  1. the 1/4 scale 7688 it the cab I'm going to try to remake for the 5488 ps. I believe 100% thats what they had. magnum cab with a IH roof and headliner. the dash I might try to mock up with a 50 series cluster.
  2. I took the time to mount a frond end on to the ol girl to make it so I could move it. Just excited to mate up some things that belong on the front of it!! Found a part number on the front cover of the trans that provides some proof on this thing! also it has a longer input than the magnums like the 50 series so no stub shaft is needed. Progress will be slow with planting around the corner,but thought id post these. this summer I have a rough 5488 with a late 466 and inline pump with water in the oil to overhaul for a doner to this special unit.
  3. I plant to put the whole thing together as close to what it was as possible. parts shouldn't be a problem-lots of magnums out there.
  4. the 5488 powershift IH had at the merger is saved, this is whats left anyways. its the one that was talked about on here that was at a NE iowa tech collage. I plan to put it all back together, It had the axles cut off with a torch to fit the tractor in a van trailer the day after the merger. as you can see. Hyd plumbing and remotes are different than production magnums.
  5. why not leave the magnum fenders on? thats what it would've had. looks like lots left besides paint and interior.
  6. I thought even though its a different color,some like me like to see repowers in anything. This m670 was a gas. Our loader tractor growing up,loaded lots of s*#t with it. Always liked driving it,but didn't like the cold blooded gas engine although it had good power. It ended up with a cracked head and sat for the last 15 years. I've had this project in my head the whole time. I'd like to do a 56 series too. I'm a little more proud of this one just because it's more involved(starter,power steering,and hyd pumps.) The IHs are much easier with all these on the rear. Grew up with lots of yellow,some red,and even a couple deutzs, hope the pics post for me. Luke
