Farmall 240 Fix Up


Recommended Posts

Ordered new gauges from precision tractor to replace the ugly universal gauges currently in the 240. It already has a original fuel gauge so I only had to buy temp oil and amp gauges. 
 

Also went on a road trip to buy a fast hitch 3pt adapter and two bottom plow. Really only needed the 3pt adapter but the plow was way to cheap of a deal not to buy it.

Last Saturday I got a fast hitch adapter just like that. Had one years ago and got rid of it when I sold a 300U . Hopefully it will work for our seed slinger for food plots. Tractor looks great

Hi, I have an IH 240U, The steering does not work. I can see that the shaft going into the box is turning and the wheels will turn when lifted off the ground.   

In the I&T shop manual I have for it. The manual  mentions that a new hardened Woodruff key must be installed on prior chassis serial # 4766.

I assume it is the key from the worm gear to the steering arm.  Since you have had your tractor apart and know more than I, How much disassembly would I have to do to replace the key . It seems like there is very little room below the nut and the steering arm.   I hope that is the only issue.   Thank you, Carl H.

What has helped us in our restoration project is getting a parts manual. Jensales has all the manuals you need. If you prefer online there is the caseih website (which isn't customer friendly) or Messick.com go to online parts and click on Case and type your model. Once you have the part number Google it. You can shop around for best prices.

   Hi, I have manuals and have see the pictures of the parts. I can see the universal spinning the shaft at the steering box. I am believe something is broken in the steering box or the key to the steering arm is sheared.

I was hoping to get some input from someone with experience with reworking the steering box or an easy way to replace the key on the worm gear shaft to the steering arm.. My 240U has "wide" front adjustable axle.

I believe it is #6. You may want to take a look at the worm gear also since you will have it all apart. Screenshot_20210912-153921_Chrome.thumb.jpg.0505e5b7668454a8de4218f8d0917ded.jpg

I don't think we got too far into our steering bolster.  IMG_5686.thumb.JPG.3db3b0f5f56640584801fec762c535c4.JPG

You should be able to remove the shaft and worm by removing the screw in plug on the front of the bolster and screwing the shaft out towards the front.  You will have to remove the universal joint on the input side of the steering box.

Hope this helps.

No updates really but here are some new pictures of the 240 from December 2021-April 2022!

The three point fast hitch adapter is the greatest thing ever. Very easy to hook up implements and works quite well.

That's a nice looking little 240, you did an excellent job on it. I really like the small front weights, they're scaled perfectly. I have the bigger brother to it, a 340 utility. It's handy as heck (except for a blown headgasket at the moment), but now I want to try and find a three point adapter like that. Currently I'm using the individual prong adapters, and they're ok but not near so handy as that set up.
