966 hydro serial number help


Recommended Posts

I bought some tractors a year ago and got a 966 Hydro parts tractor in the deal. The serial number is 2510174U017968. According to Tractor Data that makes this 966 a 1973 model. It’s my understanding that the 966 hydro and 1066 hydro models stopped in 1972 and the Hydro 100 started in 1973. How can I have a 1973 model 966 Hydro? Do I have my facts wrong about year models? Thanks for all info.

 Here is a picture from the 1974  buyers guide.

According to your serial number your tractor was built in early ‘73 and Hydro 100s were probably started in July or August ‘73 as a ‘74 model. It was also when they started the red deluxe cabs.

Thanks for your help. If I’m understanding you correctly, IH made 966 Hydro and  1066 Hydro in 1973. I did not know that. Thanks for the info.

here is a pic of the tractor. I’m going to try to fix her. Big project, but I like the tractor.

Id give it try and see if she goes get the engine to run jack it all up and see if she spins the wheels before anything else!
