In addition to my cub, I have just begun re-restoring a 1941 John Deere "H" that my grandfather gave me. It was redone about 10 years ago, driven in one parade, then parked in the barn. Hasn't been started since. It, like the cub, is drawing lots of attention from my co-workers. I need blinders so I can keep my mind on work, and not my tractors!

We saw mostly A's & B's around here. Hardly ever saw an H. They are neat tractors.

Good to see another two brand owner here. :D Besides the 1951 Cub I purchased this past summer, I have a 1938 Massey Harris 101. Dad owned it from 1960 until he died in 1994. I moved it from Ohio to Kansas about three years ago. It is pretty rough, but runs well enough to pull a plow on plow days. It is on my "Projects To Do" list.

I have my eye on a 1948 JD A located about two miles from my house. It sadly :( sits in a pasture my brother-in-law rents from an elderly lady. She lives out of town so, he is going to ask her if she will sell it to me the next time he talks with her. I already have a lead on a parts tractor I will need should I aquire it. 8)

I am hoping to put some pics of the "H" on here within the next week or so. I had to order a carb kit, and fine tune the timing, so it should be purring like a spittin, sputterin, poppin kitten in a few days!

Cub Bud,

If you get that A, as well as the parts one, If you ever want to sell any parts off it, I'm looking for the flywheel and big nut that holds the flywheel in place. I have an A that is in very good condition except the splines in the flywheel are worn off due to the big nut not being tight and fell off. Mine is a 1950, so I think the flywheel should be the same.

Hey bigdog, Do you know where I could find a JD B?

As a matter of fact, I do. Unless the guy has sold it. Includes new tires all the way around. Original condition working tractor. Been setting in a barn for the last 4-5 years. I can check. I think I even have some pictures of it somewhere.
