  1. M, it does have the large cylinders, i will update my post as to not wreck this one.
  2. I agree. When i am running the T14 and the right track clutch slips and the engine will only hit on 3 and the blade leaks down too fast... I dream of what you accomplished with your rebuild. Then i check the bank acct, clean the spark plug, and turn right. Great job.
  3. Chris, im no expert and learning as i go myself. But as you don't have any replies , i will suggest yes by the book adjustment of the clutches and brakes will make a difference. When running my 14, i will pull a clutch handle in preparation to stomp a brake pedal to get turned. It is no dainty process, and after first few days i was elbow and leg sore
  4. Gary, Great pictures. There is something about a persons smile in an old car, not to mention there is always a story to come during the ride! I love that part. I put together a model A coupe affectionately known as "buckets", well, cause that's how I got it I just got it out yesterday and went by and took a lap around the country block with my grandmother. We both needed out of the house after the winter! I too am in short supply on the seat ordeal. I finally got the john deere combine seat cut of the original seat support and all of the pieces put back together for it to be how it is supposed to be. Everything was hanging in the barn, but the seat is a later replacement with the crimped canvas. Do you have the mechanical mag shutoff? It seems like I can see the cable but cant tell well. Originally its was mounted in the hole just in front of the left brake pedal. I see yours has a strap added as it was terrible hard to get to. I have the piece on the mag, but just an aftermarket choke cable and have never seen one to know what to look for. I too always wondered if our tractor had lights. What's on it now is a later model headlight bar and a set of Oliver lights. Seems a lot of work to go through to not buy different bulbs, but I know on more than one occasion grandpa left a tree tied to the tractor in gear and went and cut it down. So anything could have happened Thanks for the stories and this thread. I have enjoyed it many times. Adam
  5. This post has something I have been watching for, for quite a while. 1939 H 36" rear shoes. I guess all the early ones had 36" but never see any of them anymore. Anyone got a spare set? Adam Adam, The rim has a split ring that is on the outside of the 38" tires. Gary Oh I see. My parts manual shows several rear rim options, all split rings in 36" diameter for tractor serial number FBH 501 to 1226. No other serial number notes are made for any other size. I always wanted a set just for the idea of something different on the '39 Don't mean to hijack threads. If anyone wants to talk about this more, pop up a new thread over on the technical forum. Adam Adam, It won't hurt to hijack or derail this thread. It probably won't go anywhere anyway. Our 1939 Farmall H is FBH 681, or the 181st one built. What is your serial number on yours? I've loved these old 1939 models for a long, long time. They made so many subtle little, itty bitty changes that first year. Ralph, That is a fantastic old picture you posted of circa 1940. I love those old cars of that era. And you own one too! I got this picture off of Facebook of a 1954 Mercury hot rod. I thought you might like it too? 1954 Mercury hot rod.jpg Anson, That must have been a pretty popular Texaco station you guys have down there? I sure like it. Gary My H is 784. It was my grandpa's first tractor, first dad drove, first dad and I restored together Bottom line, it is the cause of my "problem" LOL I agree I like the early 39's. over the years I have collected a lot of the little early stuff for it and hope to do a nice freshen up on it one of these days. With dad again of course. Adam
