  1. Replacement Fenders for 884

    Try a dealership that sold IH / Case IH when 84/85 series was new. 84 / 85 series fenders used to be somewhat common here in Canada since they got removed when brand new to install a SIMS or Laurin cab. I was at a dealer close out auction about 10 years ago, they had many sets of take off fenders stored away, along with full sets of ROPS. I am also kicking myself for not buying a mint set of 85 series flat top fenders advertised for $200 a few years back....didn't want to drive the 4 hours for them.
  2. 84 series wiring problems

    Oh I see it has the "T/A delete"
  3. 84 series wiring problems

    I'l wager some guesses: I think the orange light may have been added for parking brake warning? The round thing might be the "warning light control module" Supposed to make the parking brake light flash, at least on 95 series and it looks just like it, mine had a sticker on it. Ground might have been extra, doesn't look factory, may have been something removed. The green wires would near where the hi/lo beam switch is on the 95 series.
  4. 2455 IH loader

    I've seen stickers all over on the 2250 loaders, both in size of 2250, International and the IH logo. So I didn't think there was a "correct" placement lol.
  5. case 485 forward clutch problems

    Forward clutch pack is toasted. No experience fixing, just heard the same story from others, works good in one direction, no travel in other, than it's the clutch pack. The clutch interlock was to prevent "clutchless shuttle" since the main clutch is still dry and the F/R wasn't designed to do that...I'd fix that.
  6. 885XL experimental?

    Be interesting to know how it differed from a regular UK market 885XL fwa Those had the XL cab and ZF front wheel drive.
  7. A Rich Vein of IH tractors ( Pics)

    The same no compromise decal and "IH magnifying glass" are on all the tractors/combine, was this IH decaling from new, or owner added?
  8. CIH offset tractor 265

    265 was a Mitsu build, whereas the 274 was a Kimco build.
  9. CaseIH 85 - 95 Series Tractors.

    Probably got 8000 or so hours on the 495, hour meter broke 15 years ago though. Did an inframe and injector pump maybe at "7500" just cause it was smoking upon start and getting slow to start. Clutch issues should be minimal depending on operator and if it wears a loader. Dry clutch, simple design. We've only done one clutch because it wore out (loader on tractor, 11 years use on original clutch) But we've had to do others since, but not because they wore out, but because of seals letting go and letting oil inside the clutch housing.
  10. CaseIH 85 - 95 Series Tractors.

    I've seen far more with the "shuttle shift" than the T/A. I've driven a select few with the T/A. It was standard on the 885 / 895 etc unless shuttle.
  11. CaseIH 85 - 95 Series Tractors.

    Case IH did offer the C series which were the back end of the old ROPS station Doncaster tractors with a Perkins engine. C50/C60/C70/C80/C90/C100 McCormick built the C series for a while, but I think when they stopped building in Doncaster that line died.
  12. CaseIH 85 - 95 Series Tractors.

    Approx: 1978 early 84 series white & red, inline shift transmission, lever on column if "T/A". Kimco 4x4 1982 mid 84 series solid red, H shift pattern, lever on column if T/A (these were the IH 85 series overseas) ZF 4x4 1985 last 84 series, black and red, same as mid 84 series but Case IH decals 1985 early 85 series, black and red, Case grill, H shift pattern, ZF 4x4, lever T/A 1987 late 85 series, center line 4x4, H shift pattern, electric shift T/A. XL factory cab option 1991 95 series, new grill and dash, H shift pattern, , electric shift T/A case international all same height, XL factory cab option Still run a 495 here, parts easy to get. Baled a lot of sqaure bales with it. IPTO and gearing are perfect, synchro shift, easy to gear back in a heavy windrow while still turned to watch baler pick up
  13. Case IH 385 black smoke?

    They do smoke and will roll coal, experience with D179 in next size up. No smoke when working normal, but load it good, like pulling a grade and watch "the power"
  14. Case IH calendar

    I saw sales literature showing a work light kit for a square baler and thought that was the dumbest option ever since hay would be too damp to bale at night! Since learned that it does get TOO dry in places.
  15. hydro 84 clicking noise from below my feet

    Plugged fuel filters? Clicking can't be good, does it matter what gear your are in or engine rpm etc? Might help someone diagnose.
