    123 dozer conversion

    Do you have a spring in the tensioning system in case you pick up a rock or other crap between the sprockets and the track?

    123 dozer conversion

    Do you have ESP or sumthin? I've been plotting and conviving how to do a dozer conversion for my dad's old Cub for years. I hadn't thought about a delta design and was going with a conventional track design on rubber treads. I had even planned on a hydraulic steering brake system similar to...

    QA42a blower - correct police

    There would be more cost savings if you painted everything as a unit. If you are installing something on a freshly painted unit you have to be careful not to scratch up the paint too much. Too much paint damage and the customer is not going to be happy. A more likely explanation for the...

    Much demand for albino squirrels at petting zoos? Sounds like a pretty limited market. Might be kinda hard to get rich and famous - I wouldn't quit my day job just yet.

    Quietline 1000 Down under

    Rats, white wheels - I LIKED the look of the chromies. When you had the Cub apart did you take a look at the weld on the shift lever for cracks? The weld broke on my 1000 with a 3 speed manual transmission earlier this summer. It seems that is a common problem with the 3 speeds, but it's an...

    Parts For Sale Non-IH windbreaker - free to good home

    I've got a non-IH windbreaker that my Dad used to use. He modified it to fit his 1452 and used it for many years when blowing snow. I don't use it and now it's just taking up space in my garage. You want it, you gotta help get it out - I'm in Manchester, IA. Last time I looked at it, the...

    Mini International Tractor spotted

    Hmmmm...... Chromies on the front, like the 1066, wouldn't look too bad either.

    Mini International Tractor spotted

    The 1066 with the white hood is probably the one I'm thinking of. I'm pretty sure there was also a Canadian special edition that had a gold hood. You've got the headliights looking good, do you have work lights in the back too? Don

    Mini International Tractor spotted

    vthomley: You've got a nice looking little tractor there. The only thing that makes it look a little out of the ordinary is there's no exhaust sticking up through the hood. Normally IH tractors would be painted in a color scheme similar to the little beauty that started this thread,. But I...

    To those who contacted me, thanks. I found a blade a few miles away for a reasonable price and snatched it up. Don

    Parts Wanted Snow blade

    Looking for a snow blade to fit a Cub 1000, and I'd REALLY like to find one 200 miles or less from Manchester IA. If I have to, I'll buy a new after-market blade, but I'd prefer to find an IH blade. (I was brought up on IH red and Ford blue.) Thanks, Don

    Thought I might share a new Pup picture

    I used to grow tomatoes on my deck. My problem wasn't the pets, it was the squirrels. As soon as the tomatoes started to turn color the tree-rats would pick the tomato. They then had the nerve to sit on the deck railing eating the tomato. I know this because they would leave the remains of...
