Got to do something new yesterday!


Recommended Posts

Since being in Canyon, TX at West Texas A&M University this current school year I always go right by @Axial Flow and his IH collection. Yesterday I went down for a majority of the day to visit and help where needed. The big thing we did was put all new pistons in a 1976 IH 766 diesel. I’ve never done any type of overhaul so this was a totally new thing for me to take part in. As you can see it is just an in frame overhaul. I had a lot of fun, learned a lot, and didn’t leave without a picture of me doing it!

I have a soft spot for the 766. On DVD #15 of the Farmingtonimplement DVD’s of IH films my name was included on a seven minute film from 1973 about the new diesel engine on the 766. And here exactly 50 years later I got to help do engine work on a 766 so that was really neat. He has put my name on a few films because three years ago I had the guy that restores the films on the FFA radio show to talk about the films. I love IH films so the fact I’ve had my name on a few has been very special to me!

Here’s a pic before tear down.

For working hard, you look awfully clean?

Glad someone took the time to show you the ropes.

That is how the next generation keeps things alive.
