  1. Help w m hydro fliud

    Supposed to be a dipstick under the cap. You can use whatever oil you want in it. originally called for motor oil. If you share hydraulic cylinders with other tractors use what they have in them. You can't overfill the tractor will just spit out what it doesn't want if you fill it too full. When we used a loader on a m it was always filled clear full.
  2. Jerry Lagod interview

    Very nice story.
  3. Who is responsible for downstream field tile

    if you drain into it you need to pay part of it. Around here they figure how many acres drain into it and you pay accordingly.
  4. I H Dairy collectors

    Bud, I will break the ice. I have a bunch of IH milker stuff but I don't want to sell any of it.
  5. 500 hour M on page 33

    Completely ruined the value of the tractor by repainting it. They are only original once. Now he has a repainted M like everyone else's. The only difference is the turkey foot firestone tires. That tractor looked better than most before the repaint.
  6. Old time photo of a 1206 super stocker

    That's were the dry ice is to cool the intake air after the turbocharger compresses it.
  7. Identify the problem on this IH Farmall 1066

    john deere ether can.
  8. Speaking about old tractor pullers

    Another one of my childhood pulling heroes passed away. Jack Walter from Carey Ohio died January 8th. Back in the early seventies he was hard to beat. Jack won the ntpa gn points for the 9000# stock class in '72. His tractor was a 1466 called father farmall.
  9. Farmall Regular head bolt

    75 years ago they would have used white lead as a sealing agent.
  10. Any of you guys remember rendering lard?

    the best part was the byproduct of lard, the cracklins'. they were better than eating candy bars. yummy, 100% cholesterol.
  11. M or SM, based on ID plate

    your dad's tractor is a 'm'.
  12. A bit of rain here.

    3.7 here in the last 24 hrs.
  13. 18.4-38's vs 20.8-38's

    20.8 will pull a lot more than 18.4. Twenty five years experience with both sizes on like tractors.
  14. Kory Wagons

    If it was a J&M or McCurdy or any other good quality box would sell better. The Kory is one of the cheap ones that doesn't have the little step by the door so they don't empty as easy. I would say the box alone to be worth one to two hundred dollars. The running gear would be worth more maybe much more depending on the weight rating and the tires. Asking how much a Kory wagon is worth is like someone asking how much their Ford car is worth. A picture or more details would be very helpful.
  15. Company with best D361 engine rebuild kit and other parts.

    To do the overhaul correctly you will need the block bored .002 or .005 over and get the kit with the right oversize on the outside of the sleeve. The bores will not be round they never are after thousands of hours of use.
