  1. West Farms I think that this front end came off a Farmall A, or Super A, or Farmall 100, or 130. GT&T
  2. IH 88 You mentioned that the fuel flow, "To the filters is good". Have you checked the fuel flow, "To the injection pump? I have seen trash build up in the banjo fitting bolt and restrict the flow. GT&T
  3. Eason That is a very good photo and has excellent detail even when enlarged. 80 years later, that is quite remarkable. Do you know the location where it was taken? Are the buildings still there? Fred
  4. Brewcrew What I have done is to go to a salvage yard get some lights from a salvage combine. You can replace the sealed beams with halogen bulbs, or flood lights or LED bulbs. GT&T
  5. Mitch Welcome to the forum. I think you will find this is a wonderful forum with a wealth of information. GT&T
  6. 756 Puller What snoshoe said right on. I hope you are doing well. Fred PS I just read your 2nd. post. You should be able to replace the bolt in the release bearing as well, without splitting the tractor.
  7. Paystar Thank You for helping to clear up what I was trying to say. You are absolutely right. GT&T
  8. Nathanyel Welcome to the forum. You may try the Wisconsin Historical Society, they have a large volume of records from IH that they make available to anyone looking for information about International Harvester. I wish you luck. GT&T
  9. Bob and others, I have one that right now is doing what you are experiencing, I found mine was leaking at a poor crimp on the hydraulic hose. After checking the hose size, I found that there had been a size #8 hose installed with size #10 fittings. My thoughts are that the hose may be restricting the flow and causing a pressure rise. GT&T
  10. Adam The first thing that I would do is to stop the combine in the field, in the cut, and then crawl under it and look where the beans are located on the ground. This will tell you where they are coming out. There may be a " shoe " on the rear of the grain head that slides on entrance to the cylinder as the header is raised and lowered. This "shoe" should be spring loaded to seal the opening to the cylinder. If the hinge is rusted and does not move, then when the header is down, there may be an opening for the beans to come out.

  11. Brady Boy and Auger Creek and all the others with birthdays today Happy Birthday, and many more. Your birth date is a date, that will be remembered forever. GT&T
  12. Glyn Welcome to the forum. Having worked on quite a few of these series tractors, I have noticed that the shift linkage on the left console will get dirty corroded and begin to drag when you shift gears. I have seen that when you shift from one gear to another that this dragging will pull the shift linkage from one gear partially into position that it will be dragging the teeth of another gear. My suggestion would be to get some WD-40 or chain lube or other thin spray lubricant, and lubricate all the linkage under the left console. I would also loosen the four screws,
  13. Mudfly Thank you for that compliment and also for taking the time to say Thank You! You would be surprised to know how many times that someone has asked for information or help, and never even acknowledged that someone answered their question. I have used your method of obtaining help many times and it has always helped me. GT&T
  14. IH fanforlife Thanks for that beautiful picture, it is so clear that I think I will be able to drill it just like you said and install a small roll pin or drill bit. ( Through the computer.) That is a good Idea. GT&T
  15. Mudfly If you need more help, you may try Google for AutoZone, O'Rileys , Advance or other parts stores. AutoZone will have rental tools if you need something special. Glad you are going now and please keep us informed of your progress. I'm also a combat veteran from VietNam, thank you and your wife for her service to us and our country. What is your destination? I would like to follow along as you go. GT&T
