Finally got a O this weekend to go with my 102 and 124. After a 7 hour round trip I got home with a 61 O serial # 12950 bolted spindles, no slot in the dash and what im assuming is the hole for the creeper lever. It needs some tlc but I couldn't be happier runs and drives great.

Is that a big crack in the top of the transaxle  1/2 way between the shifter plate and front of the transaxle? I know that the 4 mounting bolt holes crack out on the frame but I've never seen an O transaxle like that.

 

 

IH CC O did have a Hi/Lo range gear box available and that hole in the frame is for that.They are pretty hard to find.

They also had a 9 speed Under/Over drive available but they are very very rare.

No, its not a crack its a casting mark and no cracks in the frame.

Sweet find for sure. I had several in my time. I seen a M&W 9 speed with a missing or broken casting in the mount area sell on eBay a few years back for over $1,400. The item was just two counties east of me....I quit bidding at $500. By the way that #40 boxblade in the pic mounted on the "O" them rear tires is close to the implement?

Love to see another one saved :thumbs:

 

Just a note: since you said you are going to wait a while to tear into it, you might want to drain a little of the fluid out of trans-axle just to make sure it is not sitting with water in it like mine has been... see post "O Model Trans-axle Cleaning"
