Well, after I single handedly tore down the entire tractor (to the last bolt), replacing pistons, sleeves, tearing down the trans, doing my own paint and reassembling the entire tractor I must just be an idiot (in spite of my two Master's degree's). I guess I don't deserve to drive it for asking a question.

Hey there Jim,

Gosh, I didn"t mean to offend. And I would never have used words like "idiot" or anything similar to describe you. With all the talents and education you have and what you single-handedly did to that tractor proves you know more about that stuff than I do. I mostly know how to write out checks to get things fixed.

Back in the 1960s my dad put a friction throttle on his H. When I found that tractor back about 10 yrs ago I took off that throttle and put on the factory type. Now when I open it up on the road the throttle often jumps to a slower setting and I think "Yep, it is just like old times"! And at 76 yrs old, it just gives me a chuckle.

It"s raining here in Wisconsin for the 2nd day without letup, I"m idling away in my office, and the devil made me comment in a way I should not have. On the other hand, with all the little problems you will encounter owning an old tractor, you just have to have the ability to laugh at things sometimes.

"idling away in my office"....maybe I too need a new throttle!

At least, that is what I heard someone say. You can add what you want.

Sorry to you, Jim. Would rather be friends.
