I was reading your post and am interested in your search. I currently own three 826 tractors, I will look up my numbers this weekend if I remember when i am at my farm. One of my 826 tractors came from minnesota and the other from middle eastern south dakota. I am currently located in northeast nebraska. I myself am thinking of starting a 826 search for my dads old 826 that he sold around 10 to 15 years ago. If you come across any info on a International 826 wheatland that was bought in northeast nebraska around 15 years ago i would be interested. My dad bought this tractor from cornlea, ne back in the 1970s, when he got home from Vietnam it was a international 826 wheatland with factory no ta, but had a rockshaft. When my dad bought it, it had all the wheatland fenders and platform, but my dad switched that all to regular fenders, added the fast hitch arms. It only had the wheatland front end left when we sold it to a guy in Iowa that was going to try and restore it back to a original wheatland. It was in great shape when we sold it in the early 2000s it started and ran awsome, it had a chrome straight pipe on it, had very dark maroon paint. any info on it would be great too. the combination of the wheatland with a rockshaft is kind of rare, plus it was a factory no ta tractor too. It also did not have a tilt steering wheel. I have pictures of it when we owned it, but we never wrote down the serial number. I would be interested in find it, if someone has some info on it. Even if the guy who owns it dont want to sell it, i would like to know what happened to it.
