      That is really cool!

      Did you buy this tractor new?

      Can I get a description of the condition, etc?

      Also, owner name, ph@. and/or email would be helpful as well.

       

      Thanks!

       

      PS - The closest I currently have to yours is 7354 (IA) and 7362 (no info)

    Gasket part # needed

    Looks a lot like I am going to be selling my TD9-92 soon and before I do, I'd like to mount the rear PTO unit that I've had sitting in my shed for several years. (came off of a nearly identical 9-92) At this point, it looks like about the only thing I am missing is the gasket that goes between the rear end housing and the body of the PTO unit. Unfortunately, I don't have a stand-alone TD9-92 parts book. The one I have has all the various versions all rolled into one book and (unfortunately) I know from experience that many times that makes it inaccurate. So... Can anyone tell me what the right part number for that gasket is? ...or even better; does anyone know where I might acquire that particular critter? Before someone tells me that I can just make one, I'll just say that I'd rather not do that if I don't have to.. TIA FT

    Just popped on to see if things had improved any. Took nearly half a minute just to load this page. ^^That just took almost that long again to open the little window for that emoticon. ^^ This really bums me out b/c there is just no way I can continue using this forum with it like this. It'd take me an hour or more just to look at and read what I normally would have in five minutes. FT

    Yeah - I don't use bookmarks for RPM so that eliminates that possibility for me.. FT

    I believe you. You're the pro, for sure. I'm just saying that it has never made a bit of difference for me in the past and it has also made no difference this time. It took me nearly a full minute to open this thread and they get to this page. My internet connection, while not blazing, seems at least more than adequate for browsing. I just ran a test and got a result of 4.5 Mbps down. My machine is literally brand new so I doubt there is a problem there... I dunno... All I know is that something is different and there IS still some kind of issue here. FT

    BJ, I don't think the problem (at least mine) is due to the cache needing to be cleared. (something that, personally, I can't ever remember needing to do at any time in the past 10 or so years) Over that last week or 2(?) I've tried to access RPM on at least 4 different machines/devices and it's a problem on ALL of them. The iPad just works away until it finally gives me the error message. Any of 3 different computers take anywhere from 15-30 full seconds to load each and every page. Any attempt to browse this site is so excruciatingly slow that I finally give up before I lose my sanity. IDK what's changed or what's wrong but I think I can safely say that it's not on this end. All of that said, I think that a large part of why this is so frustrating to so many here is because, as a general rule, the site is so well run and maintained that we are just "used" to it. Problems occur. We all know that. I hope that you are able to get this one sorted out. FT

    Truck titling - are there any options?

    Yeah, I've had some people tell me that you can title it as an RV. BUT... from what I am seeing, there are some minor details they are leaving out... such as it has to have at least 2 water sources like a since and toilet as well as some other technicalities. This isn't some full sized truck that a guy could add that kind of thing to, even if he wanted to. A 47/4900 isn't exactly a big truck. On the hydraulic brakes thing: My fault - I didn't say that very well. In my initial inquiries elsewhere, I had a bevy of well-meaning folks tell me that I should just avoid a truck with air brakes b/c then you don't need a CDL. I realize that the CDL determination is based on GVW of the truck and/or of the combined vehicle. They might be ok without a trailer but once they hitch anything to it, suddenly, they're not legal. To be honest, I was just trying to avoid that conversation again. (my fault - I should have realized that the overall knowledge base here is much higher! 👍) As for requiring and CDL or not, I don't really care b/c I already carry one with air. I guess the real question is whether there is an easier way for me to be able to own/use this truck without all the headache of someone running OTR. (and PLEASE forgive my ignorance here...) If I don't use farm plates, do I then have to run a logbook every time I get in it? Do I have to plate or get permits any time I'm going to cross a state line? Is there any difference in what have to do or have if I am never hauling anything but my own stuff? Probably things I haven't even thought of yet...? FT
  10. So, for a while now, I’ve been kicking around the idea of picking up something heavier than my SRW 1-ton pickup for pulling a trailer. I’ve looked at a few IH 4700 & 4900’s and found one I really like. This would be used almost exclusively for pulling a trailer, hauling my hobby tractors... My problem is - if it has air brakes, is there any way around it having to be classified as a commercial vehicle? I mean Farm plates would do me no good since I’d need to be able to go more than a couple hundred miles from home from time to time. There’s just no way I could afford to run it with commercial plates and with all the rigamarole that goes with it. Thoughts? PS - I realize that something with hyd brakes would eliminate the need for a CDL but I have yet to find any of those that are set up well at all for towing. -FT

    IH on cereal box!

    Well the pics says it was from '75 so it was probably not very old, right? Also - I think this pic also provides me with a small amount of vindication in the "discussion" I was having with somebody a year or 2 back about water filters on the 312 motors. (they were adamant that they did not use them) Bottom line: Neat find & Cool pic! FT
