  1. Engine harmonics crank rotation to pistons balance Four cylinder engines are terrible for that with no harmonic balancer certain RPM's on engines cause that, if left at that RPM you would have catastrophic failure All Farmall M's at 3/4 throttle will rattle the draw bar ??? https://www.enginelabs.com/news/understanding-engine-harmonics-and-vibrations-with-fluidampr/
  2. Dell; the bearing you show is a plain ball roller bearing, they are good for radio loads up & down not so good for thrust loads side to side. The factory put in a small relieve cutout to load the balls into the bearing. So it don't matter which way you install the bearing. Bearing like this hold there position in a pocket, clip ring, shoulder to shoulder with spacers, interference fit, seal caps, bolt rings. butt they do not load. they would not last they need free play run. or next burn up, bearing failure All the ball bearings in H or M are that way. Checking my old notes the rear shaft pinion up date went from 8 balls to 11 balls. make sure your puller gets that. Get a book on bearings ? ? In 1990 I changed all the bearing in my SUPER.
  3. I traded for this I-H trip harrow late last year, so I ran it and it worked OK, It's 5 feet wide 8 foot over all. You know with it being all steel there is no rubber tires to change, they work great for gardens. The springs needed to be replaced and that's what I worked on last winter. I just put them in the other day? ?
  4. I been shopping for new tires and there is a lot on the market for the 13.6x38? Harvest King GTK Alliance Carlisle Firestone Good Year Titan I have been looking at Carlisle and GKT not sure? Any one have experience with the new stuff? The M rears are pretty wore they pulled every thing from stumps to plows time for new? ? ?
  5. The I-H mufflers were galv. coated and lasted for ever, but today you would have to hunt for them, put a new Stanley on it will last a few tractor shows looks original save a lot of time and money. I had one come in this summer I was so proud of it I took a picture.
  6. 20" bar works good for every thing, ? and it's easy on the back. ?
  7. I guess now that you have looked, and your all excited to buy ? ? ? ask the owner for a price?&$ to see where he is at?? ? fine out what's going to work. Lets see the wheels are worth $1000 the fenders are worth $500 you get the rest for $500.00 ☺️ as is not running? Mount some rubber on the steel wheels and you could drive it right threw town in the parade. Money is no object, getting it is the object $
  8. For you interest is a big part of any thing, most all the 10-20s I see have no paint on them. I rebuilt a water pump for a guy he was really to old to work on his tractor any more. This one your showing complete on steel wheels $2000.00, it's not doing any good setting there take it home and service it up, try it out and see what you think?
  9. cut split and in the basement, the wood stove will last a 12 hour run and can run all winter with out power.
  10. It's nice to have a new saw?
  11. I'm and expert I will tell you?? ?️ From the letter series to the number series were a lot of mechanical changes. The split two piece weights were easy to handle easy to load.?☺️ Get out the measurement tape and check.
  12. pt756 put some new battery's in your electronic hood? for occasional use all of the above. welding helmets with the flip up lens works well for set up, tack welding, production welding, with the flip up you can grind, wire buff, burn, run a cut off wheel, you use as a shield for safety. I tested and welded on the Alaska pipe line project in the 70's, I flew from Seattle Sea- tac airport to Anchorage Alaska from there took a bus to the Valdez tank farm.
  13. The 1949 Farmall MD - diesel, starts on gas and switched to diesel is all mechanical.? ? mags spark on the bench, mags don't spark on the tractor, mags are getting grounded out on tractor ? ?? check the mechanical rotating switch in the manifold, opening & closing butt butt boss, no butt's just do what I tell you!!??##%%$$ ?
  14. if your 6 volt system is complete, keep it. 6 volts on and H is a strong setup. ?️ ? Remember and this is for every one, The less you do the more you preserve.
