  1. Took dozer blade off my 856 and went thru it fixing it back up. Rock'd a NF while I was rebuilding wide front.
  2. Cleaned up hyd with stock set up and replaced busted 3pt control mount.
  3. Both. pivot pin: bought A&I $80 vs CIH $200. And A&I spindle bushing kit. CIH is only source for pivot pin bushings $50+ ea. Every aftermarket spindle sucks so i try a gather as many oem used ones i can. CIH original steering arms are $500 for one side and $380 for the other. Beyond retarted pricing.
  4. Fresh engine oil, oil filters and fuel filters. All new hyd oil cooler hoses. Front axle parts on order.
  5. Dealership sticker popped out as Moon-Nordaune INC Montevideo MN.
  6. The 1456 w/cab and belly tank from MT is the cleanest most original one i have. I put 24.5r32 Firestones on it, new wiring and a radio.
  7. 14th 1456 built. Sold new in Montevideo MN. Old original IH Sales and Service decal oh hood was repainted over but i can make out Montevideo Minn on it. Must have been traded back in in late 80s/early 90s, repainted and badged Boerboom Case IH. From then it made its way from MN to Fredricksburg TX in early 90s. Old timer ran it for few years and then sold it to the guys late father who i bought it from. Best i can put together is this 1456 was ordered factory fender delete with only 1 hyd. Aftermarket cab was probably added at the dealership when new. Cabbed was then ditched when it was traded in and fenders went on for repaint. Sad part is i bet it didnt need paint then. 2nd hyd was added on later and the factory 56 series LH block was ripped off or someone wanted updated 66 series hyd block and the 2nd hyd lines were rigged on in a sloppy manner. It still starts by key switch and starter button. Even safety starter switch still hook up to clutch pedal. Guy said it had starter button problems but it was the safety switched being out. Jumper wire and she cranks fine. The front axle is one if the worst worn out ive ever seen. 3pt and shifters are tight as can be.
  8. Post a pic of all the parts, brackets, platform, and platform extension. 756, 826, 856, 1026 and 1256 all had the same spacers under the platform. 1456 had a different spacer on the platform to brake housing but rest were same as smaller sizes. If a 66 bracket, extension bracket or combination of is thrown in the mix with a 56 platform it will goober it up.
  9. Mounting brackets on wrong sides. F-544 thru F-1456 used the same LH and RH brackets. Some had 2 hole adjust height and some had 3 hole adjust height.
  10. Very last ones made by IH were 400078R3 split weights. Had an extra hole casted into weight and ive never heard why. Theres also a few variations of each weight P/N too. Such as a 400078R1 could have had P/N on outter face or back side. 400078R1 were also available in white. The list of weight P/Ns and variations of them has some length and i still find small changes as i get in weights.
  11. Mixed in pic i took pic of my 666 tach to confirm it was correct tach for my 666.
  12. Row Crop head is the best for gathering sunflower heads. Hesston made head hunters but they fizzled out by early 90s. You can use a reel platform but have to be careful not to shatter the head.
  13. It had been reported as salvage but no location or other info was given about it then. 1st thing I see is it has the HD front axle option and was a factory cab tractor. Does it run? Where is your location to update the info.
  14. 80 deg on Christmas eve in North TX. Me amd the boys were power washing 756 and putting IHs away in the shed. Added hyd seat SMV sign bracket and powder coated hyd coupler bracket.
  15. '67/68' IH offered them in white. Guessing how good red weights looked on 1206 white wheel centers promo guys said lets flip it for 56 series intro. I think they look good on certian tractors in that time frame. Some tractors they do not. Im thinking of painting all the wheel weights on my 1256 w/cab IH 901 white. Other 1256 has all red. Shows more differences between the 2.
  16. Sleeves looked good. No visible cavitation erosion. Oring on cyl #1 leaking. Head and valves looked good, bearings looked good and still STD. Mech said this was the 1st time engine had been opened up since it left Farmall works. He was suprised on clean it is. I went by and picked up fuel tank and bracket to power wash while it was still off. Few guys even tried to buy it. I use goodyear ORTAC hose for oil hoses. $2.75' CIH wants $10' for theirs.
