  1. Hello everyone. I'm new here and this is my first post. Im not sure if this belongs here but I got a killer deal on this IH #2 cart this weekend. The pictures are when I got it home. Does anyone know anything about these. I. Done a small bit of research and it seems like the early ones dont have a data tag. Also if anyone knows if these tires are original that be awesome. Thanks guys and gals.
  2. Ok so i started a thread with more background info, and the research i did on the harmonic damper, and you can find that here. But as i continue on the tractor ill share it here.. this is what it looked like when i started using it. And it was sitting for about 2years.
  3. Ran across some older IH OEM U.S. Army K-7 truck manuals for 1 ton and 2 1/2 ton. I have to admit I was looking at some yellow paint track loaders for a smoking deal. In the process I did locate these and other yellow original Manuals and can have them all if I buy the loaders. Wife, loaders, wife, loaders? .... Hum, I'll get back to ya on that one. 🤣
  4. Looking for info on rd450. has 4bbl intake manifold. Anyone have any experience ditching the old tea kettle governed carb and retrofitting with a newer style carb? And what did you use?
  5. I have wanted the opportunity to take these photos for a long time. Following the Marshalltown show, this was my chance with all of them out and washed up. This is a nice spot on the east side of my farmstead. Enjoy!
  6. Morning from the Mitten State (Michigan) Hows everyone's Mornings going? I wanted to stop-by and Ask Does anyone know the Total amount of International 4568s Built? There is someone I know who has one and wants to sell, Has some sort of engine problem But I am trying to Discuss with him *NOT* To Part it out, Just curious how many are actually still out there Running on the original engines I've been looking for one for Years Now & haven't been able to find one, Especially near/In Michigan. (Can't afford one Right now) Thanks.
  7. So first off I have never posted anything to a forum ever. So I have no idea if I’m in the right area. I pulled this cab off an old 806 I’m putting a clutch in the owner doesn’t want it. I was going to scrap the cab and I pulled the glass out. The glass that is broken is the right side pane, the rear, and the upper door glass ps. If there’s no interest I’ll take it to the scrap yard by Friday. Email me phil2875g@gmail.com. I’m thinking $200. obo... thanks
  8. Found this guy on Youtube I used to watch, Crazy some of the stuff he did But he Surely knew what he was talking about... Looked up that Dozer he had IH TD-20 Dozer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RGiptFLKSg Didn't find much... Tractor data didn't show much but tractors.fandom did... apparently, 2,963 units built from 58-61 That was before my Time, I grew up on Old Michigans / Clarks, Terex's, IH, etc being a Concrete/Construction family. P.s are there any old Heavy Equipment shows in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio?
  9. Hello, I'm having some problems with a 1984 UK ih 885xl. The problem is with the 3pt lift. Basically it is slow to lift. Raise the lever and it could take 10/20 seconds or more before it will lift up. Revving up the engine helps sometimes but not always. It doesn't matter whether there is a load or not. An other thing is, it drops really quick and violently. The two things may be linked. Once the lift has gone up and you drop down the lever, the lift just drops (not the full way to the ground, to the position you have the lever at) there is no resistance to the drop. Seems more or less free fall to me. An other thing that may be related is if look at the lever linkages under the tractor there is one rod that is not connected to anything. I've tried to take pictures of it. The rod is leaning on the axle. We have had the hydraulic filter and fuild changed and a mesh part that was in where the filter us changed to because it had split. It a new tractor to us. Only on the farm a few months. Apart from the lift problem is a great little tractor. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  10. Just bought a IH TD7E Crawler that has the SN plate on the left side of front seat that is so worn out that it cannot be read. I have been told that it is also stamped on the upper right hand side near the rear face of rear main frame but I cannot locate that area. Can someone give me some help of where that location is?
  11. Has anyone installed an overflow tube in the carb float bowl? Specifically for the Marvel Schebler TSX series, I'd be very interested in any info or tips on this from someone who has done it. The background - I've had an ongoing problem with flooding on my IH 444. I know I need to go over the whole fuel system, tank to inlet screen, to make it clean, but I figured this would be a useful backup. With an overflow tube, if the needle or float does get stuck, the gas would run out on the ground instead of into the intake manifold, stalling out the engine. (And trying to restart a flooded engine has resulted in ignition problems as well). I've done this on a motorcycle before, a Kawasaki Concours. Known for an occasional bent connecting rod from a combustion chamber full of liquid gasoline after the gas petcock went bad and the float valve also stuck. So it was a fairly common mod in the group of Concours owners, as insurance against engine damage. The basic idea is drilling out a hole in the bottom of the float bowl, and pressing in a brass tube. The top of the tube has to be higher than the normal fuel level. But on the Concours, I had instructions from someone who had done it and documented it. Very handy. So if someone has experience with this on a carb similar to what I have on my 444, I'd sure appreciate hearing from you! Keith
  12. I'm looking for some information on 6788s that I can't seem to find anywhere. I would like to buy one so I'm curious about a couple of things. What is the actual top road speed of one? I have an original broucher that says they only do 16 but the Nebraska tractor test says they do 20. Next is what is the axle size? I've heard a couple of different things. We have a 3588 that was bought new by my grandfather and the rear end is not built heavy enough for what we need and was wondering how the 6788 or 6588 would compare since they are set on the 88 series and not the 86 series like 3588 is. Finally, if the engine is completely rebuilt from the ground up, how much power can you get out of the dt466 safely? The 7488 was at 235 hp but I didn't know if anyone had any experience in this area. Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
  13. Hello everyone - Greetings from Charlotte, NC. Unfortunately, my father passed away recently (he was 58) and I'm left with three Internationals: 1966 806D (pictured), 1967 806D, 1974 1466 These tractors were never show ponies - always work horses on a dairy. He bought the '66 806 before I was born (I'm 29). Because of this, they're all in need of a good amount of work - particularly the 806s, they both need a new clutch. I don't want to sell the tractors - I'd like to keep them and restore as I find time & money. Although I spent the first 20 years of my life milking cows, stacking hay, and cutting silage - I stepped away from that after college and now work in engineering. It's safe to say that these old tractors inspired my fascination with engineering and mechanical stuff. My first goal is to get them all running - some have been sitting for a few years, but were all running when parked. The '66 806 just required a new battery and a shot of ether to fire right up. I suspect the others will be the same. This will take years of work and tons of money, but hopefully it'll be worth it in the end. I'm sure I'll need the help and support of this community. Pictures of the other tractors to come shortly. Thanks, -Chad
  14. Howdy, I'm new here but not new to the Red World! I am currently in the middle of restoring a "L54-A" plow to use with my 1953 Cub. The "Correct Police" may squawk at the "L54-A" identification, but I choose to label it thus since my plow is composed of components from both the Lowboy L-54 and the regular Cub 54-A Grader plow. That said, I have also posted a video of my progress so far on my youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/ourpassthyme I look forward to enjoying this site and getting to know some of the others here. -Tom The direct link to the video can be found here:
