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...."
"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".
