Working on the mechanical assessment of our current O4 project. We knew this was a well used tractor as evident by many external visual factors and knowing the family it came from originally. The transmission will need all of the bearings and seals replaced. For the sake of expediency does anyone have a full list of the bearing and seal sizes for an H or W4? Not worried about part numbers just looking for sizes so I can start looking for the best/most economical options. I can start cross referencing part numbers and measure the old ones when they come out but I figured someone on here has already done this task and it never hurts to ask.
I love Letter Series ! esp W series. I did a rough tally on the total production numbers of the Letter Series ( including Supers ) and its around 1,050,000 units made without the Cub . Yet there is a few who just won't let up on them . ....whatever. What other series of tractor made by any company sold that many tractors. AND they were not cheap throwaways like some clunkers. I have been inside enough tractors to appreciate the quality and durability of these machines. So I thought we could tell or show with pics what little job your Letter Series still does for you. If you hate them please start your own thread on why you don't care for them I believe the Letter Series is what started the love we have for the red tractors. IH had such a presence in the rural culture in so many ways in that era I am just a hobby farmer /collector with a Farmall 656D and 434d as my modern tractors I try to use a Letter Series if I have a job they can do. My favorite plow is a 8C - 2 ace bottom plow with a W4, sure makes for a smooth field if I have time. Lets see what you have!
