  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 into the cast housing where the rock shaft would go. Curious, if your tractor had a 3pt hitch would people call it a Row Crop?
  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. Went out to junk pile, have couple L's out there for parts. Sure enough 1950 to 1952 L series have same square. Likely lots of other vehicles used the same. Borrowed couple handles for the 766.
  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.
  9. 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.
  15. Any pics of inside the cab? I have white cab 766 & curious how things look in yours as this was kinda of a mess.
  16. I took the steering column out of the tractor to clean up from the leaking steering hand pump. Got from the clutch housing to hitch clean up pretty good with varsol now. But when I lifted it out the door of the cab this spacer fell out on the floor. Holy cow is that column heavy! Here couple pictures of the spacer/bushing. It’s 3/8” thick, 1 1/2” wide with a 3/4” hole. I looked thru the parts book couple times & dont see it. Any idea where it goes would be great, thanks.
  17. The filler tube idea must of be passed on from the letters series engineer group to the 66 series guys. Since this 766 we got here doesn’t have a factory 3pt hitch I was able my own. Went to local hardware store & came up with this.
  18. Appears number is from the Kenosha WI area. By the phone numbers I can make out, looks like north of Yorkton SK area. Image most of these items would be a tough sale locally, might be worth having an USA auction company sell them off. Kinda surprised BJ hasnt taken this down yet as for sale post. Carl when are you planning on coming West?
  19. Don’t care for Girard new shipping process, Shipping Saint seems to have lost my item from sale 2 & costs more to ship.
  20. I looked up the serial number that was in the ad. Info from warranty says it belongs to a farmer in Nebraska. Had a warranty claim at 200 hrs, the add says has 0 hrs. Wrong serial number in the ad?
