1947 Farmall H Restoration - 265658X1

Postby PVF1799 » Thu May 28, 2015 6:26 pm

I'm starting the slow process of restoring our 1947 Farmall H #265658X1. Because I have to use this tractor all summer it will be a slow process. Anyhow - I wanted to get the post started.

The tractor is solid - except for needing an engine overhaul, brakes and steering tightened up. I've owned the H since the early 1970's - We've never really done anything to it. It's a work horse that will pull my JD 5320 Diesel at 65HP, backwards uphill. I'll get photos of it soon. The air filter unit has been busted for 30 years - with the tube rusted off. Dad clamped a piece of galvanized around it and put a tin can over it. I purchased this replacement filter on ebay for $25, knowing it had an issue with the crankcase breather tube.

For you folks who have a lot of experience you'll like this bit of the repair. I was going to braze the fitting back in - torch in hand, part clamped in place. Hit it with the torch and GUESS WHAT - the whole darn thing is soldered together. Gladly I STOPPED the heat before I did real damage....which I know could have been fixed but just the same :oops:

Well here is the 1st painted part.

Repaired breather tube. Not totally happy with the JB Weld Job - but I know it will hold.

I'm not sure why it looks Orange - But I can assure you it is Case IH 2150 Iron Guard Red.

If it turns out as well as your last Cub project it will look great. Good luck and I look forward to your future posts.

Air Filter - Finished and Ready to Install :D

I figure I'll restore the original and place it for sale on eBay.

Am I reading that right? :? :? As "detailed oriented" (and I sincerely mean that as a compliment) as you are in your restorations shouldn't that be
"I figure I'll restore the original and place it back on the H and put the temp one for sale on eBay"?

:thanx: For the compliment on my work on Rex'48 - that tractor has historical and sentimental memories from the farm. The H has been there for a while but was not purchased by Dad as our 1st tractor since the 1929 Regular came to the farm. Now with that being said - when I see how bad the original one is - I may change my mind. :D

Project CANCELLED.

After spending money and time on the air-filter, battery box and other parts - Dad informed me he's given the H to my brother - Aggrieved! :oops: Thats all I can say - w/o getting banned from the forum.
