  1. That is so neat! And I don’t plan on getting rid of mine either.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. I saw a number on facebook. Seemed like it was 225 but don’t quote me.
  5. I like the 615 that’s for sale. There’s lots of great machinery at that show!
  6. 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!
  7. That certainly looks like a lot of people and buggies to be observing plowing that close.
  8. That’s why I had put custom built to. After looking at it I realized it does look slightly different cosmetically.
  9. 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!
  10. Shop Mule I think. Unless it’s custom built.
  11. 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.
  12. Looks great! Looking forward to seeing it completed!
  13. 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.

  15. What do they show in there for the feed grinders? I have one but I think its newer.
  16. IH came out with Spring guides than a Summer/Fall guide beginning in the 1966 model year. This went through 1973. I have all 66-73 Summer/Fall Editions. 1972 is probably my favorite. I love the cover being taken ant the IH Photographic Center and it was the first of these I got.
  17. What’s the story of the chains being exposed on the auto car? I can see the head is below them.
  18. Yesterday I used the ‘48 Cub to mow a strip between our fence and the irrigation ditch. We’ve had a lot of rain so I think this was the third time I’ve mowed it in the last month. Cub worked pretty hard in the tall, wet thick grass but take it slow and it gets the job done. Today I fixed fence and dug three new holes for the posts. I always use the Cub and our little utility wagon as the “fence fixing” rig. **Ignore the sand, our road isn’t graded property and therefore the road gets washed in our pasture and most recently this strip.
  19. I just realized I tagged the wrong one in my post
  20. @axial-flow has a nice one in the first pic with long bar axles. Just noticed the second one does too. I guess I don’t have a of one at RPRU? I assume one was there? I just have several pictures of 1456’s. I guess I like them more? Lol
