Bought a 1980 IH 150 hp tractor at low price as I was aware of IH rear end, clutch, and TA issues. As expected, within two years I had to replace the clutch and disable the TA. I never overloaded the tractor, in fact the biggest disk harrow I ever hooked it up to was a heavy duty 12 ft and the plow was a 5x16 which it pulled with ease. The IH 466 engine is great with ample power, good fuel economy, and very easy to start. Not sure what engine the 886 has in it but most IH diesels were fairly reliable engines. Can't comment on the 2950 but all my Deere tractors have been pretty bullet proof to include the engines. Tractor history should be a big factor in your decision along with dealership support in the area.

If you had a 150hp tractor then it was either a 1486 or 1586. If bought for such a low price then there was a reason, it was wore out. IH did not have 466's in there tractors in 1980, it would have been a 436. For the rearend trouble most 1486's I have looked at for a low price make noise. The reason is most had been turned up, weighted down and used hard.

You forgot about the 1980 3588 with the 466 engine. It was actually low hours (6500) and came from the wheat fields of Kansas. It was low priced as it was too big of a tractor for most farmers in the area and many did not like the 4 wheel articulated tractors, although they had a lot of advantages.

I was thinking/talking about two wheel drive tractors. 2+2 tractors had a lot of problems, the front axles were not strong enough, piston pumps prone to go out, and when people dueled the front wheels and used it like a steiger lots of bad things happened. The rearends where the same as used in the 1486. In my area you can't give them away.
