Picked up an H a few weeks back and just got the radiator in this weekend....needs a new mufler and the front pully seems to be loose but no other troubles I see. I will be looking for a nose piece in similar condition to the tractor so it matches, a PTO cover, and a belt pulley. Its a 1951 and appears mostly original, still on 6v and the light all work nice...I just love them in work clothes

Wish I'd know that you needed that panel. Was at the Red Power Round up Friday and there was a guy selling repro's of the panel.

Thanks for the thought....you know I priced the panel repops and it looks like 50 bucks plus is the cheapest :shock: I'd really like to get a weathered one to match the rest of the tractor if I could

Derick I just want to say that to me you got one of the best looking H's I have seen in a long time. Every now and then you see one that just sets a little different and you got it. From the hillside tread and fenders on the rear to the gas stain on the tank that one looks like it has been worked and parked back in the barn. Glad you got it.

Thank you Gordon, I wasnt in the market for another tractor but from the moment I saw it on side of the road for sale I was TRYING to ignore it but it wouldnt go away. I am absolutely in love with its originality, its what drew me to it from the start...after soem coaxing from Harold I went and paid the man. I want it to have this look for as long as I own it so I need to track down some used parts to match the rest of the tractor....I think it will be a fun experience to do so for the four of us for a long time :D

I agree with Gordon, that's as origional of a tractor as you can get. Kept under cover, and farmed all it's life.
A shame the p.o. took the belt pulley off though. She couldn't have retired to a better place. ;)

Thanks Dave, I have located a well used belt pulley for it but havent laid eyes on it yet so i'm hoping for the best. I wish I could get it original cults back but I heard they went to the scrap man years ago :( This tractor will get plenty of tender loving care in our shed ;) :)

You know Derrick that the morning the P.O. parked that tractor along the road near Harold's home I at first was thinking "whow", that seems like a nice strait tractor at first glance, then on the next time going by it I stopped & gave it the "once over", & thought a bit about contacting Pat's grand-nephew who is wanting to start "A Herd" of Farmalls.
And, if I would have had a trailer to haul it on, you just might not have it in your "stable" now.
You made a good choice on buying that "H", the P.O. said the hardest he knew it worked is to drag a deer out of the woods.
Oh, by the way on that missing nose piece, just have the girls cut out some cardboard in the shape of sharks teeth, color them & place them in "nose" mouth for now. Just might give it that "special" mean look. I'll keep an eye out for the items you are in need of, & ask around for cultivators which I seen go for $25.oo for a 4 row set some years back, but most likely none to be found now when you want them.

When you mentioned to me that Harrold & you had stopped to look at the "H", I put that thought of calling Pat's Gr-nephew about it our of my mind. Later when you mentioned, you had a feeling that "H" was going to follow you home, I pretty much assumed somehow you or Harrold would end up with it.
Did Harrold's son sell the MF he parked in the yard?

:lol: Sometimes I wish someone would be me to these things :lol: I have a feeling I will be in deep trouble with tractor collecting for many years to come ;) The MF is still there, I used it to go pick up the sprayer that came with the H and its a really nice running diesel. :)

Are you wanting the cultivators that were used on this tractor or just a set that fit it? Also do some checking. Dad had a 51 M and the cult was fixed rather than hooked to the steering. I don't know why there would have been any difference for an H since the same implements fit both. You would need to know the model number of the cult in 51. Or the piece may just have been removed for other reasons. Dosen't matter it is still gone. Dad had quit hooking the cult to the steering on his 39 H as far back as I can remember. I guess it really wasn't the hot set up. The last I saw of that H was 30 years ago and it still had the piece of cult hanging out the grill. Vern
