  1. Need carburetor application for IH Carb.

    7288 Thank you for the information about SPIC Service Parts Information Catalogue. The carburetor that I have would look like the first one you have pictured. If you could copy the carburetor P/N 's I would think that it may be handy when I have to rebuild a carburetor for another engine. GT&T
  2. Breathing life into a 1981 Cargostar 1850B

    Madmack I am thinking that if you can get the brakes to hold or work, after pumping them up, the first thing I would do is to do a very good job of bleeding out air in the system. I have worked on these brakes and they are difficult to bleed. You will need to be very persistant. A good method of bleeding is called "Back bleeding". You will need to build an adapter that allows you to hook your pressure bleeder to each of the wheel cylinders, one at a time. Start bleeding at the farthest wheel cylinder, purge the air all the way back to the master cylinder. This can take quite a lot of DOT 3 brake fluid, but after bleeding this way the system will be full of clean air free fluid. After bleeding the furthest wheel cylinder close off the bleeder, and move to the next bleeder. By the time you get to the Hydrovac you will be surprised how good the brakes will work. GT&T
  3. Need carburetor application for IH Carb.

    Lightning Thank you for looking up that information. I haven't found a listing for a 560 like that but it may be a replacement carburetor from IH. It would be nice to know if in fact that it was a replacement P/N. GT&T
  4. Need carburetor application for IH Carb.

    Thank you for looking up that information. The number is on the brass tag that is riveted to the carburetor body. What is Spice catalogue that you refer to, I didn't know if that was a typo or if it is catalogue that I haven't heard of? GT&T
  5. 86 series 4post value?

    Ace I can't say what the value would be on an open station 4 post tractor, compared to an 86 series with an enclosed heated & A/C equipped cab. I would certainly think that at my age, and if I had to work the tractor all day in the hot and cold, a cab would be quite valuable. What area, state, are you from? Do people in your area do any tractor work in hot, cold, rainy, or dusty conditions? How is the tractor equipped? PTO, T/A, 3 -point hitch, how many auxiliary valves 1,2,3,4,? GT&T
  6. I have a good used carburetor that I do not know what it came off of. It is an IH carbruetor, that resembles one off a 706, 806, 766, 856 etc. It has an electric solenoid. The IH Part No. is 388036R92 Would some one who knows how to navigate the IH parts system, please help me identify what engine or tractor or equipment this carburetor was used on? GT&T Thank you for taking the time to look this up for me.☺
  7. IH856 diesel wiring help needed

    Bloomer If you cannot get your tractor to start with batteries that are are properly charged, I would begin by testing each connection with a test light while trying to crank the engine. If there is a connection that the test light glows, that connection is a poor, open, connection. The test light in the hands of a skilled mechanic is a powerful tool. GTT
  8. IH856 diesel wiring help needed

    Bloomer I would highly recommend that when you get your new batteries, that you replace both of them at the same time, even though you have one good one now. The reason for this is that when the batteries are being charged, their internal resistance will vary and will allow one battery to be charged more than the other. I would keep the good battery for use in an application that only used one battery. GTT
  9. Inter 454 Drive Problem

    Matt That series of tractors could have been equipped with creeper gears. You may be on to something, I do not know how they operated or how to tell if the tractor was equipped with one. I will have to look that up, thanks for suggesting. GT&T
  10. Inter 454 Drive Problem

    Tony Even if you are hung in low range you should be able to have 4 speeds in the speed transmission. If you are unable to get these 4 speeds, then you have some linkage problem in or to the speed transmission. Can you tell, will the tractor pull a load at the slow speed? Are you able to load the engine with the brakes applied? If the engine can be loaded then I would think that the clutch is OK. GT&T
  11. Inter 454 Drive Problem

    Tony Welcome to the forum. Ii think you may have some linkage unhooked or not making the proper movement under the transmission cover. You can remove the sheetmetal cover with 4 screws, then operate the shift lever and see what " Isn't happening". If the shifter isn't moving the linkage far enough towards High range you may have to adjust the yokes. GT&T
  12. horn seeder

    TN Hillbilly I looked this up on Google and I hope that it will link for you: It is a canvas bag that has a strap that you sling around your neck. The bottom of the bag has a long horn shaped tube attached to it. You walk across a field and swing the horn and the seed flows out of the tube and you can cover a swath about 20 to 40 feet wide, depending on seed size and wind etc. The tube has a baffle in the inside that is adjustable to allow better control of seed flow.

  13. Sam I have really enjoyed looking at the work and skilled craftsmanship that you have accomplished on this tractor. I have done some of this type of work, making steel parts for corroded or destroyed parts. It is very difficult to do but is highly rewarding when you get the results that you have. Congratulations. Well done. GT&T
  14. horn seeder

    I've been there and done that. I have several very well used Genuine Horn Seeders. I like them a lot. They work well especially when the soil is frozen just enough to keep the mud off your shoes. It also is a lot easier with a 4 wheeler to keep a supply of seed at hand. There is no telling how many acres my dad has seeded this way, in his long life time. GT&T
  15. Are The DEW/BMEWS Lines Still Operational?
