  1. Words from a song "I hate to see you leave but I love to watch you walk away", or something like that.
  2. Good man! Knew a lot of IH history.

    Grilles A-B-C

    Cut out on the B, steering arm is different. An A grille will not work on a B and vice versa.
  4. I'm 73 and it doesn't get any better. Add cataracts and one operation that is questionable ,I can assure you it does not get better However a friend of min had two cataract surgeries and both were exceedingly well and can now see without the help of glasses. I now am afraid of the second cataract surgery. Old age is a challenge and not for sissies!
  5. Stay off the lousy news shows for you own sanity. They are inciting this action.
  6. Local farm supply store here sold over $2500 of ammunition this Tuesday mostly 9mm and .223.
  7. Thank you all for the information!
  8. What all did I H make at the Stockton Works? I assume most of the items were for the California market?
  9. redturbo, Thank you for the pictures of the 350 orchard. I have seen the pictures of the other models but not the 00 or 50 series. Thanks again! Bud
  10. I have seen the unstyled model orchard tractors, letter series, and 460 style and 504 style series but I have never seen the 00 or 50 series. Did IH make orchard tractors for those series,? I would think so but have never seen pictures of them. Just curious.
  11. J.D. I'm sorry, I was referring to the president of Navistar, the guy that championed the non def engines. Yes McCardell came from Xerox, I don't know where Hayford, the second in line came from at IH.
  12. Am I wrong but I remember somewhere that he came from freightshaker. Not a conspiracy theorist but I seem to have heard that.
  13. I have sent several batteries in to have them reworked. They worked for awhile but they are definitely not like a new one!
  14. I have used Milwaukee for the past 45 years. I am really impressed with the 12 and 18 volt machines! The only complaint I would have is their phase out of the 26 volt and previous 18 volt machines. We still have several of the old 18 volt machines and the batteries are weak. I don't want to throw them away but they too are obsolete. I saw a video where someone took a few parts and made an adapter to use the new 18 volt batteries.
  15. I talked to a friend that owns a machine shop and we are going to try to balance the flywheel. I'm looking for options just in case. The wooden XL is hard to come by.
  16. Does anyone know where I might find a flywheel and a n original crank for an International XL two hole corn sheller? The crank I have seems to have been forged by a blacksmith and the flywheel is warped, I don't know if it can be straightened out
  17. International Harvester refrigeration products were made at the IH factory in Evansville, Indiana.
  18. I guess the one statement that I remember and one that I do not care for, especially in today's climate of globalism was something like " we are experiencing a new world order". His family definitely does like President Trump, his sniffling son Jeb, especially. I do think he was an honorable man but misguided on globalism. His family including W. seem to be of the same cloth as obama when it comes to America First. You can not take away his being in charge of the success of the first Gulf war! Just my thoughts.
  19. I always thought it meant a diesel engine.
  20. Don't you just love it when greenies troll an IH site after all they get their feeling hurt easily.

    My Grandfather's IH dealership also sold Buick automobiles.
  22. Baker Implement Company stores in Cape Girardeau and Portageville Missouri locations are the old IH Prototye buildings. the Cape Girardeau store has been added on to over the years but you can still make out the style. There are remnant of Prototype stores north of Chester Illinois on route 3 and also in beautiful down town Cairo, Illinois again on the north side.
  23. I like these "then and now" type photos and have tried to do a few of my own on the farm. This one shows the old barn. 1944 with my two grandfathers and great uncle in the top of the photo. Lower is myself and two nephews as it appeared in 2004. I ran across several pictures of my granfathers family's threshing machines. One series shows them in a shed in the'40s or ;50s another series shows them in 1969 with the shed gone, out in the open. I took several pictures a few years ago showing the renmnants rusting in the weeds; I remember seeing these machines when I was a small boy visiting my great grandmother. I do like seeing the pictures of the steamers in previous threads did anyone use A.D.Baker engines out west? My granfather had one, not sure of the size as did my great grandfather. Evidently they had several other brands also as a Gaar-Scott blew up and I have puictures of that, wish I could find a way to post them.
  24. Why do I have to register each time I want to reply or start a new topic?
