  1. New tornado maker arrived today. Waiting on a new sleeve to get here. Took a 3LD-229 off, putting a 3LD-279 back on. When i mounted the firestones i went with the 16 clamp option.
  2. All the crap i rounded up for it or took off to bring home.
  3. Installed all new wiring. Fuel/temp gauge is iffy. Really dont want to buy aftermarket if i dont have to. Cleaned up engine area. New hyd oil cooler hoses, alt and kevlar fan belt. Nice when they crank like they should and dash lights work. Also installed an IH oil pressure gauge.
  4. Rebuilt and installed a clutch assist and found a nice PTO shield. Stripped all the old wiring and dash panels. Ordered all new wire harnesses and electrical components. Rewiring a tractor makes a world of difference.
  5. Big rubber does nothing for me. I pull them off and sell em and send them north. Sold a set of 23.1x34 Firestones mounted on rims and wheel centers for decent $ few years ago. Helps buy new parts and get a project going. I like how 11.00-16 look on 16x10 rims and 11L-15 look on 15x10 rims. Has that deep dish rim look. Variety is nice but Colemans are too expensive to buy into and rebuild. Bigger rubber cost bigger $. Everyone I drag home has junky longbar/shortbars and its hard to find decent 18.4x38s as it is.
  6. None of mine have parklock updates. Im on flatground blackland prairie. Most come in with ends bent in a little. Some were froze up from lack of use. This one needs to be replaced. This came from gulf coastal bend and they are flat ground too. They welded the ends up making it nonajustable. Once i have them adjusted right they work fine for me with no issues. Ive already pulled the top cover off and rebuilt bottom end of shifters so i see no need to go back in. I do want to see a tractor with parklock update and tell if i like it or not.
  7. Ill add some weight emblems next week. Those grille emblems make the blank weights tolerable. IH stamp weights have become hard to find and expensive. Need to pick up hardware to hang more rear wheel weights. Still deciding on rear tire choices or if ill have to play tire swap games again. These longbar/short bars might end up on 1026.
  8. Yes, it was a factory cab tractor. Im a way i like them vs open station pto levers. The look throws them off but easier to reach. Open station pto levers and parts are pricey.
  9. It takes 2-3 junk seats to make a decent one. The arm rest brackets look simple but might be pricey to replicate. Most originals are rotten. They were raw metal when factory installed. Picked up a load of aftermarket weights today.
  10. Busted out some powder coated seat brackets and swapped them out on a decent but not primo hyd seat. It all goes together well. When it warms up ill clean up the seat more and paint the bottom seat plate black.
  11. Rebuilt the good front axle, added 11.00-16 on 16x10 rims, narrowed in the rear wheels, added dual hubs, added a good set of 3pt screw housings, rebuilt hyd seat valve.
  12. I don't know anything about the 766 other than it sits in Pella IA. I never saw it just got the front axle that came off if it.
  13. One side pulled right out, other side took 40ton of persuasion.
  14. It's about to get replaced with regular 1456 axle.
  15. Modified to run front wheels on top of wide rows instead of in between. This way fronts wouldnt pack wet ground infront of bedder bottoms and make cloddy rows.
  16. Picked up 16x38 rims and tub full of parts i had powdercoated. Heading to KC this weekend to swap parts and pick up a nice 1456 front axle.
  17. Ive had all the combos. Use to add tilt to almost every tractor i brought home. Got tired of that and the expense of buying, rebuilding and installing them added up. I still prefer hyd seats. Decided from now on, if it doesnt come in with tilt its not getting tilt. If it has tilt rebuild it, make it tight and right.
  18. PM me your full name for the contact info. wedgelocks weren't as common as clamp ons but 34" wedgelocks would be rare.
  19. Tilt wheel were prototyped on 06s but never factory option. They were introduced when 56s were as an option along with several other new options. They were available as a dealer or field upgrade for 06s. Tilt steering was the same for 26, 56, 66, and 68s with exception of steering hand pump and base plate. If the tractor had tilt and a horn, the center cap served as the horn button. Dont see that combo too often.
