Just rolled in after driving the 100 today as it has AC! A real IH man would have driven a hot and steamy 200, so I am not that guy today, 100+ in addition to the heat index. YUCK!

The clutch looks brand new! I told Randy at the shop that I almost hated making it dirty. When they loaded it up for me, the shop stopped, Randy told everyone to come out and look at the 100, how cool was that? He said they never get to see the shiny side and thanks for bringing it by! I brought him two more clutches etc to rebuild for one of my many other projects. He also gave me a box full of goodies for my other projects--bearings, collars, etc.

I also bought a Scout II top from a local guy, I know, probably don't need it, but its not like they are still in production either.

Hot and sweaty and lots of driving, so worth it, its Taco Thursday since we missed Tuesday HAHAHA, to replace some of the salt that I lost today of course!!

There looks to be two months of lost time in that box.

That’s how long the 1310 project was delayed by the search for a throwout bearing that fit after the clutch shop provided one that didn’t.

Those look like some great establishments. You know you will be taken care of if the employees are smoking cigarettes inside. That's a sign of an old school knowledgeable shop!

And BTW JJ, you can always crawl under the truck in the dirt like the rest of us if you hydraulic lift is giving you trouble!!!! Hahahaha!!!! Hopefully my future relocation will yield a nice lift as well.

Great pics.

that is no joke! When all the guys came out of the back, I was glad to see a guy aged around 30, so I really hope he is going to carry the tradition on, I can't say it enough, once these places are gone thats it.

lack of computers and as you point out, ashtrays! HAHAHAHA

I splurged and added a mini split system when I built the shop, but this week has been all outside putting the suspension and drivetrain on the frame. 105-110 heat index and I swear it’s 90% RH…this 71 yo is having a tough time!

I have two hotel/motel PTAC units in my shop that run 24/7. And I don't open the doors much so it stays around 78 or so in there. I have them set high so they will cycle and not run all the time. They have served me well.

Dew and I did manage to get some stuff done. Since the Scout is going to make its debut tomorrow night at the local cruise in, I cleaned the windows. I had purchased a top yesterday from a local guy and its T handle was in much better shape and it had a key! So I resurrected this old thread (Thanks Bill for the write up many years ago--I love this website and the knowledge) as I had never actually removed one that had a key, I had always drilled them out. But since I wanted it to be one key, and the original one at that it was important to not destroy the original lock cylinder. Greg look at the key as it has the IH logo on it HAHAHAHAHAHA

and of course, while I was doing that Dew had to check out the new clutch and take a load off at the same time

Reminds me of Harry Caray calling afternoon Cubs games in the early ‘90’s: “Hey Steve, did you know ‘Sosa’ spelled backwards is ‘Asos’?” Middle innings, several Budweisers in.

me too actually. I believe that in the larger towns the Chrysler dealers were the IH sales outlets. Ive seen several on the LST where they were delivered (my '76 to Howard Chrysler in Phoenix), and if you look in the approved service in the old books from the day, it lists them as well. Kinda interesting.
