  1. We need a dog thread. Please feel free to add as you see fit. New dogs, old dogs, dogs with tractors, whatever. Pictures are encouraged! I'll start. The first is our ~9 year old Australian Cattle dog-Corgi mix. She's her Momma's girl. My wife adopted her when she was single and she knows her job -protect the family. She's fiercely protective of both my wife and daughter. Put a new knee ligament in her last winter. She slipped in the icy tractor tracks in the yard in January last year and ruptured her equivalent of an ACL. It was a long 6-month recovery; she was pretty much cra

  4. Went to start the 1586 this morning (it was 10F) it's been sitting for over a month, not plugged in. I bet the engine didn't turn over 5 revolutions and it was running! No starting fluid either. It's amazing for a 1977 tractor with 6400 original hours can still start that good at those temps without at least a wiff of ether. Those engines are still awesome for being designed almost 50 years ago! Kudos to the IH engineers who designed those engines! The only other engine that starts almost as good is the 817.....

  12. We had some Kubota side by sides that where hard starting and had a fleet of grasshopper zero terds witb Kubota on them that you had to glow at anything under 70 degrees. Anything with a 282 on it or a letter series with a d in front of it. I remember the hardcore Deere guy across the road had to borrow a smta one winter because all his Deere's he had at the time wouldn't start. Needless to say he won't hardly talk to me anymore from the ribbing I gave him over that😂

  14. This is our golden retriever named Hydro. My wife always wanted a Golden and I was putting it off because I didn’t think it was fair for him to be by himself till we get home from work but a her sister had a friend that knew of someone that wanted to give away their 8 month old golden because their daughter all of a sudden didn’t have time for him so we went to see him and that was it, he was coming home with us! He is gonna be 3 on July 12th. My wife came up with the name because we have two gold demo tractors and they are both hydros so that’s what she wanted to name him and I said sounds go

  15. Reminds me of when I was about 10 and my dad wouldn't let me start the John Deere with a flywheel start. He said it was too hard for me. I was upset and crying and mad. He finally said "oh fine. Go and try." I was so mad I actually started it. Learned pretty young that emotions can help you accomplish things.

  18. They should make it right, they are a GM dealer and it clearly had an issue when it was sold, one you questioned before purchasing. Don’t get snotty with them until you have to but I suspect they will at least help you out with this one. As said it may not be totally free because it’s a not new rig but dealers usually want you happy

Yes I have a morton building 48'X60' built in 1987.Only problem I have ever had , the barn was about ten years old and I noticed some paint pealing from the metal roof.So I called morton and they said they would send me a kit and just follow the directions. the kit had a camera in it and a package for any pealed off paint.I sent the kit back and about a week I got a call from Morton and they ask If I had a place they could unload some steel,and I ask steel for what ,and they said they were going to remove the old roof and put up new steel.They said the paint was to thick and with all the expan

  33. Had International stayed in business this is the motor they were coming out with. If they had designs of going to 500 cubic inches in 84 who knows. They get 530and 570 with the same bore but more stroke. It requires notchesin block. But 340 hp and 900 ftlbs of torque it would have been a real tractor motor. Agco got to use them in the 55 numbers so they did live on for a while.

  36. I am far more inclined to think running in auto without maintenance causes this issue, people tend to ignore or forget differentials and transfer cases when it comes to repairing leaks and regular fluid changes. I do opendiffs at 50k, lockers at 20k t case at 20k and trans annually or 15k , motor oil @3k synthetic or not. Subaru wants full fluid changes at 30k I’m not a Subaru fan but this is good practice. It makes for a reliable system and those systems are in all the time.

  40. When that design first came out in the late 80s early 90s they would have trouble with seals leaking and sometimes they would bust up if you got to spinning with wheels turned. I know of a few fixed early on because of hotrodding. Yours probably is a lack of oil once issue though. I have never fixed a trans or front or rearend on those style chevys in my own vehicles with close to 800,000 miles on 4 of those style gm vehicles. Just thinking now with dad’s and farm pickup more like 1.3 million on 7 units.

  44. Thought I would give an update. I got her started today! I have been working on it for a few days here and there when the weather has been good. I had to do some temporary wiring to get it started. The switch is frozen and the new one has gotten here yet. The coil is bad too so i had to borrow a coil off of a different tractor. Seems like a pretty good running tractor, on the gas side at least. The next step is to get it started on diesel. It was getting dark so i wasn't able to play with it tonight. Here is a video of it running, just click on the link below

  45. I don't know a darn thing...... But I've picked up some pictures from Facebook. IHC, McCormick-Deering and even Milwaukee. I like this Milwaukee photo for its grain cutting development. It shows a little boy in the binder seat, holding onto the team of horses reins. Then notice Grandpa has a sickle, for early back breaking grain cutting. Then Dad has the grain cradle and wooden rake for a later style of cutting grain. And of course the newest is the Milwaukee binder. I have a catalog for one of these, that I scrounged from the IHC books when I was a partsman in 1974. This one shows
