  1. A common problem when the expansion plugs were removed, was oil seepage at the axle caps. it raises the oil level in the rear axles and can create leaks because these caps don't have the seal ring in the caps like the later tractors that didn't have the fill plugs in the axle.
  2. 06-56 I-model tractors could be a Standard or a Wheatland model. the Standard could be equip a variety of ways, basically any configuration of add-ons. A true Wheatland 06-56 are actually kind of hard to find. They were PTO delete, T/A delete, Hitch delete, would not have the adjustable front axle option and would not have big tires. would be 18.4-34's or 18.4-38's. wheatlands had few options, could have single or dual had. outlets, could be equip with duals, could have the rear platform extension and or equip. with a cab.
  3. There are 4 different variations of the wedgelock tool. I have the bulletins on these and the first variation as Brian shows lasted just a few months before the 2nd. variation was released.
  4. We live about 15 miles from Gary. Dads bought some tractors from him off AuctionTime. Great person and he always represents his stuff well. He always takes lots of pictures of the items he lists. Wouldn’t worry a bit.
  5. From what I've seen somewhere in 1969 the IH bolts started to fade. By 1970 a majority of bolts went to WP stamp for West Pullman. Even in 1970 you will find a few IH bolts in certain areas.
  6. One of very few resto’s getting the correct bolts!
  7. Since this is a 1967, it could be ordered with flat tops, crown fenders (clam shell) or fender delete. Does yours have the flasher light bracket and also your tachometer will tell a story, can you get a picture of it?
  8. those pumps wouldn't be much of a problem if they would have had a charge pump in my opinion.
  9. There is a lot of differences in those early 06 tractors. I like the Wheatland you have!
  10. Grain markets crashing didn’t help somewhat.
  11. It was the nicest tractor there. I think it went for 5,500.00
  12. 1026 was around 13,500, 706 propane was around the 7,500.00 and the 1256 went for 3,700.00 had C1 block. Girrardi has results on there page.
  13. Yes, as you mentioned the M&W setup used the original hole. The IH dealer installed setup was moved forward. The T-606 turbo is what is originally on the IH manifold. The IH setup is sought after.
