I brought this little guy home yesterday. Does anyone know where I might find an operators manual? I have done several web searches and come up with nothing, even on eBay.

That's a nice find! Those little guys are hard to come by, as there were very few made. I'l take a look through my stuff tomorrow & see if I can dig
up any info. Don't think I have a manual. All adjustments should be the same as for the other two sizes of threshers. Belt lengths may differ. What is
the machine number stenciled on there? I can at least give you a date for the machine. It would be on the left side, on the panel to the right of the
main cylinder pulley. I would venture a guess at '25 or early '26 due to the lack of steps on the tailings elevator, small hubs on the wheels (no
roller bearings) & it doesn't look like there is a roller bearing type box on the rear rack crank. Which means there should only be five on that
machine. Two on the cylinder shaft & three on the fan shaft for the wind stacker. I do see something interesting. It looks like a lower return on the
tailings elevator, about half way up on the underside. That's a feature that would be found on the early harvester-threshers. I'll see what it says
about that in the master parts catalog in the AM.

Mike

The numbers are very faded but the best we can tell is B098302A. I do have a parts book coming that includes this model but I also try to get operators manuals too. A lot of the wood needs replaced from being old and dry and the bottom deck needs replaced. I also have to fix the clean grain elevator. Someone tried backing it in a door that was too short.

I have one like that that belonged to my dad. He was about to let the scrap man haul it away, but I volunteered to take it off his hands. That was about 30 years ago, and I'm sure glad I saved it. Those 20 inch IHC threshers are really rare. Yours is the only other one I've ever seen. They were only made for a few years in the late 1920's. I still use mine occasionally to thresh a few acres of oats.
The operators' manual for this machine would be the same one used for the 22 and 28 inch machines, and should be easy to find on eBay or at swap meets. Good luck with yours, they are well built machines and well worth saving.

I like it. I think mine had the unloading auger off the elevator but someone took it off. Do you know if there was originally a tool box on them?

Mine has a tool box on the back end of the machine. It's part of the wood platform to stand on when making adjustments to the blower pipe. That platform seems to be missing on yours, or maybe it was never there to begin with. You have the earliest style of this machine, where the tool box was on the right side just above the rear wheel.

Alan, could I get you to measure the tongue on yours? I need a new one. I think it s about 8 feet long and tapered but not sure what the dimensions should be.

The tongue on mine is 90 inches (7.5 feet) long. I'm quite sure it's original. I believe IH used southern yellow pine for most of their hitches.

The smaller machines are what was used in my part of the country, the big were just too big for here

Leroy, do you know of any parts machines that might have a usable unloading auger?

Could this be what you are looking for? To be sold tomorrow at a farm auction about 100 miles from me.
