  1. Unfortunately, it's that monsters (the two legged variety) are fond of pitbulls, and dogs are what one raises them to be... it sucks. My sister had one and she was a ham.

  2. I put 10.00 x 16 on mine to get it to set level with 18.4x38 rears. Im not happy with the looks. To me they look too tall. I wish I would have went with 18.4x34 rears and 9.5Lx15 fronts. Most all new front rims are painted white and you will end up painting them anyways if you want them red. That being said if your old rims are structurally sound I would sand blast and paint your current rims and buy some new 9.5L x 15. Heres a pic of mine for comparison

  9. I remember in 5th grade they tried to make us learn some Spanish dance I refused to so they made me do a book report on it. I never forget the look on that teachers face when she told me I'd have to do the book report I told here I was fine with that we were at school and we were supposed to be doing book work not no so silly dancing you could have lit a cigarette off here face.

  10. I had noticed the Grade 8 head bolts Roger---------and thought about those big explosions going on under the head with the 6.3 compression ratio. (seems like I saw a 6.3 compression ratio mentioned in one of the links posted by Hammer) I would think Grade 8 bolts were a rare item back in the '40s----early '50s???? DD

  13. Anson, I noticed that International didn't want that head to fly off the engine. Those are Grade 8 alloy steel bolts that have minimum strength of 150,000 PSI. I'm not surprised though, even in the very early years, IHC used only the best metal and alloys available at the time.

  14. Been coasting yesterday and today------letting the Green Diamond rest up!!!!! But------I did look it over a few minutes ago and don't find anymore numbers or casting codes. Might be some under some grease/crud------but nothing visible. Did find a couple of these IH logos------this one is from top of the flat head. DD

  15. I "hear" you on that Green Diamond sound Gary--------very smooth (mixture of a deep buzz and a slight hiss).? Don't know what musical notes that would be-------but definitey music to my ears. I too hope somebody wants it------but needs to be someone close enough by to come pick it up. if not------before I go to the scrap yard; I might have to cut the Green Diamond emblem out of the side of the block. Funny story from its combine days: Me, my brother and "Little Red" (young black boy here on the place) use to ride in the grain hopper and swing out off the unloading auger and run rabbits down in the soybean field. Now Little Red wasn't big on going to school (that's another story for another day)---------but he would hang by my daddy's side most all day. One day-----while my brother and I were in school (and Little Red was having all the fun in the field); Red was hanging on the steps of the 125 SP while my dad was cutting soybeans. Dust was boiling------Daddy was a great big fellow and was standing up and leaning forward watching the feeding of the auger when he sneezed. His false teeth popped it-------but no problem. Little Red reached out and caught them in mid-air like Willie May's playing center field------handed them back to my dad who popped them backing his mouth (dust and all) and they kept on combining!!!?

  16. The spring-applied/electric-over-hydraulic park brake has been pretty much "standard issue" on CaseIH products for nearly 20 years now. Started with the 2100 series combines in 1995...red combines have had it on both large and small-frame combines ever since. 2100 series used a grease zerk fitting by the cab door that you were supposed to pump up with Hy-Tran to release the park brake; that worked like a saddle on a sow. The 2300s and newer you could release by pumping up the park brakes by using the foot brakes in the cab. One thing about a dead combine is that you can remove the drive shafts between the transmission/final drives to move it....you just have to remember you don't have any brakes with this setup. Also, on the 2100 series some engineers thought that it was a good idea to use the same fuse circuit for the park brake solenoid and air seat. More than once somebody would start roading the machine and decide to air up the seat....and have the fuse blow. That's a good way to make a customer mad. The 2300 series separated the two circuits. Steigers started using this park brake circuit on the 9300 series Quadtracs. They used the grease zerk fitting like the 2100 series combines to release the brakes. The STX Steigers and newer Steigers at least used a Briggs & Stratton pull rope in the cab to pump up the brakes to release them. The biggest problem with the Steigers and Magnums that I have seen through the years is that people try to release the brakes after they have blown a hydraulic line and drained all the hydraulic oil out of the reservoir. You can pump all you want....if there's no oil in the reservoir/transmission, you'll never be able to pump up the brakes to release them. As far as Jim and Pat's method to release the park brakes on a dead Magnum, that's the best method as long as somebody doesn't hook that hose up to a remote valve from another tractor to release it. Seen that done more than once. The park brake seals don't like being exposed to 2500-3000 psi hydraulic pressure for very long. The red sprayers use a similar setup as well.

  17. They made us learn to line dance in 5th grade PE class and I thought it was ridiculous. Perhaps if I had classmates like this I would have taken a different course in life ? I was practicing tonight and I would have videoed it for you guys but my daisy dukes were in the washer darn it....

  18. Looks like Leckie's made a good pair of work boots for driving your Farmall. From a 1951 ad.

  19. No, that is incorrect. So long as you cap the park brake release line fitting where the line connects down at the park brake cover, the park brake solenoid is taken completely out of the picture. You can also release it by using a regulated pressure hose tapped off of the tow tractor. What is being described above is when you are using the pump on the tractor and not a hand porta-power pump or a regulated supply hose off of the tow tractor.

  22. Thanks for bringing this back to life. I hadn't been seeing much of McCormick Deering or IHC stuff on Facebook, then I got a spurt... Finally. Otherwise I don't know a darn thing. We just had a couple of rib steaks here at home for our 56th on Saturday the 20th. On Easter (the 21st) Pam and Mike invited us there for a ham dinner. Mike used my phone to take this picture of the old man and his mother. This is a parade in Belfield, Iowa with a tower cooled IHC Type A or B gas tractor, flaunting its stuff, brand new. This is an early IHC Mogul 22-45 plowing, I'm told. A 10-20 IHC Mogul plowing. This little scale model of a 10-20 McCormick Deering sure caught my eye on Facebook! What an artist with cast iron and tin! A Farmall Regular pulls a binder. The two boys must feel pretty important to be in the field with Dad? This must also be a Farmall Regular? And pulling a binder. This is a Dealer's "bill head" on his stationery, with a McCormick Binder, horse pulled. This is literature of the No. & McCormick Deering #7 mower that runs in oil! A couple of boys on their Dad's Farmall M, and the binder behind it, setting. An early, early (1939) IH Farmall A "Culti-Vision" tractor. No starter, battery or lights. Early plastic steering wheel. I guess those disk front wheels were standard then? I had to add this next picture. It was some kind of high school parade in North Dakota, but it had a KB-5 IH Truck behind the lead truck. Hope all is going well with "All, ya'll" out there in IH Country! Gary?
