Hand Crank Exploded View

9995 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  DC Snider

I have a 1947 Farmall M. I have been looking through the following Case IH website: ... ::mr02-249
I can’t find a section on the exploded view / parts list for the “Hand Crank” assembly showing the parts from hand crank to crank shaft. Mine is seized up and I will most likely have to rebuild or replace the front section on my tractor.
Any help would be appreciated.

IH wont have them. Youll either have to break out the hot wrench, or find a repalcement bolster with a working hand crank. Now what I have done in the past, of course it was during restoration so time asnt a big deal, I took out the grease fitting on the bottom, cleaned out any old goop I could, and kept the rust buster on it, I use PB Blaster or Kroil, until I could see it seeping out. Then once I remounted the bolster, I hung my hand crank on it, with a cement block on the handle for downforce and reinstalled the grease fitting, shot some in there and left it for a few day. It finally came loose, and I just kept working it and shooting the grease inthere. I did heat it the area around the spinning section a time or two.
If you want to see what the parts look like or dimensions of the parts etc, I have my H apart currently. I rebuilt the rod that goes through the pedestal and can tell you whatever you need. Just let me know
Mine was seized as well. Patience, PB Blaster, MAPP Torch, and a rubber mallet got it free in several "sessions" over ac ouple weeks time.
