IH 37 Disc Saga
I bought a used International 37 transport disc recently:
These were considered good discs, and I feel this 9’7″ model built between 1956 and 1959 woudl be a good fit for my Allis D17. The big challenge for this disc is replacing the disc gang bearings. This earlier model used a “spool” style bearing that is no longer available from IH. My plan is to upgrade this disc to the new frictionless (ball bearing) style. I am able to get all the parts from IH except the mounting plate, which fortunately can be fabricated. The problem with theses parts is they are very expensive when bought at a Case-IH dealer.
I will document my progress in upgrading/reapiring this machine, and my attempt at getting these parts at a lower price. If possible I will offer these parts for sale to other IH 37 Disc owners who would like to take on the same project.
