IH established a company in Britain in the early 1900's and imported tractors & implements from USA . Over the years they brought in the Titan & Mogul, then the Farmall F-12, F-14, F-20, and the standard tractors like the 10-20, 15/30, W-12 & W-14

During WW2 under the Lease Lend agreement they imported the Farmall A/H,M, the standard W-4,W-6, W-9 and the T6/T9 crawlers with a host of implements.
In 1949 they build their own factory in Yorkshire County in northern England. They built their own variations of US tractors & implements adapted for British farming conditions. The first tractors were based on the Farmall M and W-6 fitted with British built kerosene or diesel engines; models were BM and BW6 in kerosene and BMD & BWD6 denoting diesel engines.
Over the years these were updated with a crude lift & lower 3 point powered by an external hydraulic ram. The last of these were the Super BWD-6 and Super BMD. Here is a Super BWD-6 fitted with the cast iron rear & front wheels dating from around 1960.

The last models incorperated an inbuilt 3 point hitch without depth control and were re-named the B-450 Standard & Farmall B-450 rowcrop which had pressed steel front & rear wheel centres. In the 1960's these tractors were outdated and most of the production was exported; production ceased in 1966.
IH concentrated on building the small B-250/275/414 tractors which were the volume tractors used here. And their excellent range of tillage & grassland machinery

I owned a W-6 in the 1970's and found the clutch operation "difficult". I bolted a 4 inch block to the top of the transmission cover, and re-mounted the seat stem/bracket to that.

This raised the seat and the driving position, so my left leg was pushing the clutch pedal [more] downwards rather than forwards. It did make driving much more comfortable.

THE most awkward tractor I have ever driven was a B-450D. Whoever put that horror together must have had two extra joints in his clutch leg. And impossible to start here in Canada.
