Should not be leaning. Possibly a bent part but more likely wear in the pivot pins and pin holes. Probably the product of a few decades of watching the right row while doing row crop work. Fixing it will probably require welding up and redrilling the worn holes or replacing the most-worn parts.

I notice the left drawbar bracket is leaning a bit too. That may just have been clamped on with some mis-alignment but the main U of the drawbar may be bent.

You thinking a much bigger garden than when you first mentioned a Cub?

Jim,

I have 50 acres. The fellow is willing to give me a good price on this ole Farmall H. He also has a 2 bottom plow for it. I'm just trying to find something reasonable to do a little work with then build up to better equipment down the road. I am working every hour of overtime that I can to save up enough to get a start.

The pivot at the bottom of the seat support has rubber bushings that are invariable worn out. replacing them will help, but as Jim said, the holes and pivot pin are probably worn too.

That style does not have rubber bushings. That is the factory pipe seat for the H's and M's the later monroe seat would have rubber bushing and shock. That seat has a spring that is the shock absorber. I rebuilt the one on my H a pipe seat like you have and what i did was weld in new bosses into the the seat and got a new bolt. It requires alittle welding and cuting of the pipe for the bosses but it not hard.

Andrew, you are correct, I forgot about the pipe seat not having the rubber bushings, only the rear spring one.

Jim mentioned the drawbar - the left bracket seems to be leaning and the right one appears to be bent. In either case, the drawbar is decidedly out of line. But it should be an easy fix.

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

To soften the ride, back off the nut on top of the big spring.

If you are planning on spending a LOT of time on the ol' H, you might want to consider replacing that seat with the newer Monroe style. The differance is like night and day.
