I never thought the B450 was "behind the times" It was a direct start diesel and had integral 3 point. This might be an interesting topic to see others views. Kinda like the kid in 3rd grade that was 20 pounds bigger and a year older? I never thought he was "ahead" of me.

That is what I thought. I actually thought they were ahead of us with that technology.

Thanks Howard, The B450 also had diff lock. Here in the UK we did not grow corn so we did not need a Farmall type rowcrop tractor. If you read my reply from last Fridays post you will see that most of them were exported. Here in the UK IH got behind with tractor designs in the 1960s but that all changed when the 454 and 574 tractors appeared. I sold IH tractors in the 1970s and in 1977 I sold 52 new tractors in a 15 mile radius taking mostley MF tractors in exchange. I still think the MF 100 series tractors were the bibbest heap of junk ever offerd to the british farmer. MJ
