What Model IH Sickle Bar Mower is this?

Tue Oct 01, 2013 8:19 pm

Erik picked this up this past weekend from a friends barn that had collapsed.
It has IH stamped into most of the parts.
The sickle bar is 6 foot long and looks to be a rear mount PTO driven mower.
The hookup seems to be into the finals.
Here are several photos;

Here are some Part No.'s on various components;
M-2564 on part of the drive assembly
M-2566 on the part where the large pulley is attached
M-2512 on part of the tilting mechanism (based on the similar part on the Cub-22 Mower)
M-2515 on Inner Shoe Hinge
M-2629 on Gag Lever Post

What Model is this?
Does anyone have a Parts Manual for it so he can see what is missing?
The Pitman Arm was rotted through. It measures approx. 35". According to a post on a different forum, the poster states "IH models 10,16,21,24,28 use a pitman that is 35-11/16" long".
The bar is missing a few of the Serrated Ledger Plate Guards.

Thanks,
Peter

Peter, I looked in the MR-5 parts manual that is on the server and none of those numbers are listed in the back. So it's probably an earlier mower than those shown in it. Parts Depot shows M2515, M2512, and M2629 as available, but I don't know how to go backwards to find the model. Maybe that will help someone else identify it.

OK - Thanks guys.
Where can I find a Parts Manual for a Model 16A?
Erik wants to offer it for sale - but wants to know what is missing, if anything.

Thanks,
Peter

What kind of tractor did this go on? I have a Super A and I got a package deal when I a bought it and a mower that looks very similar came with it. Powered by offset PTO.

If it is the same, can I also get a link to where I can find a manual. I believe I have all the parts, just some assembly required.

You probably have an A21 if it was on a SA and is rear mounted, however, the A16 could be mounted on a SA, just a harder to mount mowr in my opinion.

That is a model 16 McCormick - Deering Sickle bar mower.

I've been looking for one myself for parts!
