. Grandpa's 706D

    So a little update on the "Turkey" long time nickname. I have been using the old girl around the place just trying to stretch her legs but I have found a set of 48" axle to loader brackets for the Du-Al 325 with a grapple. She purrs like a kitten the only issue I can see is that I think the clutch is going to need to be addressed at some point just doesn't seem to have the Grip that I remember.
  7. 48" loader brackets

    Does anyone have any pictures of the 48" brackets for a Du-Al loader from loader to the rear octagonal axle? Mainly the way it attaches to the axle. Thank you. It's for a 325 on a 706D
  8. 706 3 point

    It goes down with everything else raises and lowers very smooth, just doesn't seem to want to go past the first 8-10 inches. I'm going to put my wife in it tomorrow and see what I can find out from the ground.
  9. 706 3 point

    Ok does a 1966 706D have a gravity 3 point or should I have down force when I drop the control arm in the cab for the 3 point? I'm asking because I went to use the post whole digger the other day and it would only dig about 10". Fluid levels are topped off. Any suggestions/help thanks

    The pictures I posted of the joystick the guy said it was cable operated to keep costs down.
  11. In cab controls

    Can I do something like this? But with a 3 spool instead of a 2 spool and just have the grapple as the extra lever of to the side? I realize this will be expensive but to keep things clean in the cab I will pay a bit more.

    If that pump works where do you attach to get hydraulic fluid from the tractor
  13. In cab controls

    As long as I can remember it's always had a cab on it, that being said I don't necessarily remember that loader being on it. But I was pretty young then that tractor went to sit for years because Grandpa was always going to restore it but like alot of plans it didn't work out.

    I don't know if it works or not, my goal is to make everything as clean as possible, I don't foresee the loader ever coming off.
