  1. It happens more than you think, take a look at General motors, they have a lot of the same issues now that IH had, including the most important one, piss poor management.I worked for steel giant LTV and when things were booming they whizzed away all of their cash instead of paying down debt or saving it for tough times,sound familiar?
  2. In did put a diesel in pick ups in the 60s, I think it was a 282, a couple years ago red power magazine had pictures along with an article about them. Dig through your old red powers.
  3. You have a super c, it has disc brakes, taller grill, and it should have a water pump on it
  4. I have one of each in my shop, I almost always go to the floor model first ,it's more versatile and has a variable speed.
  5. That 560 with the exhaust pipe far forward probably has an IH turbo on it, I have one on my 560, it looks like it is coming out of the hood by the fan belt. The turbo came off of a 175 crawler.
  6. It rained all day on Christmas eve, cooled down quick in the evening, woke this morning to 5 inches with temps in the teens.
  7. Think about it, it will cost you 15 to20 to get each tire mounted and balanced at a tire shop . Now consider that the tire may have a broken belt or a puncture in one or more,now add another 10 to fix that. From now on you should wear them down some more before you swap them out.
  8. Guns are just like tractors,sometime they break, you never know when, keep using it and hope for the best.
  9. Tsc has gotten to be a Chinese dumping ground, I like the rural king stores too.
  10. They tried this in south Africa too, but the people that ended up with the land thought that the land farmed itself , you know what happened next.
  11. I knew it ahead of time myself, I fix them up because I like them and I hate to see them parted or scrapped.if I find one that is in decent condition ,I leave it like that.
  12. A local guy bought a mm g off of the firestone test center , it never pulled a plow until he got it, he pulled a 5 bottom plow with it, as a kid I had never saw a tractor that big, about all the tractors in the area were 2 and 3 plow tractors. Now I like them all.
  13. Some people put a pile of money into a tractor thinking that they can get it back when they sell it, most of the time that won't happen unless you have something special or find someone that has to have it

    That paint ought to knock the price down to half price of what it is listed at
  15. Some of the early pickers were classified as snappers, meaning they only removed the ears from the stalks,most of them didn't have a busking bed.
