826 Tractor of the day # 2


Recommended Posts

The 826 is the second tractor in my tractor of the day series. I have no rhyme or reason to the order of choosing the tractors. A week went by fast since I decided to do this. Loved all the participation on the 1486's. So here we go again with the 826. The first picture is ours. Dad bought it on a farm sale with around 900 hours on it when it was only a few years old. It had an M&W turbo put on soon after. It was our big tractor until Dad bought a 1066 in 1980. I spent hundreds of hours on this 826 over the years. It has treated us well and has not had the engine touched yet with 8000 hours. The second 826 is just one I found once again with no affiliation at all. Again, add your 826's and enjoy "Tractor of the Day" # 2.

I don’t have a picture of the one we had when I was at Hagler Nebraska. I was running it, when I took the pictures of my wife baling with the 1486. The one we had was a hydro and Lisa liked running it. I am still not a IHC hydro fan. They just don’t operate as smoothly as the Versatile or Rogator hydro do.

Maybe I'll uncover mine today and straighten out the muffler, then take a pic. If not I'll spare everyone. Would really like to hear the reason why the muffler was put on in that orientation! A buddy of mine has one with 38" rubber and M&W turbo but I don't have a picture.

This my 826. It was bought by my grandfather. I received it after his passing. I replaced the 16.9-38 with 18.4-38's and repainted it. I love the Hydro and completely understand why this was my grandfather's favorite tractor.

One at a consignment sale last week. Screenshot of a video of the auctioneer selling it

Old picture from the 70s of the 826 Grandpa and Dad had at the time. Was traded in 1980 for a 986 so it was gone before I was born

My 826 is only one on the serial plate.    I overhauled and put a 360 out of an 886 in and added an IH manifold and turbo and 14" clutch. I painted it last summer.

Funny you mentioned the D360 as a replacement motor as I wondered a few minutes ago if that would be a good substitute for the 358, since the 358s seem to be so expensive to work on these days.

The D360 886s ran at 2400 instead of 2600 IIRC.

You sure the bottom one is a 826 ?  I might need to upgrade my glasses

More of an 826 than any stock tractor at a tractor pull :)

Sure doesn't look like it from my 4 eyes?

Sure looks like a 407 from the left side.

I love it. This one I never farmed with as a German motor. It ran fine but started a little hard and I wanted a turbo'd 360 in it so I pulled it out and sold it. It was a fairly simple swap for the most part except the turbo, and have been keeping my eyes open for an 826 or 1026 Hydro to do the same thing to, I know some won't like it but I enjoy the swaps and like the small hood well enough to not just get another 100 Hydro. 

I cant tell you off hand how fast it spins but that 2400 sounds right.

I had a 756 I pulled the 310 out of and put a 312 in that I overhauled. That motor was a money pit but that was more about the motor I started with than that motor in general. I put an M&W on the 312 for the guy I sold it to, some days I wish I had that one back. It was a sweet tractor and would start about as fast as you could let go of the button whether it was 0 or 90 degrees.

Dang you guys! Why do you always have to look so close? It was listed as an 826, I noticed right away it was a 12 or 14. Just thought I would see if y'all were paying attention.:D

Got the muffler straightened out. Decided the wind was too strong to take the tarp off. Thought if something went wrong I'd take a kite trip to Iowaboy's in about 60 seconds!

Someone could turn the fan setting to low one of these days and it wouldn't hurt my feelings a bit!

Here's mine. Originally a gold demonstror.

The original owner was my neighbor. He often bragged how he got a great deal because it had been demonstrated. He made the dealer paint the gold part red. He didn't want no gold tractor!

Sold it to another neighbor 30 years ago. I bought it from them about 10 years ago.

It's a great tractor but needs some details.

Thx-Ace

my 826 hydro. It was a gold demonstrator that, when it made it to one farm, the owner told the dealer he would have to find a different tractor to demo, the 826 wasn't leaving his farm. I bought it from his sons, who said they couldn't find the right shade of gold, so they repainted it red. It or my 1456 will be the last 2 working tractors I would ever let go.

Here’s my friends son’s 826 that I have helped him with a bit. He’s cleaned it up so me since my last pictures.

and he rebuilt the engine and we turboed it.
