Well many moons ago when it got really cold IF we needed a tractor this is how it was done. Go over to the neighbors and get him , he would go down to the barn and CRANK start his Farmall H then he would come over and he would drag the Farmall M up the drive to the top and get it turned around . Then he would get it moving down the hill as fast as he could speed shift his H up into Road gear and then and only then would we pop the clutch on the M in Forth . It would always start that way. Then we would drag out one of the 450 D 's with the M and drag it to the top of the hill and start all over . Back then we did not have a bunch of money for really good batterys and we got what we could afford . In warm weather everything started fine BUT when the temp stick got close to the big O the H was the only thing that would start on the ARMSTRONG starter.
