  1. Thank You Dennis . I have been approached by I.H. Historical to speak about my restorations . I'll be meeting the man at RPRU in Ohio if all goes well . God Willing. April 22-23-24/22 it will be one of the features at Calif Antique Farm Equipment Show . I am pretty excited about that. Again Thank You . 560Dennis. Tony
  2. 4/7/22 more odds and ends ! Finally decided on a stainless mirrors . lic frame , I prefer the original Allied frame in back and this nice smooth one in front . yes or no on the emblem for mud flaps ???? tony
  3. Thank you Sir ! my sentiments were what you described ; the forgotten farm repair / welder / blacksmith and also IH trucks are pretty rough and forgotten by now and I am trying to bring as much respect back to an IH truck as there is for Chev, Ford , Dodge at shows etc . I have noticed an uptick in IH pickup interest as of lately , however ,most are rock climbers and left patina . I am old school and choose to go another way trying to make a nice show room oldie . this truck should out live me now , so hope it will continue to make IH light line trucks proud many years into the future thanks again , tony
  4. Prayers for the **** those people are induring Tony
  5. Yes it will. We revamped it for easy removal and instillation but kept original lift. Tony
  6. Thank You ! At this point she may just pretend to work ! lol i want to actually do some trailer pulling with her. ! I think she is going to be user friendly Tony
  7. 4/1/22 Oh happy days ! the propane tank mount arrived from chrome shop ! It’s wrapped in tissue . the exhaust system will be ready for pickup on Monday . Not much more to go ! Till we see if it runs and drives ! Lol tony
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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

  16. 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
  17. 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” !
