When I was young my Dad had an 856. It was the first tractor I drove doing tillage work. He traded it off years ago. Now I bought another one and I am restoring it to new condition. Sorry i have no pi

Did a little more disassembling on the 856. Disassembled the diesel pump drive and installed new seals and gaskets. The diesel pump was completely disassembled at professional diesel shop and complete

Why be condescending?  One thing I've learned and noticed is that projects need to be attainable and manageable.  So many times I've seen people get overwhelmed with restorations they never get done.

Looks very nice.  Ignore that one guy.  He always says stuff rude and tack less.  He is alot better than anyone, just ask him, **** tell ya.?

How many hours on that 856?  I dont think I have ever seen a 856 in real life on a farm.  They weren't very pop here I guess.  ?    Always seems like here everyone went from M to 86 series.  Like skipped 56 and 66.  Have to ask dad for sure.  Where you located?   I like your approach.  Check it all and run for a bit, come in and handle what needs to handled and clean up the rest.  This tractor going to have a specific  task?  That hardener gives it a nice shine don't it?   Alllmmooost tony in cali like ?

I went back and looked at pictures again. Judging by the farmall emblems as wall decoration I think this isn’t the first IHC tractor they have fixed.

Sorry so late to reply back. This week was very busy. Your right,,if there is 100 people on this site ?? 99 of them are really super nice true IH fans. The 856 has 7000 hrs. Located in central MN. Future work might involve cutting hay, hauling round bales home or running an auger in the fall.

You are correct sir. The emblems are from my 1206 that needs everything done. If you look at the picture of the 856 steering tower you can see it in the background. The 856 is first then the 1206 next year. Got enough original hood bolts for both of them cleaned up. I want them both to look like they just came out of the Rock Island plant in 67 and 68.

Very nice job!   The 2150 with hardener holds up well.     Just noticed we are darn near neighbors!!!    I live just northeast of you a bit.

Nice tractor is that a rock box on the right side.

Yes that way I can carry 12 bags of seed with me between the two rock boxes.  All this tractor does is planting,,I haven't unhooked the planter in 10 years.
