    ih 1055 4wd restoration - bits needed please ....

    So I got back here at last!!!!

    I now have another project in the barn - this time a 1978 IH 1055 .


    Have immediate need of a few fairly 'structural bits' and wondered if anyone can point me towards possible sources please - namely .....


    1) FWD drive shaft

    2) FWD drop box including spacer

    3) FWD lever (in cab)

    (what apparently happened, before I got the tractor, was that the front of
    the FWD drive shaft came adrift from the flange on the front axle, hit the ground and dug in
    which caused the drop box casting to break apart. The drop box was
    subsequently taken off and the gearbox output was plated over leaving my
    tractor effectively a 2wd. The control lever has been removed from in cab.
    I would like to re-instate all this. )

    4) Rear main glass.


    I am sure there will be loads of other bits and pieces when I get around to
    doing the full restoration.

    I am guessing that 955 parts will be interchangeable and was wondering if anyone knows of anyone with likely donor parts.


    Thanks

    David

    rear window glass can be bought new from kramp i think, i got one last summer, only about 60 . not sure on your other parts, breakers i guess, but 4wd ones 955 or 1055 were not very common.
