The lesson I learned on splitting my H

This last weekend I finally decided to go ahead and split the tractor. I've known I had to do it because I have to pull the crank to get it turned.
After removing the frame rails and bolster I hooked up my cherry picker and removed the 2 upper clutch housing bolts. Then I climbed underneath and dropped the lift all and clutch.
I found out that I didn't need to remove the clutch or lift all to split the tractor. The way I figure it I wasted a few hours removing stuff I didn't need to.
I've been wanting to replace the seals in the front of the transmission and the liftall and I guess now's the time to do it so I won't feel too dumb for doing unnecessary work.
Maybe I should have read my I&T manual, huh?
Oh well we live and we learn.

I think you'll find it easier to put the engine back on if the clutch is removed. I put the engine back in my M one time with the clutch still in the tractor and ended up warping the clutch plate - had to replace it.

Well, just mark it up as educational,we all learn more if we go the long route,eh? By the way... could a guy remove each rail, one at a time to clean them up and paint inside them? what do you think? I've got the big casting off of the front of the M and the tractor is on a stand, ( the engine stays on)I'm thinking about putting blocks under the transmission before I do this and I've been putting it off for lack of knowledge...

A few months ago I removed the side rails on my H one at a time for sand blasting and painting.
I'm sure now that you could remove both at the same time if you support the tractor under the flywheel housing. I use blocks of wood, 6"x8"x36" and a 2x4 to support mine and make sure the wheels are blocked.

As I understand what you are saying, you only have to remove the front two motor mounts to remove the side rails. The steering/radiator support casting is removed? If so, you should be able to remove both rails as the engine to clutch housing bolts will certainly support the engine.
