farmall h seat questions ?

Postby brian kov » Thu Apr 09, 2015 8:40 pm

does any one know if the seat spring beneath the seat pivot bar is supposed to be welded in place to the top or does it just sit in between the top and bottom . 2nd problem , some one bent the area up that the bottom of the shock absorber bolts to is it supposed to be a flat plate there or is there some bend to it ? mine is all wrenched down to about a 45 degree angle .

finally found a good close up picture . I see the bottom plate that the shock connects to is indeed flat , looks like I have some straightening to do .

There were two kinds of seats with springs. I believe this is the earlier version:

And the later variety (which I own):

I'm sure the later version did not have the coiled spring welded to the upper or lower parts of the seat assembly. Lower part (small coil) rides on a stud and upper part (large diameter coil) fits under the round pan with lip to hold it in place.

The second pic is from my seat. You can access my makeover here: viewtopic.php?f=176&t=81471&start=15

Hope this helps.

the seat that you restored is the type I was referring to . the hole where the shock mounts to the base is where I am questioning . is it flat at that point or a bit of an angle ?

You are correct that this is a very early one. This looks like a 1939 H. They had the trough where the seat mounts.

The most common one I know of is the piece of pipe bent in an upward sweep with a rounded front tool box. (One on ebay item #151638446193).

There's also another common version that has the shock mounted behind the seat. (ebay item #371296330714 and yes I know that's a John Deere but the same seat was used on Farmall H & M)

Brian, I'm pretty sure the lower end of the shock mount has to be angled. Otherwise the top of the shock wouldn't mate up with it's location.
