I was neither 'endorsing' nor 'disavowing' the bumper - I was only
passing along the info in case some member had an 'interest' in buying it.
The ebay seller stated that it was 'a factory bumper'.
I have never seen a factory 'optional front bumper'. Maybe it is, and
it was a 'rare option'. I don't know - maybe some other member knows
for sure if there was such an option.
I did find it 'strange' that it would interfere with the front
'lifting mechanism' as used by the IH front blade & IH snowthrower. Of
all the original IH 'attachments' - they all seem to be engineered to
'fit with each other'. Like the 1050A Loader, the 3160 & 3160A Mower,
the 54A Front Plow Frame, the 3pt Hitch, even the 'Sims Cab' (which
seems to be either co-engineered or simply made to 'match' all these
- Dwayne,I have looked through all of my parts
catalogs,brochures,manuals,etc.and there is no bumper to be found.
Probably the one on Ebay was fabricated by the dealer or owner,if IH
would have made one it no doubt would have been more subtantial like
the ones you see on the Ford "N" tractors.
In my previous post (sorry if it came off as harsh) I was trying to
save a member from being duped.Didn't help though...someone paid over
$125 for 24" of C channel and a couple of 3/16" brackets.
