  1. When you bust your chops all year just to try to get barly enough to live on, it really gets your goat when you see somebody doing dumb things and making to much money

  2. Every view earns him money. Negative attention is still attention. I was not a fan before this. Didn’t and won’t watch his videos. I was told his wife is on the only fans thing. Did a google search which seems to show that is correct. (Dancing in skimpy clothes or less for money seems to be what that site is about) I did not get on the site and see it myself. I haven’t been in a bar for years but he seems to be the sort of guy that would last about 5 minutes after opening his mouth in a bar setting. Just a punk kid using his only skill (or lack of) in life to make money.

  3. Went back with 10.00-16 8 bolts, but jumped up to 16.9x38 wedgelocks on the rear, 3 sets of IH 400 078 R1 white wheel weights and got the fender lights working.

  4. had a rain here so gave me more time to check this thing out. got fuel system cleaned out and had to replace injection pump with one i had to rob off my other tractor. she fired up on her own power. runs pretty good. took it for a field ride and things appear ok. need to get some better rear tires on it and couple more sets of weights and get it field ready for fall work.

  5. I’m not a supporter of whislindesiel’s but have watched a few of his videos. Most for me are hard to watch so I choose not to anymore. The premise of them are apparently what a lot of people enjoy though which is kinda disturbing and telling to me of the direction in which our country is turning. So what I find interesting about this thread is how we all like IH and most of us if not all of us on here would find this very appalling have basically advanced the cause by promoting it in a way. I personally don’t wish harm on the man, but am not going to support him either.

  6. Wrapped up the tractor pulling season this weekend with our final pull of the year in Bancroft, NE this Saturday. Brother made some changes to the 856 for the final pull, mainly installing these radial tires I had. That made the 856 have to go on more of a diet to make weight, but the work paid off, it just barely made the 8700 lb weight class, and the 856 performed great. Here's his winning pass in the 8700 lb class.

  10. I've used the 856 for some light work around the farm but never had time to get the chassis painted. I worked this summer on building an addition to the shop. This is a 36x40 addition (same size as the main shop). This new part will have a parts department and a mezzanine on top of that. This room will be where the restoration projects will be in and the main shop can be opened up for the farm repairs again. New build has 3 inches of closed cell spray foam insulation on walls with 24 inches of blown fiberglass in the ceiling.

  13. Only been to 2 roundups. When I met forum members, we didn`t sit and discuss engines, we had fun. We didn`t discuss oil or paint or tire brands, we had fun. We didn`t rebuild any engines or control valves, we had fun. We drank a beer, went out to eat and watched the perty girls walk by. We had fun. Kinda like coffee shop, we have/had fun. If you see a post from me, it`ll either be a joke/ask for prayer/marital problems or sarcasm towards another member THAT I KNOW! I have nothing to offer in General IH. No tractor mechanic for sure and don`t want to be. If I see something I don`t like, I don`t read it. Yeah, the good old days are gone but I still try to have a little fun. And if I`m one of the disturbers, don`t hold your breath waiting for an apology. Me is me and I`m OK with that.

  14. I LOVE the smell of hay- fresh cut, slightly dried, dry enough to bale, everything. I used to love milking cows with the hay mow freshly filled. I’d stand under the chute where the breeze blew through catching the scent and just suck it in like a hippy down-wind from a fat doobie!!

  15. Here's my $0.03 for what it's worth. The Coffee Shop is my favorite forum among all the ones internet wide that I check. I check it every day sometimes more than once. I look forward to Sandhiller's, Ihirondiesel's, Troy's, vtfireman and the welder in AK (Can't find his name) daily life stories and other topics. I have to admit that I thought about interjecting into a couple threads "Guys, you are not changing each others opinions / beliefs so let it go, drop the thread". Maybe they would have and we wouldn't be without the Coffee Shop. I would like to request it be reinstated. I have no problem that if a thread goes off the rails, it gets removed with the title still showing with a "Removed" note. I do NOT miss the inappropriate subject / discussion threads but I really miss the rest of the Coffee Shop.

  18. I found this forum on the evening of Dec 31, 2017. Wife was working night shift as an RN at the local nursing home and I was on the internet looking for something when I came across the RPF. I browsed around and what I saw interested me so I decided to join. It took awhile before I was brave enough to post. But I read. Since those humble beginnings I have become (or was) fairly active. Through this forum I have gained considerable knowledge and made what I consider close and valued friendships. People from all over this great country of ours and the world for that matter. I have cultivated these friendships because these people share my morals, ideals, beliefs and concerns. It is easy to be comfortable around people that feel the way I do. But it is also healthy to be around those of differing opinions. That is how we grow, how we learn. I am curious why the Meisner's started this site. I would think, to give people who love International tractors a place to gather and discuss. A very noble and I am sure at times thankless endeavor. My question and I mean this with all sincerity, do you know who your members are? The amount of knowledge and love for the IH Company is very apparent. I think all of us on here have an interest in red tractors as a common denominator. But it is also a very diverse community of people with varying backgrounds. Complex individuals. People who are driven to succeed, to take chances, gamble on themselves. Not afraid to fail and pick themselves up and start all over again. Are not used to taking no for an answer. They are willing to do the hard work and sacrifice to keep this country safe and humming along. A little rough around the edges at times but that is the world we live in. Make no apologies. Not satisfied to sit back and put their future and future generations in the hands of just anyone. When they see something wrong, they call it out. Are also loyal to a fault. If you earn their trust and respect they have your back no matter what. No quitters here. I also think most on here have a well founded interest in the direction the country is going, whether they agree or disagree. They will discuss it when they get together. That is what leaders of a community do. I will admit my world is pretty small but this forum expands it exponentially. I have learned so much from the interaction with people from all over in the Coffee Shop. I wonder if you know how important the platform you (used to) provide us with is? It is a treasure trove. Lifetimes of experience and knowledge. In a lot of cases the only record as I am sure it is not all contained in books. I don't want to get into "this is your site, you can do whatever you want with it". I think we deserve more than that. I am humbly asking you to open the Coffee Shop back up. We need a place we can respectfully educate, entertain, sometimes vent but a place we feel like we can go to be amongst friends. Thank you for your time, Jeff

  20. Also, FYI, CNH uses SKF seals in my experience. Napa seals are SKF also. There's an SKF seals interchange guide online, and I have a copy. If you need seals too, you can save money and time both by using Napa and buying the SKF numbers. If you want, send me the seal numbers and I'll get the SKF/Napa numbers for you

  21. @DWV, You could very well be right, I don't know anything more than what I found on the CNH parts site. Those two diagrams were shown together and one says right on the picture FBK501-34887. I only assumed the next picture was the later serials. @Frank H, buying a parts book is definitely the way to go. In all the iterations of the website, stuff has definitely gotten lost over the years, but the parts book is complete. There are multiple online sources for them, but I've gotten mine from Binder Books. I just don't have one for an M, as I don't own one, yet. If you pull your bearings and keep track of where they came from, and send me the part numbers (they may have a ########R91 or similar format), I'll cross those numbers for ya. The ST numbers are the catch-all numbers that IH used for replacements and stocking purposes. They called them "IH Key Part Numbers". They usually interchange with multiple of the longer format bearing numbers. I gave you a ton of info -nearly everything I could find actually. But typically I just look up the dimensions and construction configuration in the bearing book, and find an SKF or Timken that matches. I am fond of SKF/Timken bearings for these older tractors. They're good quality and I don't expect to have any problems with them. They're often USA made, but it's not a guarantee. If you wanted to go less expensive, you can see in the lists, the general part number formats. These are all standard bearings, and you could get a cheaper one from McMaster or whatever. Just no guess on the quality.

  23. You're welcome. I enjoy it. A fellow forum member, @hillman sold me the bearing bible and I made the promise to him to help folks out when able. Keep in mind it's not complete. This application in particular is a little hairy. My post is long but read it all the way through. You'll need your serial number, and if you're in the later serial group, you'll need both to measure a bore for one bearing and to find an old parts book with the missing part number for the other bearing.

  24. I never heard of the guy. I watched about 2 minutes of a video and I thought it was lame. You know the dollar amounts shown on those videos are total BS, right? He could say something cost a fugillion dollars and put it in a video.... Youtube "inlfuencers" or "personalities" or whatever are fake as fake can be. In one video, he talked about spending nearly a million dollars to move a truck. Crock o' s___. You all are too honest in your bubbles, and you assume the world is as honest as you are. It isn't. The internet is full of liars, for the sake of sensationalism and the clicks. Dumb kids watch this and "hey Dad, a really cool Youtuber spent 80 trillion dollars on a custom bulldozer with lasers and a flame thrower". Sure kid. Don't get suckered. It's a super low budget TV show, posing as reality. Also, a tractor got wrecked. Meh, probably 100 of them burn every year.

  25. If they changed to more balls, it would be to increase radial load capacity. Generally the bearing manufacturers refer to that as "full complement". That is, the highest numbers of balls that the space between the races allows. There are two ways of manufacturing ball bearings. One is to offset the inner race relative to the outer and feed the balls into the wide gap between the two (sometimes called Conrad. IDK why.). One can only fit so many this way, because as you install more balls, the races have to get concentric to accommodate, thus reducing the size of that gap until it's too small to fit a ball through. In order to install more balls, a different way of assembling includes a loading slot added to the race. This allows for inserting balls with the races aligned concentrically. This loading slot increases radial capacity, but decreases axial capacity (to virtually zero in some cases). In the case of a bull pinion, a full complement with a loading slot is just fine -probably ideal. Usually a steel cage is added with a full complement of balls, because the chances of them contacting and damaging the bearing is increased. The relevant parts diagram is serial-number-dependent. Maybe this running change was the change you are thinking of. I have no idea. Either way, we can find out which bearings apply to yours. What is the serial number? For Serials FBK501-34887: Bearing 7, ST269A: (Per the IH Bearing Book, this is a ball bearing, Light series with 60mm bore, and limited, non-loading groove configuration) West Pullman C260 (IH Bearing Book) RHP 6212 (IH Bearing Book) Fafnir 212-K (IH Bearing Book) Fischer 6212 (IH Bearing Book) SNR (France) 6212 (IH Bearing Book) SKF 6212 (IH Bearing Book) New Departure 3212 (IH Bearing Book) Bearing 10, ST223: note that the IH bearing book only shows ST223A. Unsure if they're the same bearing (Per the IH Bearing Book, this is a ball bearing, Light series with 70mm bore, and max fill/loading groove configuration) West Pullman L270 (IH Bearing Book, for ST223A) Fafnir 214-W (IH Bearing Book, for ST223A) TRW Marlin Rockwell 214-M (IH Bearing Book, for ST223A) New Departure 1214 (IH Bearing Book, for ST223A) SKF 214-A (IH Bearing Book, for ST223A) SKF-214-J (SKF Interchange, for both ST223 and ST223A)(Light Series single row ball bearing, 70mm bore, hardened steel cage (which usually implies full complement)) BCA/Federal Mogul Bearing 1214 (IH Bearing Book) RIV-SKF (Italy) 11-4 (IH Bearing Book) Timken 1214AG (Timken Interchange) NOTE: (I had a similar bearing bearing in my project, a 12xxAG that I had to contact Timken about. The AG is a steel cage and likely therefore a max fill, the 14 is a 70mm bore. This number corresponds directly to the SKF 214-J, per both interchanges) Presumably, the other diagram is for Serial 34888 and up, though it doesn't say so explicitly Bearing 5, shows two part numbers: ST218A (65mm bore) and ST227B (60mm bore). You'll need to know the shaft diameter (the bore diameter) in order to determine which of these is appropriate. ST218A (Per IH Bearing Book, this is a Ball Bearing, Light Series, Max Fill (full complement)) West Pullman L265 (IH Bearing Book) (Loading Groove assy, light series, 65mm bore) TRW Marlin Rockwell 213-M (IH Bearing Book) New Departure 1213 (IH Bearing Book) RHP (England) M213-J (IH Bearing Book) SKF Australia 213-A (IH Bearing Book) SKF 213-J (SKF Interchange) -->Timken 1213A (Timken interchange, from SKF 213J) RIV-SKF (Italy) 10-A (IH Bearing Book) Fafnir 213-W (IH Bearing Book) ST227B (Per IH Bearing Book, this is a Ball Bearing, Light Series, Max Fill, 70mm Bore) West Pullman L260 (IH Bearing Book) (Loading Groove assy, light series, 70mm Bore) Fafnir 212-W (IH Bearing Book) TRW Marlin Rockwell 212-M (IH Bearing Book) SKF 212-J (IH Bearing Book) RHP (England) M212-J (IH Bearing Book) RIV-SKF (Italy) 9-A (IH Bearing Book) Timken 1212AG (Timken Interchange) Bearing 12, not shown in online parts diagram. If you have a parts book and get me the number I'll get you the interchanges.

  27. When we plug the rotor on the 1460. we take the two pins out on the sides that hold the grates up give you more clearance. then turn it the rotor with the wrench backwards and dig it out ,start it up clear it ,put pins back in the grate carrier rods/adjustment take off.been doing it this way for 20 years

  28. I am not exactly sure what you mean by the Canadian oval muffler, but we got an OEM from our CIH dealer for the B275, it is rounded at the top and the bottom is dished up so in effect the water would drip off the big part of the muffler onto the hood rather than run down the pipe to the manifold. It wasn't wildly more expensive than an aftermarket, and IMO it is a very good quality and a better design than the Stanley style. Point being a dealer muffler is worth the money.

There are quite a few "newbies" with high post counts that think that they are prominent members that haven't gone through all of the growing pains on the board that some of us have...since the FIRST board that started in the late 1990s! We have gone through alot of changes since then.... when there were only a few handfulls of full time posters.

  35. I run Trimpe rasp bars on my 1460. Trimpe bars are very aggressive as they cut down every other bar and hardsurface them. Think of it as a course file vs a fine file. They will outlast the machine they are put on and some people say it makes the machine eat as good as the next size up machine. I also run the Estes Disrupters on mine. It is a standard rotor

  36. Mike , what you described is what coffee shop is about learning about other areas , other farming methods , way other people with same interest as us live and do things . what I am referring to is the posts that entice people into arguing about stuff they can do nothing about on this forum , but keep people in a negative state of mind . the news reporters do a good enough job of that. thank you Mike , tony

  37. IMHO, the coffee shop is to discuss items pertinent to IH equipment, IH shows, Pulling, Parades , Encourage and embrace new collectors and restorers , Ag , Construction, and Businesses that relate to IH and collecting and restoring, comment on current affairs and an opportunity to encourage our fellow members with positive thoughts when they are hurting . However, not to RUMINATE in world and political affairs because your not going to resolve it behind a key board. No one is listening they are waiting to just shouting at each other keeping everyone in a tizzy ready to pound on the key board. I know the urge ! We all know the world appears to be upside down these days but marinating in the stew isn't going to do anybody any good. Best way is get to your City Council, School Board ,etc. meetings and vote to make a difference. Believe you me, that I respect all the people you mention above , but this is not the place to hold town hall meetings. Respectively , Tony

  47. This is a very interesting thread with a lot of great insights added over the years. There has been a lot of discussion about the problems with some of the tractors, but in my part of the world (Kansas City, Mo), I think there was much more to the story with equipment. I was not around in the heyday of IH, but have heard many stories from family members and friends as to what problems that they encountered and ultimately led to purchases of other brands, usually green. Around here by the time the axial flow was introduced IH had been almost completely pushed out of the combine market. I’m not sure what it was like in other areas. Once a customer had been lost if they were satisfied with what they had replaced it with, it seems like it takes an awful lot to get them to come back. Many die hard red fans can’t believe that someone would rather have one of those Deere machines with cab on the side next to the engine, but that is exactly what many people were choosing. When you add to that the introduction of the 40 series corn heads and 200 series flex heads from Deere, it just didn’t seem like a fair fight. Many people around here that did choose an axial flow over the Deere would often have conversions done to run a green head. Red combines with green heads was a common sight here. I believe there was also a costly settlement between IH and Deere concerning patent infringement on IH’s part about said corn heads. The introduction of the max emerge planter unit was also a major blow to IH here. Many people did not like the seed spacing from the IH planter especially in corn. I feel that here anyway, the air planters from IH were not refined enough for people to choose them over green. A lot of older farmers around here that worked by themselves hated the cab that was on the 86 series tractors. One older farmer told me he went to the dealership to buy a new 986 and when he sat down and realized that you could not see the drawbar from the seat he went and bought a 4230 instead. He said he didn’t know how he could hook anything up to that tractor by himself without getting in and out several times. The cabs only added to hard feelings that many people already had about constant problems with T/A failures and an antiquated hydraulic system. The hydraulic problem was fixed on the 88 series, but again too little too late. The sound guard cabs may have had their short comings but it was what people chose along with a transmission that most people thought was at least adequate. There were many problems here with 4430 drivetrain, but most people here were satisfied with how it was handled. By the time 40 series tractors were introduced many people viewed the drivetrain as bullet proof. I would mention some customer’s take on the V8’s in the 4568, 4586, and 4786, but that is one area where I don’t think that anyone could have done worse than Deere in their 30, 40, and 50 series 4wd. Those tractors were a debacle all on their own and I don’t feel that the situation was ever really solved by Deere until they just quit building them. I think that the IH payline division may have been a drain on the company as a whole, but did have some very good products. I don’t think enough people give IH construction equipment enough credit. If they wouldn’t have been so focused on knocking CAT out of number one and just focused on what they could do well, things may have been different. I don’t see why IH and Allis for that matter were so focused on having the biggest production dozer when for the most part their smaller machines were well regarded by contractors. Allis and IH seemed perfectly content to crank out large machines and then be plagued with final drive and other failures. My 250 IH track loader seems like a good machine to me, especially considering it was built in 1965. I think the bottom line is that IH just fell behind in R and D. Their machines were not necessarily bad, they just were a warmed over old design and it eventually caught up with them. I would bet there were many fights between engineers and management over what should be done. The situation here has certainly not gotten any better since the buyout. The green dealers are five to one compared to red. The only dealer network that is worse is AGCO. CNH parts distribution, at least in my opinion, is not as good since they closed the Kansas City warehouse. I can get parts from Deere out of Illinois quicker and I’m only 30 miles from the new CNH warehouse they built in Cameron, Mo. It’s really sad to see what has happened to this once great company.

  48. JD had closed center hydraulics back with the 4020 and maybe even the 4010. I think IH stil had open center hydraulics even on the 1086. I know I've ran a 1086 and hydraulics didn't come close to what JD had, even on tractors that were 10 years older

  49. When running on gas, open the throttle with the nuts loose on the nozzles until fuel is coming from all four lines. Lock down all the nuts, open throttle wide open and switch the lever from gas to diesel. It should run on diesel now. PS: There is a difference between the mag switch and distributor switch in the front of the intake manifold. The mag switch just grounds it to shut off the mag while on diesel. A single wire. The distributor switch opens the circuit on diesel to turn off the distributor when on diesel. A dual terminal.

  50. Put the distributor back on it. Your mag is weak. Did the mag come off a diesel? Gas units turn the other way.
