  1. I got one for my new to me '40 H a couple of weeks ago. Yep, they are still sending them out. With the pandemic, it may take a few weeks to get one, but be patient.
  2. My 1949 C has the Marvel Schebler carb.
  3. Agree, every brand has their pros, and their cons. The green versus the red is like the Ford versus the Chevy, people are loyal to their brand, usually without any sound basis or merits, and the other brand to them is junk. I'm sure the Oliver and the Allis guys can find fault with the IH equipment also.
  4. I drove this H twice now, first time just for a minute, this time for several minutes. I have been procrastinating since August 25 on this one - it runs and drives good. It will need the gas tank clean and a front tire, which I have on order now. It will go well with my No. 8 LIttle Genuis 2 bottom plow and pulling an IH hay wagon (whenever I get that project started and completed). I would love to have a JD two cylinder tractor, more likely a B, especially an unstyled B. But prices on good two cylinders seem to be running higher than a comparable Farmall, which I have 3, a '47 Cub, a '44 B and traded a '50 Cub for a '49 C with cultivators and cash.
  5. Well it looks like this one will be coming home with me in a few weeks. I drove it again last Saturday, this time about 10 to 15 minutes, taking it through the gears, etc.
  6. It's been a while since I been to a plow day. We have them in the fall in the Marhasville, Missouri area, when we can get a field to plow. The Missouri River bottoms are excellent farm land, and we can usually get a farmer to let us in his field to plow.
  7. Currently I have two Farmall Cubs, a '47 and a '50, and a '44 Farmall B with Henderson Midget loader. I would love to add a H or a C to the mix.
  8. BTW, this tractor isn't mine - yet.
  9. ran across of a video recently of a guy starting a 1939 John Deere A for the first time in 8 years. Anyways, I browse through some of his videos and then I realize he was from Missouri. Turns out he's only about 30 miles from me. I sent him a message through youtube and then I found myself at this place. He's a Massey Harris guy as that what he used on the farm growing up. But he has two Farmall Hs, a couple of John Deeres, a few Allis Chalmers, a few Olivers and a lot of other interesting things. He has a Fordson with a trip plow sitting next to his drive way as you pull up. Anyways, I drove his 1940 Farmall H. He has to clean the gas tank so he has a pony tank on it now. He made a couple of small videos of me driving it, and I put both together to make one, small video. Here is is: Enjoy the video, though it isn't very long.
  10. A couple of weeks back, after using the '44 B to move some stuff, I took both it and my '47 Cub out for a little jaunt up the side road.
