  1. Motor locked, ta out, decisions decisions.....
  2. I had a few of them in 6 and 8 bolt. Seen them 756 thru 1456s. I kept a nice set of 7.50x18s 6 bolts.
  3. Throwing more gas on the fire. In IH sales brochures 26/56 series Factory TA delete have the 56 style handle installed down. Even some with TA have handle installed down. Now if 100% of TA delete 26/56 came that way is unknown. Never will be known. I bet it was mainly up the guy installing them on 26/56s. The 06 handle and 26/56 is different. 26/56/66 are the same except it seems IH started doing away with the handle coating and jyst painting them black for the 66/68s.
  4. '71 with intro of 66s came decals. Also dropped chrome shifters for painted silver. Seems like grab handles were no longer plasti coated but painted black too. Start of IH starting to cheap on tractors. Late model Badged 544 and 656s also had IH style hyd coupler blocks and square fender flashers.
  5. Looked at another 500 disc. Early version which was strike 1, frame welded on strike 2 and a $3500 price tag which was strike 3 and 4.
  6. Im having another batch of Fuel/oil pressure housings made. Put them on all my 06s, 26s and 56s.
  7. Did the IH chrome muffler have a part # too with the Stamped IH emblem?
  8. Nope. Sitting outback waiting its turn. Got burned out on 1456s and in no hurry. One day there wont be any left to be had and i just stack em up out back to work on as i get time.
  9. Rebuilt rear end and got it back together but theres a noise in transmission that couldn't be heard over trashed rear end. Will have to split again and seperate trans. Not a priority project. Its a clean 3200hr 1456 just worked too hard.
  10. Still a lil greasy in few spots but it tares up the ground.
  11. Dealer install only. IH would only install 2 IH 150lbs circles on each wheel. Ive even heard of warranties being voided when IH rep showed up for rear end warranty and 3k lbs of weights and water in tires on the tractor.
  12. You can buy a decent 706 for cheap and i have no problems killing a 706 for parts to fix up my stuff and sell a few to keep the ball rolling. A D-282 is just a turd of an engine and not worth messing with to me. If it was a 706 w/D-310 or a 756 lpg it would be different story. Too bad this one only has 1 34" wedgelock.
  13. TEXAS weekend Road Trip dealership and salvage yard purchases, pics and sights. Memorbilia was NOT for sale. I tried.
  14. 11L15 and 18.4x38. Ive begged him to let me drop the tire size down on the 686 but hes 87 and change is not in his vocabulary or agenda anymore.
  15. Granddad wanted a loader for his 686. Only tractor other than Ford 3000 he can get on these days. There are no 2250 mount-o-matics in this part of the world. Your choices are 2350, 2355 or 2450. Bought back one of my 2350s I owned before. Pulled out front axle and put in new center pivot pin and bushings. After that i pulled off frame rails and drilled holes for brackets. Way easier that way. Looks good on the 686. Thought i was going to swallow it up like a 2450 on an 856.
  16. B&W casted all the huge wheel weights you see on Plains tractors. Most of the time you see a tractor with those huge wheel weights it came from a sandy area on the high plains from Western TX, OK or KS. They are pain to take off. Very dangerous to work with. Usually have to remove rim and tire and take wheel section off to remove weight but with 34" clamp ons i dont think theres enough room to get a bite on inner clamp studs to break them loose. Itll be a fun one.....
  17. 750-800lbs per weight so 3k lbs in iron on 706 and they are presold. Guy i deal with has standing order for them. Guys up north go nuts for them.
  18. Itll get pulled and sell whole. Cant explain but the past few cabs no matter how junky sell in less than 48hrs. If it had the LH door it would be worth some good coin here. Complete set up for A/C, intact glass, solid tin. If you want it and willing to come get it or have it picked up, ill prep it and load it. We can discuss it further via PM if your interested. No one has claimed it yet.....but I also need to get it home before i can say its 100% mine and ready to sell.
  19. Looked at 2 IHs yesterday. F-706 and 966. Both are early production models. 706 originated in southern OK. 966 was probably sold new in area I saw it at. Inj pump stolen off 966, missing a few tin pieces but alot of small items still intact. Primo fenders, front mount hyd, 38" rear wheels. 706 is a turd and will be flushed accordingly. Was a both or none deal. Hrs seem right on 966. Picking them up Wed/thur.
  20. I always have liked and had good luck with Northern Radiators. $500 range.
