  2. 1966 Farmall 656

    very nice tractor Aaron, the rear hubs are a big improvement. I have a 656 diesel that starts good I know its against policy but theres an IH Wind breaker on Ebay someone should buy ! I already got one https://www.ebay.com/itm/International-Harvester-Windbreaker-Tractor-Heat-Houser-Vintage-REDUCED/122798889154?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3D976de0348310426f868c606e9700a834%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D122798889154&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507

  5. farmall axle planter sprocket

    I think hydraulic drive would be better as well I would like to see your design !
  6. farmall axle planter sprocket

    he is going to use the tube elevator if I follow him correctly. Russ you could ground drive the elevator but the hydraulics would still be lacking on the M
  7. farmall axle planter sprocket

    heres my sprockets off an H that were used on a side dresser I believe- just posting for future reference if someone Googles this topic I watched the video you suggested and found it interesting since there isn't anything like it around here. I have a bale buncher I use for a few small squares I make if I am sick and cannot feed rounds with the tractor ( wife can throw a few squares in an emergency) I saw a W6 with a hydraulic pump driven off the PTO with the spline still usable for PTO use. The guy put a sprocket close the PTO housing and mounted the pump beside the shaft. I did not take pics but it was well designed

  11. 1939 farmall rims

    Nebraska Test #333 October 5-11 1939 was a Farmall H with 10 x 36 tires
  12. Letter Series Styling Upgrade?

    I like those Cockshutts as well. a piece of trivia? Raymond Lowrey designed the 550,560 and 570 Cockshutts My vote goes to the Letter Series design with the white accented 450s close second. despite being the same sheet metal the 400s were not as appealing as the 450s IMHO.

    I would love to hear what you remember about the 560 and 06s
  14. On my 3rd reading of this book

    very true George, despite the ag equipment being line in fine form the company was doomed. I live near Brantford, worked at WFE and we saw first hand around here that there was no saving White or Massey along with the 1000s of great jobs
  15. On my 3rd reading of this book

    what I was getting at is the final few things that killed IH were out of their control. after years of bad management IMO they were trying to steer that big out ship in the right direction but they ran out of time due to factors out of their control
