leeklancher posted a topic in Coffee ShopI'm looking for International, Steiger and Case IH four-wheel-drive tractors to photograph for an upcoming book, Red 4WD Tractors. INTERNATIONAL Anyone have one of those wacky double Ms or other home builds? Interested if so . . . Front-wheel-assist tractors, either installed kits or factory options, from the 560 to 50 series. Definitely need the 806 / 1206 FWA models. The overseas-built light 4WD tractors The heavy 4WD tractors (4100 series, 2+2s, 7288, 7488, and the Steiger-builts 4388, 4588, 4788) STEIGER All but the Barney, 2200, Tiger. Includes green and red Steigers. CASE 4WD Any of the Case 4WD models (the orange and white ones!). If any of you have beautifully restored or those lovely original examples, please send me a photo at firstname.lastname@example.org, or post it in this thread. I'll include our wish list in a future post. At this point, we need pretty much everything. We have the same great team on this book, with several new additions. I'm happy to be headed out to photograph tractors! P.S. And I attached a sneak peak photo for fun.
Just found an ebay special 1/16 3588. I want to make it a 7488 and looking for new versions of the original tires. I can repurpose the old ones, but I will need to find new tires and rims for duals. I looked on Dakotah toys and did a google search with no luck.
I have a 3588 that is going to make me a raging alcohlic. Let me first describe the problem; at an RPM range of appr. 1300 to 1900 when lugged the engine appears to miss. It makes an awful sounding raquet, it doesn't appear to lose power, and when I lower it to an idle or rev it up to 2000 it sounds great--no smoke like it is missing or anything. Now, let me tell you what I have done to it in the past 6 years: new turbo, new injectors, new driveline and u-joints, new reman fuel pump, new dampners on both engine ends, overhauled the motor, and put on a muffler delete kit. I use it primarily for pulling a vertical mixer, bale retriever, ditches, and blade and scraper work--nothing that works it really hard. Any ideas gentlemen? Thanks for your interest!
