  1. Todd I ran Tellico before I had a trailer. I would drive 6 hours on interstate, wheel the next day, then drive home on Sunday. I had to make sure I didn't break anything because it was my daily driver also!!!

    Hydrostatic transmission instead of the normal gear drive transmission.

    The 656 Farmall came out in 1965, IIRC the 656 utility came out in 66. The styling was changed in late 67 when the other 56 series came out. (the 656 utilities got different emblems in 67)
  4. I used to rock crawl Tellico near Murphy NC. My Diesel Terra had a crawl ratio of 68 to 1. Didn't do anything amazing just chugged along.

    You could add the 234 hydro. I have a 2544 hydro industrial.
  6. Tim, Did you know Brad Coltrain that worked for Kodak? I believe he was a chemist.
  7. Matt must be a Frankenstein tractor!
  8. Obviously, the owner doesn't know what he has when he says it's a 12forward/6 reverse transmission. It's a 360. The 360 has 2 oil filters on the right side upside down. The 358 german diesel has 1 filter mounted horizontal.

    97 F-350, 7.3

    I just put a set of reman injectors in my 2001 F-250. Readily available from Ford.
  10. 1 just sold down here at a Rich & Rich auction 826 gear drive. Auctioneer didn't know what he was selling. Brought $8900 https://richandrich.nextlot.com/public/sales/95218/lots/19803192
  11. That's my 664. I bought the loader used from a guy in Pa. He had it on a 504.
  12. I was referring to the original movie in which the series was based off of. In the movie there were several shots of an IH dealer Sparta Equipment.
  13. So sorry to hear this. Prayers for both families. Will continue to pray for you and your family.
  14. Prayers for Zeke and his family.
  15. It was a stock N/A 856. I have to ask this question, Big Bud Guy why are you on here? You hardly ever have anything positive to say about IH.
  16. i ran a side console 3020 diesel for years with the 8 speed sycrorange. We used it for plot peanut harvesters. If you held the clutch in for to long the pto would starve for oil and kick out. We had to knock the tractor out of gear to utilize it on the harvester. The diesel engine also had NO torque rise and would fall on it's face just like a 4430. A good 856 will give a 4430 a run for it's money. The guy who bought dad's 856 sold the 856 and bought a 4430. Even he admits the 856 is just as powerful and burns 1/3 less fuel.
  17. I hear so much B/S about JD powershift. I'd rather have an IH tractor with a T/A or Hydro than the jerkomatic powershift. I've run a lot of JD tractors and was never impressed with them and wondered why they had such a great reputation. Superior hydraulics is a joke. JD never had a draft system worth a poot. Yes maybe they steered easier, but if you were using a front end loader on a gear drive JD and using the clutch a lot you could run out of hydraulics. This happened on certain models as least as late as the 3155. The charge pump couldn't keep up with the main pump.
  18. I don't see how the 56 series was behind the 20 series. I'll take a 856 or the beloved 4020 anyday!!!
  19. If you need some low ash oil, I'll be glad to ship you a case. We have cases of it in stock at work. Just shoot me a message with your phone number.
  20. Congratulations, Keep a journal. You will enjoy reading it and looking back as time goes on.
  21. Alan wasn't that where the In the Heat of the Night was filmed?
  22. This tractor was my 1st cousins and we restored it for him and his grandaughters. I'm a little disapointed in the decals from Dakotah Toy. They are too bright white.
