Whats another one to the pile....


Recommended Posts

Cant rip it off too quick but i can see in my mind hauling it across the scale. Such a hard to find axle too. More than likely it was the rare narrow tread center tube and they just destroyed it. Ive only seen 2-3 in person. My ant filled tach shows 4199hrs and i believe it. Alot of the wear spots are still tight. Clutch pedal, brake pedals shifters, hyd levers still fairly tight. Have it field stripped to hot wash tomorrow. Is this key cable factory or some add on to keep the steering wheel holders from loosing it?

Waiting on new turbo decals and hay to get off the meadow to get it out for some good photo shoot pics. Swapped out a few parts too. If anyone has any IH stamped mufflers let me know im needing a few

Added a set of front mount hyd manifolds and washed off oil. Ill be damned if clutch booster didnt start to leak while it was drying off. Back to CIH for more O rings. 

Winter Project was put up for sale.  Got held up by some mexican bandits. The short lil pepper shot everything but himself! Gettn rough in Texas....

You find this one in Texas too?   Another late model with the bolted plate around the ether button???    Lots of stuff just not used enough anymore to keep up on the maintenance.

Nate it came from South TX. Its a '71 model. Only 351 built after this one. Still don't have a '69 model.

The way your odds are the next one or two you should land a '69!!   Lol

These '71 56s have a few differences Im finding. The bolt on ether plate makes it easier to change hand pumps and carried over into 66s. They had a 1 piece plate though. Local friend has a '69 model. Only one i know of locally.

ye gods the trash under the seat is worse than if the 14 had a 234 picker mounted on it

 

is there any rhyme or reason as to why some 14s have hydraulic seat with tilt and some  the fixed column?  I think every 1256 I've been around that seemed original had both

Even found some lizard eggs under there or i hope they were lizard eggs. As for tilt vs non tilt and mechanical vs hydraulic suspension it was all options that could be any combination of.

The more projects i see you do the more i like this style of restoration! I dont know why i use to think a restoration wasnt complete without paint job! Keep up the good work!

Brian, i dont have the funds to 100% restore every IH I drag home. I figured that out on the 1st 1456 i bought and restored. No way was going to afford what i had planned. Saw that time was running out to find and collect what I wanted. I have to sell a few I fix up to keep the ball rolling. CIH is hitting older parts with beyond ridiculous prices these days. Hardest part on restoring a tractor is finding one, and second is paying for it and whats to come. Guys always knock tire condition on a 40yr old tractor. The fact you can but new tires but you cant buy a new 1456 doesnt register with some. I have from now on to fully restore what i have in my collection. I like going through them and getting them mechanically 99% and leave them unpainted. Alot easier to use and continue to fix up. Too many half ass restorations with new paint and rubber on a worn out leaky tractor.

I’m a little late to the thread but looks like another nice 1456 to fix up. 

Except the crap under the seat that would not be fun to deal with

Yep, looks like it came from Weimans with that on there.

I got a truck off Big Iron with that set-up.

How about narrow front with cab?

i second the narrow front with duels id say no cab but im a original guy and if the cab isnt shot it should stay! Cab narrow front an duels and maybe a set of rear wheel weights and a whole rack up front weights would be alittle different!

Any thoughts or ideas on how to set this one up?

I think a narrow front with your typical weight set up and 10 bolt duals would look great.  Maybe fuel tank lights.

My 2 cents.

Made a parts run today. Got some 3.5" 9 bolt dual hubs for this 1456 and some weights for the 1066 i put up for sale to jazz it up a bit more. 

Anyone have any if the hood brackets that go under the Air filter housing? I have 2 in a row now with that bracket missing.
