  1. Here's some whole tractor shots. After doing some measuring, all the brands are about 0.5" the same in diameter for this size. The only thing I can guess is the previous tires (15+ years old) were extra tall for some reason. I guess it doesn't look terrible. I was just hoping that some fresh tires would give it a boost. Next time, I'll upgrade hubs and wheels to something bigger. Thanks for the input.
  2. I ordered some new tires for my NF 706 and ordered the same size that was on there 6.50-16s. But when I picked up the new ones and put them on the tractor, they seem too narrow and too small, even compared to the ones I replaced of the same size. What the biggest/widest/best looking tire for these factory rims? I just want the tractor to look right and the tires not look 'stressed'.
  3. OK - that makes sense. This is the first TA model I've had. The 806s and 1466 I have are all TA delete models.
  4. Are you saying it should roll when the engine isn't running? The manual says clutch adjustment is a two person job as you need someone to depress the clutch while measuring/ adjusting.
  5. I've put about 30 hours on the '67 706D since I bought in March and I love it! That 310 is a fast starting, sweet sounding fuel sipper. I haven't had an issue with it at all, but I do think I need to make some adjustments to the Clutch & TA. The shift linkage is tighter than any '06 tractor I've driven in the past and the parking brake inspires confidence. However, I've noticed that if I leave the tractor is gear, even 1rst (L1), it will roll on an incline. I park it on a flat surface with parking brake on, and bush hog lowered so it's not an issue. However, I know it shouldn't do that. ****, we used to park our 806s on a hill so we could get them to start as the batteries/starters were dead all the time. Additionally, the clutch seems to engage twice - meaning it engages some, but then a little more as you fully release the pedal. Lastly, as the tractor warms up, I get the oil light on when the clutch is depressed which I know is the dump valve. Are all these issues adjustment related or are there other things going on? I've got the manual and procedure for the adjustment, just haven't haven't been able to get someone else's schedule to align with mine yet to get it done, as it's a 2 person job. Pic for attention. Thanks for the help!
  6. Ha - it is a beast! https://vimeo.com/228678020
  7. I got the 1466 fired up today - new batteries, fresh diesel, and crossed fingers. It runs great, but has sprouted some serious diesel and hydraulic leaks - I'll have to work on those ASAP.
  8. Yea, rare and expensive... Those tires are $2,500.00/ea apparently.
  9. Hey all - not a great picture, but here is the 1466:
  10. Honestly Mark, I don't have much of a use for them, but they were a big part of my childhood. They'll just be a hobby for me, but I may end of making hay or something with them.
  11. The '67 806 has a very straight sheet metal, but the engine is weak and the clutch is just about out - I could barely get it to go up a hill in 1st gear (1st, not 5th). Because it'll barely move, I think I'm going to work on it first. I'm going to try and get the 1466 fired up soon too. The 1466 was completely restored in the mid-90's (still 20 years ago) so it's not a big deal. We didn't use it much because it was just too big for dairy work. We only disced or pulled a silage chopper with it. I was going through some old stuff and found this too - an 806 owner's manual from 1967. I'd forgotten, but I found this on eBay several years ago (and paid big bucks for it) as a Christmas gift for dad:
  12. Happy 4th weekend everyone - Here's the 1967 806 - I got it fired up today!
  13. They were weak when parked - the 806s alternated front-end loader duty for many years. Luckily, none of these have TAs.
  14. Hello everyone - Greetings from Charlotte, NC. Unfortunately, my father passed away recently (he was 58) and I'm left with three Internationals: 1966 806D (pictured), 1967 806D, 1974 1466 These tractors were never show ponies - always work horses on a dairy. He bought the '66 806 before I was born (I'm 29). Because of this, they're all in need of a good amount of work - particularly the 806s, they both need a new clutch. I don't want to sell the tractors - I'd like to keep them and restore as I find time & money. Although I spent the first 20 years of my life milking cows, stacking hay, and cutting silage - I stepped away from that after college and now work in engineering. It's safe to say that these old tractors inspired my fascination with engineering and mechanical stuff. My first goal is to get them all running - some have been sitting for a few years, but were all running when parked. The '66 806 just required a new battery and a shot of ether to fire right up. I suspect the others will be the same. This will take years of work and tons of money, but hopefully it'll be worth it in the end. I'm sure I'll need the help and support of this community. Pictures of the other tractors to come shortly. Thanks, -Chad
