One more post lol or I could keep going. 

Here's a good friend of mines 63 806. Has an RD pump yet and a M&W turbo. And it sure whistles! Had it under my 234 with grinder unit this fall, and chiseled with it this spring.

My old IH 806. Bought it with the turbo set up on it, told it had a bad motor, turns out it was the turbo. it currently has a T04 off a 1066 and a blown rear tire, new rears are in the barn waiting to go on after planting.

Pics are from a couple years ago rolling beans with a 34' roller, cutting hay at my place and pulling wagons last fall right before the rear tire blew.

Last pic is when I moved back home, pulled it home 4 hours across the state in the cover of darkness.

My Two 806,s , the L.P. had just been restored, the first pic of bean cutter was when I had just acquired it, It had been sitting in a open shed since 2012.

 The bottom pic is after engine rebuild,( had a dancing sleeve) new tires, Wiring ,Radiator, All new hyd. hoses, etc. and everything repaired ,Basically restored without the paint. horizontal knives are off.  That 806 with four row bean cutter has cut over 17000 acres of blackeye beans in its life time, Its last year cutting was in 2012 it cut 650 acres. I don't want to paint it because the paint wear patterns show where beans passed thru

Warning for a photo dump of the same tractor...

But here's my 66 806, bought it in late 2016 from a tractor jockey/salvage yard. It had 2 spun rod bearings, and was dusted. Built the engine from scratch, added the turbo setup. Always changing something on it. Have something planned for the next month or 2 so stay tuned. 

But enough rambling on to the pics. It gets used for a little of everything around home. If it's got a hitch it's probably been hooked to it.

Dan, I think you need a front end loader, and a cotton picker for your 8. They should cover about every possible use you could have for it. Oh, maybe pulling Bitty's barrel train, too.

Talk about diversity in jobs! It's nice to see these & the other 806's hard at work. That belt pulley setup is really neat. Always wanted one, but they are not easy to come by. How hard is it to get lined up? I find the side mount pulleys to be relatively easy. Also, is that a 93 combine hiding in the last picture?

Guess I don't quite have a handle on this posting thing yet. When I went to comment, it didn't come up after hitting submit reply. So, I redid the post & it didn't show up right away. Refreshed & nothing. So, tried it a third time & now there's a double. How does one go about deleting a duplicate post?

Haha. We do have a quick tach loader off dads 856 I could hang on it. I dont know about a cotton picker, that seems like a lot of work lol. Have an ICB cab laying here for it, it I felt the need to put it on.

I think about 2 trys and had it lined up, but not the first time I've line a belt up. But the first time I did it backwards. It's the only 1000rpm belt pulley I have seen. It mounts on the back of the dual speed ptos. The 540 only style seem to be a bit more common, there's 5 or 6 different variations of that style. 

105 combine. Friend that owns the 63 806 owns it. We combined a few beans with it about 5 years ago, and some oats a couple summers ago. Works pretty good.
