  1. Man ,I wish they were closer to home, I would be in trouble. Don't let them get scrapped.
  2. Where and what models?
  3. If you have any Amish or other groups similar around, take it to an auction they will attend. They skyrocket prices of old equipment like that around here. It's a nice piece. Good luck.

    Two IH parts counter guys said that this was the best tractor IH built. Both owned them and farmed with them for years. If it runs good, I wouldn't be afraid of it. Good luck.
  5. The only way to know what dealer sold a tractor would be a dealer decal on it, knowledge from the original owner knowing the history, or possibly the owners manuel with a dealer name on it. I had a super h i bought and got the original owner's manuel with the receipt from the dealer. I also have seen a receipt book with models, serial numbers, buyers names, and prices from a old Missouri dealer. You have to research., you never know what you'll find.
  6. The original owner might have modified it for visual reasons. It might be one of they built before getting the factory equipment to the line to fill an order. Could be a lot of things considering it's age. Isn't there a serial number on the block? Did the LP and gas engines share the same block serial numbers? A friend up the road bought an Oliver LP tractor that had a different tank set up that turned out to be built that way from the factory. Might be worth checking out with the archives.
  7. Was the 91 series the last of any model IH built to use a gas start diesel? Or did some bigger or smaller crawlers continue using gas start diesel engines later than the 91 series production run?

    Re-ring?

    I agree, work them and get them warmed up. I had a cub and a 600 that both had stuck rings from sitting. I got each running and drove them around. Got them good and warm. While driving them you could tell a power change. They started with no problem after that. The 600 I drove on a 10 mile drive from one farm to another. It would almost need geared down to pull a hill. Midway there, it came to life. Had plenty of power after that. The cub had sit in a barn nearly 15 years. The 600 ,I'm not sure. I have had others I wasn't so lucky. But they generally had other issues. I wou
  9. Wonder how many different grader manufacturers used international power?
  10. I imagine when rubber was available after the war effort, there was probably a great demand for the tire industry catching up on tires for the automotive and farm applications. Rubber shift knobs were probably made when material was available to make them. Cost and supply would probably explain the on and off use of rubber shift knobs after the war. This just purely a guess on my part.
  11. Nearly all the less than truckload carriers charge a California compliance charge to anything going to or coming from there. Basically a "tax " on the people dealing with that state. It's to help offset costs added to the carriers hauling to and from that state by their goofy laws.
  12. No bodies found yet, but all surrounding county sheriff's offices,highway patrol, conservation agents, and others helping look for clues on the farm.
  13. Nice tractors. I always loved driving the f series tractors.
  14. Does the serial tag have an A on it? Probably an all fuel/ distillate tractor.
