  1. 4/1/22 Finally remembered to get you the pictures ! The one above post pictures is how I received it and what it looked like #200 blade fast hitch behind my 300u BTW it was pretty rusty when I bought it so I repaired it and had it powder coated for me at time it was quicker and easier . tony
  2. Thanks , we all had those kind of hitches in the day , no one used ball hitches , top lip pivoted to make it easy to hook up single or double lip hitch ! I had 40 cotton trailers in the day and they were both kinds !lol not to mention all the fertilizer tenders we pulled around tony
  3. NEED TO GET THESE BACK ! The exhaust system back from powder coat. the propane mount back from chrome fuel to it and dial in . I HOPE THATS IT , I am sure there are more odds and ends tony
  4. 3/30/22 the lift is installed , rear lic plate and lite , and I believe I will go with this mirror . I will run the lift in level position . tony
  5. Yes you can ! I restored a 200 blade around 2014-15-16 and posted it on this forum , I am not adapt at finding old post on here maybe someone can help us out. My recommendation is if you have a old one around that you can still make out decals , take pictures try to get dimensions . Out hear I have a Store called" Fast signs" and they will make them to your specifications. When I come across the blades pictures I will forward to you. Tony

  9. 3/22/22 Guys , I been wrestling with steering wheels ! wanted original rebuilt but the off set creates a problem with room for driver being we have a new column . this what we have come up with. My alternate choice. It was the center hub that sold me so far ! tony
  10. Thank you ! it’s been a long haul exciting most times then frustrating with hurry up and wait . Lol I learned a lot about me on these trucks , I HAVE A SICKNESS CALLED ; “Being we are this far let’s do” ! Lol it’s about like other bad habits , it drains the pocket book along with adding time to restoration which leads to straining the patients lol tony
  11. Yes sir ! Thank you ! I can’t wait to see tank and lift on it tony

  14. Thank you Bill , I agree , I decided on the square one but they say it will not work on base to door . so I am searching , hard to find this old school stuff we took for granted thanks for input tony
  15. Thank You Sir ! Very kind of you. At this point I am counting hours till done . Yet it seems forever ! Tony
  16. I have old off the blue book stuff through Hagarity for stated value. Keep reciepts ,pictures or record of purchase price, to prove your value In this case his picture of purchase and reciepy of payment at auction ,it establishes the value on that day. Tony
  17. Happy Birthday Bitty ! Hope it’s a great day ! tony
  18. In my perspective , I like seeing prices climb gradually , it gives our love of these old girls a value ,and encouragement to maintain them , at least it takes away the stigma of them being just junk . over the years I have restored or bought old IH models that impacted my life growing up and reminder of my Dad and nieghbor’s who were loyal IH farmers . I would love to continue collecting but my age and body are telling me it’s time to clean and drive them instead of dismantling and trying to get them back together . Lol . and a little thing call “Room” my sheds are pretty full . as I enjoy my old girls and insure them , shelter them , provide maintence it’s nice to know that perhaps when I am gone someone will appreciate their value and they will not go to the kill shelter . my big problem is I fall in love with them and have no idea what value it would take to part with one . Having said all this my heart still pounds for a 1466 Black stripe , who knows might still have one more in me . Lol tony
  19. Happy Belated Birthday Sandhiller ! Hope it was great ! tony
  20. Happy Birthday Dale and Twostepin Hope it was a great day and wishes for many ! tony
  21. Oh Yes ! the two items that will keep Herbie , Herbie , is the propane tank and the lift ! They are being painted . the four identifiers imho is the head Rack , propane tank , lift , back of bed and his hitch style all combine into Herbs work . tony
  22. 3/15/22 creeping to the finish line ! more progress pictures! Metal bed top is at powder coating ( black) Steering wheel is fill in for now have not settled on one . still trying to find the proper mirrors tank still at painter , mounting still at chrome shop, exhaust system being Cermacoted. tony
  23. Good one ! Twostepn2001 ! I ask Carol why Las Vegas , Bay Area , LA , always look so much better and beautiful in small rear view mirror then they do in the big front view windshield ? she says my mind set , but I think it’s so much more then that !lol perhaps much better quality glass in small rear view mirror ! Lol tony
  24. I agree BJ these mirrors would do the job well ! However,they are in rough shape and you cannot believe the damage to doors from years of hanging there. After all the welding and door repair hate to have something big again. Vibrating on repaired area everytime open or close the door. At this point I am leaning to the small square mirrors in pictures above. Thank you for your thoughts B.J. Tony
