  1. National anthem protests

    In addition to all the comments about the billionaire NFL players and owner actions, ..... I think we need to ask tough questions as to why tax payer $ should subsidize the NFL ?? Our vets need to be cared for and our bridges / infrastructure need improvement ....... WHILE our tax dollars are going to these characters!
  2. Paint Color - 1934 TA 40 crawler

    Thank you ... I will really appreciate that!
  3. Need Water Pump D 30 with 232 Green Diamond

    Thanks for the info Jingles ! You are correct R190 .. it is an HD and I was able to get the correct kit ! Appreciate everyone's help! IHCDan
  4. If anyone has info on the crawler paint decisions I would appreciate your help. I know the 1931 IHC paint decision was to paint all T 20 production tractors red. That is clear, although earlier tractors were grey. What about TA 40's and the later TD 40's? I have not been able to find the paint decision yet for the TA 40. Were all TA 40 's painted red since production started in 1932 ?? Thanks for your help ! IHCDan
  5. Hello Guys, The water pump on my 1938 D 30 with the 232 Green Diamond is leaking and I need a kit or or a new / ReNewed pump. I have checked at CarQuest & NAPA as well as eBay and online search without any success! Do any of you gentlemen know of a source for a replacement pump or kit? Thanks for any ideas! Dan
  6. My last IH rep is retiring

    This is a very interesting thread. Really enjoyed working with many of the guys mentioned in the comments. Give Corwyn Lepp my regards! My IH career started at the KC Regional office in 1978 and then was relocated to the Burr Ridge ( Chicago ) Product Support Center in 1981. I had various responsibilities there and was involved in the development of the Pro Harvest Support Program to support the launch of the Axial Flow combines. There is currently a lot of work being done by the IH Collectors Club to capture stories of your involvement of any kind with IH, IH Products or Dealership experience. This special initiative is called: Harvester Heritage. Please go online to our website at: ... harvesterheritage.org You will see we already have many stories about IH customers and others with great IHC experiences. You may be interested to read about why and how we developed the Pro Harvest Program .... the story is out there. PLEASE consider entering your own story on the website, ... there is a very easy to manipulate document out there for you to use in submitting your story. Thanks Dan Kennedy
  7. Hello all, Hopefully some of you guys can tell me what the approximate value of my 1936 TD 40 in good condition would be these days. I have TD 40 s/n TCC 4444 that has above average under carriage, is in quite good condition with electric start and runs smoothly and steers good. No side curtains. It starts and runs good but I suspect I have a leaking head gasket, hopefully not a cracked head because when I was using it today, it started steaming and after it cooled down some I checked the radiator while running and it appears I am getting some combustion gas in the radiator. The tractor has been converted to a later style IH Type "A" injection pump and that is all good. Any comments appreciated. It is a difficult decision, .... need to determine approximately what it would be worth restored with the repaired engine. I don't mind spending $ on the tractor as it is a good machine, and collectable.. but I don't really want to get too far upside down even though my plan has been to fully restore it. I know this project could become very expensive. Thanks, Dan
  8. Hello Guys, I just bought a nice running little 1936 T20 but it has had the fuel tank changed to a much larger (incorrect) tank) and there was no hood or side covers with the tractor. Do any of you guys know of a salvage yard or an individual who might be a possible source for a gas tank or hood? Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks, Dan possible source for
  9. Thank you very much Tom for all of the good info ! I have been gone and just picked up your post... I will look at the right diff housing tomorrow. Much appreciated!
  10. Pls. Help Determine Year of T20

    Hi 664 CDN Thanks for the response, ... I tried to look for casting dates tonight without luck. As you know I just got the little tractor and I just started cleaning on it tonight .... it is still dirty but I'm gaining! Does the main transmission housing have a date? I have not found one yet. Thanks for your help. Dan
  11. Pls. Help Determine Year of T20

    Hi Guys, I just bought a T20 tractor and need help in trying to figure out year of mfg. Serial # tag is missing on seat. Is there any other place the chassis s/n is stamped? I think the answer is no, but thought I'd ask! How about dates on castings, .... does the T20 have dates cast into the transmission or rear frame anywhere kinda like a 15-30 ?? I bought the tractor bc it runs and steers good, track shoes are excellent and u/c is good probably a little less than 50%. Tractor also has an add on hydraulic system and blade. Very bad news is engine has been changed to a F20 engine .... and it has the dreaded F20 radiator. Gotta change that radiator!! Any ideas on how to date the tractor ... AND, .... any ideas where I might be able to find a correct radiator, hood assembly etc. would be much appreciated. Thanks, IHCDan

  13. MD "type A" Injection Pump Fuel Pressure

    Thank you very much Pete !! I hope I can identify the return pressure regulator valve. This seems to me to be a likely culprit! I am not very familiar with these pumps but what you explained, makes sense to me. Any additional info on accessing the fuel flow return valve would be appreciated. Dan
  14. MD "type A" Injection Pump Fuel Pressure

    Thanks for the reply. I just thought of something when I woke up in the middle of the night .... There is a banjo fitting on the fuel line from the charge pump at the injection pump. Is there a SCREEN in that fitting like on the old Zenith K5 carbs on F20's etc ??? That fitting is before the injection pump pressure gauge so if there IS a screen in there it could be blocking fuel flow... I need to check that this weekend. All comments are appreciated!
  15. Hello, I am having problems with low fuel pressure on my MD type"A" fuel injection pump ... suggestions appreciated. Tractor starts and runs but I can't get the fuel pressure out of the red. Here is the sequence of events: #1.) I had very low fuel pressure on the gauge so I changed both fuel filters and cleaned / bleed the fuel strainer / water separator filter. (Still very low fuel pressure, way down in the red.) #2.) Installed a new Fuel Pressure Gauge, ... read the same as my old gauge. Checked the fuel flow out of the tank and it flows freely. #3.) As I still had low fuel pressure and I was getting some fuel dilution into the injection pump lube oil reservoir, I got an exchange charge pump from Central Fuel Injection - Esterville, IA. #4.) Installed the rebuilt / exchange charge pump, bled the air out and STILL the fuel pressure is nearly unchanged and way down in the red on my fuel pressure gauge. What regulates the fuel charge pressure? I am thinking I must have a regulator valve stuck open allowing excessive fuel flow back to tank??? I hope one of you guys will be kind enough to help me find the cause of this problem, .. I don't have an injection pump Service Manual. Thanks a lot. IHCDan
