IH 1466 ser # 7103

Finally got the chance to run the 14 in the field.  Pulled my 365 vibra tine 6mph with ease.  Not a single leak.  Ran cool.  Just flawless except for the last pass when the left brake started to drag and got hot.  I have had that thing apart 5-6 times and fooled with it.  Really thought I had it this time but after 32 acres it got hot.  Go figure.  Otherwise it passed with flying colors!

So what’s the consensus? Plowing corn or cultivating corn?

Looks like a cultivator to me......🤔

I dunno, but one farm we rented the spray did not work, and the quack had taken over a 5 acre small field. The Danish tool did noting except plug. Dad and I mounted the two row cultivators on the 230 and the 240. When we got though the field it looked like a mold board plow had gone through there. The corn was 8-10 inches tall and the dirt with grass heaped up was almost even with it. It is al about how aggressive the cultivator is.

What did you find with the brake hanging up??

  I don’t know.  Took it apart again.  It has worked without issue.  Not sure what I did.

Put 7103 on the 730 5 bottom and put it thru it’s paces.  Never missed a step.  One minor fuel leak.  Real solid tractor.  Rebuilding the pto now.  Give it a run on the dyno when I get it back together!

Today I worked on the tractor between loading trucks.  I put some paint remover on the shift, throttle and t/a handles to expose the chrome.  Put the new rubber plugs on for the remotes and replaced the “home made” clutch booster bracket.  Someone sure went to a lot of work to make it but it was UGLY.  Looks better now!

Love your find! I also bought a 71 1466 when I was in college and it was very badly exploded. Number 6 rod came out so hard it hit the frame rail and dented it and the block came out in three pieces haha. We left the dent in the frame rail and it also has two bolts in the frame rails as yours but no clutch booster. Has factory horn though and power beyond.

I've seen 966 sn #7106 in the flesh, owned locally since it left Hinsdale. It has chrome levers, white 56 series hydraulic seat, and pre-production air cleaner, fuel and voltage gauges. Will visit it again and get some pics to share as I know both the original and current owner. Can't recall if it has punch holes for a number plate or the smaller screen hole pattern.

That air cleaner sounds intriguing!

  If you could ask I would be curious of the route it took from Hinsdale to the current owners?  What part of the world is it in now?   It’s seems like a few of these early tractors ended up in NE IA after leaving Hinsdale.  Did it ever have a cab/rops?  Seems like a nearly every photo of those first few tractors we equipped with one or the other.

  Thanks for sharing!
