  1. Depending on tire size, M has 4 or 5 height adjustment holes If five holes. 14-3/8, 16-1/4, 17-7/8, 19-5/8 and 21-3/8 above ground. Not many 4 hole adjustment drawbars left around and if you have a early M with the longer angles from axle housing down to drawbar and longer rods from angle to drawbar adjustment holes the heights will be different also.
  2. Guessing you have a pull type hitch on the splitter. Provided the PTO shaft is long enough and doesn't hit the drawbar use a hitch plate bolted on bottom of drawbar with a spacer or two between if needed. Use one or two 3/4 inch thick plates myself if wanted. Splitter should be a light load so spacers won't hurt if it works.
  3. Have some instruction manuals from later 39 to 1-31-40 for H and M, like a owners manual and a parts manual combined. They only show the clamp type wheels and one says order pneumatic tires and rims from the manufacture. PC-28 m parts manual printed in 1-28-43 shows both type wheels.
  4. Put several abused miles on a scout in the middle to later sixties. That engine was the toughest thing on it.
  5. Didn't mean you were arguing, just that a lot of people do. Don't think we will ever know how many have the covid or flu bug enter the body of ones that it never progresses. Good luck with getting the facts. Thanks for trying.
  6. Both can be bad. Why argue over what is worse. Won't mater a bit to people that have loved ones die what killed them.
  7. Would lift the two bolt cover with line up. Look to see if the little lever on the throttle tube shaft goes down when the hand throttle is pushed forward. If so start engine and see if it stays down. If yes you have a problem from there to carburetor or including the carburetor. If lever doesn't stay down make sure the governor spring is pushing the governor fork to rear and keeping it there unless hand throttle is pulled back.

    450 Farmall

    If the 450 comes with the wheel hubs everything will fit except the steering arm that bolts to shaft the narrow front did and the rear saddle that bolts to the frame rails. But getting those two parts without buying a complete wide front can be a problem.

    Didn't see picture before I answered other post. Governor is a Thompson Rocket. Throttle tube on most of those looks like the top picture. Looking at one installed on the governor housing the neck down on tube will have a sharper angle than a IH tube. Bottom two in picture is for a Thomson H and IH H on bottom. Notice the Thomson looks a little bigger in diameter and doesn't have a number on it. Thomson also used those tubes on the Thomson two weight governors.

    If the weights have no swing pins it's probably the rocket, weights with pins to swing a M&W. After seeing picture a Thompson rocket.
  11. Not sure but thinking the 9 series had the date code near the same place as this D-264. Rear and below the front coolant side cover. with injection pump in place you need to get the right angle to see. D264 blocks cast number 264437R1 through R-4 were located there. On R-5 D-264 and D-281 blocks they moved the date code back to the fuel filter area. Was the number you found on the block real plain to read. Block cast number should be 8124D and maybe a K. If they went as high as DX on the block it's probably a newer block than 49.
  12. Yes that's the engine serial number. WDCBM is the code letters for a diesel engine in a WD-9. Probably the original engine.
  13. Always interested in different things that show up. Does the block have a cast number above the size like picture and a date code shown in another picture? Later 400 block in picture. Early ones ended the cast number with R1 and that engine date code is a 56 model.
  14. Yes a SM had C-264 on block and also 400 tractors. SH had C-164. Most all M tractors don't have the engine size on block unless a diesel. To date I only found 2 late original M engines with C-248 on them. Find replacement blocks every now and then with C-248 on them and some of those are actually the same cylinder size as a C-264 or C-281 on the inside. Poster was asking about block casting numbers and I thought he wanted those instead of engine size numbers. Could be wrong.
  15. Original SM 356980R1. From memory I think original SH was 358068R1. Replacement blocks could have a different number.
  16. Installing sleeves, pistons in a later 400 block with the 1 inch piston pins. Noticed one cylinder had a problem with rod fitting to crank just right. First thought was the aftermarket piston didn't have the pin hole square with piston. After installing another rod and piston in the hole with no problems. I then tried the piston out of hole with problem on the other rod I just tried, fit good. Went to measuring the rod and found the crank bore and pin bore were out of square by .018. Put rod in press and went past square and the back to square. Not sure if I can trust it to stay, anyone els
  17. 591 RPM pto speed no load at 1595 to 1600 RPM. Probably work, think most M engines will put out more torque than 205 but not sure what they are at flywheel as the engine probably is that you want to use.
  18. Hydraulic tube support. Part of it is broke off. Did have enough threads to reach past outside of tube with a clamp on both sides and the nut on inside and outside for clamps.
  19. Looked through my notebook and see where I found this information at one time. Start of B pump on F-400-D tractor serial number 17143 and engines 14280. HC 400-D, tractor 18074, engine 14449. I-400 tractor 1434, engine 14262. Hope this helps. IH did offer stuff to change from a A to B if wanted if it is a earlier tractor. Place I found a engine number of 21481 for B pumps is actually when they started putting open type injectors in a F-400-D. Real late in production with probably less than 10 built before the D-281 engines started.
  20. 1956 on some, up in the year. Thought I would check my answer since my memory could be off. Checked a f-400-D and have conflicting results.. Tractor serial number says May of 55. Engine serial number listed for the change was in September 56. Think the engine number listed is wrong.
  21. Agree when dead your dead. People that cared about you still do. Funeral is just a big get together for others. See no need to have one myself. Not having any, told wife to use the money that would be spent on funeral to enjoy if she outlives me.

    New to me TD 15

    Go to top of page and click forum. Then scroll down to IH construction equipment. Welcome to forum, great looking crawler.
  23. Can't be done easy because of the double gears on counter shaft and double second and third slider gear on main shaft with different teeth counts. Also part of the SM counter shaft is a larger diameter. Best way to change is put the SM counter shaft in the M with all gears, sliders and the reverse idler gear. Input shaft and housing would be optional, but late M and the SM used a bigger front input shaft bearing so wouldn't hurt to add it. IH made a optional fast 4th attachment for a M, but would be like looking for hens teeth now. Some aftermarket companies made a faster forth also. Needed t
  24. Have to laugh or cry about politics anymore. Some people say cov-19 will be over after the election, my son in law is one. Now the president is floating the idea of having the election later and letting the cov-19 go on longer.
  25. Looks to be a standard elevation fire crater piston for a 400 gas, or a look alike from another company.Will have a IH number on top if IH. Just posting a piston number from memory so I could be wrong, 374306R1.
