Does any one have their old buildsheet? This one is from my great grandpa's M. His name was Floyd D. Keller and he purchased the tractor new to move buildings which was way more common in the 40's and 50's. I have his big jacks, this build sheet, and the owners manual but no tractor. I would like to have it, but it was sold at an auction in the early 80's around Crawfordsville Indiana. Does anyone have their original paperwork? I am thinking about framing this one or donating it to an IH museum. I love Farmalls and hope you like the photo and the list of normal options from Chicago. This one was shipped by rail. It would have been neat to have seen that in color. Read letter series tractors on a train;)

I've looked through lots of IH material, but I've never seen a build sheet before. Thanks for posting this, hope you get some leads on the tractor!

Very neat, I've never seen one of those before. Looks like tractor was '51 year model. Interesting to me to note that the tractors engine & chassis serial numbers. I always like to see the spread in between them, that sheet shows a difference of 9000, for probably a mid year build. My tractor, with October '51 cast dates and a 282XXX serial number is exactly 12000 ahead of it's engine number.

Sure hope someday you'll come across it...

Love it. Thanks for posting. I also saved the picture to my hard drive. What is cool, it shows the rim width as 11 inches and 12-38 tires. I just mounted 2 13.6-38s on 11 inch rims. They look good, glad to see they are "factory correct" width! ;)

I would frame it and keep it at home. I hope somebody sees this and knows where the tractor is.

I have the "line sheet", I think that is what it was called for my 1972 IH grain truck.

I was told by a mechanic once to copy it, keep a copy or two in a safe place, where the mice couldn't get to it (like in the glovebox). He said it was invaluable in working on those older trucks cause IH was bad about switching brands of components right in the middle of a production run.
