New member in Ohio

Postby chungjose » Sun Sep 11, 2022 7:57 pm

A few months ago I took possession of my late Grandpa's 1942 H. Mostly because no one else wanted it. And there are a lot of memories with that tractor. A distant relation, a retired mechanic, gave it a once over for me. I am generally handy, but not mechanically-inclined, but I am slowly learning. My wife and I recently attended an antique tractor show and fell in love with the B, so now we are looking for one of those.

Welcome to the forum. You didn't, by chance, attend SCRAP at White Star Park?

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

Welcome to the Forum, Mark! Congrats on acquiring your Grandpa's '42 H.

Take some time and read through a few threads to acquaint yourself with the Forum:

After you’ve logged your 2nd post on the Forum, you'll have access to the all the PDF Manuals on this site. There’s a few ways to do that:
  • From a desktop or laptop, go to "Quick Links" in the upper left corner of your screen. Hit that and a pull-down appears where you'll find "PDF Manuals".
  • You can also go to “Cub Info” in the upper toolbar, then hit “Rudi’s Manuals”. From there, you can access a variety of information.
  • If you're using a phone, go to the "Links Directory" (second category down the main page). Once in "Links Directory" , scroll down to the second section "Tractor Parts & Manuals" and you'll find them there.

You'll be able to download an Owner's Manual (very strongly recommended for maintenance and understanding your H) and any other manuals that interest you.

Might also enjoy reading through this thread (even though it’s for a Cub, much can be applied to any tractor just brought home): What to do with a Cub you just brought home

We’d encourage you to take the Safety Test located in the Safety Forum: Circle of Safety Test and Profile Badge

Take some pictures of your tractor and post them, we’d like to see them.

Remember:
  • Pictures are limited to 500 KB file size. Use an image reducer app or program to downsize pics.
  • When you have a specific question, start a new thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
  • Before posting, use the Preview button before hitting Submit--it'll show you exactly what your post will look like, including pictures.
  • When adding your comments to a thread, be sure to look at the date of the last poster. If it’s more than a 6 months old, the posters are probably not going to see it. Consider starting a new thread.

Glad you joined us.

We did! We've lived in the area for a few years, but never really had any interest till now.

It has been many years since I attended SCRAP and I'm confident that it has changed a lot.
