    Anyone smart on air compressors?

    Hey guys Anyone savvy on air compressors? More specifically... I have a Craftsman 15 gallon 1.5 HP 150 PSI vertical that I purchased about 10 years ago (new-and it wasn't cheap), and it will only pump to about 80 PSI and run and run and run and run and run and run and never shut off. It used to work fine up until a few years ago. I don't use it that much, but I'd like it to work properly again. I have done a little bit of research on what could be the issue- scored out piston, damaged ring, etc but haven't tore into it yet. Do you have any thoughts/tips on what could point me in the right direction? Thanks

    I had the best dream last night

    Nothing ruins a great forum than political opinion posts.

    Any of you guys have a long beard?

    Nope. Gets too itchy and too heavy, overall annoying. I also keep it trimmed for work.
  4. I know this is most likely pure speculation.... Do you ever think we will see another IH tractor/implement again? I get that there will most likely never be another International Harvester- those days are gone for good I think...but the way companies do resurgences in models/names etc I wonder what the odds are that something will be labeled 'International Harvester' but with a CNH serial tag or something... I suppose that would make the Case guys mad......if there are any. 😏 but unless I'm blind I don't see much of a demand for Case nostalgia or history. OR is Case IH here for good?

    WD9 help needed

    Interesting why the hydraulic lever is mounted on the right side. Typically you see those on the left as the reservoir tank is on that side (as yours is) and the extra hose to run it to the right side seems unnecessary.

    Steiner/Aldermans trip

    My brother and I took a trip to Steiner tractor parts today and because Alderman's is literally right down the road by 1/2 mile we had to check that out too. The owner came out and shot the crap with us for a bit as we looked over the 5288. It has a western interior and looked good. Doors opened well, the seals around the doors/windows were good (duals were sort of shot) but it would have been fun to start it up and drive it around a bit. 😏 They are a Cub Cadet dealer as well. The 986 was out back. May be a trade in, customer repair, IDK. The inside was rough.

    WD9 help needed

    2 6V batts to create 12v. Starter was a rod that went from under the steering wheel to the right of the shifter to the starter motor. Obviously the ignition has to be on, and the compression lever in the correct location to start it on gas. Depends on how yours is but on Dad's SWD9 UP is gas.

    Farmall 400 started on diesel

    5-7K IMO for that. Get it running on diesel after a gas start and start working it/road gear for a while... if it shoots water out of the radiator cap then start to worry. Besides, the switchover on those engines is the best part.

    The missing articulated Magnum 😎

    That's pretty cool! If I were in the same situation I would have jumped on the opportunity to restore it as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Saturday fun day

    Yesterday my wife, my daughter and I took a day trip to our family farm (about 70 miles away) to pick up some firewood. (I burn recreation fires in my fireplace). We went to a pumpkin patch close by, got a couple of good ones; then loaded up the firewood, chatted with my uncle for a bit, then took a ride on our recently painted Allis B. (Ok don't shoot me it's an Allis but at least it isn't a putt putt tractor or a Case...) She was cold blooded that afternoon. We did finally get it running. My wife rode along with us to thanks to that really wide deluxe seat. I prefer the red ones, but don't mind some of the orange ones too. Probably helps that this one's been in the family since the 60s, and basically everything forward of the seat was copied by IH. 😁 My little girl loves the antique tractors too. It was a great day.

    Pulled the m for the first time

    you've got to remember that the rest of his fleet includes 600s, 650s, I9, WD9s, etc so an M is a small tractor. 😁

    Looking for a IH 3588 Grille !!

    I thought the OEM ones were fiberglass hence why they had so many problems....
