  1. I have this tractor [red/white] but it is a 1968. Yes it does have yellow under the red but it came that way new. They say it could have been ordered that way either for a dealer display or customer request. Also have a 1950 white demo and a hood off another . Both of these are repainted red. All this happened by accident as they were acquired to do work with not show or collect.
  2. You must use common sense to weld of use any form of heat or cutting tools. If you can weld to the circular part to be discarded with out touching any thing else, have at it, the pressed in part will fall out.
  3. I should not reply to this as I don't know the when part. There where all red square 'high boys', then yellow and white high and lows and solid reds in the very end. I want to say that when the club cadets came out so did the yellow / white cub paint jobs. So that would be 1961 ?
  4. The winch on the 10-20, did they cable plow with that?
  5. It was the same way down here [s.e. n.y.] when we had farms. With balers it was N.H. or J.D.
  6. Complete with steel fronts, really nice original.
  7. If it where me I would be in the field with a coin finder and if I found the broken part it would get veed out, tacked in place and brazed heavily. On cast iron and where there is room I have had good luck doing this even when the piece was used under stress. if
  8. What I never liked about the old F series was the seating/steering arrangement . At the time I had an f 12 and f14 I was going through some back trouble. However these original Farmall's where a high quality product and very practical. They must of replaced thousands of horses and miles of walking in the field. I also believe they outlived there usefulness and could have been rebuilt several more times.
  9. Sounds like a tire hammer and a couple of spoons are what's needed or even a slide hammer.
  10. Well the first picture has a distraction but after that, wow, that truck [and tractor] is better than nice and if that's not enough it has 2 sticks!
  11. That truck is so classic IH it would be nice to have just to look at and show off. On another note generator shops sometimes get in old 549 powered units [with no hours] and they go for scrap.
  12. Yes they do but finned aluminum with chrome wing nuts give you even more.
  13. Try to find a number on the bearing and search for that. On the frictions is there any thing they can be matched up to? A clutch/brake relining shop [hard shop to find] would have something.
  14. Assembly line paint would probably be baked and may not be made for air drying. So the matching paint the dealer sells is a self drying repair material. Compared to some of the crap that is out there Valspar is a good product for the price.
  15. There could be several IH dealers in one county alone back in the day. I well remember going in with broken parts where the owner would work in parts and remind me how dumb I was and then tell me how to install the part and align it. I hated that when I was a teenager but now I look at it much differently. You really miss the water when the well runs dry.
  16. And coils, don't throw anything away until proven bad.
  17. Other than the things you mentioned these 2 are common: Dirt above the sediment bowl [ I think you proved it's not but it always happens] and a spec of dirt in the main jet, just unscrew it and clean.
  18. It has to be tough for a person with no background in autobody work to do a nice paint job in todays world. Expect to spend 2 grand in paint and materials for the good stuff and even that is not the best. The sandblasted metal needs to be cleaned and primed with epoxy primer and then a 2 part filler primer and somewhere inbetween this the bodywork done. To do a first class job I would paint the stripped cab first and get it out of the shop. Next would bee the doors and fenders, hood etc. painted on horses as flat as possible. The back body last. The days of taping them up and shooting are just about gone.
  19. Back in the day you got a rockford clutch from IH and put it in and drove away. The last rebuilt I got looked so bad I sent it back and got an o.e.m. from C.I.H. It did not come set up , the installer has to do that. Be careful what you buy as every thing changes.
  20. I remember my mother riding the dump rake on the family 1 horse farm with my grandfather pulling it with our then new cub tractor. She was replaced by a rope to the tractor seat. We did loose hay until 1971, just a few acres then. I have never seen a double sickle bar or even a 9' here in the east and enjoy the photo's.
  21. I never thought to do it this way and it requires the non resistor coil.
  22. 6V does not use a resister . The resister was on there for 12V as the points want to be 6V. A hot wire from ign. switch goes on + coil terminal and a wire on the other [-] coil terminal goes on distributor.
