• To ALL forum users - As of late I have been getting quite a few private messages with questions about build ups here on the forum, or tech questions about your personal project. While I appreciate the interest, sending me a private message about these topics distracts from, and undermines the purpose of having a forum here. During the day I wear many hats as a small business owner-operator and I work tirelessly to provide the absolute best service possible to you, our valued customer. When I created this forum I rounded up some of the best minds I knew so that any tech question you might have could be asked and answered by either myself or one of my highly experienced moderators, this way the next time this same question is asked the answer can be easily found and utilized by the next IH enthusiast having the same question. This allows me the freedom to run the day to day operations of the business and minimize the impact to shipments and shop activities that these distractions can cause. It is of the up most importance for me to complete the daily tasks in order to best take care of you our customer, all the while providing you a forum to get the level advice and input you have come to expect and deserve from the premier IH shop in the country.

    So with that I ask that anyone with a question about one of our build ups or a general tech question to please use the forum as it was intended. I am absolutely available by telephone to answer your questions as well but at times may direct you back to our website to better field your question or questions. Most other private messages I will be glad to answer for you.

    Thank you for your understanding.

Windsheild washer bag?

I'm beginning to restore a 69 1100D 4x4 truck. As I'm sure most of you know, for us beginners there is so much to learn. So, my first of many future questions is: What on Earth do you guys use to replace those windshield washer bags?

This is the first time I've seen a bag used, and not a plastic reservoir of sorts. When perusing through IH America's parts list I saw a used one for an astounding $100. Now don't get me wrong, as a capitalist, I'm all for making an honest buck. However, it wasn't pretty looking and that just seems like quite the gamble.

So what are the alternatives? What have others used?

Oh, well that was easy. However, my 69 definitely had/has the bag. It's falling apart with numerous holes in it, but it's still there. Maybe the earlier production models had the bag and then they wised up and switched to the bottle.

Regardless, I don't think I'll be sinning too much by using the bottle opposed to the bag.

Thanks a million!
