I agree with both Mike and @vtfireman85 when I first saw the pic I found it very interesting and humbling but sad too at the same time. Great time capsules they are.

This interesting photo was brought to my attention on Facebook yesterday. I’m sure some have seen it but this was taken 17,500 below the sea surface. It’s a 1941 IH still chained to the deck of the USS Hornet CV-8 which was lost on October 27th, 1942 during the battle of Santa Cruz Islands. 

Anyone that knows the Military tractors know what the model is? Looks similar in size to a W-4 or a smaller model for ships. Great picture just wanted to share.

Ran when parked.  

I'm sure HyTran would work best. But since it hasn't run for a while, I'm curious,..... should I use 10-30 or would straight 30W be ok?

10-30 may be a good start. Don’t think straight 30 will cut it lol

I sure don't know. Rear chassis could be 4 series. Engine looks ABC. 

like it was mentioned before its a shop mule. basically a Farmall A with the final drives turned 90 degrees to lower it much like the Cub Loboys- I wonder if IH got the idea from Hebard

 If you look closely at my pic under the tractor you can see the final drive pan facing frontwards. I took this pics at out Red Iron Show 10 years ago. should have taken better ones
