  1. Yes they hook under the hood. I have many of them here. We can trade photos and dimensions if you want PM me.
  2. Neither of the those numbers show up in the Fiche that I have. The 277298R1 is only the number of that plate which shows up on the post SWD9 heads. I do not have a super 6 head here to compare but maybe they used that same plate on the 6's. I was surprised to find the plate is never shown on parts books for the Super 9 through 650. It seems you could not buy it separate from the head. It is not shown in the parts books for S6's through 450 also. It seems to be a super era head but I cannot help you with the size.
  3. A number of years ago I paid a lot of money for the correct tap for the large size IH manifolds, after all I thought I would be doing this for years and need to do it often. Like mentioned that cast iron manifold has been almost red hot for years in the presence of a lot of carbon. A tap will not touch it. There are a lot of good suggestion here but I can tell you from experience that a tap will not help you.
  4. I see the auctioneer painted the lot number on the hood. How do you get those off? I bought a small welder last week and it looks like they used the same pen. I keep complaining to them but they never seem to learn. I got mine off with a Brillo pad but I think you will leave a mark if you do that on your tractor. My welder does not have much paint left on it but it took some of the rust off so the place still shows. Nothing seemed to erase it.
  5. Mopar engines have the spark plugs located in pairs not evenly spaced. See pic directly above. Also water outlet at the very front of the head. In the bottom pic of the first three the way the block is cast with the implied bores was a GM feature during 20's and 30's.
  6. Thanks for the pics of the Dodge Diesels. I have also been looking for the factory dual single barrel carb set up for the flat 6's. That would be fun on a 265.
  7. As president of the nit pickers club I will say that with the headlights mounted on the crown of the fenders it is post 1941. '39 and '40 had the lights tucked in down in the valley close to the grill. I don't know the start stop dates but war time trucks had painted emblems and grill trim instead of stainless. Of course as a Canadian pre war to me means pre September of 1939. The leaning tower of power would be fun but probably a pretty tight fit lengthwise. The service manual for the early days of the series list a Diesel engine as an option in the big models. I have never found one and cannot find any information on it. The book implies that it is a Mopar built engine and some comments on the web say that as well. I always assumed it would be an early cummins. The wiring diagram shows a split 24 volt system (a la 10 series JD) and glow plugs. The larger models also had a 2 speed rear axle with mechanical shift linkage. Cool truck. I hope it has a truck muffler instead of the car or light truck that the engine would have come with.
  8. Wrong colour of tractor for here but quite a nice photo. Photo credit to John Teas with permission. The cultivator is too large for a super 570 it is just being moved. It is home made, he cut an IH #50 in half and then added the two pieces to another #50. The wings move to follow the land but the lift mechanism does not allow them to wing up.
  9. Someone mentioned that he liked Gordon way back when it was on CD's. I can remember when his stuff was on 45's. A couple I liked were "Did she mention my name?" and "Black day in July". He wrote "Cotten Genny" which Anne Murray took to the top. There was another one about hitch hiking home but I don't remember the title. Two of the lines were "10 degrees and getting colder, down at Bolder Dam that day" and "If you ever loved your mother won't you stop and help a brother". I may have paraphrased the second one a bit.
  10. Yours may not have had a pto but it was certainly available. I don't remember seeing one without. Belt pulley was still available but much more rare. Power steering was about 50/50. The way I understood it is that you row crop guys were making so much money with 30 inch corn rows that you did not need to waste money on high horsepower tractors.
  11. I had someone ask me to day about how many were built. Any chance of a breakdown into Diesel, Gas, Low profile?
  12. That is what I thought. All we get here are "original and chocolate mint.
  13. One of my favourite cartoons (maybe FarSide) is two Girl Scouts hiding behind a car while a house down the street explodes. One says "Maybe next year he will buy the cookies."
  14. Look at the background, that land is flat and those trees are yard sites. In that area a small field is 1/2 section. Years ago Honeys build a couple of 40 foot headers for 1482's but about that time everyone quit building pull type combines.
  15. It looks to me that the headlights on the Dodge are tucked down near the grill which makes it 39 or 40. If they are up on the crown of the fender it is 41 through 47. If it was in Canada I would say that with chrome or stainless steel trim it is not from the war years. I am not sure when they went to painted ornaments and grill pieces or when they switched back to stainless. The last year for that body style was 47. Serial number should be on the r.h. door post. Post that and someone will give you the year and size.
