This Sounds Expensive

My '45 Farmall H is making an expensive sounding noise. It is a solid snapping noise made while underway in any gear. I was thinking it was coming from the front bolster area, but I fear it could be coming from under the deckplate, only I don't feel it in the seat of my pants as I drive, I hear it and it sounds like it comes from up front. The wheel bearings are good, I replaced them last year. This is pretty limited and lame information, but any assistance on where to go from here to diagnose this problem would be appreciated.

does it click each time the front wheel goes thru one revolution, each time the rear wheel goes thru one revolution? or does it happen faster in 1st gear than in third. if so it is related to the transmission or rear end. doe sit change with engine speed, not ground speed? may be engine --clutch related?

Redbaron could well be right! Bolts loosened up on one front wheel of my M and wallowed out the cast center before I figgered out what was up! Took less than a half hour. Ruined the center and my day.

Hi Jim
Check all of your wheel bolts, If one is a little
loose they will make a snapping noise like you describe,have had that happen to me before. luck RB

I checked the mounting bolts and found all three loose on the right front rim. Thanks for the info. This is a great forum.

Cool. I hadn't even thought of this solution. My M's front is making a clicking noise that I could feel in the steering. I just assumed it was front wheel bearings, but this makes more sense. I've got brand new front tires. I'll check these bolts to be sure they're tight. Maybe, I'll be able to save my wheel-bearing and seal money for some other worthy project.

What a GREAT web site!!
