My IH 260A Posted by Buster on 12/29/2012

I bought it at an auction with a blown engine. It belonged to a city and somebody had been running it without an air cleaner element. The rings were worn out and it blew No. 4 piston. I replaced the one piston, rings etc.

The tractor is a backhoe loader and I use it in some rugged, rocky, land which is extremely rough on equipment. Through the years I have blown all the hydraulic hoses at least once or twice. I have rebuilt all the cylinders at least one time. I have never had any more internal problems with the engine again. It is now sitting with couple of teeth broken off in the transmission. I will tear it down within the next couple of weeks and I hope I can find the parts to fix it. It has been a real workhorse.
