I'm getting to the home stretch on the H and started looking for the torque specs in my I&T manual and all it gives is a list of specs for different size bolts and grades, nothing specific to rod bolts, block to case, head, etc. I'm sure I'm not the only one that has run into this so any help or advise is appreciated!

Thanks for all the advise guys, I feel like an idiot after reading the suggestions to get Pat's book, I purchased one from him about 5 years ago. I was getting ready to head out on a little vacation and wasn't thinking quite clearly. Guess I was just looking forward to getting the tractor going more than going on vacation!!

I have been trying (for some time now) to put together a site dedicated to the H. I am still working on many parts of the site but I do have some information put together that I saved from Pat's JDH website. Pat's site is only available via web archive.
You can find some of the information you are looking for here: http://johndeereh.com/information I do recommend Pat's restoration guide, it has been priceless for the H's I have worked on. I have included the links to that guide on my site as well.

You might consider reviewing the information on Pat Browning's JDH Pubs - John Deere 'H' Restoration web site as suggested by Mike M.

Hope this helps.

Didn't know the site was still working since he passed away ?

Can you still buy copies of the book ?

I looked through several links on his site and found these two phone numbers:

Pat Browning, Deland FL 32724, (386) 624-7916 or (830) 627-0430

You might also contact his wife using information at this link.

Hope this helps.

I would assume the JD manual would have more info than the IT manual? 1-800-522-7448 for the manual. Some caution is advised when re-using old fasteners. If somebody in the past has torqued via by guess and by golly. The fasteners can be stretched and will never tension again as intended.

JD NEVER made a service manual for at least half of the old tractors they sold and the H is one of them.

Pat Browning (may he rest in peace)put one together with input from others and I remember him getting a lot of grief from a few on here about it for some unknown reason ?

Mike, you are correct about Deere never publishing a service manual for the model "H".

The only factory information about bolt torques for the model "H" that I have ever found is in Field Service Bulletin 147-S (May 1944) and that was only for head studs (1150 in-lb for the 9/16" diameter studs and 2150 in-lb for the 3/4" oil lead stud in the center).

The first three Instructions and Parts Manuals (owners manuals) for the "H" go into some detail by giving brief information and instructions about grinding valves, re-ringing pistons, etc., but the only information about fastener torque in those manuals is like this:

"When replacing cylinder head, use lead washers under nuts, turn nuts up uniformly and tight and adjust tappets in accordance...."
and
"When replacing the connecting rod bearing caps, it is important that the nuts be drawn up tight, and cotters in place and properly spread."

I guess they figured the farmers doing this work probably didn't have torque wrenches but would understand the meaning of "tight".

I'll read through it again when I get out there this weekend, all I did was look in the front index and it said go to back page, that's where the bolt specs were.

The rods and the cyl. head should be in there maybe listed right in the text of the removal and installation ?
