  1. Todd That is some beautiful work that you have done. Your Craftmanship is wonderful. Fred
  2. I bet that would really be good if it had been left in the pan about 5 minutes longer. That must be why I have to ask for my bacon Extra Crispy. It's also why all cars aren't painted black. GT&T
  3. IH Forever I've hauled these 3point disc mowers quite a few times, and they are about as hard to load as anything I've hauled. It is about as hard as pushing a rope or chain. I would take several chains and binders, more than you might plan on needing. Also a couple of nylon tie down straps, to hold down the wind screen. Also take the PTO shaft out and put it in the pickup bed. GT&T
  4. Man those are some fine looking tractors and farming operation. Where are you located? IH should have taken their photo shoots at your place. Also I have never seen IH photos that the tractors had enough tires or weights that were customary in the fields. You always had to order tractors with optional tire sizes if you wanted them to perform well. GT&T
  5. Chuckie Welcome to the forum. I can't help with your filter number or source. I might suggest that you post this in the construction forum here on Red Power, there are some very helpful people there and they may get you some more viewers. GT&T
  6. Danny Happy Birthday, hope you have many more. Fred
  7. IHReddrive Wow, you sure have done a beautiful restoration on that 504. The shim idea is excellent and very well done. Congratulations! GT&T
  8. Reichow I might suggest that you jack up one of the rear wheels and rock that wheel back and forth. This will make sure there is no gear loading that is holding pressure against the gears and preventing the gears shifting. You might think about a pickup truck pulling out of a muddy field, when you try to go back to 2 wheel drive, it may not until you push in the clutch and/or shift to neutral. GT&T
  9. Reichow It sounds like the shift linkage is still in low range and the shift lever has jumped out of the shift gate. If you will have someone get in the seat and attempt to shift the lever while you look under the floor board, you can figure which rod and lever needs to be moved what direction to get the linkage in sync. Then move the linkage under the floor board to match the position that the lever is in. I can't put into words what needs to be done, but if I were there I could put it back to working properly, in less time than it has taken me to write this paragraph
  10. Jeff Welcome to the forum. Like Lightingboy has said just above, there is a topic in the truck forum that has some good information about this subject. Here is a link to it if it works: /topic/130134-carb-options-for-a-345-in-a-loadstar/. GT&T
  11. Mike Welcome to the forum. Are you experiencing any chattering in the brakes when you are turning? And like TB5288 has said, what condition are the bearings like in both the pinion shaft and the differential? Have you checked the bearing end play on the bull pinion? GT&T
  12. Hardknocks Have you looked at the paint on the yoke? Could the yoke be bent slightly, and either direction is wrong? Like I said one of mine has a stack of 3/4"flat washers about 1" thick and I have never figured out why. Your idea should work, you may have to add slightly longer bolts. GT&T
  13. Hardknocks Have you looked if you could turn the yoke over? If I remember right mine have a bend in the yoke. GT&T
  14. Hardknocks I have 2 Farmall 656's and one of them has a stack of 3/4" flat washers between the 4 bolts and the tractor bolster. I don't know what the difference is between the two tractors, but the other tractor doesn't have the stacks of washers. GT&T
  15. Hardknocks Would you have an International front axle under a Farmall tractor or vice - versa? GT&T
  16. Memory Welcome to the forum. I don't have the spec's in front of me, however the spec's should be the same as the Farmall and/or International 504. The 2504 is just an industrial version of the 504, and usually will be painted yellow. This is true on all of the International tractors, a prefix of 2 indicates an industrial version. You may want to post this in the General forum, as it will get more hits. GT&T
  17. Dennis On the inside of the cab, under the dash, where the clutch rod attaches to the pedal. There is a plastic bushing that goes over the clutch operating pin that is welded to the pedal. This plastic bushing wears out and will fall out of the clutch rod. When this happens it will allow too much free play to release the clutch. If the clutch has been used a lot with a worn or missing plastic bushing then the steel pin that is welded to the clutch pedal may be worn also. I have one that has 520,000 miles and that is what mine had wrong. GT&T
  18. Look very biodegradable to me. Also resistant to towel heads.
  19. VT You have a wonderful customer who knows how to say Thank You! Cherish these people, they are hard to come by. GT&T

    Nbent Welcome to the forum. I would suggest that you post this in the Construction Forum on this web site, There are many very knowledgeable people at that site and you may get more responses. GT&T
  21. Joe Welcome to the forum. I really have no answer, however may have a suggestion. Dresser bought IH's construction division. Dresser may have been bought by Fiat. And since then I don't have any idea. Hopefully one of these old dealerships may be able to get you a part number and / or source for a starter. Another source would be to try a salvage yard I would suggest that you post this in the Construction Forum on this site, they have large following and know all the salvage yards. You will get a larger amount of viewers there. GT&T

    dog or ?

    I think that these may be made by one of the birds that oldtanker had on his bird feeder. GT&T
  23. Jeff I have used "color back" and it was a good product, expensive, but very good. I have since used clear coat after pressure washing, and had good results. If you do this please give us some before and after pictures. Good luck Fred
  24. I haven't had them offer to give me my money back yet. I have taken a batch of High Flow air couplers back that have leaked and /or won't flow ( some do either or ). When I tried to get them replaced they had quit making or selling them. I replace them with Milton couplers and haven't had one fail yet. I also have had a cherry picker that will leak down, very slowly, it won't even hold itself up empty. I have a 3 Ton floor jack that won't pump up, I just may try to get them exchanged. Thanks for the tip. GT&T
