Mufflers in question?? The I-H one's stamped maybe or not, are, were, galvanized and stayed that way for ever, or a long time!!$$ The new OEM are painted and start burning the paint away to rust the very first use. that makes me mad.

The muffler makes the show tractor ************* Armand

Where do you find good armrests?! I’d say they are getting pretty rare?  I wish someone would make a good copy of the original seats and armrests. It’s one of my  sticking points on my list of “must have” parts on a tractor to see a good original hyd seat with original armrests.

It takes 2-3 junk seats to make a decent one. The arm rest brackets look simple but might be pricey to replicate. Most originals are rotten. They were raw metal when factory installed. Picked up a load of aftermarket weights today.

Ill add some weight emblems next week. Those grille emblems make the blank weights tolerable. IH stamp weights have become hard to find and expensive. Need to pick up  hardware to hang more rear wheel weights. Still deciding on rear tire choices or if ill have to play tire swap games again. These longbar/short bars might end up on 1026.

None of mine have parklock updates. Im on flatground blackland prairie. Most come in with ends bent in a little. Some were froze up from lack of use. This one needs to be replaced. This came from gulf coastal bend and they are flat ground too. They welded the ends up making it nonajustable. Once i have them adjusted right they work fine for me with no issues. Ive already pulled the top cover off and rebuilt bottom end of shifters so i see no need to go back in. I do want to see a tractor with parklock update and tell if i like it or not.

With as many different 1456s you have I think it would be awsome if you had 1 with 23.1 34s with 14l 16s , I like the 18.4s with 11 16s the best but when ya got so many it would just change things up and make it so they dont blend together  as much

Big rubber does nothing for me. I pull them off and sell em and send them north. Sold a set of 23.1x34 Firestones mounted on rims and wheel centers for decent $ few years ago. Helps buy new parts and get a project going. I like how 11.00-16 look on 16x10 rims and 11L-15 look on 15x10 rims. Has that deep dish rim look. Variety is nice but Colemans are too expensive to buy into and rebuild. Bigger rubber cost bigger $. Everyone I drag home has junky longbar/shortbars and its hard to find decent 18.4x38s as it is.

Ya I know what you mean with cost of tires, I only have 3 diesel ih's and that's hard enough to complete, I got the duals from my 1456 on the hubs of my home made 1206 wheatland cause 23.1 34s are so expensive, got to pic and choose what I want dont cause it isnt getting done all at once

Installed all new wiring. Fuel/temp gauge is iffy. Really dont want to buy aftermarket if i dont have to. Cleaned up engine area. New hyd oil cooler hoses, alt and kevlar fan belt. Nice when they crank like they should and dash lights work. Also installed an IH oil pressure gauge.
