  1. Scale models just sent us a flyer for their NEW tractors. The 50th anniversary of the 866. Unless they change it we are NOT ordering any.
  2. Not my truck but needs chrome rims. Truck is to dark for my taste. Beautiful truck though.
  3. Danny we are going to sell both. I'm going to continue to run Viscosity ultraction in my equipment.
  4. Google Royce Bone, He won a lot of pulls with a 460 and then a 666 in the 70's and early 80's
  5. This belongs to a friend of mine whose family owned a IH/CaseIH dealership for 50 years. CaseIH yanked their contract about 2 years ago. The shop mule was at the dealership when his father purchased it in 1968. He was trying to get some information on it so he could advertise it.
  6. Sounds like me. I had a 70 Gremlin, 199 ci, 3 on the tree. Bought it for $300 with a bad transmission. Bought a used transmission for $125 and I was riding. Tough little car.
  7. The utility row crops were about were about $410 dollars cheaper than the Farmalls and basically had the same crop clearance. That was a fair amount in 1973. There were a bunch sold in the southern and md atlantic states.
  8. I saw the tractor about 5 or 6 years ago at a repair shop near Carrboro NC. It popped up on facebook market a week and a half ago. The grille guard was on it when I first saw it 5 or 6 years ago and is coming off.
  9. No it's a late 72 model. It's Martha's tractor. After a friend of her's was stuck in a parade on a hill and had to manipulate the clutch and brake for about 15 minutes, Martha said she wanted a hydro for HER tractor.
  10. I have a 2544, 544 utility row crop, 656 utility row crop, and a 664 all with that same swept back axle. The 2544 has the HD non adjustable axle.
  11. 1973 544 utility row-crop. Hydro is strong, motor runs great 3200 hours.
  12. I was in a remote area of Halifax County this fall. I witnessed 2 democrats digging peanuts in late model cabbed John Deere tractors wearing masks. I just can't get over how stupid some people are.
  13. Viscosity does have a website. The new oils are supposed to be compatible.
  14. Here's the scoop on Hytran. CaseIH owns the hytran name, Viscosity owns the Hytran formula. CaseIH switched from Viscosity to Shell to manufacture Hytran in North America. The old hytran formula will be sold by Viscosity as ultraction fluid about $20 a 5 gallon bucket cheaper than the current Hytran price. We are stocking both at our dealership. I know what I'm going to continue to use.
  15. 303 is such a sorry oil the NC Dept of Agriculture made it illegal to be sold in the state of NC
  16. jimb2 mine is a 79 and had the short handle. The handle was modified by the previous owner.
  17. I don't think the 84 series were skidded to Louisville. Louisville was shut down about 1980. My 784 is a American spec tractor but has the dreaded Lucas alternator and starter. When the starter went out I replaced it with a New delco for $10 more than rebuilding the Lucas.
  18. I've got a good used manifold if you need it.
  19. Eason


    Actually the 886s were turned up to 90 hp. When the 886s came out they were 80 hp. The 786 became 80 hp and the 886 was turned up to 90. This was done so IH would have a tractor to compete with a 7600 ford or Deeres 2840. Why, marketing I guess.
  20. We just got our first 55 gallon drums of ultraction from viscosity yesterday. We will be carrying both at Lilley International. I'll be using Viscosity.
  21. I'll check tomorrow when I get to work.
  22. Great job. Nice tractor porn to start a new year!
  23. Thanks for the birthday wishes Fellas!!!!
  24. Need some help identifying this Hubbard Shop Mule. Has Farmall A running gear
