  1. They're possessed, however if you throw away the badges and get a good priest to perform an exorcism before you put it to use, you can have a nice tractor...๐Ÿ˜

  3. This photo was posted over on SMOKSTAK by casertractor. It's a great shot of two brand new Internationals leaving the factory. The one on the left appears to be a 20HP Type C Mogul and the other looks to be a 2-speed Type A International maybe a 15HP version. Behind them is a Model F International roadster. These cars had an air-cooled hemi engine with an overhead camshaft. They were NOT successful and were only built for about one year. As far as I know there are only three that exist today.

  6. Hmmm.....well Sandhiller, I don't like the look of your forklift...I'm sorry to say......That is not a factory F20 wheel weight on the back ...or is it the front ??..It was the front ..but now its back the front....so may be its the back therefore not the front.. and that ''spinner '' on the steering wheel is not original...other than that it shoudn't be yellow or have an electric fan or a chevrolet engine but I guess you hillbillys out there are like hillbillies down under....if that creation lifts a ton ..that is good.... my David Brown forklift that is even uglier than yours only lifts half ton which makes my piece of excrement inferior to yours and if you think I am not at peace with the world , you are correct..having to leave the pristine wilderness of the Nelson Mountains to come back home and start irrigating our maize with an even bigger piece of excrement then either of our respective fork lifts...this due to an unusually dry spell with zero precipitation which has our humble 70 acre cash crop of maize looking more like a '' debt crop'' than anything else Other than that, I am still above the grass and should our old IH tractors do their thing....I might make it back to the Mountains...and my old Cook who is ''filling in '' for me...way up there in the boonies Things are going south down here, with the Climate Doomcasters crowing over this very hot spell and the talking mule spewing futher abundant fecal matter re the next varient of the common cold to strike all down...including the aged and the infirm...of which ..apparantly I am in that catagory...so I will raise the index finger to that ''evil personified '' creature..and carry on regardless Don't take my harsh overview of your latest foray into the labour saving benefits of the vain glorious International Harvester product, to seriously.....remember.....abject jealously is a terrible thing.....

  7. 656/666/686......perfect "do it all" sized machine as a general purpose tractor. As said above they have good power for their size and are very nimble around the farm yard or out in the field. Great for 6 row sized row crop work.

  8. Different engine than what the OP is looking for. The 312 is a good unit. Sorry that you had such a negative experience with your 686.

  11. My grandfather used this system with hanging up the grass to dry as well back in the day, was done when the weather was not sure if it wanted to rain or not and this way one was able to make dry hay! The system is used in Sweden still today, but was used in Switzerland, Austria and also in Germany. using wooden blanks was easier to set up then using wire. This video was made in Sweden and not Switzerland Buckrake in use

  15. I appreciate the concern Gary. I may live out in the country but we do wear shoes normally. I even got a pair or two of socks for special occasions. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Funny story about socks vs no socks. There is a place about 5 miles south of my house known as the Sock Nation. It is a joke now but the original story was that people on one side of the creek were better off financially and could afford socks while the people on the other side were the Barefoot Nation and could not. I canโ€™t speak to the truth but it is a very old story and Iโ€™m sure there are roots in the truth somewhere.

  16. If you followed my other topics this one is logically in-line, here comes another orchard topic. Brother and I purchased this 1949 O4 last fall from the original farm/owners grand children. We have been friends with the family as long as I can remember. I'm not going call this a restoration thread yet as we are mainly mechanically assessing and fixing first. We are in no rush on this project and anticipate this one taking several years. Just from assessing its condition we know it is extremely well used and has performed more than it's fair share of work in it's lifetime. The tractor was missing the operator cowling and the side curtains. We knew of a set of side curtains for sale some what locally and purchased them right after we brought the tractor home. A few weeks later I located a cowling. Kind of cart before the horse but had to jump on the hard to find parts as they were available. Any chance of getting it running was quickly squashed as a hole in the manifold allowed water to destroy two intake valve seats, stuck several valves and 4 of 8 push rods were mangled. But, the motor was not seized and the cylinders look as if the were run yesterday. After taking off the rear wheels and the belt pulley unit we quickly found out any and all bearings in this transmission were history. Mice also did a number on the clutch completely filling the bell housing with a nest.

  23. @lorenzo Our first Magnum was a year old 8950 bought sight unseen out of Hopkinsville KY . It had 560 hours on it then, 17,500+ last I looked at it. Engine has had 3? head gaskets, one injection pump, never done bearings or sleeves and pistons yet. Transmission been done a few times but only because of what it's used for. All of our 6 boxcars are between 12,5-21+K hours . With reasonable care 15-20 is really easy on them . BEST tractor ever built in it's size

  24. Ok, lots of progress but few pictures as time has been kind of short and I have been focused on getting as much back together as possible as quickly as possible to free up space. In short engine is in, clutch is done, radiator assembly is in. Next up is to fit and start repairing the rear platform and the inner fenders. Short of fluids engine is ready to fire. Today however was a bit of a surprise. Oldest kiddo wanted smores, since it was cool and wet figured why not have them for lunch. I also figured since there would be a nice bed of coals in the fire ring I would try boiling out the rust and fuel varnish from the original fuel tank. Now I had already written the original tank off as being to gummed up to clean and save. We already have a pristine tank off a parts tractor so figured I had nothing to loose. I have read/heard about this but never talked to anyone with fist had experience. Added five gallons of water and a half gallon of evaporator coil cleaner and set it over the fire. After 45min the water was boiling and had a decent head of steam rolling out of the filler neck. Let it boil for close to an hour, removed the tank from the heat, sloshed the boiling water around and dumped it in a bucket. Took a gander in the tank and HOLY MOLEY did that work great! Repeated the boiling process with just water to get some additional rust and debris flushed out from behind the baffle. I am absolutely shocked at how well this worked. The tank has gone from a write off to going back on. Im sure there will be some debris left over but that is par for the course with 84 year old gas tanks. So in the end, we had smores for lunch, sat by the fire for a few hours, and I have a clean original gas tank.
