  1. When I put Long Lake, Mo which is on the truck door, in Google Maps no city comes up, but several different townships come up. It would be a KB with that type of grill.

    Here you go, T-7C, TD-7C. I don't know if IH produced any gas T-7C's, they would be very rare.

    Louie,  Someone is on Heavy Equipment Forums, dozer section that has a TD7-C and wants to know volume and type oil for transmission. No one seems to be responding. I had an early TD8-E and you needed to fill  and check in two places, then the newer ones in only one place. I didn't respond because I don't have the proper info for a 7C. Thanks.

  3. I read this post yesterday and it was very interesting, never knew anything about this mist green on 880's. Today I was at a show in Almelund, Mn that was featuring Oliver machinery. Much to my surprise was an 880 "mist green" with a little history about it. I told the guys I was with about what I read on here yesterday.

  4. I never saw one with that shifter missing, guess I can't say that anymore.

    I had two of them and that never gave me any trouble. I replaced the 15C with the blade that is on the 15C on my avatar with another newer and less wore out 15C. The picture on the avatar is the newer 15C with the older blade which I liked better because of the added bars on top of the blade for protection when pushing brush stumps etc. The same picture is on my Heavy Equip Forums avatar.  Much to my surprise a guy from the state of Va who is also on Heavy Eqiuip Forums messaged me asking if I had owned the 15C with that unique blade, I said I did, and much to my surprise, he said he owns it now. In 2016 I  was still in NE Minnesota and traded the 15C for a 624G JD loader to a Wi used equip dealer. He sold the 15C to an Ohio farmer and a few years later sold it to the guy in Va who runs a land clearing business and still uses it. The unique blade is the reason why I found out what happened to it,

  5. Newer Diamond T's, like in the 50's had IH cabs on them like from the R series or maybe even L series. Then they merged with Reo and became Diamond Reo. When I was a kid there were quite a few dump truck Diamond T's with the older style cabs like the one for sale.

  6. Hamm's was different when it was brewed in St. Paul, Mn and was a local beer. It got bought out by Heileman's I think, and the beer tasted different. I don't know who brews it now. They had a lot of beutifull signs for sure.

  7. I started driving bus for a Northern Mn school district in 2007. I substituted for one guy a lot. The bus was a 1999 International 72 passenger bus with the T444. A couple of years later I became a regular route driver, so I never drove the 99 again until 2018. It had been a spare bus since 2011. In 2018 my regular bus went down and I drove the 99 for a month. The bus was badly rusted, but that engine ran like a top. It had never had anything done to it but regular maintenance.

  8. Pertaining to finding the axle ratio. On a lot of the older trucks on the end of the pinion shaft where the yoke is held on with a nut there were numbers stamped in there. One number was the teeth on the pinion which would be the lower number and the other number would be the teeth on the ring gear. Divide the ring gear teeth by the pinion teeth and this gives the ratio.
