I'm the first to admit I'm not a Case guy. This my first one. I picked up an adjusable wfe and I'm putting it on a VAC I've had. Its the "I"beam style, not the tube style and I'm sure its for my serial no. But looking at the parts breakdown page my friendly CasIH dealer printed off its referred to as a VAH front end. Is there a difference in the High crop front and a regular front. I know on the small IH's they just use bigger front wheels. It was in peices and I'm missing a few small ones but am in the process of restoration.

I believe that the difference is in the drop forgings and the spindles. The center beam is the same. If your tractor has the "chicken roost" steering arm then you have the right tractor for the front end. All of the tube type front ends use a Universal steering box mounted in the front bolster casing and not under the cowl like the earlier ones.

Jerry- I believe that the 'chicken roost' steering was only used until 1946 when the drag link was lowered. This was used up to 1951 when the steering was changed to the front-mounted, enclosed worm and gear type steering and tube front axle on the VAC-13 and, later (1953) on the VAC-14. :-)

So the left and right drop forgings would be longer on a VAH than on a regular adj. Wide front? I bought an original parts book off of ebay but it doesn't contain the wfe (duh). Like I said, I bought the wfe in a pile on a pallet and started putting it together. Looking at the parts picture got me wondering if I have a VAH front and its going to be too tall. Thanks for your help.

Hold on a minute and I'll go out and measure one.

The distance from the bottom of the spindle to the top of the retaining nut is 15 1/4 inches on the VAC. I don't have a VAH here now but I believe their spindles are between 4 and 5 inches more. If you click on the link and look at image #5 you can see that the bottom of the axle beam on the VAC is about even with the 15" front rim while pic #4 (shown) shows that the bottom of the VAH beam is just above the top of the tire. While you are there go to "Parts" album (http://imageevent.com/skipjack/vamanuals/parts) and look at the VAC and VAH adj. WF axle pages. NOTE: The first image is the INDEX and the PAGE numbers are the same as the IMAGE numbers. Click on an image to enlarge.
