Ih 806 Ole smokey

I have been visiting this site for some time and have liked reading your stories, so I figured i'd add mine. My dad bought an IH 806 when he was about 18 years old. long before I came along. He used to run a truck over the road and he didn't have time to redo the motor himself when it went out about twenty+ years ago. He took it to the locol IH dealership and told them he didnt want it back unless it had the same horse power it had when he took it up there. Well it dynoed at 135 ponies, with just the fuel pump turned up, Im guessing way up. Its sitting 18.4 38s loaded with calcium, its got the fast hitch and talks to ya through a straight pipe, sounds awesome. I, like many people started driving tractors way before I should have. I started on this one at about five years old. My dad likes telling this story, the stock seat really took a licking so he put a seat out of an old car on it, don't look to bad really. Anyway when we would bale hay he couldn't see me in the seat because I was too small. I would have to push against the lower seat with my lower back to push the clutch down, slip it in gear, let the clutch out and hop back on the seat, then pour the coal to it. When it came to stopping the gears where worn enough I could just reach up and pop it into nuetral. I still love this tractor, I can't wait until spring so I can play in the dirt.when I was chisel plowing last fall I had the front end off the ground a time or two. Since the fuel pump is tweaked the black smoke rolls out real well and as small kids my sister and I kinda coinded the term smokey and thats how the title came to be. It has 1075 hours on it and I really want to rebuild it. I know how people get with their tractors and I really love running the old girl.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
