    Oil pressure was low on the Farmall C so ,decided to do what I could before I go to the Ohio state plowing match on august 2. 
    Took the pan off and then the pump. 
    When I went to take the cast aluminum plate off the pump. One bolt was sort loose. Ugh ! Took the 5/16 18 3/4 out the split lock washer was busted. Ugh! 
    Looks liked it blew out the gasket on that side . Well grade 8 washers going back in. 
    I tried to keep the photos as it came out for edification and your amusement .
    photos are to be enjoyed.

    Oh my ! .008 shim will go under the veiner beam . Unacceptable  to seal oil with that thin gasket at that pressure. This original surface finished is terrible , no wonder it won’t put out any pressure. .

    I recommend that you buy the C-244 owner manual for the corn and cotton cultivation. That will have all the necessary components you want .its what I have .

    theres also a c- 254 manual - that I got because I didn’t know what I had on the C s 

    there’s a rear attachment also I see you don’t have or maybe don’t need . My sweeps are much larger than your .

    good luck 

    I would make the crop shield s  

    check auctions and market places for the very rare attachment

    This has been a tractor I’ve been trying to get my hands on since I was 11 years old. This was my great granddads tractor he bought new in ‘48. He rolled it three times plowing peoples gardens up in the mountains of VA where he lived. He put all new sheet metal the last time he rolled it. It has been sitting since ‘96. It turns over but I haven’t tried to start it yet. It will be completely restore in his honor. He used to have a set of two way plows, a mid mount mower, a saw, and a drag disc harrow but someone stole all that!!😡The sickle mower is the only thing left with the tractor

  6. I get the feeling listening to presentations about ihc that upper management didn’t really know what was going on in R And D .

    Like A IHC  Skunkwork s . marketing wasn’t in touch with the future needs of the customers to fund the r and D .

    Farmall is example upper management was putting down ,and  the sales were phenomenal . Total out of touch with the market .

    Can't help with the seat bushings, but do like your seat cover! Used to use an old sack like that when disking with the old horse drawn disk I had. Made it far more tolerable than the steel seat alone. Also, is that one of the trip lift mowers? I've never used one or even seen one in person but always found them interesting.

    The new seat from K&m is doesn’t breathe well , and it’s slippery. My mistake , need canvas seat if you going to be on for hours at  a time. 
    I’ll suffer a few days ,then be back at it to finish the 12 acres

  8. Mowing the back field today with Claria the C . Got a lot down , 7 acres (estimated) from 11 two 2:30 pm. I’m exhausted . 
    The new front seat hinge bushing wore out , cheap eBay part. I paid for the bushing and paid for the kink in my back side from having to side shift the seat to stay level in the turns . Of course that didn’t go well. 
    I will look at messicks to see if they have a seat bushing. 
    Any body else have the bushing failure.?

  9. Ran over a snapping turtle with the 50 T baler . ( if you know how heavy they were) , least that’s what I assumed made it squeeze out his behind. Last I saw he was still moving around. Don’t have any more details.
