“Restoration Ready” IH Tractor Parts
Wyant says the company is licensed by IH. In the case of Rochester gauges, it gets the gauge housings from Rochester and then assembles the stainless steel bezels and glass.
“Rochester Gauges was the original gauge supplier to International Harvester through the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s,” says Wyant. “Our gauges have the correct part number to match the year of the tractor you are restoring. If you are striving to complete an original restoration, our gauges are the most accurate and original available on the market today.”
The line, which includes 20 categories, continues to expand, according to Wyant. “We have started doing pto covers for IH equipment in the past 6 months,” he says. “We will be adding battery boxes this winter. We now have the dies made to stamp the embossed IH emblem into them. We keep adding products as we go.”
Adding products doesn’t happen overnight. Wyant explains that it takes time to find a pristine part, such as a fuel line, that is unhampered and very straight. Only then can it be duplicated.
“We just started making IH 450 diesel fuel lines,” says Wyant. “We waited a year to find something suitable, and now we are making them.”
Wyant suggests FARM SHOW readers looking for parts have the year, make, model and serial number handy when they call. “There were changes in parts over the years that can be matched to serial numbers,” says Wyant. “It helps a lot to have that information handy. The serial number is as important as anything else. We’ve never had anyone send back a fuel line that didn’t fit if we had the tractor’s serial number.”
Parts can be ordered online or by phone.
