Here are a few of the recent arrivals:

1250 Cockshutt, gas, complete, turned rod bearing. It all comes apart.
The gas models of these tractors are obselete, bearings were no longer availlable so the guys only option was to sell for parts, or park it under a tree. These are a Fiat 411R with the Cockshutt paint scheme, so parts fit the Fiat model as well.

2 IH 250 diesel, with 901 loader. This is a running tractor, with nothing wrong. It's coming apart too!!:xmas:

3 Farmall Super A, a reasonably straight tractor, but the engine stuck from sitting. It's a mate to a tractor we got with a light burn. The burnt tractor has a good engine, but the tin is trash.

We've parted out over 200 tractors and have a goodly sized inventory in stock for most makes. Heres a picture of one of our parts shelves for an example, this shelf is heads and starters.

So any problem with shipping stuff Xborder?

A few years ago I went to toronto to buy a NOS rear quater panel for my Mustang. no problem then, but with the new tigher laws, wounder if you have problems shipping stuff.

Ingersoll, we ship xborder quite frequently, and have had no trouble.

Bear, were the bearings for a gas model or a diesel?? The info we have is that for the gas model parts are no longer availlable. A couple of years ago one local guy even contacted Fiat in Italy, and had no luck!!
BTW, the 1250 will come apart anyway, but it's good to know where we could get bearings for any-one else with the same problem!

Bear, my understanding is that Universal only made diesel models. Parts for the diesel engine are no problem (so far) as our after-market catalogue lists parts for them.

WOW!! Thanks Bear, you learn something new every day!:thumbsup: What was the model # of the gas model?? Was it modeled after the 411R as well?

Also, were the bearings regular inserts? I was taking the 1250 apart today, and the inserts seemed to be aluminum! It also looked like the guy had to tap the tabs into the notches himself, they didn't appear to have been pre-cut!:dazed:

there was a 340 and a 550 i saw something in the books about a 640 gas as well but never saw one. all the bearings from universal had to have notches hammered in they almost looked like the old babbitt bearings a lot of times you had to machine them to fit.sleeves also had to be machined to fit the pistons that came in the same rebuild kit

they even made a crawler based on the 640 if you ever find 1 run don't walk in the other direction they sold 1 while i worked there i could drive to the guys place blindfolded. we had a second 1 at the dealer we ended up using for parts because there were no crawler parts in canada or the us. they had to be ordered from romania

This is an update post on the 1250 situation. First, this picture is what a tractor looks like after 3 hours with me and an air wrench!:lmao:

Secondly, it appears that buddy who did the "motor job" didn't know that the bearings had to be machined, and he didn't check clearances (or didn't care) after he installed the crank and bearings! ( sorry about the picture quality!!)

Surprisingly not a lot. I've got a really nice air impact wrench that will zip off most anything. If it won't I go to a 3/4" drive strong bar with a 30" pipe on it. When all else fails I use th eliquid wrench!:D

Here are a couple more new tractors for the parts shelves.:lmao:

The first is a 434 IH diesel, with a good engine. The bearings are gone in the transmision, but the gears are good.

This one is a 3414 TLB. We've already removed the backhoe attachment, but the industrial loader is still there and in good shape.
