  1. I thought the 815 was pretty bad.
  2. My 14 has a bad transmission. Really loud and acts like it in park while driving. Is it practical to get a whole transmission from a scrap yard? Anything to look out for on that? The engine is weak as well. I was thinking of getting a combine engine to put in it. I don't think the tractor is worth it but it has no value the way it is. This is the first " big" tractor I owned and I really do like it.
  3. Been hauling out of the field with the 2+2 and the Case 120 . I find it kind of funny last night I got stuck with a Kilbros 555 wagon behind the 120. I went and unhooked the 2+2 from the other wagon and hooked it to the stuck one. Put it in gear and out it went fully loaded and it almost to its axle. Its not apples to apples but the old 2+2 does mean business when it comes to pulling!
  4. Does this M have a 2 speed rear end? My H has a different lever on it for the 2 speed.
  5. I have a place I am cleaning up. There is a old truck on it says International on the running board. I was wondering if anyone had any idea what it is? I would like to find a good home for it as I'd like not to scrap it.
  6. I know they are not the same, but which one could pull more if all things were equal? Weight, speed, and ground conditions.
  7. Ran across this on Craigslist, sounds like there could be some good restoring parts! https://ottumwa.craigslist.org/grd/d/centerville-estate-auction/6895208018.html https://www.wagner-dentauctions.com/2019/06/01/clintswantrustauction/
  8. Thank you for the information. That old girl is pristine inside. I certainly don't take care of things like I would like to. One thing I am super particular about is using ether to clean out the hydraulic couplers and ends. I think contamination is a bigger issue than oil change frequency. I use a ton of ether.
  9. How do I adjust the draft control on my 856? I never use it so it doesn't bother me if works or not. Cultivating time is coming if it ever quits raining.......
  10. One injector line is leaking on the backside of the pump (never a front one). I have several of the teflon seals. What is the size difference between the teflon that has the ring on it and the one that doesn't? There is both types lines because I got one from the salvage yard. I am having a hard time getting the ring over the teflon after it is on the bolt.
  11. Bad blow by and I think I can hear a chirp. I had a head rebuilt on it 20 plus years ago the machinist that did it didn't have a tool for the seat. I took it to the dealer and they did it. I installed it and it had a bad chirp in it. Turned out they didn't get the seat all the way in. It sounds like that but not as bad. The blow by left a puddle of oil after being on a grain vac for 5 hours.
  12. What would it take to put a 1460 engine into a 1486? Would that be a bad thing? Anything to look out for? Thank you for your help!
  13. With all the snow we have and slick roads would chains on a 1486 work OK? Was thinking of putting them on the duals.
  14.  Yes it is the same

    Also it would be an 8 row one.
