Does anybody have a reference or a picture of an IH 100 balanced head pull type mower with the original decals ? I just finished rebuilding and repainting one and i was curious if decals were available and there placement and appearance .So if you could help me out it would be appreciated. And on another subject what is the model number of a drawbar mounted Farmall pitman drive sickle mower that was used on the M and H it is the one with the trailing wheel on the back?

bodid1998; I peeked using the "Implement Photos" link under the "Galleries" section to the left; then did a search. Click the 'search' link below the red banner; in the search for dialog box I entered the words: 27 mower. The result was three returns that may be helpful to you. Try the link, click the third photo link, under the picture click the "View other Comments" link; a fellow by the name of gerald - clicking his name, may get you some more photos/information. Good luck with this interesting project of yours. Dave had some great input also.

Dave thank you for your knowledge and willing to help I greatly appreciate your response ! My mower before sanding did have the two decals on the head and I was pretty sure it said Mccormick on the shields, you did confirm my thinking and thanks again.

Actual picture of a Reference materials I can do. Original sales literature from the early 60's shows the trailing version of the 100 mower with a decal on the drivers right hand side of the drive shield about 2/3rds up from the rear. The familiar "IH" red and black logo with what appears to be a "McCormick" decal. Other than that, no photos or brochures that I have on file show the decals for the mower and that includes the original brochure from when it was introduced. IH used a lot of sketches and retouched photos in their sales brochures and decals were not always a priority in the reproduction.

Other balanced head mowers which I do have on hand have various decals on them. Usually a small decal somewhere on the mower will have a model number and may or may not include the phrase "balanced mower".

The balanced head itself will have decals on it. This unit was common to all models and it would be reasonable to assume that the decals were the same. There may be changes based on year of manufacture, however. The following picture of a #120 mower has this smallish yellow decal with patent numbers listed"

The following is from a #115 belly mount mower and details lubrication info for the BH. This decal appears in a lot of pictures of BH mowers:

The bad news is you are not likely to find a new source for these. I don't know of any at least. Mostly I think it would look pretty nice with just the shield decals. HTH, Dave
