While rebuilding 49-1 the part that was in the best shape of all on the whole darn tractor was the "OLD" graphite TOB. I reused the old (55 yrs) bearing I'll bet it's good for another 55.
Use the graphite bearing. But don't forget to grease as instructed in the Service Manual.
Mike is right Live where you must but buy local, if you can.
Mike, I don't disagree with you at all, but one of the major reasons there aren't local IH dealers any more is that so many of the smaller farming operations have been driven out of business. They were the backbone that kept the smaller IH dealers in business. I am fortunate, I have an IH dealer that is a 4th generation dealership still in business about 9 miles from me. They have diversified in order to keep in operation, but they have been excellent in obtaining needed parts for me. I prefer to purchase from them when possible, but even then, a lot of their parts are tagged Mexico etc.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!
Oh boy ,Tell you what I'am going to do. I have a new Bates TOB and a new pressure plate.Not going to put it in. I am now going to get a new CNH TOB old type. .I am going to just throw the orig. in . If that works we know the problem.Like some of you guys said ,"hey it work for 50 years why change it."Like a old mechanic told me years ago, when a B-17 landed at our airport. I said to him "The engines are leaking all over the place".He said "Sonny, If those engines are not leaking Somthin wrong"
OK, enough on that subject. Point well received.
NOW, lets go to my second question (I will make a new posting too)
Anything special with adjustments or installations with the new pressure plate and CARBON throw out bearing?
