  1. Here are some pictures of a 300 Utility I have been restoring for a guy, the tractor has been in the same family since it was new, the gentlemen is in his 80's and his dad bought it new in 1954. I'm almost done with it, after driving it tonight I noticed the left brake was dragging and getting hot, what would be the fix for that?
  2. Thanks for the replies, I wear hearing protection anyway so it isn't a big deal, I'm just not going to put a straight pipe on it. I like to keep things original looking. I'm Surprised no one is making the true original IH looking mufflers for these tractors. I did look at putting a turbo on it but my pockets are not that deep.
  3. Can I assume that the oval muffler will nock the noise down more than the round one? I do use this tractor quite a lot and it is very loud in that little cab even with the stack extension.
  4. Is anyone out there making the correct muffler for a 756 International with the D310 Diesel? My Wheatland needs a new muffler and it has the original one on it yet and want to put the correct one on it.
  5. Thanks, that's what I figured.
  6. I did manage to get my flywheel cleaned up this week.
  7. Here's my Super H at work, cultivating sweet corn and tedding straw. My Super M-TA pulling the roller harrow pounding down mole hills in the yard. My Super MD on wagon detail last fall loading screenings.
  8. Its still felt, I was not aware of a conversion. Do they work well? I really don't want to make this a regular thing fixing the rear main seal.
  9. The shop belongs to my boss, he lets me work on my own stuff in there. The building was actually a factory at one time, LaCrosse Footwear used to make hip and chest waders there. The building has a front part which is 100' Wide by 150' long, the back half is 120' Wide by 100' long, with a 2 place truck loading dock off one side. The building originally had no overhead doors in it, we put 2 in the front, one is 16' high by 20' Wide the other is a 12' by 12'. The only thing that sucks about the building is that there is no floor drains, so you can't wash anything in there. Our shop gets cluttered and things gets dusty, it's hard to keep it clean, but it works out quite well for us. I can fold out our 12 row planters in the stalls to work on them.
  10. One more question, can someone tell me the year of the engine by the serial number? Here is what I believe is the engine serial number: FDBKM 9222
  11. Well I did get the Super MD split last night, that rear main seal has been leaking for a long time by the way it looks.
  12. I'm currently working on my '53 Super MD, I have a couple of questions. 1) I broke the big glass sediment bowl for the Diesel fuel, is this available yet? 2) This tractor is 12 volt, it has a generator on it, would that be Positive ground or negative ground? I'm thinking that it should still be positive ground, it has never charged since I have had it. 3) I'm putting a rear main seal and clutch in this thing. I plan on using this thing a lot this coming summer, it may ever have to pinch hit on my 336 Deere baler from time to time. Are there better clutches than others out there or do they all come from the same factory anymore? Also I have heard that rear main seals were a common problem on these, any advice on that one? 4) My starter doesn't not engage properly, and runs really slow, I see there are starter drive kits available for these. Has anyone had experience with those? Thanks.
  13. I have a 756 Wheatland and it steers hard when it is cold out. It gets better when it warms up, it was that way before I changed the Hydraulic oil, and that way after I changed it. I run Hygaurd in everything I own with absolutely no problems, I have even ran it in 3 different Hydro' s, 2 656's and 1 544. Mine gets bad when the temp outside gets below 20 degrees or so.
