  1. There are a lot of carbs out there that don't have the governor on it, I would just find a different one. I may have a couple of rebuildable non-governor ones laying around.
  2. I guess you will see that happen when it is an artist's rendering of the real thing. Harvest rolling right along here so I guess I will post an IH 93 combine ad from the 1964 buyer's guide. It's funny how they show a 91 with 93 badging. The rear axle and tiller handles give it away. I guess it's proof that the advertising dept didn't always know what they looking at, just assigned to produce an add.
  3. And when I was a kid thats the only kind of steering I knew. Thats why power steering seemed like a real luxury. Now here is my favourite kind of snow removal machine. At least I think I'd like it, never having operated one. A 1937 SnoGo mounted on a D50 IH truck. It's cool to see an add for one of these. My grandfather had one of these when I was growing up and used it on the runway. Did International trucks make their own 4wd chassis? His was a 46 Ford cab and flathead V8, but it was on a Marmon-Herrington 4wd chassis. MH supplied both front and rear axle drives. It would REALLY blow snow! The spout would only pivot from left to right. It had the standard Ford 4 speed truck trans, but then went into a 4 speed aux. reduction box. With both boxes in first you could barely see the thing move. The truck engine strictly drove the chassis and the rear engine only drove the blower. His was powered by a 455ci 6 cyl Continental with a holley 2bbl down draft carb. It was governed at 2400 and was 175 hp, according to the tag. It looked like a stationary engine bolted to a truck frame. It drove the blower with 9 matched V-belts. It was really quite the machine to operate and used LOTS and LOTS of gas. After he passed it was sold to the Torchport Airport in East Port, MI and as far as I know they are still using it.
  4. How far are you from Gordon Behrenwald's farm?
