heard from a longtime friend about a couple of tractors a widow wanted to sell off.... 10 miles away....right away perked my antennae.... an 'early' H and a Case VAC.
had to go look at them.....a mistake, of course
..hadn't run in probably 7 or 8 years.....price was very right
...motor loose...oil looked ok...
don't need an H for anything but......
put a couple gallons of gas in it...hooked up a battery...no fire....opened the mag up...someone had been messing around in there recently.. grabbed the mag off my A, tossed it on.... one revolution and it was running!!
loaded it up!
Question: it has a small carb on it, but its a '49 by the castings. serial tag long since corroded away. i thought the small carbs were only prewar tractors?
