Farmall H

Postby Joey » Tue Jun 24, 2008 7:25 am

Anyone know the serial numbers and years for Farmall H? I just picked up an H with serial number 105426 and need to know the year. I'll try to post pics this evening. Thanks for any help.

I believe that to be a late model 1942.

Now I have my Dad's tractor back, and grin from ear to ear every time I get on it.

Thanks for the replies and the websites, I was under the impression it was a 1941.

John, that was an amazing transformation! I remember reading the posts about the restoration, but I didn't know it looked like that beforehand!

My H is all original (as I was told) and has all steel wheels, no rubber. I plan to restore it like it is for show purposes, as of now. Going to need a lot of help because it came with a crate full of parts, including the engine! The serial number on the engine block matches the tractor's serial number plate. This won't be a quick project, may take 3-4 years because I also have a Super AV to redo.

Here are the pictures as promised earlier of the 1942 Farmall H I was lucky to stumble onto. I plan to restore this tractor as it was originally and I hope you guys will be there to help guide me in the project. It is not planned in the immediate future, but sometime in the near future.

Any of you guys have a steel wheel tractor you bring to shows? How hard is it to get around? I thought about getting an extra set of wheels on rubber to switch them around, but that seems like a lot of work.

Joey - I picked up a set of real nice rear steel when I bought my H. A friend of mine found a very early 39 H slot-top tractor in a salvage yard and bought it to restore. I ended up selling him the wheels as he wanted to restore it with steel wheels. They look pretty good on it.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Joey,
Instead of switching out the entire wheels, just change the 'treads' so it will roll easier. You may have seen these before:
http://www.millertire.com/rubber_lugs.asp
I have also seen where people cut the tread portion off a regular farm tire and bolt it to the rear rims. With a little inginuity, one could make something that will work.
Hope this helps.

The rubber lugs look like a good option, but sure seems pricey. Probably would be cheaper that way than buying a set of wheels with tires. Gives me two options, though, parading on the street or showing the tractor on the fairgrounds.

I saw one guy offloading a John Deere on steel rims with metal lugs and he was moving very, very slowly off the trailer. The whole operation didn't look too safe and looked very uncomfortable. That's a long way down the road, though. Need to see if I can get this tractor functional without breaking the budget.

Almost forgot - wanted to ask what is the lever sticking out through the grill? Is there another part of the grill that covers the hole the lever sticks through?

Joey - the lever sticking through the grille is the steering arm for the cultivators. The IH engineers designed a system that compensated for steering around corners with front mounted cultivators. It helped keep the cultivators centered over the rows as you turned the corner. It saved plowing out a lot of corn when you had to plant rows with turns in them. There is an insert which covers that opening when the steering arm is removed.
