  1. I was the opposite. Started off green then went to red….. that’s been 13 years ago or so. I’m still only 22 (almost 23) tho.😂
  2. No. The Five Millionth is on FarmingtonImplement DVD 8 and the 86 series one is on DVD 14. 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.
  4. Wow even an IH Fan belt. Nice save once again!
  5. 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!
  6. Straight Forward Farming with Tony Reed and Nick McCormick.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Dad and I aren’t really into guns. But I do have a Marlin model 60 .22. I’d like to have a Colt .45 just like Matt Dillion on Gunsmoke, and a holster to go with it!
  12. I went by mid afternoon. It was so cold I figured I’d wait until it was warmer…… hopefully.
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. That’s what I was speculating. Neat history for sure.
  17. What is the story with the AC stickers on the pickup? Good on you for saving that nice 1310!
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. December 31st, 2017 for me. I was a sophomore in HS and was just starting to replace oil gaskets and seals in my Cub and I thought it would be good to join here if I needed to ask questions, and show my progress with it. Now six years later I have made many great connections and have met a few of you. A great site for sure! Even for a young one like me!
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Can turn on a dime and leave nine cents change…..
