  1. I'm getting ready to split my 1468. The frame rails do not have any bolt holes to secure splitting jacks. My IH manual says to attach adapter plates FES 142-2 to the frame rails. Does anyone have photos they could share of how they fabricated brackets to attach to the frame rails, or what FES 142-2 adapter plates look like. (the photos in my manual are to dark to see detail) I am sure I can fabricate something, but sometimes it helps to see other good ideas. Thanks.
  2. C I’m in Terre Haute Indiana. Let me know a price. My phone number is (812) 298-4482.
  3. I am looking for a muffler for a IH 1468. I have one good one. Thormure appears to be out of business, or at least the phone number doesnt work. Anyone have a lead on where to buy a muffler? An 806 Muffler is close, but I am looking for something that is factory correct. I am willing to spend the money to have one custom built.
  4. I am thinking that I will swap the whole assembly shown in the photo. Carrier, pump and shaft. My only concern was if the pumps both produce the same pressure. You are correct on the bigger bearing. The coupler on the intermediate shaft is 15 spline, the end of the intermediate shaft is also 15 spline.
  5. I bought a dual speed PTO out of a 706 to replace my single 1,000 speed PTO unit. The problem I now have is that the PTO input shaft is a different size. The new PTO has a smaller 12 spline input shaft. The one I removed has a 15 spline input shaft. can I unbolt the pump and input shaft from my tractor and install it on the new unit, or do I need to buy a new PTO input drive shaft? Any help is appreciated, I’m not sure where to go from here.
  6. All it took to get it running were two new batteries. I changed all the fluids and filters and she cranked right up. Believe it or not, of the three tractors I have restored, this one is in excellent mechanical shape. The TA is good, engine starts without either and all the parts are there. The oil pan had a small crack around the drainplug, when I pulled the pan off to weld the crack, I noticed the cylinder walls still have cross hatching in them. The tractor has 4,300 original hours. When my uncle bought the tractor in the late 80's, it had just received a new engine. I don't know how many hours are on the engine, but my uncle was a bus driver and only farmed about 80 acres, so I am guessing 2,000.
  7. I am currently restoring a 1468 that I got from my uncle. I am currently rebuilding the front axle and then getting ready for paint. One Item I still need to find is the back piece of sheet metal in a 66 series fender. I am hoping to find someone that has a junk 66 series fender that would sell me just the back piece to weld into my fender. I know that from the factory it came as an assembly, but I have a great fender that is just missing that one piece. Photo with the yellow circle is the piece I am looking for. If you have one, my number is 812-298-4482 or email me at lgassert@garmong.net Thanks
  8. Fine, I will submit. You guys could have let me hope at least for a minute. I will admit, I am here to learn from your knowledge, so all advice so far is much appreciated. Now we are moving on to the unit needs to be replaced. Would 381512R91 be the correct part number I need to find from any of these models: 706 806 1206 826 1026 756 856 1256 1456 766 966 1066 1466 1566
  9. Alright guys, I am not convinced that this is not the original PTO. I will get some more info tonight when I get to the shop, but I may have provided bad data by assuming up position is on and down position is off (because it is currently spinning in both positions currently). I just went through every photo of 1468 PTOs that I could find and I noticed a majority of them appear to have an external spring next to the linkage bracket that holds the PTO in the down position. All of the photos below are from 'auction result' websites. All photos are from 1468s. This spring may be the missing component, or it may be the wrong PTO....stay tuned.

  11. That is the conclusion I came to last night. I will go back with the original handle and linkage. When I get back to the shop tonight I will check the pto to see if it will turn by hand and check the pressures on it. I have a rebuild kit in the shop, so it will likely be coming apart.
  12. Thanks Dan, The unit currently in the tractor is a single 1000 speed PTO. The linkage you can see in the photo, I just bought and put on the tractor trying to figure it out. The tractor originally came with a cab and had a PTO handle on the left side of the seat with linkage connected directly to the spool valve.
  13. The lever is spring loaded to stay up, while running if you push down on the valve it will engage and stay down.
  14. So I just started it up and checked it, you are correct that while running it will hold itself down, however, the PTO spins in both positions, up and down. Does this mean I need to rebuild something or adjust pressure?
  15. Thanks snoshoe. That’s what I needed to know.
