Meanwhile.....in the shop


Recommended Posts

Smoke Rings patiently awaits exploratory surgery to find the cause of it pushing water out the radiator.  This black stripe 1066 gets a block heater, new coolant, some wiring repairs and a 7 prong plug added to the rear.  The 766 is going to get a starter rebuild and some electrical repairs.  It already got new shoes.  The 1486 came in to get the ez-steer installed and a business band radio.  Need to finish these up so we can get on to other projects but I enjoying walking in the shop to this view!

Don't see too many gas 66s. Hopefully you buy good fuel for it. We always had large gas tractors for the feed lot  in the winter.

Do you buy the aftermarket weights for them or did you get them on a tractor? Here they are $85 per 100 lb .. used at auction bring 125-175 per 100 lb

I bought the red weights on the puller from Lone Star Foundry in Texas.  At the time they were $68 each.  I bought 30.  Now they are $89 I believe.  The black ones are IH weights from a 5088.

What a beautiful thing a shop full of Internationals is! Had a 1066, 1566 and three 1466's in ours a while back. Boys said we should have had a 7 and a 9 to have the whole set in at once. We don't own a 7 or 9 though. Like that 1486, want a Red Power myself someday.
