  1. 1456 gold demo S/N 13313 progress

    That's gonna be awesome!!
  2. German overhaul options

    Endurance was bought out by Reliance
  3. International 1026 oil capacity and a pic 😃

    Someday, I'd love to add a 1026 Hydro to my fleet.
  4. Turning my 886 into a puller

    Ed Leaman is working on turbo exhaust manifold for the D312/360, so obtaining one of those would be a good start to your pulling project. Get a good 13mm rotary pump & related fuel components, that 360 will hold its own just fine.
  5. 21256 and 21456

    Looking at the production records online for both the 1256 & 1456, the Industrials we're not segregated in the lists. Rather strange, as the smaller 2826 & 2856 Industrials were kept track of.
  6. 756 block heater

    IH does list that 130085C91 block heater for the German engines, however, they only work in late s/n engines. 706, 756, 826, and 715 combines all have earlier s/n engines, where the block on these lacks the frost plug to accept that heater. The only way on these early engines is a tank heater, lower radiator hose heater, or that one I saw with the heater in the water manifold.
  7. 756 block heater

    I have only seen this in a photo (on Facebook no less), but, on the front of the water manifold of a D310/D358, there is a large pipe reducer. In it, it kinda looks like someone had used the thread-in block heater for the early D361 engines, and installed it in that location on the German water manifold. The element on those is just short enough that, assuming the pipe thread is all the same size, it'd probably work.
  8. Block heater 560!

    106725A1 is what you need. If your dealer can't get that exact number, you need a different dealer.
  9. Thread-in/frost plug heater 856

    I take it the current block heater is in the middle frost plug location on the 856's block? I think a larger thread-in one is going to be near impossible, as there's not that much depth inside the water jacket to allow for a longer element
  10. Thread-in/frost plug heater 856

    A 106725A1 is a 600 watt frost plug block heater for the IH six cylinder gas engines, D282's, and 361/407 Diesel's.
  11. Tie rod boot permanent repair replacements

    That's pretty sweet right there, since the current rubber ones are pure junk
  12. Dt407 rebuild problem

    Here's the catch. If your 407 has indeed been put together with an RD pump gear, the shaft from your 856 parts tractor won't work. The shafts are different. The RD conversion shaft is keyed into an adapter hub that is attached to the pump drive gear by three bolts. The Roosamaster drive setup that is original to 407 engines (and late 361's), the shaft is keyed directly to the pump gear. Meaning, to use your 856's parts, you'd have to pull the front cover from both tractors in order to swap gears. That involves removing the front bolster on both, n order to remove the crankshaft pulley.
  13. 1256 and 1456 differences.

    The exhaust housings are the same between a 229 & a 279. The only difference is the compressor housing & compressor wheel. Center section, exhaust housing, and exhaust wheel/shaft are the same.
  14. 18.4-38's vs 20.8-38's

    Since going to no-till years ago, we've made the switch from 18.4-38's to 20.8-38's on three of our tractors. The first was Dad's 1066. We changed those because we needed more ground clearance when lifting the 15' 5400 soybean special drill at the ends of the rows. On 18.4's, the packer wheels & arms would drag when turning. 20.8's lifted the tractor up enough to eliminate the dragging. My 1256 was upgraded about two years ago. It pulls the corn planter in the spring. Really had no reason to, other than Dad thought it would look good. He was right, we like how it looks & performs. The 1456 was done last fall, simply because a 1456 on 18.4's looks silly next to a 1256 on 20.8's. Since we don't do tillage, we don't need duals, so all the 18.4 duals are rolled up n the shed. Haven't acquired any 20.8 duals, since we don't have a need. Everything seems to perform just like it did with 18.4's.
  15. IH 1456

    Those look good on there!
