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.
