Super C H Help Needed (LONG)

Hello to all! New reader here, and a recent convert/victim
to the restoration/collecting game! :-) I recently came into possession of an "H" and
a "Super C" after my grandfather died. I don't
have a clue as to what I'm really looking at to
begin with. Both were used fairly regularly,
though dwindling off rapidly in the past 10-15
years as he became less able to get around and
for the past few years haven't done anything more
than sit in the shed and gather dust. I have no idea how old they really area, so
for starters, where do I look to find the SN#'s?
Once I find these, I know that I can figure out
their age. Is there a reference that I can get hold of
that might be able to tell me if they are worth
restoring? I know that both ran when he last used
them, so I know there wasn't anything obvious
wrong with them. Not being around all the time, I
cannot vouch for what kind or how often
maintenance was done. Oil, lube, etc. I know that
the one has an electric short somewhere in the
alternator/generator, as it won't keep a charge if
left sit for a while. As long as you run it
regualarly, it keeps a charge fine, so I know it's
charging, but give it several days, and you'll
have to put it on the charger. I think the tires are original on both, so I'm
cringing at the thought of how much that'll cost.
I don't know if I want to go to full restoration,
or what, but after finding this list, I'm
intrigued! :-)

Hope to hear from someone soon!

Jerry

Hey Jerry, My Dad and I just recently got my Grandfather's 1953 Farmall Super C when he passed away. It sounds like yours were in the same shape ours was. It was fairly easy and inexpensive to repaint and do some general maintainence. It is very meaningful to me to have my Grandpa's tractors. I don't think that I would be near as interested in any others. I think that you will enjoy them for that reason. I can't wait to go and get one of the C's that are still there. -- Martin

Thanks to all the readers who gave me the info
on where to find the SN#s off of the two tractors.
They are both kept inside, in a nice, dry machine
shed, so keeping them out of the weather isn't a
problem.
Now I just need to get the manuals so I can change
out the oil, etc, and go from there.

Thanks again!

Jerry

If you love tractors, keep em and restore em. Restoration can get expensive, but it the tractors were well cared for it should not be too bad. You are ahead of the game though because you are getting the tractors for free. I've had to buy mine. I would love to have had the ones from my family, but they were sold years ago and no chance of finding them. Rear tires for both these tractors are going to cost about $250 per tire and add the cost of new tubes to that for about $30 each.

Money is an issue,but since they were your grandfathers,keep them.As long as you go out and srart them occasionally and keep them in the dry,you can work on the restoration little at a time.First thing is go change those fluids,to be on the safe side.then get them to running condition,fix the short,and drive them around occasionally.Consider this,leave them they way they are,with exception to the tire.Nice to see an old tractor in their working clothes every now and then.Oh and watch out!Farmallitis is very contageuos!!!

Look on the large housing just behind the air cleaner on the left side for the ID tag on the H. The serial number listed there should should help you get the correct year from the lists in the left columns of this site. Good luck with both tractors and be careful. We want to keep you around.

Hi Jerry: sitting on the seat just below on your right there should be a aluminum tag, and on it there should be a number. The number is it's identification, from that you can tell what year your tractor is. Hope this helps. Have fun. Bob

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
