  1. 656 wide front

    I have an early 656 with a wide front. The "ball" on the rear of the yoke going from the axle back to the mount under the engine is needing to be replaced. Because of the early style, I can't just replace the ball, I need to replace the entire yoke. Anyone done this in the past? What am I up against??
  2. 184 & 284

    its a challenge to say the least. Some are small enough they fit on my lap.
  3. 284 4x4 Diesel with Loader (pics)

    I own a 284 with the Mazda gas engine. I'm kind of afraid to use it too much because I think parts are hard to come by. Do you know of a good parts source that I'm not aware of? Don't need anything as everything is working fine, but would be a "piece of mind" to know where to get parts if needed.
  4. 184 & 284

    I bought a 284 gas couple years back because it was just to good/cool to pass up. I don't use it much because it appears parts are very rare. I use it mainly for dragging the yard and giving the grandkids a ride. The Mazda engine purrs like a kitten and everything works on it. Paint is pretty good on it, but it has places where it has peeled/chipped off and I may repaint it at some point. The 184 is owned by a friend of mine that I used to work for at a former IH dealership. I believe it is a 1981 model and was used to mow the grass at the dealership. He also has a tiller attachment for it as well. I am hoping when the time comes for him to sell it, I'll have first dibs. He built the cab himself. Very talented person and consider it a privilege to know him. Had a chance to get a side by side picture the other day and thought I would share.
  5. Tractor canopy

    I've been thinking I would like to add a canopy to the 656 I'm working on. Does adding a canopy make it that much noisier in the seat??? If that's the case, I may rethink my idea of adding the canopy. Is it louder than a some of the older style cabs???
  6. 656 wide front

    I have an early model 656 that originally had a narrow front. Some years later the narrow front was swapped out for an IH wide front. The pivot ball on the rear of the stay rod assembly is showing some wear. I ordered a replacement ball which came with a threaded end. The one on mine the ball appears to have been riveted/flanged on the end to keep it tight. I just looked at the price of a new stay rod assembly from CIH and I'm hoping someone on here has come up with a means of "fixing" rather than replacing. Any ideas out there??? thanks

  9. Year-A-Round Cab

    I currently have a Year Round tractor cab that I removed from a 656 I am restoring. The cab was new when it was installed back in 1966. I'm wondering if there is any interest out the for a cab like this and if so, does anyone care to comment on what it would be worth? All the windows are there, but half of them are cracked. I think this cab is model specific because the tin work that wraps around the back behind the seat is made to fit the 656 it came off, not bolt in panels to allow the cab to fit other models. (Could fit 666 & 686 Hydro 70 row crop tractors) I have no use for it and don't want to scrap something if someone can use it. Thank you
