Went to an auction today, a gentleman who was into Farmalls passed and his collection was being auctioned off. There were lots of tractor parts and not many tractor people. I got a crate of magneto's and distributor caps for 10.00 bucks. Two crates of starters for 7.50 each (about 10 starters). He had a trailer loaded with bigger parts that I got that had three engine blocks (H's I think), 1 M and two H transmission castings. Loads of miscellaneous parts like air filters, radiators, and one huge buzz saw. There were three H's and an A at the auction. Two restored H's that netted 1250 and 1100. And an unrestored 1940 H that is running and I was delighted to bring that home for 550.00. I believe that the A got 1150.00 and came with a cultivator and sickle bar mower. I have a lot of work cut out for me getting those blocks and castings home! -BTD

You were wearing a mask and holding a gun on the auctioneer, right!

Nope. One of the fella's son's was trying to move stuff and looked at me whenever a lot came up with any tractor parts. You should have seen the fight for some Ford 9N fenders, only Ford parts there and it was a frenzy. -BTD

Congratulations.

I would remember not to ever hire that auctioneer to sell my stuff in the future though. I suspect that he didn't know how to get the tractor folks out to his auction. Around here (Northern Ohio) tractor auctions are normally pretty well stocked by folks with deeper pockets than me.

Thing is, the auctioneers were friends of the family and seemed the most dissapointed of the bunch. They still have a good deal of tires I need to look at. -BTD

I'm glad that I got some H blocks. The H I bought has a frankenblock. There is a large plate on the side where the block must have suffered some major damage. The plate is about 9 inches around and is held on by about 30 screws. It does not leak a bit though. I look forward to following along with your Ol' Rusty H engine disassembly with one of the H blocks! I have a lot to learn. -BTD

I might need one of your blocks before it is said and done. Mrs. Red is surprised how patient I have been with Old Rusty so far.

My wife is amazed with my patience, yesterday on the new H was my first time on a tractor since November. Way too long. Now I have to wait to get some 90 weight for the transmission in the H. Very little was in there, hope that didn't mess stuff up too much. I will post a better assessment of what I got in blocks and transmission castings after I get them home in the next few weeks. Now I have to search the archive for the oil capacity of the H transmission. I am guessing in the area of 8-10 gallons? -BTD

6 gallons BTD. Note my post below to Bradley a few threads down.

Bradley you definitely want to remove that front plug also. You will get a quart or 2 of 90 weight from there.

Also on the belt pulley. The transmission slings 90 weight into the belt pulley assembly. It is designed to hold about 1/2 quart in the lower section of the assembly. Remove the 4 face bolts and tap the pulley out about 1/4 inch. The face casting will also come out with the pulley. You will get a good 1/2 quart or so of 90 weight and water. Condensation collects in the belt pulley assembly being the highest point on the transmission. Save 1/2 quart to a quart of the new 90W to refill the belt pulley assembly. Filler plug is on top. Don't worry about overfilling. The excess will drain back into the transmission.

Today's Featured Article - Show Coverage: Fair Weather Tractor - by Dave M.. No, Fair Weather isn't some rare brand. It's the kind you can't leave out in the rain. Here's how it happened. I had been casually looking for a tractor for weeks. I saw a few 9N's, but they had even fewer amenities than the 8N my Grandpa bought new in '52 with a Dearborn loader. That was 10 years before I was born, so I grew up thinking that 8N was the world's best tractor. Grandpa had greenhouses, with over half an acre under glass, and that 8N did almost everything. It was the only ... [Read Article]
