  1. Farmall f 20 exhaust elbow

    Fordson House F-20 Engine Parts list Click the link it is about half way down the page, Exhaust Outlet Elbow is I'm guessing what you are looking for. $34.95 Part 2595-D
  2. Farmall f 20 exhaust elbow

    Look up the Fordson House in Escanaba, MI. I get a lot of my F-20 parts there and last time I checked they have them for like $35. I believe this is a new reproduction.
  3. First things I would check if it loses power when hot are coil, condensor, and if it has been 12 volt converted and has a resistor check that. Those are all parts that are common to have heat issues. I bought an M that would pop more when it was hot, turned out to be a few valves were tight. Another good first step is to make sure when check and adjust your valve clearance. On some of these old tractors god knows the last time it was checked and adjusted.
  4. Spare tire cover

    I have an IH logo on the one I have on my fifth wheel. I got small cans of tractor paint from tractor supply and gave the cover to some of my students that were in art (benefits of being a high school teacher). So if you lay one out it can be painted on with tractor paint.
  5. Farmall C Demonstrator

    They were made in early 1950 so the serial number should be close to the 1950 starting number, 47010. Also check casting codes. The pieces should be a T casting code with a date early in the year like Jan or Feb. or be a late S code (1949 casting that was used the next year in production). If they are a late T code the parts were cast too late in the year and I wouldn't think they would be on a demonstrator.
  6. 1917 Case Steam Engine

    Sure wish I had a way to haul it or somewhere to put it. One of my life goals to own a steam engine one day.
  7. Maybe dumb question, why no 1006 ?

    I always figured part of the thinking at the time of not going bigger with a row crop than the M was that they had the W-9 for big acres and also mainly that if you look at production numbers the H outsold the M and was their best selling tractor. Management probably figured that if the H was well outselling the M, why build a bigger row crop? I get that with hindsight that is where the trend went and I'm sure there would have been a justifiable market but I can see the thinking of the management being that the market is stronger for the smaller row crop so why build even bigger.
  8. M and H hauling

    I ended up taking just the M to the show but I did just get a tri axle trailer that once I finish fixing the wiring and going through the bearings can haul them both in the future. For reference for anyone else her Farmall M went across the scales at the show at 4980 lbs with 15.5-38 tires with no ballast and no wheel weights, full of gas with belt pulley and belly pump which was a pleasant surprise for hauling since I figured even with no added weight it would be at least 5300.
  9. What's Your Heritage?

    My dad's side is from England and Germany and my mother's side is pretty much all Finnish like many that moved into our area for mining.
  10. 1957 S120 4x4

    Just brought home a 1957 S120 4x4. My brother had it for many years but lost interest so it finally came home with me. It is set up as a plow truck but I plan to fix it up and take all that stuff off though I did used to plow the farm with it and it is a beast! Anyway, I am working on getting things fixed up so I can drive it to local shows. I did an ignition tune up and it will run on gas poured in the carb or run for about 5 seconds at a time but the carb leaks bad and the diaphragms are all shot so not much running until my rebuild kit gets here but have a few questions I'm sure someone knows the answer to.What oil would be recommended to run in the BD240? When I got it running for about 10 seconds it went right up to 50-60 lbs of oil pressure with the old oil still in it, but will have to see what it does once I get it running and warmed up. Guess the main idea is it does seem to be a pretty tight engine (hopefully). I am guessing like a 10W30 or with just summer running maybe a 10W40? Would the old manual transmission and transfer case just be 80W90 like I'm assuming the axles are? Also looking for a source for any more 6x7.25 bolt pattern 17.5" wheels for it. They are the one piece (not split ring) which I like but I don't have a spare so I would like to find at least one more wheel with that bolt pattern if anyone knows of good locations or yards to call. Thanks
  11. M and H hauling

    The tractors/equipment trailer I pull with my F350 Dually diesel so not worried about the truck in this case but fair enough to ask, I see some interesting rigs out on the road sometimes! I also have a 1/2 ton for the camper but that would never pull both tractors. If I end up doing it I will pull the weights off the H and probably the belly pump too. Should drop some weight.
  12. M and H hauling

    My wife wants to take both her tractors to a show we have coming up in July. It is about 260 miles from home so not doing multiple trips. She has an H and an M and our equipment trailer is only 10k gross so I can only take them one at a time. A local trailer rental place has an equipment trailer they can rent that is a 14k or 15k gross with an 11k load (cargo) rating. I can't imagine they would be over but I have never had either on a scale and don't really trust all the weights I find on different sites all over the internet as they vary so much so would it be reasonable to put both an H and M on a trailer that is rated for 11k lbs? Neither has loaded tires, both have belly pumps and belt pulleys and no wheel weights on either (the H has one set but they will come off for paint and don't have to go back on for the show). Thanks for any help.
  13. SA or A??

    My local tractor supply has a 6.5x13 3500 lb utility trailer that they rent out pretty reasonable that would fit a Super A. Maybe check at a TSC if you have one nearby.
  14. Super C fan/generator pulleys

    I ordered a new assembly for my Super A as mine is getting pretty loose just haven't installed it yet but inspected it when it got here and the new ones are sealed bearings as mentioned rather than the old oil filled bushing on the originals. The original assembly in my A had the oil seal go bad years ago so I removed the fill plug and replaced with a grease fitting and just keep it full of grease now. Works but it makes a heck of a mess so that's why I went with the new replacement. I figure most any used assemblies the oil seals won't be much better than the old worn out ones I already have.
  15. Farmall M with Sheppard Diesel

    Yeah I don't think it turned out very popular once people actually put them to work. I have seen one at a show but I don't think I have pics anymore. There is a guy that comes to the same shows/clubs that I do that has an M with a 2-71 detroit diesel swap and I would much prefer that tractor. I think they are rated around 65 hp and he has a straight pipe on it for pulling and running the saw mill and it sounds awesome! May get tiring listening to it all day in the field but that is what ear plugs are for.
