    Looking at 856

    change the fuel filters. I bought a Hydro 86 with the same symptoms. Got it VERY reasonable because of how it ran.
  2. Check with a Nissan forklift dealer in your area. They were used in forklifts.

    1300b Question

    Somewhere I have some IH factory literature on the "campermobiles" as they were called.
  4. 966 has the Mickey Mouse decals. If you are going to spend the money for a nice paint job don't skimp and put ebay decals on the tractor. The International decal was NEVER rectangular, it was trapezoid.

    auto and farm insurance

    Also don't forget to get underinsured/uninsured coverage. There's a lot of folks riding these days without insurance.

    Compact tractor

    The first Cub Cadet compacts were Mitsibushi based off the discontinued CaseIH compacts then Cub Cadet went with Yanmar.

    mmi is correct, also those tanks have a history of sediment and crap settling in the bottom of the tanks. The tank needs to be drained and both sides cleaned out.

    It definitely came from the factory with a 304.

    Dot approved?????????

    Here in NC if a tractor is under 10,000 lbs 2 chains, 1 on front and 1 on the rear of sufficient weight rating for the load is all they require.

    What she don't know won't hurt her.

    About 25 years ago at Christmas my mom cooked country style steak with venison. My grandmother ate 2 pieces and had put a 3rd piece on her plate when someone remarked how good the deer steaks were. She pushed her plate away and got up from the table.

    High Crop 1066

    The 1066 hydro was offered as a hi-crop as well as the Hydro 100, 186, 1026, 966, etc. I believe the 1086 was the largest hi-crop. I know the 3688 was available as a hi-crop but don't know it a 5088 was available.

    My eyes started hurting when you showed the photos of the dusters. I remember putting copper sulfate dust on peanuts and you eyes burning for days!

    In need of advice with a B-120 axle swap.

    In need of advice with a B-120 axle swap.

    I would try and find a set of axles from a mid 70s Chevy. You will probably have to relocate the spring perches to fit your springs. I'd recommend a chevy instead of an IH axle because brake parts are easier to get.
