IH 756 w/Case IH 2355 loader


Long Farms

Recommended Posts

After i got it home i noticed a few things. Someone moved the 55 series loader brackets way back and mounted them to frame rail and clutch housing like the 50s should have been. It sits back farther than it normally should but i like where its at. I have some 8 bolt hubs and 10.00s ready to go. These 7.50x18 are odd duck wheels and tires. Wish they were 8 bolt, even more rare. Guy i know i already screaming at me to swap my 34s for his 38s. Kinda like how i dont have to step up on this 756 as is. Pto brakes are shot. Fender lights work. I was more amazed about that fact than the front end was tight and unwelded. Need to find a bucket for it. Think my cih 2350 bucket has the fixed mounts. Have seen some that are adjustable.

Need to find some 8 bolt hubs for mine too.  Have 9.5L15 on the front now.  Had 16.9-38 rears.  Very well worn old deep treads.    Tube finally came out the sidewall.  Found some newer worn deep treads last week.  18.4-38.  Started putting those on last Friday when I decided now would be a good time to fix the leaking axle seals.   Waiting on parts now.  Spose I better move the fenders in.  Can't fit my hand between.  Need a PTO rebuild also.

66 series fenders, though!

I know it, but its very rare to see a true factory 56/26 series rops w/fenders. Its alot easier to put rops fenders on brackets than it is bracket fenders on rops. They do not interchange quick and easy. Im thinking of pulling it off and put open station fenders on it.

How many had the 8 lug wheels? Mine has them on it. I’ve been wondering what mine would look like with my 2350 loader on it. I think I’m actually going to sell it and find a nice smaller loader for it. That’s a lot of loader for it, not that it looks bad or won’t handle it. I was thinking maybe a nice bush hog or westendorf or something like that. I even have a skid steer adapter made by work saver for my 2350. Because I have all the skid steer attachments it was cheaper to buy that so I could use my forks and bale spikes. It’s on my 766 now and fills it up.

Mo mule, im sure someone out there has a 2250 and wants to trade up for a 2350. Not many had factory 8 bolt hubs. 756 in the brochure and manuals had 8 bolt hubs though. 

Got a call early this morning thinking a telemarketer was starting early or is it late in India? Any ways, nice older man was on the line. Said he saw my local classified ad and was wondering  if i bought parts as well as sold them. Said sure i do. He went on on how he use to farm cotton but sold all his land years ago and now its all built up in houses and strip malls. Said he always used IH. Mentioned he wanted to clean out his old shop and had a few parts. Said he had 2 sets of fenders off the last 2 farmalls he had. Tractors and equipment was long gone. Im thinking great clam shell fenders. Guy had no way of sending pics and i had little to do today so i road tripped it.....and yeah......

Removed loader brackets, and ROPS. Now im finally getting it cleaned up. Added front mount hyd hook ups. The check valves back one minus the junky cobbled up hyd hoses some genius put on. Im gonna have new ones made and put it back to factory breakaways. 8 bolt 10.00-16s are going on soon. Shifter plate is about to be rebuilt too

Easiest Front end ive ever had to adjust. Took 2 days to break 1 rear wheel clamp bolts and clamps loose. Other side was broke loose, turned around and clamped back down and tire back on in less than 1hr. Added hyd seat, 10.00x16 8 bolt fronts. Rebuilt shifter top plate, got all the dash and instruments lights working. Wish i had a set of 34" wedgelocks again. Thought of maybe going with 15.5 or 16.9 38s.
