IH 1456 Gold Demo S/N 12859


Long Farms

Recommended Posts

Found this in Lampasas TX. More than likely it originated in TX panhandle. Factory cab, 20.8-38s and 11.00-16s. Had the 1k lbs wheel weights that come from western tractors. Even had the factory 20.8-38 duals with it.  Bought it as salvage. Didnt run missing alot of hyd parts. Guy i bought it from sold it to an old man 10 years ago, old man ran it, 3pt quit, he took it all apart then died. Alot of parts were lost or stolen. Widow sold it back to guy i got it from. Got it running day i got it home, got 3pt working shortly after. Guy took it all part and all it was, was a sheared key on hitch pump gear shaft. Front axle is welded up with center pin bushing housing broke out.

Great save Brian. I can’t for the life of me figure why some owners have their TA levers tilted so far forward like you found this one when it came in to you.  I’ve seen pictures of other tractors with the TA  lever adjusted to such a goofy position like this, with the lever angled way ahead like that. It seems one would have to get up out of the seat to reach it to pull it back or throw it ahead. Crazy.

Maybe when it's back to far, guys getting down of the tractor catch their shirts and coats on them and then end upside down.

My 2 cents worth

Completely rebuilt front axle, center tube took a trip to machine shop for new pivot pin bushing housing. New pivot bushings, pin, knee bushings, thrust bearings, pivot stay ball, new spindles, good used steering arms, new tie rods. 

Swapped out mangled up radiator with fresh one gone thru Rad shop. Replaced cut fan shroud with uncut shroud. New hoses and fan belt. New oil cooler hoses and over flow hose. 

Went thru rear brakes. They were sticking bad after it sat for a while. Cobbled up parts thrown in from 1466 brake parts. (Wont work correctly if mismatched). Worn pads, gunk filled housings. New Seal kits, cleaned housings, installed correct P/N parts for 1456 with good used brake discs.

-rewired front main, rear main, LH and RH dash panels, main fender harness.

-fenders are on work bench to be rewired. 

-new alternator 

-added alt shield

-install late style ROPS and canopy 

-installed working horn

-added muffler extension

 

Comparison of early vs late style rops mounts. I already rebuilt brakes on the 1456 but its a nightmare to work on brakes on early style rops. Still alot left to be done buts its ironing out.
