    There's hope for all of us. I still have my round fender 110, have jd brush hog, cultivator and running gear but have an ih planter and plow. Each color has it's pros and cons, and a reason why we like that either family, a close dealer or excellent service. Just some friendly teasing on myself. 


    Reason why I have a lot of JD toys is because our Deere dealer had a lot of toys and we knew the manager pretty well. Of course that was before online shopping took over the market. The thing with me is I wasn’t born early enough to been in the era of IH as a sole company and my family doesn’t farm so while I was around Ag I didn’t have just IH around. But it’s what I got into and I thoroughly enjoy it.

    Are the videos on YouTube?

    No. The Five Millionth is on FarmingtonImplement DVD 8 and the 86 series one is on DVD 14.

    Farmington Implement has the 86 Series introduction video narrated by Orion Samuelson. When you watch that video pay close attention because you'll see two products introduced a year later lurking in the background while Orion is warbling about the tractors; a 730 or 830 forage harvester and more importantly an Axial-Flow combine. Small wonder it was a favorite introduction among the dealer community.

    I was a random bystander to a conversation at the dealer that fall when a customer had some issue with his combine and he was told to just hang on because a big change was coming soon, or some such.

    I’m going to have to watch that film again because I don’t recall seeing those. Interesting the Axial-Flow is in there since it was so secretive and it was a little more than a year when they would get introduced.

  3. Since the Five Millionth tractor rolled off the line at Farmall Plant. February 1st, 1974 at 9am. Would have been pretty neat to have been there. The last photo is at Chicago’s McCormick Place for the introduction of the 86 Series tractors on August 26th, 1976. That’s where the 13 IH dealers from Montana bought the tractor. When only a handful of the original dealers that bought it remained by the mid-1990’s, they donated the 5 Millionth tractor to the Ft. Benton Ag Museum in Ft. Benton, Montana where the 5 Millionth remains today. The IH Photographic Center made a film from the Five Millionth Ceremony in 1974 and a film of the 86 Series introduction which was narrated by Orion Samuelson.

    I’ve posted a few pictures of my W-6 on RPM but not on your thread.  Here’s my threshing day photo from this summer. The landlord combined my field of oats before we did his barley the next day.


    I used the W-6 to pull the grain wagon. I’d much rather combine oats then barley, barley dust is itchy!!

    Is that a Gleaner A? Nice picture!

    And OBG, congratulations on 1000 pages. I have not contributed or read this thread near as much as some but I know you have a wealth of knowledge!

    Another good Nebraska station is 103.9 the Legend out of Grand Island.  It has an app as well 

    I really like 98.7 The Big Boy out of Sidney. There is another one around Ogallala named The Lake I think. They play 70’s and 80’s rock/pop. It’s a good station. 

  6. DJ’s used to have more freedom what they could play on the radio. Nowdays it’s more programmed by groups what will be played…. as I’ve heard it said. 

    If I don’t like what is on the radio and Bluetooth isn’t working, I just turn it to a CD I have in…… which not all vehicles have anymore.

    Not surprising.

    Have a buddy about half my age who was not familiar with anything '80s Top40 for Country. He had just started getting into records & I took him a handful of Alabama & Oak Ridge Boys LPs, not thinking he'd really enjoy them. Wasn't what he normally listened to. He thought it was excellent! So, we worked out a deal & he ended up with a majority of my old country records & I gained enough shelf space to empty out the rest of my crates.


    In 2017 I got my 1992 GMC as my first vehicle. When I got it the radio did’t work and for a little while I just played music on my phone until I got a new radio. Played a lot of 80’s country and thats what made me really go deeper into that genre. I had always been around it but that was the turning point.

    Matt Dillon, the hero who showed up after the fight was over 😂

    Show aired for 20 years……. with it being the longest running western tv show, by a decent margin, someone did something right to keep the cameras rolling that long.

    Damn.  Missed you again. For sure let me know next time you're through so you can swing by the shop or something

    I went by mid afternoon. It was so cold I figured I’d wait until it was warmer…… hopefully.

  10. Runner, I drove through your area yesterday going back to college. We’ll have to meet up on my way back through. Hopefully it’s warmer then!

    Tell him to post more. I'll post some too & we can tank the eBay market!!!!!

    Woo Hoo!!!!


    I think he’s posted every Ag Buyers Guide from 1960 to 1984. I refer to them sometimes. It’s nice someone posted them because not everyone can get a hold of a certain copy. 

  12. I believe @DirtBoyz07 delivered them new when he worked at his local dealer in Elkader, Iowa. I know he did the 86’s new but by the time the 88’s came around he also started painted tractors there at the shop…… as I recall from his stories.

    Was ordered new by Farnen Implement (Allis Chalmers dealer) in Salisbury Missouri. Was then sold in 1996 on the closeout sale when the Farnen went out of business. Previous owner to me bought it there, then used it as their first service truck for a while. 

    I'm not an Allis guy, but can appreciate its history, and will probably have the doors re-lettered eventually. 


    That’s what I was speculating. Neat history for sure.

    In between other projects this summer I picked up this 72 1310 in April. Worked on it pretty hard in July and August. 

    My goal was to take it back "home" to show the family I bought it from and take it to their hometown steam and tractor show. 

    I made it, was able to putz around the grounds.

    Found a different used engine to put in it. Resealed some things. New tires on the front. Different seat. Got the lights working. 

    Still needs some work yet. Waiting on a radiator to be built for it. Finish the brakes. And either do a rear axle swap, or fix the differential. 








    What is the story with the AC stickers on the pickup? Good on you for saving that nice 1310!

    It's not really for prototypes it's just a tractor they had sitting around at Hinsdale that was pressed into service to accommodate printing schedules for the first tractors coming off the line at Rock Island. It's cool that it's a mock up we never knew existed, like the 1206 with the air stack on the opposite side of the hood that was used in the introductory literature pics.

    Another example is the 1256 on the cover of the Spring 1968 Buyers Guide. I can’t remember all the differences but it had 06 style shifters.

  16. I would say that is the same non-adjustable front axle they used on previous 56 and 06 series Standard and Wheatland tractors. However on the right side of the tractor behind the axle right under the frame rail would be a hydraulic cylinder used for steering. Interesting I don’t see this 1466 equipped with one while it has the non-adjustable front axle. 

    This page is out of the International 766, 966, 1066, and 1466 Tractors brochure dated May 1971. This 1466 has rounded fenders but an adjustable front axle. Notice also it has the regular four bar grill and the model decal has FARMALL under 1466. Where it’s the opposite from the 1466 in the  OP. It also appears this 1466 with the round fenders has a drawbar where the one in the OP appears to have a 3pt.
    Notice also the description mentions platform extensions and notes an adjustable front axle but not a non-adjustable one.

    I looked at one of those before I bought the hammer mill. Well, it was a Letz but still a similar machine. Decided I'd rather have the hammer mill for mixing chicken feed. Your Cub ought to pull that grinder just fine, have seen them belted to everything from Cubs to SMD's, they don't take a lot of power to run. I'd like to see it in action once you get it restored.


    I’m sure I will have a post here when I start the process. I’m gonna have to do some research to get a manual when I take things apart. It’s probably not to bad without a manual but it may be good to have something like that on hand.

    Tinkered a bit with the little hammer mill today, and got it put away in its shed.


    It's a Montgomery Ward model G, tiniest hammer mill I've ever seen. 


    I can't find any kind of information on it, so if anyone knows about them, please let me know! It's perfect for the Cub though, and makes nice chops. I tinkered with it a bit today too, and have narrowed my loss of power/smothering out down to the carb. It's been rebuilt twice in the last year, so now I think I'll try one of those $25 ebay carbs and see if that helps. 


    Don’t know anything about them. I’ve got a McCormick-Deering Type D feed grinder that I think should work with the Cub. Don’t know anything about the grinder really, my plan is to restore it.

    I guess I don’t have a pic of it by itself. Belt pulley is hiding behind the hopper. I do know they were painted cream for the stand, blue on the cast pieces (or center section), then the hopper was red.
