IH 1456 vs Pecan Tree

Recommended Posts

The stay rod ( I think that's the name ) appears to be square and welded to the axle tube. I thought all 56 series tractors had the round rod that was threaded and bolted to the axle tube.

That's a 1456 axle. They were different from the rest of the 56 series.

Thanks Brian Long - I had not heard of Babcock and Wilcox weights.

The NF looks good on that 14!  And it looks like the engine is running in that photo?

Never mind - I just found the 2 videos.  I like the looks of the NF axle and the Diamond cab together. :)

Brian, im gonna tell you something ive heard all my life....No Brian, no!

Have the good parts heading to wash rack to clean up before i install them. Turns out if you want to easily disassemble a front axle run it into a tree. Came right apart with a lil 1066 tug.

That's not the correct tach for the tractor, or did the late ones have that style?

'73-76 66 tach. Even the early 66s had a rainbow face tach but didnt have IH on it like 56s did. So theres no way of knowing how many hrs it has. But clutch pedal says atleast 8k hrs.

He knew it ran but it was paid for on site.

Babcock and Wilcox made many castings and forgings for the pipeline and industrial piping industry....stands to reason the foundry would pour some "plain old castings" like wheel weights on the side as well. 

Those monsters look HEAVY!!!!

Brian, how many tractors do you have a loader on? I saw a 1066 BS and a 1026 in that last montage of photos. I thought the loader was on the faded black stripe most recently?  Just curious.   Another great find, Sir.

I pulled the loader off the faded 1066 black stripe and put it up for sale. It had a 2355 loader and i dont want to sell it. I like the 2350 and 2355s. I hauled hay with it last summer/fall. Put the 2355 on my other 1066 black stripe.

Is that the helper you had with you when you passed through here last year?
