  1. Heavy duty aftermarket sway limiter. When new the rollers worked well. Old timers liked the set up. 6rw-8rw wide toolbar equipment and 3pt chisel plows destroyed the factory sway limiters. Hay guys have started buying them up and the IH HD cam style sway limiter set up. Pain to have on there and hook on CAT 2 equipment or smaller.
  2. Its a legit factory 1566 black stripe. Black stripes started rolling off the line in Nov of '75. All the '75 black stripes had S/N on bell housing. S/N Moved to RH rear end housing for all if '76. Bet the 15 rear end housing has plate for upcoming S/N tag relocation. S/N is only true way to tell. That 1566 was factory cab but for one reason or another cab was swapped out. Only 1566 #1 had white cab from factory. #2 till end of production had Red deluxe cabs from factory. heres the fact production list 766 - B.S. 16541 and up 966 - B.S. 31263 and up 1066 - B.S. 55425 and up 1466 - B.S. 28897 and up 1566 - B.S. 11929 and up 1568 - B.S. 7945 and up Hydro 100 - B.S. 12235 and up For comparison here's the beginning of the 1976 serial numbers. 766 - 16840 966 - 31772 1066 - 56672 1466 - 29516 1566 - 12589 1568 - 7975 Hydro 100 - 12434
  3. Im parting out an 826 w/d358 blown motor.
  4. Walk around video of 1256 how in condition we found it in. Strip down and clean up to follow.
  5. Very easily with out even seeing the S/N tag with "CU" on it. It has the smaller 37gal fuel tank, the 856 emblems dont say FARMALL. It had a decal on 856 emblem that said CUSTOM when it left the factory. Time and weather removed it. It still has the original battery hold downs vs battery covers. Sheet metal pieces that most ih are missing and small accessories customs never had. 2nd hyd and 2nd fender light was added to your 856 like most added to 756/856 customs.
  6. 856s have DT407s "Diesel Tractor" 1256s, 1026s and 1456s have TT407. "Turbo Tractor" Clean straight 856 Custom. Lots of potential.
  7. Both the INTERNATIONAL and 1206 emblems look like new repops. Buyer didnt know the difference and bought 1st emblem he saw. Common thing to see on Mecum tractors or jockey tractors.
  8. 470s, especially 480s and 490s are still very popular in north Texas. Most 480s are pulled to pieces here. Most are wore out garbage. And manual fold is no go for me anymore. Thought i wanted a 24' 485 but prices of them are high and even then most are wore out and welded up. The transport size of 485s and 490s makes it tough getting thru old timers narrow gates. Never seen a 475 local though. I like how the smaller frame 496s fold up to 12.5' transport width. Biggest disc i have and easiest to get thru gates. Had a few stop by and try and buy it but i wont sell it. Most 496s are 24' and bigger here and very hard to find a 19'-22' 496 here. The smaller frame 496s seem to hold up better than the 24'+ models. Dont see many 490s welded up. 500/501 frames hold up well too especially for some places ive seen them pulled thru. The 500 will tear into hard summer baked pasture while others just roll on top. The clods it digs up dry hard packed pastures can be discouraging though.
  9. For years only disc i used was an IH 370. Very light disc but would do a good job. I was always hunting a heavier disc and found a 19' 496. Love that thing. Its about right for a 1206-1456 here. Even then i still wanted a heavy cutting disc. Looked and bid on a 14' IH 501 but too high for me. Found an IH 500 14' local and bought it. Its a ground breaking fool. It pulls just as hard as the 19' 496. After a 500 goes over a block of ground you know its had a disc over it.
  10. Was listed on eastern KS Craigslist last year for $15k and still had factory belly tank on it.
  11. Wonder what Nick did with the belly tank that 1456 use to have.
  12. No need to poopoo and pass on a good 1256 either.
  13. Both.... Most 361s are not as good of starters as 407s, 06 shifters are not the greatest thing, i like the wider 26/56 platform with fender extensions. 56s had more factory options. 1456 is just a brute and just heavier built front to back (the list of differences is extensive). Easier to find a 1206 than 1456. 1206 will always have its own paint scheme and identity. Most cant even name 5 differences of a 1256 vs 1456. Id take a good 1206 over a rougher 1456. Side by side both good condition 1456 all the way.
  14. Tried too. Locked up in family squabble. Too far gone anyways.
  15. Doesnt go thru platform. Used cab style platform with the flanged sides to bolt onto wide coverage fenders.
  16. Wheatlands and Standards starting with the 56s had the factory option of ROPS w/wide coverage fenders. Wide coverage fenders was even an option for Farmall versions. This setup was more likely seen in the South especially in rice growing areas. I bet it was also seen out in California rice farming.
  17. I have quite a few take offs from salvage tractors.
  18. They were but both 806s & 1486 sold. Got 1066 running so i wont kill it but im gonna fix it up and sell it. Was no takers on 686 as awhole unit so its getting parted out.
  19. Who would have thought this turd of a 1066 would run and run well. Gets a stay of execution for now....
  20. Yes, square tube fabricated steel with T handles.
