New tractor question

Postby pokitisme » Tue Apr 14, 2020 2:32 am

So I bought a Farmall h for 650 bucks. But it's interesting to me because the guy put the rear tires from a Farmall M on it and he says it has a Farmall 300 engine from what he has been told. I am curious how I would determine what is what. From what I know it is a 1939 Farmall h. So how do I differentiate the engine model and year and the tractor model and year and if there is any kind of determining if the wheels are actually off of a Farmall m. Besides that the other cool features that has is the control box has been completely cut off from everything else it's a 12-volt system and it is a key ignition. I think the damn thing is pretty cool.

Also what should the tire pressure be for the front and rear tires. Rear tires have a lot of cracks in them. But they're standing up pretty good. Front tires are a little bit low.
Favorite quotes by me. If you want to you can but if you don't you wont... most possibly yes but maybe no.... and as always buy guns keep America free

I'd encourage you to check out the PDF manuals section. It contains the H / HV Owner's Manual, which will give you an idea on tire inflation rates (pages 61-69 for wheels/spacing, page 70 for inflation). Also check out the Farmall M section containing the "Farmall M Engine" and the "Farmall M SM manuals." The former contains spec info on many different models, including the 300 engine. The latter is the basic Owner's Manual, containing spec info on the M and Super M.

Let us know if you have any questions.
