  1. Shouldn't we be celebrating 186 years?

    Your forgetting one important part. Tenneco, namely the late great James Ketelsen, saved Case long before he saved IH!!!
  2. Shouldn't we be celebrating 186 years?

    The CH Wendell book says: "150 years of International Harvester" nothing about McCormick or Deering in the title. They don't need to give the McCormick name any "air time" if they don't want to. It can be all about IHC.
  3. Shouldn't we be celebrating 186 years?

    Don't do facebook, but your all welcome to copy my post and put it on there.
  4. I know it's the 175 year anniversary for Case. -I don't want to be a party pooper, BUT......... IH had a huge deal in 1980 with 150 years (remember C.H. Wendels' book?). Harvesters' 175th was in 2006, long before d**r even. Not a peep from CNH. Don't get me wrong 175 years in ANY company is a proud achievement. I just think credit should be given when it is due. "NO CASE WITHOUT IH AND NO IH WITHOUT CASE" and no IH without McCormick, Deering & JP Morgan......... So happy 186th anniversary Cyrus McCormick & INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER!!!!
  5. IHC top ten produced tractors?

    Harvester's "F series" & the "letter series" were the most massed produced tractors ever built. Take your pick which model. The 1066 was IH's 5 millionth. As discussed before d**r* didn't even make 2 million total until the 40 series as depicted by this cheap POS tree ornament
  6. Fiat allis loader

    We have a FR-15. Good loader, turns extremely sharp. Fiat engine, Funk ps trans, pretty much all component parts.
  7. 392 V8 engines

    765#'s is all I can find. Bored v-345.
  8. Case IH 9190 - Ever Built?

    They look like toy models in that brochure.....
  9. Case IH 9190 - Ever Built?

    They were the EXACT same tractor. The early models had a mechanical cable/linkage and the later ones had a electronic shift but it was still a lever. They all had a "lock-up" torque converter. The lock-up could be adjusted to what rpm's you wanted it to lock up at, but it was done with wrenches.
  10. Case IH 9190 - Ever Built?

    In the early years of production(1978-1980ish)you could get the 3408 Cat or the non- intercooled 1150 Cummins, they were ST-450's. Later the ST-450's only had the 3408 Cat and the ST-470 only had the Intercooled 1150 Cummins.
  11. Case IH 9190 - Ever Built?

    CIH 9190's were a rebadged/red Steiger Tiger KP-525 Series IV. The same 1150 Cummins and the same 6 speed Allision Automatic w/ a 4 speed transfer case. I believe there was a total of 250 tractors made between all the extra-big frame (ST-450's,470's & 525/9190's) tractors. Only 15 or so of them being "factory" 9190's.
  12. bolts vs studs

    I'm sure this has been discussed here before; why do some engines have studs for head bolts and some use just regular cap screws? What are the advantages from one to the other? Studs are a PIA IMO. The ONLY advantage I see is you can heat the nut if it is seized. Is there some other "engineering reason" that I've missed? Same goes for connecting rods and manifolds, some studs, some bolts -no rime or reason.
  13. 1400/1600 series combine cab offset,why

    I believe it has to do with the forward gear box. The cab is offset, but you do sit in the center of the machine.
