  1. Oh, my bad. As I have one of their 4 barrel intake manifolds that they don’t make anymore. Was the truck white before?
  2. Maybe you need an IH America aluminum 4 barrel intake? hint hint
  3. Why do you think its a wheatland? It has adjustable axles front & rear, has a t/a & dual remotes which wheatlands dont have. The 06 to 56 used the name wheatland but were stripped down as didnt come with t/a, pto, non adjustable axle & single hydraulic remote for customer's that wanted a lower priced tractor. Appears someone has taken the 3pt hitch arms off as the rock shaft is there, put on different draw bar setup. Over the last 50 years its anyone guess what happens to stuff. I have a 766 & 1066, neither of them have 3pt from factory & there big plugs driven in
  4. British Super W series. Found it eBay the other day for a good price.
  5. Just making sure, this the book? I’m in Alberta & can sell you one. I brought some from Ken at National Farm Show in 2018. Just send me a message if interested.
  6. Having read about this show on this forum, figured it was a good show to attend. If your at all interested in farming, its got to the best show to attend ever! Just blown away with vast amount of stuff to see. Like most of us on this forum, we have interest in red power. But it was great to see all colours, stuff never seen, never heard of or known that was even made. For the size of it, it runs very well. Some sort of transportation is needed if walking days are behind you.
  7. The previous owner used wood strips to try hold what was left of the foam on the inner fenders. Dad worked away at last month when he felt up to it. He got new foam kit installed today from Fehr’s. Added car audio sound damping to piece around window that looks at pto area. He also did the sheet metal that comes into the cab. I know there is vise grips for inner door handle, haha. Havent found anyone that has them for the white cab yet. I just put them there incase the door(s) got closed with someone inside with no handle. Dad thought the L series IH trucks used a square drive handle.
  8. Been awhile since posted anything on this project. Got rid of most muck from clutch housing to drawbar. Use screwdriver, pick, scrapper, wire brush & varsol. Looks million times better. Replaced orings in spools, most rock hard.

    Cab kits

    From reading this forum, decided to use Fehr. Ordered their foam kit, cowl cover, pedal kit & rubber molding that goes under the seat for the 766. Since this tractor doesnt have a factory installed 3pt hitch, have no need for hole to be cut out for handle. When I called Fehr, asked if they could not cut that hole. Guy on the phone said give me a minute, he came back & said sure thing. He asked couple times, you sure no 3pt hitch? I said Im sure, no hole please. Week later box parts arrive with no hole as I asked for. I will tell anyone looking for interior to use Fehr.
  10. Like Dave said, need a smart TV or something like a Roku to convert it. I split the cost of MLB subscription with my sister. I’m in Alberta & she is Ontario. I have wasted $ on dumber stuff, plus next to no commercials.
  11. Why isn’t I, O & W not part of the letter series? Last time I checked those are letters. Also the 4 & 6 were built in the same factory as A thru M & share a lot of the same parts.
  12. What was the idea of the square baler needing an engine? The tractor didnt have enough power? All the square balers that I have been around used the pto to power them. Thanks for showing me different farming equipment. Nice job on restoring your baler, something to be very proud of Tony.
  13. The TV/Radio station WGN was started my one of the McCormick’s. Not sure which book I have that I read that info. If I find will update this.
  14. Thanks, I had tried it there but it didn’t just fit right. Once I took the gauges out to wash it. Could see my issue, for some reason the spline shaft moved towards the center of the dash. Which didn’t allow room for the spacer. My first time working on a 66 series. Have only been around a 100 Hydro as kid that neighbor has & this 766.
