I discovered my 1950 H had a 1951 transmission case. I bought it from an old IHC mechanic, and my belief is he put it together from two tractors. You can check by finding the casting codes. The 1944 code will look something like ##-##-N, where the N represents 1944. If the transmission case code looks like ##-##-U or maybe ##-##-W, it would be 1951. T would represent 1950.

Checked the casting code on the right side of the chassis and the number ends with the suffix ďN.Ē So Iím pretty confident the tractor is a 1944.

David, The information I have read says that the last 300 or so H's had disc brakes installed from the factory. If yours is a 1944, I would have to presume that they are aftermarket.

Haven't seen you post for a long time, welcome back!

Dave, great to talk to you again. Iím still here, just been busy lately. Now have 8 tractors: SM, M, 4 Hís, SC, and an Allis WD-45. Only the Allis has been fully restored. The brake cover on Grandpaís H has a part number cast into it. That fact, plus the inclusion of the parts in an H parts manual tells me itís IH, not aftermarket. What do you think? Are you on Facebook? If so, we should be friends. Let me know your thoughts. David

David, sorry I don't have a Facebook account.

As for your H, over the past 75 years any number of things might have been done. Aftermarket parts, parts from a later model H may have been installed, or maybe IH sold them as a kit for retrofitting.

Did you know that the Cinderblock moved? There is a link to it on the old site. I check in there and the Cowboard from time to time.
