Only thing metric with IH I am aware of was some of the front end assemblies on the high horsepower tractors in the 80s.

Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.

In fourth grade(1972) we had to start learning the metric system because the whole country was going to change over to it...they even started putting up speed limit signs in km/hr.

Yep, they never could sucessfully breed a centimeter worm, so the whole project just keeps inching along.

Hard to imagine the millions spent in the half-hearted effort to convert back then...the vehicle speedometers, hwy signs, all those bank temp signs, etc. What did they think would be accomplished by showing BOTH values, eg mph & kph, F & C?? Everyone simply looked at the one they were familiar with! What they should have done was ONLY show metric. If the temp sign said 35C and you were sweating, you would soon learn the relationship. If your speedometer said 120kph, and you got stopped by a policeman, you were probably exceeding the speed limit! On the other hand, if a long line of cars.was honking at you, maybe step on it a bit!

DUH! :headbang

School claimed we were joining the world to simplify trade in the sixties.
Meanwhile my ability to measure with any system suffered. Squint ,count fragments per... Recount to get different number , count again. Think about recess...

We do have neighbors who use the metric system ,as well as many import sources.
