I understand original and keeping it IH, I was just sayin!Of course it is easier.
Some do things because they are easy, while I head towards the challenge, the road less traveled. The journey is what makes up better, stronger, and more experienced individuals.
I have a fairly rare IH that is 99 % +/- a bit original IH. It drives great, runs great hauls great, even with the non lock ring wheels it will look original, and I've put a lot of effort and money into it to keep it that way. While this brake mod may look expensive, it is way cheaper for me to do then the other easy way and I'm enjoying it so.
