Farmall H Original Steering Shaft Joint

Can't say that I have. I have seen the joint before. Some other application. Doesn't appear that the pins fit the holes. I can think of three possibilities. Ream the blocks and weld in oversize pins. Build up and remachine or replace with the more common ujoint.

Just out of curiosity. Is this the 1940 H your handle indicates or is this a wartime tractor?

My 1941 has the same joint.

I have never taken it apart but did remove some washers to tighten it.

Mine has a grease zerk in one of the pins.

LOL.  No it's not.  My handle is my mothers 1940 H at there farm.  Had to memorize it to gets parts one day and thought it would make a cool handle, 20 plus years ago.  The H in the picture is a 1943

Mine is slopped out enough that I need to do something but just trying to decide what I want to do with it.  I was curious what was on the inside but wanted to keep as much of it original as I can.  Not really worth the extra work but not awful either.  This one has the grease zerk in one end as well but I couldnt find the picture of it.

I have one like that also on early M. My plan for rebuilding was to remove the pins from the yokes and make new stepped ones, with the oversized ends on the insides of the yokes, then bore the bearing cross to fit the oversized pins. But add shims to the cross before boring, so you have some means of tightening it up in the future.
