Dad bought this mid 1970s International Farmall 1066 when I was a kid and I remember driving it a lot putting up hay and running a shredder with it. Several years ago several of the sleeves cavitated and water got in the oil so I did an inframe overhaul on it for Dad as well has a few other repairs on it over the years. He has not used it much the last few years and it has just been sitting there... imagine my surprise when he up and GAVE it to me a few days ago! You could have knocked me over with a feather!

fwiw, my 1466 has a yellow back rim in the same place as yours. JD guy asked me if it ran better that way, but i told him that side always spun first. :D

That's cool! What kind of cab is that? If it's a YAR I may have some glass for you.
