  1. I for one have thoroughly enjoyed The Red Power Forum and the friendships I have made over the years. I went to The roundup in Pa. a few years ago and got to hang out with a lot of members on here. I do miss (some of you might remember) Blaine Griggs writings about his tractor hunting adventures and some of Bill Faulders thoughts on what could have been. Several of you posted on coffee shop about community members or forums members who were battling illness or homes were destroyed by fire. We were able to help out with these causes that we wouldn't have known about except for this forum. I have learned a lot on this Forum and have been willing to tackle some jobs I wouldn't have been willing to do otherwise. I thank the members here for putting up with me. And above all thanks to BJ, Dennis and Sallie.
  2. All steel fenders have that seam. Our local fire Dept bought a 1800 loadstar with a 478?? ci engine. Had the bulged out grille and got about 2 miles per gallon.
  3. The Fleetstar 2000 used the Loadstar cab. The late Fleetstar used the 69-75 pickup cab.
  4. I'm planning on going.
  5. At least we got to see a tire!!!
  6. TP I don't know why. Viscosity is still sold by CaseIH everywhere else but North America. We get the Shell products.
  7. The new Magnums are still being filled with viscosity hytran at the factory.
  8. All of CaseIH's tools are rebadged blue point tools from Snap-On
  9. Coleman Wheatly, (C & M farm toys) made a w-4 back in the early 90's. Once in a while one will show up for sale.

    Scouts

    No it won't fit. The 66 was designed for a 4 cylinder engine. The 67 could have had a V-8 but the body on a V-8 scout sits differently on the frame as a 4 cylinder. Look at some pictures of scouts. The 4 cylinder rear wheels are pretty much centered in the rear wheelwells. The V-8 800 models have the rear wheels notably further rearward in the wheel wells. The body was moved forward on the frame. The 6 cylinder AMC motors have different motor mounts from the IH engines.
  11. There were a few white hood and side panel 782's with yellow chassis and fenders for Cub Cadet (ONLY) dealers right after the selloff. IH Ag Dealers got the red and black ones.
  12. The chinese didn't buy Visegrips. They just make them.
  13. That Transtar looks like it was mated to an air-ride Ford cabover of the same era.
  14. You guys have to remember 1 thing. Most tractors in the Midwest were driven by the owner, in the south you had a lot of steering wheel holders. With the variety of crops and the longer growing season southern tractors were worked harder than midwest tractors. If the original poster's tractor didn't have a cab he might have a "Taco" tractor.
  15. I might have an extra, I'll check.
  16. 1822 CaseIH cotton picker used the D466 engine also.
  17. Viscosity owns the "Hy-tran" formula, CaseIH owns the name. Viscosity's ultraction IS the original "hy-tran". It's $15 to $20 a bucket cheaper than CNH.
  18. You are definitely going to need a dog house. The late Loadstars had a DT466 option. I don't recall ever seeing a late DT466 Loadstar with a butterfly hood.
  19. I do know IH trucks the oil bath was optional on the gas motors. My uncle had a customer have a fertilizer spreader truck backfire through the carb and burn a hole in the paper element. It dusted the engine. He ordered all trucks destined to be spreader trucks with an oil bath from then on.
  20. I don't know what it brought but just found out it's going to Conway NC.
