Is OEM going to be at Cubarama? Is it them who make the replacement serial tags?

Don't know if they will be there or not but they do have the tags [page 27 of the catalog ($19.00)] 8)

HR, I got my serial tag for Missy from them, but had some problems. Rivets are too big and holes not quite correctly spaced. Also i wasn't too happy aobut the $8 shipping and handling for an item that came in an envelope with 67 cents postage. There was a post by one of the members about another source, but i don't have the name handy. You might do an archive search for serial tans and see if you can find it.

I would suggest going to Pilot Knob. Honest, straight forward and not the problems you have with Dale at OEM.

Robert Diener advertises in the Red Power Magazine a former IH engineer has the best Ser# Tags. Great to work with and knows the correct tag for your tractor.

Does he have an ad in Red Power? (Not a subscriber...yet) Perhaps a web site?

Harold if & when you get a new tag from whomever let us know the results of the quality & your experience with the seller. I am thinking of getting a new tag made and just puting it over the old beat-up original. I will probably have to hunt up some slightly longer rivets.

Just curious :?: Why not remove the old one :?: It's fairly easy, and the old rivets can be saved.

The original tag is already removed and the surface painted. I just thought it would be nice to keep the original tag with the tractor. If I dont nail it back on to its partner I will surely lose it.

Cool

That's kind of cool leaving the old one on there - for documentation if nothing else.

ditto on John's experience. I think i'll give Pilot Knob a try next time. Rob Dieners $69 price tag is hard to swallow except if you were doing an exceptional restoration. if he could lower that, business would no doubt improve. just my 2 cents :)
