  7. Well, It has not rained in quite a while. 90 plus degree temps. Crops are burning up and hay is not growing like normal. Got some time yesterday and today. Brother painted some of frame and installed lower fuel tank. We got fluids filled up. And got it cranked. Spent about an hour and a half on dyno. Runs and drives. Need to check pressures yet and on to cosmetics.

  9. In as much as they own Navistar now and the International brand name, I think they should call it International Scout. Come out with their EV, but also gas and diesel models and how about an International pickup? Back to lurking...

  13. My dad had the 300 hoe, 20’ end transport. When I started using it, I wasn’t big enough to raise the transport wheels, so dad would show up after I had it hooked up to the 3pt and he would flip the wheels up for me. Good memories!!!

  17. I wish I could ask “Johnny Reb” about his views. I bet they’re nothing like the way he’s portrayed by the modern American holier than thou intellectual. I doubt if he’s fighting brutal hand to hand combat just for the fun of it, but I’d like to hear his story.

  19. Well, I got some tires. I wasn’t able to get the firestones and avoided the malhotra as was suggested. I went with the Titans which look like good tires and are made in the USA. Hopefully they’ll last me a while. Thanks for all responses.

  20. to coin a phrase, "nice headlights!" followed by a slap. Oh wait. The copper tubing looks like it was grafted into the system. Actually, I doubt that very many Tel a Depth are still working. The one on my 560 gas worked so annoyingly that I disconnected it and run the drawbar off a remote. Personally, I wouldn't call it much of a loss if it got destroyed. Those lights would sure look good on my 460HU.

  23. As youve noticed I aint been round much but heres the deal. November the 13th our house burnt to the ground and come to find out her parents had dropped the owners insurance, the house and property belonged to my longtime girlfriend and her parents didnt bother to inform either of us this two yrs ago so basically we lost practically all we owned. Then in March her Father got sick and passed away and we were staying in her parents basement so all this apparently throwed a loop in my girlfriends head and we broke up so Ive been having to find place to live and recover from this fire but ya know its not as bad as people planting bombs to blow you up or shot you down or whatever else and it aint 120 degreees and Im not in the desert on the other side of the world so life goes on. Saving my dollars and within a six months to a year I will be buying myself a home here in Columbia, Ky. and prefer out on the north side of the county where I grew up and maybe a acre or two lot so I can build that metal bldg Ive always wanted and still have a 1973 International 1066 that belongs to my neighbor that lived across the road from us and I helped them all the time when I was young and living at home and the tractor is completely original, with all sheetmetal even the heat sheilds are still bolted on and has the original IH muffler and raincap. My buddy has retired the old tractor and it sits in the driveway of a old tobacco barn and has for a number of years and he said only for me but I could have it for $6,000 and within two yrs I will buy it and will restore it, we agreed on that price and he is sticking to it.

  25. We were all 38 inch rows . Some 40’s on west side but 38 was normal . most guys out here used till n pack to crust break but on some land left us vulernable to wind . I could not afford to have a dedicated hoe just for rain events so I used a till n pak that I already had . The wealthy farmers had the IH hoes . what’s that tell you I had to wait till sold the farm and retired and 76 to afford a four row cotton rotary hoe !! tony

  28. It sure seemed like it. Mom's family had a big place between Ozark and Mulberry Arkansas on white oak creek. Some bottom land, pastures and mountains with timber. There was still cattle and a sawmill when I was a kid. Apparently they had a big operation back in the day, cotton, lumber, etc. Grandpa got bought out of his share and bought a truck in the 1920s and made good money. Bought a store in Ozark during the depression and did well. I never got anything from either... When I was a kid there were still black families that had mom's last name. Some worked for Grandpa and they were treated like family I am told. In the 30s grandma and the kids made a trip to California to visit her family. Grandpa didn't go so 'uncle' Sherman drove them. He wasn't allowed to eat in the restaurants or stay in the motels along the way because of segregation. When they got to California he stayed in the house and ate with them like family. To be honest Grandpa didn't always treat his own family nice. Well not that I could tell when I was around him. Grandma did though. On dad's side Some were in Kentucky and Tennessee and fought for the south. Dad's mom was from Central Illinois and I always assumed her family fought for the north. However now that I think about it her family were Mennonites or similar from Germany. They may have arrived after the Civil War or been objectors and not fought. Grandma left the religion and went to west Texas where she could find a man willing to put up with her! Thx-Ace

  29. If you have a neighbor that has a 7100,7200,8900 series Magnum take your dash there and try it in your tractor . Let me know after that if it’s in the tractor and I can send you a wiring schematic. Danny

  32. Your welcome. I just think it’s the handiest things. It might not remove a bolt that’s rusted and needs 200 lbs of force, but I work with clean 165ft/lb and 190 ft/lb lug nuts every so often, an it takes them off quick. The 3/8 sockets just fit in a lot of places better. (Without adapters)

  33. A grain drill metering system is a controlled spill. We planted with a grain drill for years and hated the stands. Went to a 1200 toolbar at 20" and have grown the best beans we have ever had. Great stands, spacing and depth. A planter is designed (mostly) for singulation, not so much on a grain drill. I wouldnt be afraid to plant in 30" rows today, but we have the 20" planter already. I will never plant beans again with a grain drill, they call them a grain drill for a reason, not a bean drill. Just my two cents.

  37. Slightly off topic - but the factory wasn't always very good at this originally. My 666 the original decal is almost perfectly positioned - so its 1/2 click OFF the pointer. The pointer is right between the letters! If I move the pointer 1 notch on the switch -- its 1/2 off the other way. And yes its the original switch notched into the plate correctly. The decal is just not applied right. Original. Factory. Probably built Monday morning....with a hangover.

  39. I have no knowledge about anyone in my family that fought on either side, but dad told me that grandpa had a Springfield rifle from the civil war. A cousin of his through a fit because he never received anything from the family farm, so grandpa gave him the rifle, then he promptly sold it. Grandpa told him to never step foot on the farm again. That was all I was told, no names were mentioned, so don’t have a clue as what part of the family it was.

  45. https://www.tractordata.com/farm-tractors/000/3/4/344-international-harvester-606.html Tractordata usually has the most good information in one place for any given tractor. Some people crap on it but it's a lot better than it was years ago. Someone is constantly correcting and updating information. The serial number is how you determine year, usually. Tractordata pages usually have a list of the first serial number used for each year of production. When yours is between two numbers from adjacent years on the list, it was built in the year corresponding to the lower number. In your case, higher than 1965 but lower than 1966, so it's a 1965. Not sure if you want to, or should, fabricate your own propane tank. These tanks are under pressure and subject to a lot of rules and regulations if you want them filled. If you're a professional welder and certified in building pressure vessels, by all means go for it. Maybe consider building a "cosmetic" tank that folds open and hides a forklift tank inside (I think there's regulations and concerns with that too, i.e. if the forklift tank leaks, it turns the cosmetic tank into a pipe bomb)? Yellow would be the stock color for a Freeman loader. Personally I don't think it would look right red, or white. Kinda like if you painted the tractor blue. It just wouldn't look right.

  46. well i got it kinda wired up and for some reason things were acting a lil funky and i was tired and quit on it - had some other pressing issues and didnt get back to messing wtih it, truck quit today wife had to be rescued, going after it tomorrow morn and then have to help SIL chain saw some trees they had trimmed at the new place we just helped them move into so not sure if I will have the endurance to mess with it tomorrow but will def keep you guys posted when I get onto it again - im not sold on the whole thing yet im still on the fence - got to looking at their video and wiring and they DO NOT recommend met wiring it up the way it was so going to go back and put it teh way they say to do it. It shoudl ONLY be wired to the phase shifter DIRECT from wall power first regardless of heater and contactor - that may be where I made my first mistake not sure if I hurt the shifter or motor so will see
