  1. IH Golf 12 ???

    The Fairway 12 is an early style O-12 with I-12 (industrial) brakes. They never got the changes in 1936-37 that produced the Modified O-12 (longer front axle with 600x16 tyres. side hinged seat and foot operated brakes). The standard version was on 8 inch wide 22 inch diameter front wheels and 16 inch wide 40 inch diameter rear wheels with very small spike lugs. Pneumatic tyres were an option whereas they were standard on the O-12. The 12 series tractors had internal expanding brakes on the differential shaft while the I-12 and Fairway 12 had LARGE internal expanding brakes in drums on the rear wheels. With a large roller on behind the big brakes would be needed. However, the brakes on my O-12 will happily stall the engine.
  2. 1939 farmall rims

    Matt above referred to an early W-4 with 3 piece rims. I have a 1941 W-4 with the 3 piece 24 inch rims. The first WD-6 (WDBK-516) in the background of the photograph also has the 24 inch 3 piece rims
  3. 1939 farmall rims

    Early Farmalls H and M had 36 inch split rims. Here is a photograph of the one my grandfather bought in early 1940 (could have been shipped from US in 1939 as it took a while to arrive in NZ
  4. Why/where are the other countries?

    Another from New Zealand. (at present in Denmark, just been in Iceland and Norway)
  5. W4 Cast Wheel Removal

    One wheel was a bit sloppy but the other defied all attempts of removal. Set large steel angle pulling fram plus heat to NO avail. In the end took of whole axle housing with bearings and axle to a machine shop who used a 10 ton press to get the wheel off.
  6. farmall cast iron seat

    All the 1920 and 1930s IHC tractors had the pressed steel MB488B seat (also found on mowers and binders). The later 1930s Farmalls switched to the M22967 pressed steel seat. There were earlier cast McCormick and Deering seats but they do not seemed to be used much on tractors. My 1918 Titan 10-20 owners manual shows a 2933Tseat but a later 1920s version shows a M488 seat.
  7. Tire Pressure Info in W-4 Operators Manual

    I suspect that IHC just copied the table form that used by the Farmall H etc. where dual narrow tyres were at option. My Farmall A and W-4 manuals both have the same table and I am not aware of examples of a Farmall A with dual wheels on the back,
  8. Family's First Tractor

    The 52 combine could have either the Continental y69, for the early combines the only choice as the Cub did not come out until 1947, the U-1 (C-60 Cub engine) was a later option. PTO drive was standard but required a bigger tractor than a Farmall A or B to run it, hence engine option. The $@ was PTO only and designed to be run with a Farmall A or B. A Farmall H or W-4 would easily run the 42. If the picture is 1941, then only a 42 combine. I thought that the steel wheels were a war-time option and fo the USA wasn't quite war-time yet.
  9. Family's First Tractor

    It has to be a 42 combine as the 52 was not made before about 1944. It appears to have the steel wheels not the 6.00x16 wheels, I have never seen a photograph of a 42 combine without the normal pneumatic tyres.
  10. Splitting stands

    There are drawing for Farmall A and B splitting stands in the IH maintenance book for the Farmall A, Farmall B and the U-2 engine. very good stand, I had one m ade for my Super -A
  11. Farmall Super A decals

    My Super A is march 1948. I had fun finding the correct decals as most available had only McCormick which was not correct before June 1949 and the white background Super A came out about the same time as the Super C, 1951 to 1952.
  12. McCormick Deering W30

    The IH Blue Ribbon Serviceman's Handbook GSS-1356 gives 95psi at cranking speed for Farmall A and Farmall H distillate engines. This would be about what I would expect for a W-30 which was designed for kerosene as the fuel. The Farmall H distillate was about 4.5:1 wheras the kerosene engine was 4.4:1 compression ratios.
  13. McCormick Deering W30

    Probably similar to other MccCormick-Deering tractors of the time about (O-12, F-12) 4.4 to 1
  14. B mag timing puzzler

    No, The distributor turns at half the speed of the magneto drive, one turn of distributor to two turns of the engine for four-stroke engine.
  15. New Zealand-Quake

    Here are some more photos, including s new dam on one of rivers. It may rake a long time to rebuild the road and railway North of Kaikoura, a large amount of rubble and the mountain sides will need to be stabilized. At Kaikoura coast rose about 1.5 m (5 feet) and further North towards Ward about 2 m,
