  1. Still puttering along. You can see the brake shafts are back in with all the bearings. Other stuff you can't see are replaced shutters (working), returned wiring to generator, changed the rad and hoses, rebuilt the brakes, checked and replaced bad gauges. I took this pic to show that if you are starting into this job I would recommend removing the steering wheel. I know it is a pain but so is cracking your head every time you stand up. I think it took me 4 times to learn to look up before I stand up. One other tidbit for potential 9 restorers, I went to inventory to pick out my best fan shroud, that is when I found out that starting with the SWD9 IH went to a 1 inch larger fan and shroud.
  2. By the looks of your intake port you may have a seized engine or at least stuck valves. Do you need the manifold and carb or did you take those off? I have those two parts but since you call it a "dyno" I suspect you are in England in which case freight will raise it's ugly head. If you do have a seized engine do a lot of research on the internal condition before you spend any money. I am in mid project on a WD6 (same engine) and internals are getting hard to find which means expensive.
  3. I have ended up taking more off of the front than I planned. Putting a generator back on so the rad had to come off to change belts, then while I am there do the rad hoses, you all know the drill. I will look through inventory tomorrow and may put shutters back on it. I try to get them complete, original and straight. Painting is a big step for me. I am still on the hunt for two bearings for the differential. I pulled some more and found an SKF #218 which is available at one place for $1000/side Cdn after a 3 week wait. I think not. Another point about splitting a 9 series. There is only one place to bolt a tractor splitter to the tub, just ahead of the clutch. When I split it at the rear at lot of weight is at the rear and the tractor pivoted a good inch around the splitter. It took the weight off of the front wheels. Tonight before I pulled the rad I put a jack stand under the transmission. There are two Cockshutts behind the rear axle. The cream one on the right is a 540 and the orange one on the left is an E3.
  4. This pic shows why you have to split the tractor to remove the brake backing plates. The bull gears go in those slots in the housing to rear the pinion gears. To go back to the bearings I found the 311 ones, they are on the outside of the pinion shaft. The bigger ones support the differential to the brake shaft housing. Yes I took the old bearing into the store and they measured it up but their first phone call did not find anything listed.
  5. I had a 1568 at one time. Crossing the field I could set the radio at a comfortable level, once I dropped the cultivator in the ground I could't tell if the radio was still on. I always felt the 15 with a red cab was noisier than our 10 with a white cab but I blamed that on the V8 not the cab.
  6. I have not figured out if life gets in the way of tractors or tractors get in the way of life but I finally got time to order some parts today. it turns out that the big bearing that supports the differential from the brake shaft cage is getting hard to find. I would have though they bought that one off of the shelf. My supplier here is Rosetown is hard to stump but they came up empty so far. I pulled two bearings today and they both have IH part numbers which do not cross up. The one has the old IH inside a C symbol, it came out of a super 9. That must be an. original bearing. The second has the straight IH symbol but it didn't cross up either. The small bearing on the outside end of the brake shaft is available in two forms, better and best. The price is $40 Cdn or $100 Cdn, for as far as this will go I am going with the less expensive ones.
  7. Hillman: I have been trying to decide whether to roll the back away or the front. I see you moved the rear part away. I have been studying that section it looks to me that the centre of gravity is behind the axle, am I correct? Very far back? But I have a tractor splitter I can put on the front section so I may go that route. My week is fairly busy so I will have time to think about it all.
  8. LMK I should have phoned you and sold it before I posted this picture. This is the right side brake and yes that is 1/2 of a bearing cage hanging on the shaft. For any of you that have not been this deep in a 9 series it looks easy to just use those press holes and pull the cage out and change the bearing. The cage surrounds the bull gear so if you do that you will break the cage. The tractor has to be split now, you can see the split line between the rear axle and the brake housing. Fun and games, I am sure a future buyer will pay me handsomely for this extra work.
  9. One tire and fender off to get to the bad brake. I am getting too old the squeeze in under there anymore. The fender had to come off anyway. Fortunately only the brake is bad, not the brake shaft. The brake is very bad. All of the springs are broken and everything pretty well stuck together. At least the balls are still round. Out to inventory tomorrow to look for springs and better brake disks. I have been saving parts for this for years so today I did last things first and rounded up a full set of good stainless steel emblems.
  10. This 600 runs pretty well but has been rolled, the result of a front end loader with a big bale on it. It had a whisper at a valve but setting the tappets seems to have fixed that so I will proceed to replacing the sheet metal. Also the homemade hydraulic system. It would not drive into the shop last night in reverse as one brake was not seized but dragging enough that the other side just spun out in the snow. It would move forward to here it is in the "bigger project" box.
  11. I was the owner of I 9559 and registered it with you when it was located in Rosetown Sk. Canada. I sold the tractor to a jockey some time ago and was reading your list to see if it had resurfaced. I have no idea where it is now or who owns it.
  12. I think you have the factory pan seat including the upright supporting it (cut and welded at 90 degrees). I have the same suspension on a Rockol tractor but I am sure Rockol did not build their own. It was probably a jobber available at farm supply stores.
  13. I am working one of those engines in a Gibson tractor. I could not get oil to the oil filter. I found that a previous owner had soldered off the inlet line right at the block. If there is anyone around from the day when those engines were being used was this a factory suggestion? I can't see why someone would close off the oil filter even if it was only a partial flow as they all were in those days. I wondered if the original opening was too large and maybe starved the rear cam bearing (nearest too it) or even the rest of the engine. The original fitting has a 5/32 hole in it. I plan to open the hole but could make it smaller.

    Trip to S'toon

    I assume the box of bits that showed up on my doorway is the extras from the rebuild? I have that 18.4 x 34 off now if you are interested. I know where there is a nice straight but seized 706 with the German engine in it if you are interested. Not quite free but close. Sorry I missed you I just got a Gibson and a Rockol to show you now.
  15. I am crushing an 806 diesel engine (seized) and wondered if it is worth the trouble to get the exhaust manifold off. Do they rot out and break like the old gas tractors did? If I go that deep it won't be much trouble to get the diesel pump off but I would have to be pretty desperate to go to the trouble to install a pump that had been sitting for 20 years even though it is still sealed up.
  16. July 27. Mixer on Friday night, show on Saturday in conjunction with Perdou summer fair and hang out Sunday. pancake breakfast at 8:30, parade 10:30 visiting all day. About an hour west of Saskatoon if you are flying in.
  17. I am in Rosetown. The IH Chapter 38 annual show is in Perdu, just over an hour away.
  18. Does yours run or loose? I always wondered who to call about that 660, it has been awhile. Coming to Perdu?

    WK40 wheels

    The front tractor still has WD40 wheels, though as mentioned they are factory rubber. I was told that you had to slow down the rear tractor in corners because the governor would sense an increased load as the leader started to turn. The rear governor would open up and could cause a jackknife or break the rear wheels of the front tractor. You need a super or later 9 series for that type of wheel. Dad's regular 9 was a very late one and it had these wheels as well.

    WK40 wheels

    This shows that a 34 in tire fits inside a fender on a WD40 but from your pulling pic you already know that. The steel strap going around the nut and then bolted to the wheel is the locking mechanism for the wheel nut. If I was to use that tractor for work I would have to find another system so I could put wheel weights on the rear axle.

    WK40 wheels

    if you go to http://www.ihc38.com/index.html and go to the newsletters heading, click on "summer of 17" and scroll down. That will lead you to my story about the WD40 tandem hitch. After that newsletter went out to our members I found who the original builder was. He is now deceased but a member of the family who remembers playing on it as a child came and drove it around the yard. I realize that you probably want a good pic of the rear wheel from a 9 on it and that will come later today.

    WK40 wheels

    Be sure and get the late 15-30 wheels, the early ones have a keyway not a spline. I have a WD40 with WD9 rear wheels on it. The spline fits but the 9 hub must be thicker as there is not enough thread for a double nut to lock it all together. It may be easier to find a WD9 wheel than a 15-30 depending where you are.

    1566 1086

    You don't say where you are. I have a black stripe 1566 with very low hours and no engine. Location west central Saskatchewan Canada. Very reasonable.
  24. I have a running WD6 with the Boche injection pump that needs main and rod bearings. My machine shop can no longer get those. Is there any supplier that does stock them? Stiener, Rice and Webber do not list them online. Any other ideas?
  25. You don't want to pay the freight from Canada do you? David Saville Rosetown Saskatchewan Canada
