  1. I toured Pioneer Village as a child.  Remember it well.  Very cool.  Just about any item you could think of, they had them on display.  I remember a beet harvester mounted on a Farmall H in the agricultural building.   Hope Mike does not mess the charm of the place up......

    Hard question to answer, I will say this, not my 826. Not a knock on that model, just that since it doesn't move it hasn't worked it's way into my heart yet. The others; 1066 really should be my favorite, it just gets the work done. 756, I smile a lot every time  use it! It was quite an undertaking for someone with my experience level! 856 is moving up fast! Hopefully get the clutch oiling problem figured out/fixed this year. It could become the favorite pretty easy.

    Because we love pictures:

    What is the story on the 2nd to last tractor you pictured.  I believe I've seen it on here before but don't remember the story.  Appears to me some sort of 230/240 morphydite.

    That was at the Roundup last summer.   A preproduction/ test mule.  The story was that an IH employee owned it for years. Used it on his acreage.

  4. The front will bolt right to the bolster.  Certain that the rear mount will not line up right.  I saw a 766 with a wet bolster that the owner had pulled the narrow front off and installed a 1456 front axle.  It was in the paint booth between coats.

    The straight pipe and pyrometer tell me that one has a windmill on it.  Is it yours?

    A guy would have to be careful with the fuel screw for sure.

    Alan and Sledge, there's little if no difference between the 666 and 686, right?

    Yes, that is my 666, that I refer to as "Lucy".  She has an M&W turbo with pyrometer and a Thomure chrome stack.  I have never had it on a dyno, but she sure blows black smoke when you crack the throttle!  My favorite tractor for parades and tractor rides.   That photo was taken at the Roundup in DuQuoin.

    The 666 and 686 have almost no difference between them.  Just the change from the 312 to the 310 German diesel during the 686 run. The stripes on the hood were updated to reflect the larger 86 series machines.
