Check on the Yesterdays Tractor forum. They usually have a bunch of stuff for sale. If you were talking Fords, they I would be able to help you out a bit more

With the IH, you can still get a lot of parts directly from case.

I used Messicks (www.messicks.com). If you click on the CaseIH icon at the upper left, it will pull up a catalog page where you can enter your model and find parts. Going through Messicks, you get pricing - the same catalog is available at caseih.com but has no pricing.

What I did was get the part number I needed, then pop that into Google and/or ebay. If someone has a non-oem equivalent, chances are that the OEM p/n will be in the description, or if someone has a used one, that will show up.

Can't speak to the White.

I also used www.steinertractor.com - sometimes a bit pricey, but they have a great operation and a lot of stuff in stock.

MyTractor.com
TractorByNet.com

These may have people who know where to find things.

Good luck

don't what to sound strange, but, i'm starting to get excited. they look like good places to start. i got the ih from dad. he passed away about 4 yrs ago. he left it sitting in the back yard about 3 yrs.. no h2o in oil or popped freeze plugs. hoses shot. all i got to remember is that this is a spring project for me to start. right now.....going to start winter project and build atleast 1 cabinet(maybe 2) for more food storage. got about 326 sqft shelving now and going for another 100 sqft+- more. thanx for the good starting point.

I use Ebay a lot for outdated obsolete parts. After looking for parts for a old Waukesha engine I finally found what I needed there, it did take a year though.

Well. Been busy with tractor. Tranny is apart. Engine out. Want to thank posts above for locating some parts. Great help. Also tilled garden with hand tiller 2 weeks ago. With the storm that just went through ......... we got 8+ inches of snow. Just when you thought it was gone. Mother nature comes and gets you.
