  1. The kind codes are well known in the IH built Cub Cadet community. You can identify exactly what machine it was just by the tag. I've always thought someone would surely publish the kind codes for the AG and Industrial lines, but I've never seen any kind of listing.
  2. Lorenzo's looks factory correct to me, here is pic from parts catalog.
  3. I had groin hernia with mesh repair several years ago. About 10 days into recovery damn cows got out and thought I'd be ok to ride the ATV to get them back in. I tore something, felt the sensation of blood rushing. Went back to Dr and he said all was ok, but I think something happen because it is a constant source of pretty sharp pain when I move just wrong. Moral, if Dr says do nothing for 2 weeks, do nothing for 2 weeks.
  4. Yep, alternators and thermostats, takes 3 to get a good one.
  5. I found this place online, they may have what you need. busparts.com home page parking brake parts at busparts.com
  6. I don't think they were recalled. They came out with a roller reel kit for them. Ours had one and it worked very well. It would walk right thru 6 foot tall sudan grass behind our 560. It was about a 8 inch or so rotating drum that replaced the flick bar. It had a jillion rubber flaps bolted to it in a spiral pattern. I found a picture on an old Purple Wave auction.
  7. Depending on year they used either Holley or Prestolite. The Holley uses a Gold Box mounted on the firewall and associated wires to and from it. The Prestolite unit control box is in the bottom of the distributor housing, those only need a hot wire to the coil. Both units use a conventional style coil. There were also governor control units and vacuum advance emission control on some too but nothing too serious to figure out I don't think.
  8. I think you will find that 12V goes to the temperature gauge. There is an Instrument Cluster Voltage Regulator built into the temp gauge. There is Pulsed Voltage tap on the temp guage that feeds the fuel, and oil (if electric) a pulsed on and off average 5 volts. You can check it just with a common test light, you should have constant 12V on one of the temp gauge terminals and you will see the pulsed voltage out to the other gauges, keep in mind you'll see the pulsed voltage on the wires to the senders as well so you'll have to follow the wires to see what goes where.
  9. i've got an HP printer that I have threatened to do exactly that.
  10. Here are my Dad and Grandpa and their new to them used 101 in about 1961. They roaded it 175 miles from Haswell, Colo. to home.. We used it every year until 1984.
  11. You might take a look at these guys. They sell the original material ready to install, and you can buy the new foam as well. https://leather-auto-seats.com/
  12. Can anyone identify this 1910 era car next to the Buick. Picture was taken in White City KS on April 13, 1910
  13. Here is my favorite AR platform rifle: Spikes Tactical
  14. Maybe I'm not understanding correctly, but isn't #7 what you are needing? Supercedes to #87382012

    I"ve always wondered about this, surely IH didn't keep the McCormick knotter and let the Deering knotter go for no reason, they must have kept the McCormick one for some reason, sure would like to have been in on that discussion.
  16. You can't easily get the ones with the sediment bowl any more, but any of the common auto parts stores can get the non sediment bowl fuel pumps for those IH engines. There are several combinations of fittings but they all will fit on the engine correctly. The NAPA B0150P is probably the one to get, it has pipe thread for both in and out, you can adapt that to about anything you need to.
  17. If it's a 1966 (is this a pickup?), it should be an IH BG241 or BG264. The 258 (no BG designation) was the AMC 6 cyl and didn't come until 1972 in the Scouts and pickups. Far as I know the starter is the same for both of the BG engines and is an industry #4149. Both NAPA and Advance/Carquest list them.
  18. Here is my MD, just like MCC says:
  19. Built in 1903, Elbert County, Colorado. Sadly, tornado took it in 2004. Concrete block, made onsite one at a time. 90x45 On the place I grew up, sister still lives there.
  20. We had an "Adam Henry" list at the parts store I worked at.
  21. Here is my Trojan Utility Speed Patrol.
  22. My 3788 has both a clutch switch and a "park" switch. I have had some trouble with the park switch at times. If you are jumping from the battery cable terminal to the small solenoid terminal and the starter spins with out engaging you have starter drive problems. If you just jump the 2 big terminals the solenoid won't shift the drive into the flywheel.
  23. Very interesting. We shipped cream in cans as well. For us it was Tuesday mornings, we didn't have to ride the bus because we could ride to town with dad. Freight truck picked up the cream in front of the IH dealer in town. So began my facination with all things IH. I got to be friends with the owners wife and she would save me 1 of each of the brochures when they got some new ones. I still have them. I would check out all the new pickups and sit on all the new tractors. This would have been the 62 thru around 65 era.
