Looks like a quietline series that was made in the 80's. The serial number located on the tag just above the foot rest in the pic should steer you in the right direction for the specific model and date. The model should also be on the faded decal on the side of the dash.

Thank you im looking to buy one to fix up and do little tractor pulling with and I found this one. Haven't seen it yet just pics I posted. Trying to figure out if its a manual and cast rear end?

Difficult to say from the pics. It should have the cast rear end.
What area of Va. do you live? I have a 128 (manual tranny) minus the engine I could let go fairly cheap.

Jason - I highly recommend going with the 128 Marty has over the Quiet Line tractor shown in your pic. The Quiet Line used ISO-mounts (rubber) in a cradle type set up for mounting the engine. The engine in a 128 does not have this and would be directly mounted to the frame. Also, the IH used aluminum trannys in some of the later production Quiet Line units. The 128 has a cast iron tranny. There is also a good chance the Quiet Line would be a hydrostatic drive instead of gear drive, since IH had learned the public preferred hydro to manual by 9:1.

The later QL tractors had aluminum axle tubes only, and IMO, this is not a detriment for any normal usage. The rest of the transmission is the same construction as the earlier models.

Based on the pictures, it appears to be the later version with 1" spindles, aluminum lower grille, and internal brakes and aluminum axle tubes. Can't tell if there is a shifter there or not, but it has manual lift, so it is either a 1000, 1200, or 1250.

Harry,

The Aluminum transmission did not come into play until the CCC produced 82 Series. All the Quietlines, and I believe all the IH Produced 82 Series still had the Cast Iron transmission.

New ISO’s and the Cradle Mod fixes the issues with the IH designed 2 rail system. We have several Quietlines and after the mod, we have not had any issues with them.

Ahhhhh....I see it now peeking out from the top. I was looking for that and didn't see it so I was thinking it was a 1450 or 1650. Good eye 👍😎👍

Matt and Scott - I stand corrected about the aluminum rearend. I knew it was only the axle tubes. I don't know what I was thinking. As for the ISO-mounts, Jason said he was looking to fix it up and do some tractor pulling, so I thought the direct frame mounted engine would be better (not knowing how much hp he's planning to add).
