  1. IH air cleaner for 826

    It was actually starving for air on start up, when you would throttle up it would collapse until you pulled pipe from air cleaner to turbo off ,then was fine, upon further investigation we found out the importance of the inner air filter the outer filter was dated fairly recent with little use on the tractor so assuming that we never pulled filters to check inner, it was dated June 1978 and was not real clean looking when I pulled it out this morning, put a light in it and couldn't see through it, put a different one in and solved the problem, guess most people feel that the inner filter is for decorative purposes only,lesson learned again ,don't assume anything!

  3. IH air cleaner for 826

    My son recently purchased an IH 826 ,that was owned by our neighbor many years ago and was sold to his son for loader work before my son purchased it last winter.,The tractor was a pull on sunday farm on Monday ,with a homemade turbo manifold,and a Schwitzer 3LD 229 turbo added,the aircleaner had an added intake out the hood with a screened 1256-1456 precleaner. we have found the cobbled plumbing and air system doesn't give the turbo enough air as the pipe( a radiator hose with wire in it) from the turbo to the intake manifold collapses when the pipe from air cleaner to turbo is connected, when it is removed runs fine ,air cleaner not new but not dirty, Just anyones thoughts on how to add a larger air cleaner , , also looking at the large air cleaner outside the hood option as many pullers in the 60s and 70s did, Any thoughts, ideas or photographs would be appreciated.

  5. which snowblower?

    I have used an Ih 80 blower on a 574 ,a 3088 and a 766 gas with no problem,currently have a 9' lucknow on our IH 5088 ,96" blower should work fine But in the heaviest and deepest snow no matter what you do ,you will find times that the blower won't take it all fast enough and you wind up plowing,so no matter what your gonna be riding the clutch to some extent depending on snow condition and depth.a hydro would be a great fit for blowing if you had a 1026 or 1066. Generally unless your in an area that gets pounded by snow daily using a tractor with a blower for the few times you need it in these recent climate changing winters ,using low gear reverse and riding the clutch to get through the rough spots doesn't harm a tractor too much,take it from 38 years with a snowblower and a 1/4 mile long driveway and some neighbors with driveways nobody can plow with a snowplow ,we have yet to change a clutch or stall a tractor running a snowblower.
