  1. That depends on the cab. Some were taller than others across the dash, but that may be just the 66 series cabs. Remember that an 8 has a taller steering column than a 6 so if it is made only for the shorter 6 it won’t fit without major work. Certainly the axle brackets are different as well as the front mounts. If it was me I’d probably try to find one off the same size tractor that it’s going back on.

    Triple tree row with a deep moat between the outer and middle row and mine field between the middle and inner. 


    Now I don’t hate people so much as to put in a moat or land mines! Though those attack goats do sound appealing!! Lol

    I would do that! Although give myself a little more room to work. It’s nobody’s business what I do inside those trees!!!

    Bachlorette party bus.

    While a big group of girls getting drunk sounds like a good time, my experience is bachelorette parties are anything but! In my younger days Saturday nights were typically spent in a small bar, and when a bus came around I always hoped it was guys not girls. The guys want to drink and have a good time; the girls wanted to sell you suckers or beads or something!

    Bolt pattern is the same. I measured, and the fenders have braces that would have to go. The big tires aren't all that much better than the ones on the 806, not worth the trouble. I guess I keep looking for 34's.

    What size 34’s are you looking for? And where are you located? 18.4-34 are common and not in high demand here.

  6. You better get out a tape measure. I highly doubt your 806 has the same ten bolt hubs as a 45, and I know the axle size is different. However you may be able to make an adapter plate to bolt them on. I don’t know if all wheatland style fenders are the same, but I have definitely seen 20.8 on the larger tractors with that style fender.

    Well, I don't think I would mind trying a little tillage on either of those gal's property, I just don't want to raise any crops there.

    If you ain’t looking to grow a crop, keep the planter in the shed!!! Lol

    Is that the kit that added 2 or 3 inches to the length, the kit I saw had extensions for the platform and hyd lines etc on the 4020. The 48 did have a hole made in housing to get power for mfd. Thought it was a kit, but maybe just a farm shop custom job.

    I was under the impression they raised the cab, not lengthened anything. But I could be wrong.

    Did  Lely make it ?  I saw a Lely HFWA on an 806 at a collector auction once. I could be mistaken but it seems like the tractor was lengthened at the clutch for hyd pump ?   Or I might be thinking of the 4020 I saw that was lengthened at one end of trans for a gear for MFD.  On a side note once saw a 4840 mfd. A hole was cut in transmission or rear housing, a gear installed, etc to get MFD. Think it was an aftermarket kit may be.  Don't know if I could cut a hole in my new 4840 for that.  Just my luck " I thought you said inches from the filter housing, not centimeters. We'll just put some of those washers from the used bolt bucket behind that gear and grind some on that that thing that's in the way, it will be fine when it wears in. "     ^_^

    The Deere tractors required Elwood to chain drive the transfer case out of the top of the transmission.

  10. I have only seen one hydraulic fwa setup for an ih tractor- many years ago on eBay and for a 706. It went for under a grand and I should have bought it just because it was rare. I suspect it would be driven by a hydraulic pump off the transmission just like the transfer case on mfd models.

    So the way I understand it is Tenneco dropped the IH 4wd and large frame 2wd/mfd for the Case versions. But they kept the smaller IH tractors around and slapped Case International on them. Was there any other equipment in the lineup that was from Case? If not, if they had used the 88's from IH there would be nothing from Case other than the name. Not looking to start any arguments or anything from this either.

    I will say that there is probably 5-90/94 series case tractors to one 88 series IH around here. Alot of hours out on them case tractors around here. Alot of guys got rid of their 66/86 IHs and went to 90/94 cases for baling. I got no complaints about either tractor. We have a 4494 and its been a really good tractor. Would like to get a 2394 some day for baling and combining. Even a 2294

    Skid steers were case, maybe some other construction equipment as well?
