  1. It’s been something I have talked about for probably the last 20 years and I finally dug the poor thing out of the grainery this past winter and started tearing it apart. It’s been probably close to 30 years since I rode it the last time (I was probably 8 in the picture. I’m 38 now). Works out pretty good considering the next generation is coming in March of next year. They can ride the old man’s pedal tractor, but this time it stays indoors!

  3. Brought this 766 last summer. It’s only duty now is to plow snow in the winter. If we get big drifts, maybe spin the snowblower. Maybe 1 day it will looks nice Carl’s.

  4. Hi all, new to this site Just picked up this beauty. Don't know much about vehicles this old. Any and all help is appreciated. Was told the motor was rebuilt about ten years ago and never started. Need to finish wiring. I would like to find an owners manual for it if they made them in the 20's. I would also like to see a written start up procedure. Thanks for any help.

  5. So I have been collecting parts and pieces of hitches for a couple of years on and off and finally decided to start putting them together for a 400 and a 560. In all the years I have used and abused them on 230,240 460 400 450, and 560 tractors I have not seen the damage that these have that I have found and it takes more than one to get a good one (not perfect). Usually we broke the lateral limit piece. I think I have parts from four now. So I have started to finally put one on the 400 only because the rear end is out so I can work on it. I have taken the last two apart far enough to handle them without a hernia and have started to clean the holes out on the tractor. It seems my 3/4 tap is dull or worn out as I have not even gotten one hole cleaned out yet. I picked with a screw driver and blew out with air and used penetrating oil. I tried to preclean the lower holes on the clutch side and the amount of grease packed dirt is amazing. Do you guys have a better way? Perhaps some brake cleaner added to the mix. I should replace the bushings/bearing in the upper pivot but have not gotten that far. For now it is a work in progress. I should replace the grease zerks as I go. I am not quite sure how I am going to do the rear hydraulics yet, I know the 400 has a check valve back there already. Both cylinders that I have that are good have the pin and plate depth set up on them so the last hitch is getting retrofitted to an older style.

  8. I have a Waukeshaw XA engine that is apparently the same as the 6-speed engine. It's on my Dad's old #8 combine and it still turns over and has spark after sitting since 1960!

  13. It’s pretty clean but age has rendered everything unusable , IE; windows all need weather stripping , top of door glass I’d loosing its lament, gauges do not work, Heater controls no work , interior is filling with surface rust , floor needs blasting before it get bad , engine run decent but very low oil pressure , rear seal & front seal leak.Brakes are iffy at best , 4speed tranny is so wore out you have to search for gears body paint look good from afar but far from good , lot of chips and pealing, rust taking over bad spots. door weather strips basically gone . Door latches and window latches are so wore you think they going to fall off . Lol I am hoping to refresh engine , blast cab and repaint along with interior , change from snap ring front rims , clean up bed and hoist , perhaps add tool boxes under bed in front of rears . I want a daily driver that I can use with my tractor collection. Add brake booster. Hope I can achieve it and still leave the original purpose look . The lift I want left on. The propane tank I want to do a pin striping of the late blacksmith logo as a tribute to the man who had it and I watched build that bed on it in 1967 and helped me so much in my early farming career keeping my junk going . if anyone can achieve what I want with this it’s the guys doing it , they specialize in IH known as IH parts of America in Grass Valley , Ca. About four hour north of me. Btw they are the ones that bought out Binder Books from Oregon about a year and half ago. Tony .
