Keeping them in the family.

Postby Rodney51Cub » Wed Mar 25, 2015 6:59 am

Brought home my Dads 1940 Farmall H, Sunday. He passed away on the 17th. He had told me I had to take care of his tractors. He has a 40 and 44 H, and a 50 Case VAI. He bought both H's around 1993. Only one was running at the time. This H was repainted about 1997. My Dad used it to haul water for his garden and mow with a pull type bush hog. It has been converted to 12 Volt. It runs very well. I will replace the oil pressure gage ( 25 psi with engine off ) water temp gauge ( inoperative ) and change all fluids and tune up stuff. Will take it to some local shows and drive in the county fall parade. It will be a while before I bring the other two home. I have to figure out how to fit everything in the barn and still be able to work on stuff.

Sounds like you were close to your dad; am sad to hear of your loss. You have our sympathy. Lost my dad to cancer last December.

The H and the Case VAI look great. What a great resource of memories sitting there on four wheels... :coffee:

The squeaky wheel may get the grease but it's usually the first to be replaced!

Thanks everyone.

Brought home the Case today after an episode of crs. :oops:
Just because you see fuel in the tank does not mean there is enough to get to the carburetor. :oops:
The points and plugs got cleaned and reset though.
Changed the oil when I finally got it home. Will get the grease gun out this week.
Need to try and take some of the slop out of the steering. It is almost a quarter turn now.
Clean it up and haul to the first local show of the year, April 11th. :{_}:

Finally got the 43 H home around the middle of October. Originally thought it was a 44. Have the hood, just have to get the alternator to fit under it.
Had to replace the manifold, it was broke by #4 exhaust. Spent time cleaning both brakes and replacing gauges.
This one has a three point for a 5 foot bush hog and 6 foot grader blade.
