  1. In my book it is hard to beat the Black Stripe 66 series. This one has been in the family since new and still is a working tractor. I converted it from a fender tractor to a cab version because we got tired of getting wet or freezing in cold weather and the ac is nice when it gets hot.
  2. I think that Dellinger Farm Equipment was bought by the Fred Howell Implement Co sometime in the late fifties/early sixties. We bought our 706, 1206, 674 and 1066 from Howell Implement. Before that we used Masterson Implement Co in Defiance, Oh. We bought a 41-H, 46-M, 49 C and a 56-450 from Mastersons. The family still has all of these tractors and all run and still work on the farm. I did a Google search and did not find anything about either Dellinger or Howell Implement. By the way, great looking H. What year is it? Ours is a 1941. Good luck in your search. Tom
  3. It is worth it in my mind. The seat has an adjustable back, arm rest's and lumbar. We went with the cloth version of the seat because of the cab on the tractor. The ol 1066 rides as good as our Magnums. Now if I could only quiet the cab down some more.
  4. If you could still buy quality parts for the factory spring suspension that would be fine. I rebuilt ours at least twice over the years and the last time the rubber springs only lasted about two years before tearing in two. I even bought them from CIH. So far the K&M seat is holding up fine. JMHO.
  5. We went with this seat suspension setup from K & M in our 1066 that we use for planting a number of years ago and it was one of the best things we have done to increase the comfort when driving it. It is pricy but at my age well worth it. The seat has air ride like our Magnums and it rides very good. https://www.tractorseats.com/p-1036-international-harvester-06-66-series-km-441-seat-air-suspension.aspx
  6. SDman, thanks. That is what I needed to know. Sounds like it would be cost prohibitive to add the fertilizer to this planter. Tom
  7. This planter does not currently have liquid fertilizer on it. If we buy it I want to add it and would like to be able to utilize variable rate. Do you know what all it would take to accomplish this? This is all new territory for me. Thanks.
  8. This planter has the pro 600 monitor, and is hydraulic drive. Do you know if the pro 600 monitor would be capable of variable rate fertilizer application? Do you have liquid fert on yours? We bought a new 800 Cyclo back in 1988 and used it for years. Always liked it for seed depth control and plant emergence. We even bought the new row units when they came out with left and right openers to help with side draft. We traded it for a White 6100/6900 8-15 unit with liquid when it got worn out. We are still using the White but it is time to send it down the road. It does as good a job on se
  9. I kinda figured that it would, I was not asking if it would pull it, what I want to know is does anybody have one and what do you think about it? How accurate is it, seed spacing, depth control, how does it compare to the other colors out there? Went back and looked at again and the openers and closing discs show very little wear, the linkages are tight. It has the standard monitor so it does not have all of the latest flavor of the month gadget's on it so it should be fairly simple to operate. We looked at a JD that had every possible add on on it and it looked like you would have to go to
  10. Looking to possibly upgrade to a larger newer planter. A dealer near us has a Case IH 1200 12/23 pivot turn planter. Wondering if any one has one and what are your thoughts on it? Pros and cons. We have looked at Kinze also and there are some things we like on both of them. The 1200 currently does not have provisions for starter fertilizer so that will have to be added. Plan on pulling it with our 7140 mfd.
  11. BJ, I spoke to them today and they could not find any info on my tractor. Like I said at one time that information was available because I looked up my 7140 before I bought it.
  12. Looking for some help in determining where my 8920 was sold new and also repair history. A number of years ago before I bought my 7140 I was able to look it up on the Case IH website and it told me where it was sold new and repair history on repairs done by a dealer. I am trying to find the same information for my 8920. We bought it about five years ago from the second owner and had to replace the rear brakes due to glazing and when we removed the finals there was silicone sealer on the castings and the brake adjusters were missing. The PO never had any work done to it so it had to happen befo
  13. Get in touch of these guys at Ridge Carbide tools. I have used them in the past to make custom knives to use in a molding head in my Delta HD Shaper. I milled all of the trim in my old farm house and the knives worked great. I bought a custom molding head from them that accepts serrated back knives and have been very happy with it. My knives are hi speed steel because I am not doing production work. I made all of my baseboard trim and also all window and door trim. Since my house did not have any fancy profiled trim and it was painted. I just drew up a design we liked, sent them a full size p
