My new Super A seat

Mon Mar 12, 2012 7:24 pm

As mentioned previously, I have added a deluxe seat to my Super A. The frame was originally on my grandfather's Super A, he installed it in 1961. I wanted it to be original so I went back with a pan seat but I kept the deluxe seat frame. It is definately much more "cushier" than the ol' pan seat....

Yeah the seat is the best looking part of it right now.....I want it to be painted but there are several projects ahead of it...

I went back through some old papers I found here. I have some old sales tickets for stuff my father and grandfather bought from the IH dealer, the oldest is around 1961 and it goes on up through 1974, the year I was born. It looks like my grandfather's Super A was last overhauled in 1961. On 3-13-61 he bought sleeves and pistons(Firecraters) for $50.63, a set of decals for $1.53, A gallon of paint for $8.88, a gallon of thinner for $3.50, two new sealed beam headlights at $5.92 each, and my deluxe seat for $41.33. Then on 3-14-61 my grandfather bought a reground crankshaft for $27.50, along with some other stuff. I guess he was getting it ready for spring work. My great-uncle had a small shop where he painted cars and tractors and did the Super A and several more tractors. It is funny that the seat cost almost as much as sleeves and pistons--but wouldn't we like to get some of this stuff today at those prices!

No it was overhauled in 2000 and finished in '05. Old pistons and sleeves were worn out. Dude didn't do a good job on the rear end and the left rear wheel started wobbling in the housing again. I want to get that fixed before I pull it hard much.
