How tall do those measure mounted?
Overall height before mounting on the Cub were right at 27" - although I never checked the air pressure. I had the local Goodyear guy mount them for me for $15. I'd guess the air pressure would be approx 15psi

Do I put fluid inside them? I think I'll just stack a few weights on these. Here is a template of the wheel weights I designed. These are 7 gage I think, they weighed in at 2 pounds each

Here is an update. The hood, dash, Fenders, and seat frame are just setting on it. The 128 dash is in horrible shape, I need to find another. There's more little issues than I planned but it'll get done at some point. Hopefully this coming Saturday I will turn the key and see if it starts and moves. The 2 colors are looking really nice, maybe I should leave it red and cream colored versus IH '66 colors

Looks a lot like a 5 Millionth 1066 to me.....I'd leave the tins white and get custom decals made....would be really sharp!
I agree with Steve, the colours look good. Hell, it ALL looks good! Nice job! Very slick. Everything just works on it to me. I'd love to have a tractor like that to work around yard and pick rocks in the bean fields. Real head turner!

Wow IHinIN, do you have details on the hood? Looks like I need to repaint my rims, n more.

I am thinking my 2nd 128 will be the Mini 1466 in time, this current one will now stay close to the color it is. Meaning sometime in the next 4 years or so

5 days away from a plow day and I still have some major things to do, and some issues. Anyone know where I put the link for the internal brake, the link from the clutch/brake pedal to the trans. Seems I remember I need to modify it but I have to find it first, guess this is what happens with a 4 year build, having moved to a new house during the move. Also missing is the rear lift bar attachment block, might have to borrow this from the 149

I got a K301 installed an started on Saturday. Got the 2nd wiring harness installed, I'm wondering why I had not bought a new wiring harness from Charlie, will do this in the future. at some point. The wiring harness in this 128 was in poor condition. Clutch and rive shaft all worked fine. I will have the fenders aligned and mounted tonight I think.
