  1. Thank you for the info @lorenzo. I for one knew what it was although I firmly believe if my generation and the one before me were like previous generations of either talking in person or a phone call to communicate, we would be far better off in many ways.
  2. This is my phone screensaver. June 2020 at Farmall Land. I have a 966 Hydro and a 1466 all original from the 1970’s. (I don’t think they were repainted). Got them both from Girard Auction. This is one of my favorite brochures. Printed in May 1971. Only a 966 Hydro on the front but it is such a neat piece. If I wasn’t 7 hours away from home I’d get an inside photo of a 966. Ever since I got in to IH stuff in around 2011, the 66 series has always been my favorite.
  3. Wheat harvest this year was notorious for mechanical issues for not only us but others I’ve talked too. Just happens every once in a while I guess from my observations. Best of luck with your machine during harvest.
  4. Wow that looks great! Awesome job!!
  5. Dad and I help a friend with wheat harvest and he has a 2588 and a 7130. There are several differences. Dad went from the 25 to the 71 and likes it. I run the 25. Both are good machines. Having met SDman at RPRU this summer and reading about his knowledge here on the forum in past years I’d say he’s a great resource for help on running Axial-Flow machines if you have one. A stand up guy with a lot of knowledge!
  6. Four lanes at 75 in Texas is a dream. Truckers, thank you for all you do! I am amazed by all the trucks running on 287 between Amarillo, Texas and Kit Carson, Colorado on my way to and from home and college.
  7. Thank you for the kind words, means a lot.
  8. Northeast corner. We are about an hour and a half northeast of Greeley and about 45 minutes south of Kimball.
  9. I was quite surprised mine made it that far. Having the tailgate down made a huge difference. It was the first time trying to go that far. I believe its got a 28-30 gallon tank. I think I have my mower running pretty good (they do mow great) but I think adjusting the carb will make it run better.
  10. That is so neat! And I don’t plan on getting rid of mine either.
  11. Of these machines. My 1992 GMC 1500 and my great grandpa’s 1973/1974 International 3323 push mower. This was my first vehicle and now it takes me to college. Sure it’s had it’s issues over the years but I get them fixed and the pickup has served me well. Close to 232,500 miles. Had a used engine put in a year and a half ago and I’ve put 12,000 on it. “Phantom 392” was sold in my home town on October 20th, 1992. Today I drove back home for the weekend from West Texas A&M, a seven hour trip. Fueled up between Canyon and Amarillo, TX, dropped the tailgate and I made it all the way home with about a 1/8th tank left. My great grandpas mower was bought new from the IH dealer about 30 minutes away. Got it running last summer after sitting over four decades. I enjoy running it and am blessed I got to do it in his honor.
  12. Yes Max is a great guy! Met him at RRPU in June. Watched him a lot on This Week In Agribusiness! I love your tractors, you’ve done such a great job restoring them. Looks like it was a great drive!
  13. I saw a number on facebook. Seemed like it was 225 but don’t quote me.
  14. I like the 615 that’s for sale. There’s lots of great machinery at that show!
  15. Thats awesome! About the same experience for me when @DirtBoyz07 asked if I wanted to drive the 5388 at RPRU. I got a cup, shirt, and hat from IH Gear. Great people for sure!
  16. That certainly looks like a lot of people and buggies to be observing plowing that close.
  17. That’s why I had put custom built to. After looking at it I realized it does look slightly different cosmetically.
  18. I wish I was there!! Hopefully the next one. I’ve always thought it would be an awesome show to attend. Thank you for the pictures!
  19. Shop Mule I think. Unless it’s custom built.
  20. Got that at the same parts store in town where I got the NOS Lawnboy bag. Paid $25 for it in July 2019. Serial number tag from mine is gone but it is a 3331. They made them in 1975 and 76 from what I’ve found. Haven’t found a plastic top for it tho. The one I have is in the back.
  21. Looks great! Looking forward to seeing it completed!
  22. Well mine is a IH600E, not sure what would all be different.
  23. A bit of an update from working on great-grandpas 1973/74 International 3323 push mower with electric start: I visited the dealer building where he bought it new. My understanding is the IH dealer was in the older building in the forefront, then in later years as a dealer they moved to the blonde brick building. I think they are both connected a doorway tho. My plan is to take the mower to the dealer building and take a pic. Now that I’m back in Texas for college it won’t get done next summer. I found a fiberglass engine top!! It came from a guy in Indiana that I found at RPRU in June. After confirming he had one I started the mower on July 4th and mowed with it for a few minutes. Prior to this it hadn’t ran since last August. After I got the top and the mulch plate from Indiana I began making things look as best I could. The bagger chute and mulch plate were both green. I did not use Cub Cadet Yellow but just matched it up best I could. I cleaned the top a little and cleaned out the gas tank. Finally I cleaned the deck of the mower and used steel wool to clean up the chrome handles. So now it was looking pretty good. After all that I started it on July 27th…… and it didn’t start. After talking with a few experts of the Lawnboy’s on FB it was decided I had a fuel issue so I went through and cleaned the carb. Finally, on August 15th (stayed busy with other things) it started. I was so thrilled to have it run as a complete and presentable looking unit. It mows great and is pretty fun to run. I mulched a little with it and filled a full bag. It ran good but I’m not convinced my fuel issue is totally taken care of when starting. I’ll have to refine it. Anyhow here are pictures and videos.
