  1. They look awesome sir !!The Black Stripe makes them stand out but they are tough to get on straight ! At least i have a tough time .
  2. Obviously i,m biased toward the Blackstripe Family !The 15 i,m working on now was sold to me as runs great ,But like most 15,s it too was rode hard and put away wet !Air Filter full of dirt ,Radiator stopped up with dirt discovered worn bearings burnt pistons .Have to at their age just plan on worst case when you buy them unless you know some history .I like all the 66,s just like the Stripe Family a little better !
  3. Higher PSI Relief was included in the MCV rebuild .It was recommended to upgrade the pump as well.
  4. Just for easier steering when we bought the tractor steering was stiff at low rpm .Replaced everything in the front end .Rebuilt MCV valve when ordering all that it was suggested to upgrade so i did ?
  5. Okay Thank You the old one is a TRW which i assume maybe original to the tractor new one is aftermarket which is why i was concerned maybe i was missing something i needed .
  6. New MCV Pump arrived but doesn,t have the oil galley the old one has .Use it or send it back ,Assume it,s there for a reason ? New is a 12 GPM verses a 9 original.Going on a 1566
  7. Thank You .The best part is having a son that enjoys coming by and working on it with me !!
  8. Getting there engine done and first start been done .All sheet metal painted .Minor setback as soon as it started top right corner of MCV Valve gasket let go! Figure out what i did wrong there .
  9. Yes sorry about that meant freon and thank you !And you are right ac guys will always say i gassed you up running cool now !!!
  10. Have a 66 series ac clutch all has been working but i know it,s out of gas do the 66,s have the low pressure switch like the 86,s clutch won,t engage if so i guess just jump it and get some gas in it ? Thank You !
  11. Was hoping to be farther along by now but fenders were a problem had to settle for some in pretty rough shape .My son does my tig welding so had to repair on his schedule waiting now on the braces for the two post mounts that go on them .Did get to pull F-4 Phantom to the crane for our gate guard local airport !
  12. I agree about the sun .Other than the Letter series everything i actually use has at least a canopy .
  13. Hopefully someone here knows for sure ,but ive been told in the later 66,s IH changed and made them all wide? This particular one came off a Blackstripe766 that unfortunately was headed to be a puller .I tried to get it all but no sale so took what i could .Middle pic is a Leaman wide base that is on a 15 in the shop now .First pic is regular bottom from Leaman.This setup was headed to the 14 but the cab is just too nice to pull ac even still works one owner (till me)clean Indiana tractor,It will end up on either a 14 or Hydro 100.
  14. Finally found and aquired a original wide leg two post Rops and Canopy !Feel like a 12 year old at Christmas !!
  15. Pilot Knob Restorations will fix it for you .Like ksfarmdude says check shaft and the one brake pedal .
