  1. Took the wife and daughter up to Upper Sandusky here in Ohio to see these. Here are some pics that I took. Hopefully they turned out some what decent

  2. To celebrate the 50th week of 2023, I decided to broaden the topic a bit. IH used the model 100 multiple times, so let's see them all! Hydro 100, Farmall or International 100, Cub Cadet 100, 100 manure spreader, your L100 pickup, whatever you have! Enjoy.

  3. Last year I noticed the 1206 on the Lely for track prep, I see it is there again this year. Looks like either 806 or a '56 series also sitting in the center of track. But can't tell for sure what it is. Nice seeing them there. Cool 😎 Any body there watching races this weekend? Was watching video that Kenney Wallace posted on his YouTube Channel Edit: Other tractor, It's an 806 found a video of it working the track

  4. Not in the same scale but I put up my own display, a string of LED lights, battery powered, that come on at 5:30 and shut down 6 hours later. This is the pic from last year. Lights go round and round.

  6. My grandfather got a new 4230 in 73. It sold at his sale in the 90’s. Us kids put slot of practice time driving that tractor when we would visit. This is a picture of me at a few months old in 74 and another of my brother and I in 77 on the tractor. Then another picture of dad and me and my brother and sister splitting wood the year he put together his wood splitter and used his friends 340 for the hydraulics. 40 years later it’s still splitting wood with a used 16 hp single cylinder briggs on it now he burned 11 cord a year and the garage takes a few too.

  7. I don't do anything extravagant. If I was at the tree company yet I'd like to bring a bucket truck home and outline the barn. When I was the landscape foreman I'd put lights up for customers. One spent over 10k for his yard. I'd like to get a rolling tractor or 2 to decorate but we'll see.

  10. Worked on a barn roof and a buddy of mine put some lights up for us. The man lift makes both those things a LOT easier. Well worth paying him to bring the lift over.

  11. One new shoe for the 560 tonight. Different seat tho I didn't realize I need a couple of spacers to go under it. Luckily I have a parts breakdown that confirmed what I suspected after mounting the seat tonight. Lil bit of side to side slip so I will need to dig into that.... Middle Pic of the seat someone had put on it. If the one I jist bought doesn't work out it may go back on. 🙄

  15. I might not give the perfect explanation but I’ll give a start. The hydro transmission came out as an option in about 1965 on the 656. Later in the 56 series run they came out with the 1026 that was hydro only. When the 66 series came out the hydro was an option on the 666 and I believe the 966 & 1066(I can’t remember if both or not). At some point during the 66 series run, the Hydro 70 replaced the hydro option 666 and the Hydro 100 replaced the hydro option 966/1066. The Hydro 86 replaced the 70 and then Hydro 186 replaced the 100. There are a lot of folks here that can give you a more accurate detailed answer but that’s the basics.

  16. Me on our Cub Cadet 100 in 1966. First one we owned. My brother and older sister and I used to fight over who got to mow the lawn. Younger sister mowing during the summer when my brother and I were out working moving irrigation pipe or loading hay and straw.

  18. Finished this morning, good thing I think I am coming down with sinus infection. About the time I got back to the shop they called and said we have broke/cracked the C frame and ball mount. I said good luck it will be at least Monday before I come back.

  19. For those that have shared well wishes for Cassie, our Dog Thread cover girl, I just got home and spoke to my wife. No need for drama or suspense. It's mostly good news. Or put more appropriately, the least-bad news we could expect. Bottom line: she's old, some things are failing her but nothing is tragic yet and we don't need to be making those hard decisions, yet. She's getting a little incontinent due to age. So we got a medication to try. She has a doggie door and was perfect about using it for years. Part of that could also be cognitive dysfunction due to age. I'm calling it doggie dementia. I guess there's a special food that might help, that were going to try. He tested her vision using a cotton ball and confirmed she can still see okay. Her legs are quite atrophied, but there's only so much we can do about that. I guess she gets as much meat from the table as she wants from now on. But, the important thing is, we get to keep her for the foreseeable future. I'm getting choked up writing this, and it's GOOD NEWS!! I really do appreciate you guys giving a darn about my dog. And not to be ignored entirely, my boy Franklin (my English Setter) and I had a talk. It's time for him to step up and take care of his sister.

  22. @KWRB i am glad to hear the news isn’t all bad! The dementia thing is a challenge, my childhood dog got that way, used to get stuck in the shower, would start barking until someone came and guided him back to bed. He was a great dog, I miss him.

  25. I was hoping to open this thread up and see something like this Jeff. Sorry it wasn't. Joking aside a person has to be more careful all the time, if the people behind these scams would focus their efforts to something positive all humanity would be better off.

  27. An interesting tidbit to the Hydro lineage is the 1026 had a Cat II three point but the 1066 Hydro was Cat III like the gear drive version. In 1974 the 966 Hydro essentially became the Hydro 100 albeit with the D436 instead of the D414 engine. The 186 Hydro continued with the D436 and it's successor the 3488 became the only IH tractor to have the D466 engine. The company essentially lost money on every 1026 produced so it was strange the 1066 Hydro ever made the lineup.

  28. CP rail line is only a couple miles from me. The train has a stage car and they usually get some pretty decent entertainers to ride the train across western Canada and stop at most small towns on the line where they put on a 45min. concert and take donations for the local food banks. I wasn’t able to get in to see it this year, but usually make a point of it. A good friend of mine is usually the engineer on it bringing it through my local town as he’s got the highest seniority in the local pool. It definitely is amazing to see.

  29. Great explanation, Pickett! IH renamed the 666, 966 and 1066 hydro machines because they had less horsepower to the ground due to the hydraulic drive. Customers thought the hydro should pull the same as their gear drive machine, but were disappointed. So, the Hydro 70 and 100 eliminated the confusion. IH also produced the 826 as both a gear drive and a hydro during the same time that the 1026 was in production.

  34. Bleed the brakes -- then cap the lines to the rear frame where the brake lines goto each brake look at the front of each rear axle for the small line -- JIC flare fitting Do you have pedal now ? if yes , then the axles will have to be removed and replace the orings on the brake pistons if no , then check the master cylinders Be sure that the 'standpipe' in the brake reservoir has not slipped down this holds the return oil to the top of the reservoir, the aluminum tube can get loose and slip down lowering the oil level

  35. There's a part of Bismarck ND that's called candy cane lane. Looks a lot like that. I applaud people who put in the time to do those displays for the public. Kudos to them. We live in the middle of nowhere, so it's kinda pointless to put up a big display here.

  36. From what I understand this might be the only 3020 built in this configuration hence the price. Powershift with the hydraulic front wheel drive and gas engine.

  37. When I went to page 1 to see the aforementioned cover girl Cassie, I also ran across your big beautiful girl Nicky as a 15 mo old. Looks like she has put some gray on her muzzle since 2019. Time goes by way too fast.

  40. A friend of mine gave me a 50lb can of 7018 (DC) rods that had been on his service truck for years. They have never been "properly" stored. When I have a project where it makes sense to use them, I'll put a bunch on the welding table and flame them with the acetylene torch until they are mostly white again. Then wire brush the rust off the uncovered end and start using them. (🔥 flame suit on 🔥)

  44. Make it cheap and sell it expensive. Just get it out the door and then have the customer totally rework it after almost no use. Typical.

  45. Well you remember the root rake I installed a couple of weeks ago. I got a call Monday, we got a problem with the root rake. Pic #2&3 is what greeted me Tuesday morning when I showed up. So I broke out the torch and air arc. 90% of the welds I gouged out were full of porosity, One tooth had broke off and they found it, it only had about 2" of weld holding the rest were cold lapped. Pic #4 is where I am at now.
