  1. Just a little Tid bit of history below on my 4 most recent pieces of treasure I've found (Some may have seen them on Facebook). Just as the title says I got a call from a local Farm equipment dealer. He was taking care of a Widow ladies Husband IH collection. He was an avid IH collector as well as a restorer of them from tools to tractors. The last piece he restored was believed to be the 10-20 below but, it was easier to take his Restored F20 to shows at his age so it sat in an old silo for many years. I picked up the 10-20 First (just found the Carb for it in his garage) i hope to have it up and going next week. The F12, F14 and F20 below were on his list to fix but, he never got to fix them. She made a point that only other collectors were aloud to even see these items or have a chance to buy them. I plan on getting each and every one up and going for her sake and his memory. She said I "Had the same ear to ear grin as her husband when he drug these old rust piles home and it means the world to her to see them go to a fellow Collector." I';m not sure if others are this way but, That right there gives me the fuel to keep going. So i hope i can look to y'all for advice cause i can tell I'm gonna need it. :D I also hope to come up with the Cash to get his Restored F20 soon. I'll be sure to post my progress on here as time goes by...
  2. Yes The Radiator is a 3 hole (just don't have it pictured yet), hood is just one that was laying around he put on it years ago. The metal fuel line for the small hood tank is still there and the block number matches the serial number Tag show's it as an F14. Yes both are duel fuel's.
  3. So tomorrow I go to pick up a 1936 Farmall F12 and a 1939 Farmall F14. Not sure which one I'll try to get going first probably the F14... The F12 is nearly complete minus Carb and Magneto(which may be in the Garage somewhere). Stuck from sitting for so long but, it has been keep inside and the gas tank looks new on inside from a quick look. The F14 has the rear steel (need Front steel now) just gotta find the Magneto. It has front shutter's but, only one fuel tank am i missing one(was there small one's cut in the hood?) It also has some kind of rear lift (Hydraulic i assume for implement's). Also what is the second gauge for on the side the oil is on the other side. Some of the other part's are not on it but, are in a pile near it. Will need some help and info with these babies....these are a new era...err ....area for me ...
  4. I was wondering if the block had been sleeved or not myself. Since they went .040 wasn't sure if you'd have to sleeve it or not. Didn't get to check much had to leave for work early. I'll have to check tomorrow And thanks for the info on the Piston's they looked different from my Super A , Farmall C and Super C piston's.
  5. Well had to pull the Head off to get the valve unstuck look's to have been stuck for a while. Gonna clean the head up, put in a few new/used push rod's and try it again tomorrow. Also can anyone identify the piston's Are these regular IH piston's or aftermarket? It says there .040 over. Z-16 .040 388557-R2 I'm assuming it has been rebuilt at one time and they bored it .040 over. Would they now have sleeve's by boring that far? Thanks for the info wish me luck
  6. Need some help/info Since IH liked to start serial #'s with 501 Would that make this one the 150th one built would love to know the year, month, day it was built etc... Finally got the Sprayer running had a weird noise out exhaust and was belching smoke. Took the Valve cover off to find an exhaust valve stuck 3/4 down. I haven't had any luck popping the valve up. Looks like the head will have to come off. The IH dealer is no help as the workers are younger then me and just stare when i say IH 780 Hi-Clear Sprayer. What tractor would use the same C-146 they might be able to help with that info. I belive a 444 had the C-146 correct? Would a head gasket kit for a 444 work on this motor? thanks for the help
  7. I bought my 656 gas about 3 years ago i use it with my 8ft Bush hog, hay work, plow, disk, etc.. it could use a few more RPM's but, it's my #2 favorite tractor (Behind my Ford 8000). I love the 263 gas motor reliable, stout, mine's easy on gas. My 560 has a 282D that i absolutely hate if i had the time to swap it with a 263 gas i'd do it in a heart beat! Then send the 282 to the scrap yard where it belong's. just my 2 cent's i think you'll enjoy it good luck
  8. Update: So i got her home and safely unloaded she is gonna need a lot of love and work. No better time to learn body work cause it needs plenty. Also ordered a owner's manual moment's ago finally found one. Can't wait to go to work on her but, i got a Super M with a Mounted NI corn picker that also need's some love it's hard to chose between them. Edit: also any help on finding out what year this was built? I added the Engine and Power takeoff Serial number's.
  9. Went to look her over real good. Its a IH 780 #651 built not sure what year that would fall under. Needs plenty of sheet metal work but, nothing I don't think i can't handle. He didn't have a battery but, say's it start's, run's and drives great but, has ZERO break's. Would I order brakes for a 140 since I've been told it has 140 part's from trans back. Thanks again y'all for all the help so far looks like i'll be here alot with question
  10. I gave them a call their gonna check there archive's to see if they have one. Thanks for the info
  11. Thanks for the pic's and info it does have the seat framing and suspension but no cushion. Gonna try to put a seat off a something like a 656 or up if it will fit.
  12. Howdy all I'm gonna be picking up what i believe is a IH 770 or a 780 Sprayer off my cousin. I plan on fixing it up to take to show's nothing Trophy winner just refurbished i guess you'd call it. I do have a few question to ask. I tried to search the forum and asked on some IH face book pages but, no really helpful info. He's gotta keep the carb for another tractor i have one for a Super C will it fit and run? Also any one have or know where to find an owners manual. I found one on Ebay but, its a CD i want paper back. Case IH parts website has no info on it. What type of seats did this use? I've googled it but, they all seem to have cheap boating seats stuck on them. So if anyone has one with some good pics I'd love to see them. Thanks for any help
  13. There's about a dozen or so older men that worked at the local IH dealerships. When they seen i put the picker on my Tractor they came by to look it over and said "to make sure to put good breaks on if i was gonna run the picker" they told me about the constant issues they dealt with come picking season. Most of the time the glued one's would come apart from the added weight of the picker and wagon or the riveted ones cut/groove the drum up. I assume the new stuff is better then back then of course but, i just wanted to get y'alls opinion on this topic. I believe I'm gonna go with the riveted one and do the tip's y'all have suggested
  14. Howdy all I searched the forum and google but, no luck. It's regarding my 52' Super M Project that need's some new brake's. (A little info) It has a New Idea Mounted Corn picker on it that will stay on it as long as i own it. I plan on using it to pick a little corn this year but, it will mostly be a Show, Parade, and tractor drive Tractor. My question is should i go with the Regular pads or the riveted pad's heard complaint's about both. Since it has the picker and I'll be pulling a wagon in parade's i want good breaks for sure. Thanks for any info
