Grease gun bracket


Recommended Posts

I just got a parts '49 M with what I think is a spring loaded grease gun bracket. Is that what this is and does anyone know who made them? Also has fender extensions I have not seen before.

Also had a possibly homemade bracket for holding the clutch down , live pump and vertical distributor, clutch extension , friction throttle ,  charlyn PS, and one of the nicest late style factory wide fronts I have seen unrestored.

Bitty. That clutch hold down is a factory item I’m pretty sure.    Bought a few rear ends once and there was one on.    Was told they were for starting in winter so you didn’t have to turn over cold oil in trans.

     Interesting   M,  I noticed in the fourth & fifth  picture the Key stock in the rear wheel,  wedging it into the axel,   looks to be an adjustment bolt,   I haven't seen before.

   Was a Farmer near us when I was a young kid with a 300, was complaining to my Dad what a tough time he had replacing and setting the ignition points, on the 300, The oil filter housing and the Hydraulic pump steel lines were close to the distributer cap,

   He  purchased a Distributer just like you have pictured,   He remarked one day to my Dad,    Look at that Distributer!!!  You can stand up like a "Man"  and change the points & condenser,  Just like a Man stands & Pee's,..... Not get in a sitting position, like a woman to Pee, and change the points in that old style of "Distributer"...... as a kid,  I never forgot that visual image of a man squatting to pee when changing points on an old "M" distributor.

Thanks for the memories!!!

It had 400 or 450 centers with double bevel wheels so they were replaced at some point. Only the left side has that locking key stock . 

That makes sense about the clutch and starting up. 

The stay ball was the only thing I noticed that's rewelded . I am pretty sure that the clutch assist is not M&W as well as the throttle might be someone else also

Nice find sir, hope to see pictures of the tractor during the restoration process.

I got it with a seized incomplete engine. It's parts. Wheel centers I need for my one 450

Looks like plain old steel tubing cut down to me. Be a good idea to keep the vibration out of them. That clutch hold down would make me nervous if I was standing in front trying to crank start it.

Still confirm that it's in neutral

Our first loader tractor was a 1941 H under an F10 Farmhand.

We parked it out of the wind on the East side of the barn.

Had a tank heater on it to insure it started.

We only cranked it as the starter and generator did not work well.

It started easy if you blocked the clutch forward when it was about 30 below.

Then let it run for a couple minutes to warm up a bit.

Then let the clutch out slowly.

The 90 weight in the transmission and the 30 weight in the loader was very stiff.

It would almost kill the H as it pulled that hard.

It took a few minutes of running so the loader would go up and down.

No such thing as a cab then but we did have an IH Comfort Cover later on.

We then pitched the silage out of the silo and it fell into the Farmhand bucket.

That warmed you up a bit.

Ah, the old days!

PS: That same H was at RPRU2020 this year and still in it's work clothes.

The 6 volt system has been restored but I still crank it for old times sake.
