Chapter 11 plow day.  First time the H has been in the field working since 1965.

Glad you got it fixed. When are you going to paint the H red? 

Thanks for asking, I'm hoping to get it done yet this summer. I have to go back and fix some of my other screw ups but most of that is just leaks and drips that need further attention.  If I had the foresight, the flat sealing surfaces of the block would have had a few tenth taken off in the mill to get things to seal.  It just boils down to lack of experience with this type of restoration.  It's nothing serious but need to be finished before paint.

Taking 10 days of vacation.  Praying for good weather and a load of work gets done on this machine.  Going to try and make the final push to get this wrapped up this week.  I will try and snap a few photos and video

Battling leaks.  Water jacket, governor shaft seal and so on.  I know that I should have done all of these in the rebuild but it's really tough tossing something to old but i digress.

Nice, it's always been an enjoyment to teach someone a new skill. My mother in law learned to drive my C. Had to about pry her off of it. My wife was chomping at the bit to drive and her mom was not willing to get off.

Wow, been awhile since I posted an update.  My last 'time off' didn't yield all the work I wanted to get done and my window of time is slowly closing rather I want to admit it or not.  Wife has given me the green light to really take the gloves off and get this project closed out and finished.  Got a new shop space that has been offered to me so the H may take another trip to a new facility, for a hopefully short duration.  The tractor still has an axle leak between the axle houses and the rear end case.  Even after new seals for the pedal shaft and the last remaining original bull pinion seal.  If the axles have to be pulled it seems wise to go through them for bearings, seals and just be done.  Got to get color on this soon.

Not exacty my H but very closely connected job that had to get done.  Tail wheel was getting really bad on the plow and needed a new tire.  Just can't mount a new tube and tire on a rusty torn up rim so spent a day wire wheeling and cleaning and another day getting some color down.

OK, trying to get it back in gear with some updates.  Here i'm getting back to correcting some of my mistakes in the rear end.  I knew I should have pulled those axles and put new seals between the rear end housing and the axle housings.  They drip just enough to be annoying.  😆😆😆  Also, here is my original amp meter vs. the repop.  Wow!!!   Couldn't resist playing around with an original hood emblem.

Just some more picture of me cleaning up some things that should have been done in the beginning.  Oh well.  It's getting done now and it really wasn't that hard to do.  A few buddies of mine helped me pull the top cover off and used a fork lift to take the wheel castings on and off.  My friend that is letting me use his place (and fork lift) are John Deere fellas but they are sure impressed with how quickly I can pull the tractor apart and put back together again(thank you IH engineering!).  I'm really blessed to have the support of all of my friends and family to make this happen!

A little story on this group of photos.  You may notice that the drive coupling going into the transmission does not have the proper dot headed bolt.  I thought that was odd but I know that my dad had it apart in the early to mid 1960's so I thought nothing of it.  When I got done replacing the seals and the gaskets I turned my attention to the mice nest that had been built on the top of the hydro pump and started cleaning.  This is the point were I found the original dot bolt for the coupling trapped just behind the output lines, just sitting there.  Hmmm.  Threads were a little worn from riding there but nothing that the thread file couldn't fix.  Installed the original bolt with no problems and moved on.   Win for the day!
