  1. Also out. Still haven't cancelled the room yet, but guess I better get to it.
  2. Good on you. That was surely a BTO rig in it's day. It amazes me how many of those trucks were still in use for so long. An attest to IH toughness.
  3. Don't know how rare (probably aren't) as I have a few left over from my younger days. One just like yours @welkerfarmsfancame in a "Farm Country" set I got as a kid and the other has a loader on it. I got those in the very early 90's as a kid.
  4. X2 on this. My 806 sat for a year on a slight incline and I had no steering when I started it up. Did this and fixed my problem. Be aware, it will most assuredly spurt a good bit of fluid out when it picks up!
  5. You find all the good stuff. I can't even find a penny on the sidewalk these days.
  6. Picked up both books at RPRU. Haven't taken the time to read them yet but looking forward to it.
  7. I've heard such. Personally not an issue for me, as the most "modern" IH I own is a 1256.
  8. The Shell CNH containers (gallons, quarts) look like the Shell containers at any other auto or supply store, but black. My local CIH dealer (chain) doesn't intend to handle the Viscosity stuff anymore. I was personally kind of over Hytran, as it's tough to stomach over $100 for a 5 gallon bucket; but I will miss the No. 1 SAE 30 engine oil.
  9. This. Worth every penny. Have done this on my 806 & 1256. Makes things a whole lot less messy of a filter change.
  10. I enjoyed it (my 3rd RPRU) but like others thought it was a little spread out and less vendors than the other RPRUs I've attended. In seeing pictures posted by other I missed quite a few things, but overall seemed like a good show. Got to the grounds Thursday morning during the downpour which made things a little miserable for a bit. Friday was absolutely a perfect day. Didn't go Saturday as we left out from Carbondale about 8 am and drove all the way back to Tx.
  11. Yeah, sure, that's it.....guess that some expressions are lost on some folks.
  12. My thoughts exactly. Have one with almost 300k on the clock and still runs like a top.
  13. Won't make much difference in your tractor. I can no longer stomach the cost of HyTran personally, and have since switched to Shell Rotella HD fluid. But even the "cheap" stuff would work for your Cub.
  14. "Wrong" by factory/originality standards, but a fellow can do as they wish with their own machine. Not my cup of tea but not my tractor.
  15. No idea Brian. I couldn't get much info out of the guy - he wasn't in much of a friendly mood to say the least.
