Hello- I am starting to look for an IH 403 diesel combine, but do not really know what to look for. I have read through some of the previous posts, and know that they had a d282, or d301. Did they make many diesels? Does the 301 use glowplugs? Did the 403 stay unchanged through the years of production, or were there updates? Is there anything to look for in particular if I find one for sale? (straw walkers crack, or front axle seal etc.)

Thanks for the help.

David

I have been looking at parts books and manuals, and would
need the back of the steering wheel column, (gauge and button)
fuel tank and supports, filter and lines up to the engine and fuel
shut-off cable. If it is possible to bring on your way to MN I
would be happy to meet you anywhere. I will leave my email
open if you would like to respond directly, or email me your
number and I will give you a call. I am hesitant to write my
number here due to some of the inappropriate posts lately.

Thanks for your help.

David i think you will need wiring harness also. theres heavy wires in it for glowplugs. i will have to make sure but i think it had electric shut off. also i checked the decals and on the rearend just below where it says 403, it says diesel in letters about 10 inchs long. dont know if theres enough left to show up in a picture or not. serial # is 13513. i checked some of our other parts combines and the # run 4500 up into 16000. im not very sharp on the computer.but i dont understand how you mean to contact you. the PM says under construction. i dont blame you for not wanting to post your #

i agree with you. i was even told by a ih mechanic that he thought the chain drive cylinders on 403 would out work the 715 belt drive. late 403 with white cabs were good machines.we have part of one. ill post serial # next week.

Yes a 715 cylinder and fan speed was easier to adjust but they also had many more and heavier belts and pulleys. A 403 is very simple and easy to work on. They were a tough reliable machine.

d282, i think every thing is still in the cab. it has glass fuel filter on tank that is different than 715. if you decide to go that direction let me know.

Mine is a 'rice special' they were a heavier, little better made machine. The spike tooth does a very good job in soybeans and small grains.

I have seen some nice 715 dsl. combines with QT sell pretty cheap, ten years newer more capacity than a 403

Hi Steve-

How much of the combine is left? I still need to do some more research, but I am wondering If I could buy the instrument dash that has the glowplug indicators, and anything else that pertains to a diesel, thinking converting a gas to diesel, but then that may simply not be worth the hassle.

Thanks to all that have posted. I greatly appreciate your help. This is a picture of my current project.

Just a point of interest in the IH Windbreaker on your Farmall. There are a few new ones listed on ebay as a buy it now. That system brings back memories, heat and dust.

I did a gas to diesel conversion on a Gleaner F and it was a good experience.
I replaced the Chevy 292 with an Oldsmobile diesel 350 V8.
A diesel V8 in a 403 would be a neat setup!
The IH 6.9 diesel would be a perfect match.

A 403 should has just as much capacity as a 715. Cylinder and feeder width are the same. The cleaning system and straw walker area are the same. The only advantage a 715 might have would be a slight increase in horsepower.

I don't remember ever selling a 403 diesel although the 301 glow plug engine was an option. Most we sold were LPG. All 403's were basicly the same except that hydrostatic drive was offered about half way through the production run. The 403 was a very good and reliable combine for its time. The "Rice Field Special" was especially good in comparison to other rice combines.

Don't forget the switch to hydrostatic power steering and the switch from flat belt to triple "V" belt machine drive system!

A 403 diesel is very rare. The later 403's had the 301 diesel which used glow plugs. The basic design of the machine remained unchanged though IH did offer hydrostatic drive transmissions in the mid to later model machines along with separater shields on the sides of the machine. If you are looking to buy one look at the grain tank and the grain pan above the transmission and see if the machine is rusted out there. If it is a hydro model check the hydro to see how stout the hydro is. Check the augers and belts for wear. Having one with a robot header control for soybeans is a plus. I run a late model hydro 403.
