  1. Dave lived 2.5 miles as the crow flies from my place. I drove the 560D over since he taught me how to build Roosa pumps and my 560D was the first one I did on my own. Has the crawler turbo setup with an updated AC 190XT turbo on it. I think Dave had a soft spot for that tractor since it showed off his teaching skills and that ole girl just flat gets it. Dave was one he** of a good guy and I miss getting to have a beer and BS with him

  3. If you're on FB at all look up Eric Best. He is a 40 series diesel guru, im sure he can answer any question you have
  4. ive done quite a few. you have questions or something?
  5. I looked around and talked to quite a few people about the 606 garrett. you can find seals and bearings but thats it. if you damage an impeller or a housing then its a doorstop. I looked around for a while gathering info and ended up using a new turbo that is for an Allis Chalmers 190XT. for the most part it was a bolt on affair. It even used the same oil drain tube as the garrett. I plumbed a new pressure line because they old one had a spot that was rubbed thin. The exhaust elbow Needed to be re-indexed since the IH manifold sits at an angle to the ground and the AC manifold is flat. No big deal to re drill 4 holes. I did mine on a 560 but would be the same for a 706 minus the air filter housing
  6. I had my 806LP temp guage redone by Todd. He does great work

    Kal

    Man, this year just sux. All the good guys are going away at an alarming rate. I loved hangin out and BS'in with Kal
  8. That thing is junk with a block busted like that and opened up to the elements. There are plenty out there if you're wanting one to play with. Id buy them fenders off ya
  9. it deflects the excess oil form the head down into the lifter galley
  10. This thread is depressing...... middle of december, no snow here and close to 45 degrees out. mine is patiently waiting while my patience is wearing thin with mother nature.........lol
  11. Its Old-F20 Tony.....lol Decent looking project. the rear wheels are actually F-12 steel wheels someone cut the clamp out of and blew 6 holes on it to mount to the F30 hubs. The lift one the back is driven mechanically and used for lots of different mounted equipment. If you're familiar with how a clutch lift work son a rope trip plow its pretty muuch the same concept. There are only a couple guys I know in Cali who are pre 39 IHC nerds. not many out west. If you have any questions hit me up
  12. Break them off and deal with it. They ALL do that for some reason on both top and bottom tanks along the side rails. i put the next size larger nut over them and fill the entire void with a mig welder to get it red hot. while its cooling off tap it with a hammer to help knock the threads loose. It sux but thats what you have to do to them. IH was famous for making casting in radiators and cooling jackets that were NOT blind holes so the end of the hardware is always in the coolant
  13. Some guys actually do. You have contract and gate price. Joe blow off the street gets the posted gate price that everyone can see. The contract price is between the yard and the scrapper. They get a much better price per ton BUT they also have a minimum tonnage they have to meet each month as part of the contract. I have a friend who does it around me and if I get 150 a ton at the gate for something he typically is getting about 250 a ton for the same thing
