Here's my 1948 H. Grandpa bought it brand new and it never left the farm. Sat unused in a shed for a number of years before he did a crude restoration on it. He had a Woods belly mower on it then in 2014 it cracked the head. Grandpa wanted it fixed when I had spare time. Unfortunately he got sick and died before I got to it. For some wierd reason that i to this day don't understand my Grandpa left the H to me. Me and him weren't close at all even though we worked together all the time when he was still helping on the farm. It then sat in the barn at my house from summer of 2014 til summer of 2017. I got hurt that spring and with my spare time began to get the urge to get it going again or knock it in the head.

After i could work again I went out and started working on it again and had it going again by mid summer. Took the mower off and used it to pull one of our rakes, pull tedder and in the winter haul firewood at my house. Then we got the short load out auger for the bin this last year so instead of having to grab the 786 when we're running corn up the wet bin, i use the H to run it.

I have a 43 H on steel cut offs just like that.  Both front and rear rims are welded to the spokes.  Neighbor had it 50 years and bought it like that.  I dont have any pics at the moment.  Maybe tomorrow if it is still light when i get home.

Mine is just a project yet. '39 engine and mid section but newer rear end. I have a few parts for installation and then it will hopefully run better. Was idling too high. Found a loose bearing in the governor, hoping that solves that issue, then I will rewire it up with an 8 volt battery and get the generator to work. When I got it the carburator looked newly rebuilt by the carburator paint job. The rest of the tractor has barn paint? brushed on or dipped. Some is sagging and 1/4" thick and gummy yet

Grandpa's 1946 Farmall H still working last spring.  My Uncle restored it in college.   Complete overhaul.  Added the 350 seat suspension and 560 fenders then.

I like those fenders much more than the original ones

Not mine but the tractor club that ibam a member and an officer of. We did this farmall H for our raffle last year and the winner took the cash option so we may raffle it again this year. We are also working on a farmall a, we wanted to do that one this year and give the h a break but it is taking longer to fix up and probably make it in time. This one is a 39 model.

my January 1940 H. I hauled it for my friend Steve when he bought it many years ago. after Steve died from cancer while taking it apart to get it running again, I bought it and put it back together for plow day in 2018. the H has many 1939 features, like the seat and starter rod, and has shutters still on it. Steve had gotten a replacement hood and gas tank from out west, maybe Montana.

Our is a '45. Grandpa bought new, could get the lights, starter and electrical system because of war time, IH dealer came out to install the electrical around 1 year later. Sat unused in the shed for probably 15-20 years, unsure why. My siblings and I restored it to parade quality around '07. Now its parade and bridge duty mostly, my dad crossing the Mackinaw Bridge this past September.
