  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 ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜ 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
  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 day๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿค 
  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 new๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ‘ฝ ๐Ÿ‘€
  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 โ˜บ๏ธ 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?? ?๏ธ 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.?โ˜บ๏ธ 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. ?๏ธ ? Remember and this is for every one, The less you do the more you preserve.

  16. Super MTA radiator now that's a hot subject ? A new core job would be great, good experience shops are few and long gone.? There is a lot of working dimensions on the radiator to hold, width, height steering shaft go's threw the top pan. the radiator is fit inside a steel frame and together hold the front & top hood in place. the radiator mounts on two rubber pads, with two 3/8 studs, springs & nuts that's all ? ? the weight of a full radiator is a lot.? let us know what way you go, I'm going to need some radiators also, thanks
  17. grease guns will pump 500 lb's psi ? I have a needle tip for the serks zerks you cant get too ? ? ? Keep your grease where it's 70 + degrees so when it's time to go, the grease will flow.
  18. American made pistol grip style grease gun. go to antique shops and garage sales that where the old stuff says made in the USA.? I bought my pistol grease gun 35 years ago, that's all I ever used, it's the best for chasing grease serks. buying today Napa, Car-quest, China brand stuff the Gov. chased all the big and little company's off to China and that built up their powers. use the red colored grease
  19. Been there done that: I took apart three Farmall M's washed every out, replaced the bearings and put them back together. You need a good frame stand to hold the whole tractor off the shop floor about 4" inch with tires on. With a moving hoist above to handle the heavy parts. I built the stand about 25 years ago it will hold H or M, I'm putting a rebuilt H motor in right now. seal coat inside; Sprayon red insulating varnish, resists oils, moisture, acids, Alkalies trivia; What color is superman's cape?
  20. I hear ya; In the past I've told people we live way out in the sticks ( where It's safe and quiet ) and they would say ow' you live way out? with no interest? ? โ˜น๏ธ They are not saying that anymore they are thinking & wishing. ?
  21. Bitty; was you eating a sandwich when you took the pictures?
  22. Test hydraulic operating pressure at 1800 -1900 psi, that will tell the pump & relief valve are working proper. I-H relief valve $ 800.00 bucks, WOW ? ?
  23. OK every one here seems to be on the same channel ? I have a few things to say about bolts. I have 43 year's in the Industry. bolts are not round with .025th. + or - round out, nor is the head square to the shank, nor is the surface square to the head of the bolt. So you have high spots touching only, and threw time the bolt gets loose or breaks, hammer setting helps, draw them in even, use a 4 foot torque wrench. In a quarry garage the guys put on new cutting blades on front end loaders, the bolt heads are counter sunk with a keeper slot, so they beat on the head and impact the nut
  24. I've cleaned 4 tanks now, So with one good way. one gal. of super clean, bought at Wal-Mart ? use rubber gloves, keep your hands out, it well dry your skin and kill a layer pull tank, remove sediment bowl, and plug pour in one gal. of super, shake it all around inside leave it set in all four position for a day tie a rag on a stick and work what you can on the 5th day, pull plug, drain back into super jug wash out well with water, blow dry install tank ? So as long as the tank is clean, your going to have rust on the walls and the sediment bow
