  1. 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
  2. Mitch Welcome to the forum. I think you will find this is a wonderful forum with a wealth of information. GT&T
  3. 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.
  4. Paystar Thank You for helping to clear up what I was trying to say. You are absolutely right. GT&T
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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. You would want to check this with the
  8. 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
  9. 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,
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Mudfly If you suspicion a leaking head gasket, here is a quick check. With the engine off, fill the radiator full to the top, then start the engine and while running make sure the radiator is full. Then while the engine is running, with radiator cap off, look for bubbles or for the coolant level rising and over flowing. You will have some over flowing due to the coolant expanding from the engine warming up. GT&T
  14. Mudfly Have you checked the radiator coolant level? You mentioned that the storage tank or reservoir was full. The radiator cap is under pressure and cannot be checked when the engine is hot as the coolant will blow out when the pressure is released. This will scald you and anyone near the vehicle. The reason I ask is, it is possible for the engine to be low on coolant, even though the storage tank or reservoir is full. I am on line and I will post this and wait while you check. I have more information, but will be writing it while you are answerin
  15. Binder Dan This sounds so obvious that I am reluctant to ask? Do you know that there is a screen in the PTO suction tube? It could be stopped up with the same trash that was in your hydraulic filter and filter bypass screen. The whole hydraulic system will have remnants of what got through the filter bypass screen. This filter bypass was running open when the filter was plugged. That screen is not going to stop anything except large particles, when you start and run the system with new HyTran, this will flush out the system and the screen in the PTO pickup tube may be p
  16. I'm sure that I can smell this through the computer! 😷 And mask! GT&T
  17. VT I'm pretty sure that is an old style of air governor. If it is, the newer style will be a direct replacement, even though it won't look the same. Hope this helps. GT&T

    Tbn Welcome to the forum. There is a Construction Forum on this site that has a very wide following. If you will go back to the "Boards" heading and go to the Construction section, there are a very large amount of people that are very knowledgeable on construction equipment. I feel like you will get a much better response there. GT&T
  19. Bitty Thank you for being there and helping this neighbor, God bless you. The best help is being there quickly and doing what you can to save what you can. GT&T
  20. Mighty 1206 Thanks for posting this information. It is very good to know. I'm glad to know that there are business that can replace some of the parts that are no longer available. GT&T

    I 250

    Eason I had seen your post and I didn't recognize the model number, but after seeing Mr. Plows post I can see that if the last zero had been left off then, the model could easily be an Industrial 2500. This would make the tractor very close to a 574. I have a 2500 and also the manuals. With exception to the things like front axles, rear axles, grille and tire and wheel sizes, the 574 service manual should be able to cover much information. Hope this helps. Fred
  22. Scott Welcome to the forum. My first thought is you have a pinion bearing problem. When the tractor engine is loading the transmission the pinion bearings are loaded in a positive direction, but when the momentum of the tractor is loading the engine then the pinion bearings are loaded in the opposite direction. This will change position of all the gears on the transmission shaft, which is where the noise is coming from. I would recommend pulling the top transmission cover and inspecting the bearings and gears, before you do more damage to the tractor. GT&T
  23. Don't hold back, tell us how you really feel.
  24. Minnesota Farmall Like Iowaboy has said those are both IH. The mower has been modified by removing the lift handle for the bar, and adding a hydraulic cylinder. I have one exactly like it and it too has been modified by my dad years ago. The hydraulic cylinder addition makes them a joy to use. GT&T
