  1. Thank you for pictures! May build a set of these instead of welding on every small point implement we come across.
  2. Had to drop a bottom off of this snap coupler plow to even begin to be able to plow this field.
  3. Also, should the second colter be turned around or slid back on the frame where it is closer to the back moldboard, or is it correct where it is now?
  4. Do you have a picture of the filler plates? We’ve toyed with the idea of putting filler plates in the fast hitch sockets but didn’t know that was something IH actually made. Do the filler plates have a lip to catch the end of the socket?
  5. Yep, the 240 is large point and the plow is small point. I will tack some metal to the points on the plow to make it large point, but easy to remove if I sell the plow. Here’s a picture of what I did to a c200 disc plow I had the same issue with. Thanks for the verification that is a C20 plow. It almost looks like to much plow for this size tractor, but then again all I have plowed is North Carolina red clay.
  6. Can anyone tell me the model of this plow? I think it is a C20 but I’m not sure.
  7. Thanks everyone, an infrared thermometer is a good idea. I’ll also check the new gauge in a pan on the stove to see what it does. I think I’ll order this gauge from precision tractor instead of the Steiner one. I want this kind of gauge for the original look of it. I’ve ran numerical gauges before on three different tractors, I was just wondering how the numbers would line up with this gauge.
  8. What is the temperature range for the green “run” area of this temp gauge? Is it 170-200 ish? Also what temperature does the cold start and hot end? I’ve heard normal operating temp is when the needle is on the “n”, what is that temperature? Thanks, Brody https://www.steinertractor.com/IHS531-Water-Temperature-Gauge Also, is this Steiner gauge reliable to use or is their another place I should get this gauge from.
  9. So now the 240 has nice new bkt tires all the way around. I can’t really think of anything else left to do to the 240, other than drive the wheels off it!
  10. 1st picture is with 5.50-16 implement tires 2nd picture is with the new bkt 6.00-16 tri ribs
  11. Here’s a few up to date pictures of the 240. 1st picture is the 240 in line at the tractor show myself and my two friends put together. 2nd picture is myself on the farmall at the end of a slow race we did at the tractor show. I lost to a John Deere 40, but I was slower than 6 other tractors. The 3rd and 4th pictures are form our towns 4th of July parade. The last pictures are the 6ft finish mower behind the farmall I use when I get some free time to mow a neighbors 1.5 acre field. And the fast hitch plow I used a little in our garden. The 240 is getting new, bigger front tires soon so I’ll post before and after pictures when it is finished.
  12. Has anyone on here ever been to Cades Cove national park in Tennessee? In the park there is an 11 mile one way loop road you can ride down slowly and watch for wildlife and look at old barns and cabins. Dad went there dozens of times as a kid and I’ve been twice. Riding through the Cades Cove loop road is my favorite thing to do for a vacation. You get to the one way loop road by driving about 10 miles away from the closest town, Townsend Tennessee. Along the loop road we spotted many deers, black bears, and turkeys. Spotted one coyote and saw a pasture of horses once. The second picture is a black bear in a tree we spotted along the road leading into the park and loop road.
  13. We’ll try to get a bearing number tomorrow. We’ll double check but I’m pretty sure all the new bearings match the original bearings dimensions. Everything spins nice, and we think the only problem is the 5 gear shaft sticks out to far into the 4th gear shaft, making that noise in the video. Here is the transmission casting numbers if that helps with dating it. Talked to a Steiner parts man today and he found a 5th gear and shaft that matches the original shafts dimensions. I believe we are going to return the shaft and 5th gear we have for the one he has that is closer to the original dimensions.
  14. That sounds like a great idea. Thank you, we will try and do that Monday. And there are new bearings and a new bolt in the shaft. Overall, the new shaft on the right is 1/16 longer. I’m thinking the new shaft we got is for a different H like you said
  15. Called Steiner about the issue we have. The guy said call him back Monday with the dimensions of the original shaft and he will see if he had one closer to the original dimensions. I hope the only problem is the new 5th gear and shaft is machined wrong or just the wrong one for our serial number H. Here’s some pictures of the h. It belongs to the FFA advisor at our high school. But the FFA doesn’t work on tractors at my school so the H is in the automotive shop.
