  1. Conks, please post a picture of your 460 hi utility. I am restoring a similar one. The headlights on mine set on top of the hood. Is this correct?

  2. I had the same problem with my narrow front 756. It would "catch" as you described. At the advice of the IH service manager, I removed the bolster and replaced it with a wide front from a newer model IH. The 756 bolster containers the power steering unit as well as the steering gears and He said there could be expensive to repair. He recommended I stop driving it for safety reasons. The newer wide fronts such as those from the 86 series tractors will fit with some modifications. The power steering units on those are located outside the bolster. A much better design.hope this helps.
  3. I would be very interested in it.my email is: msholtkamp@gmail.com i have a 7220 and would like to see some sales literate about it.
  4. I,m sure we will see it on several tractor rides. Great tractor.
  5. There is a place in Kansas City the stitches cracks. I'v had a few heads there. No problems ...but a long wait. Nevada ruined a head of mine a few years back.
  6. I've got a late model H with disk brakes and fast 4th. Will post serial number later.
  7. The headgasket leak is slight, so slight that it wasen't noticed until I noticed a fuel filter was was leaking fuel. Further investigation show a stain on the front of the block. Coolent could be found only after the tractor sat after a day. She is headed for the shop next week.
  8. Local shop says remove the head and have it planed. Then check head bolts to see if they are stretched. I thought these engines were bullet proof. Guess not.
  9. How common are leaking head gaskets on 6000 hour CIH 7220's?
  10. I have two propane tankless water heaters. One is floor heat and the other is for residence water use. Have to have soft water and some maintenance. Will not go back to tank type heaters.
