Can't help you much on the combine other than guys that had them got along good with them. The 403 evolved into the 715, it's main competition in size would be JD 95, AC C2, Massey Super 92, Cockshutt/Oliver 431.

My book for IH drills shows the 150 hoe drill had a variety of opener spacings: 8", 10", 12" and 14". Years ago I had the double disc version, the No 100, very good drill. The 150 would work well for oats and barley, grass seed you might want the grass seed attachment. My 100 wouldn't close down enough to seed rape (5 lb/ac) so I mixed the seed and fertilizer and put it through the fertilizer attachment which worked well. The seed box held 1 3/4 bu per foot of box (wheat) on the 150. The fertilizer attachment had drop bottoms to clean out. Keeping all the fertilizer mechanism was very important as they'd rust up resulting in big damage. I always tarped mine when I wasn't using it.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seethanks for the replys, guys. Sounds like she might work for a while. I should be able to look at her day after tomorrow and I'll let you all know. Sounds like I missed out on the drill, oh well. In the pictures it looks like the cab on the combine is an old cat road grader cab, be interesting to see how good of a job they did on that.
