Thats one fine lookin' machine!!:trink39:
My FIL bought the tractor about 7 years ago from the restorer. The guy thatThe only reason I can think of for the hook on the front is to make it easy to chain the front when the tractor is going to a show. I noticed a small tag on one frame rail that gives the year. Did your FIL show this H much?
tHAT'S A REAL NICE LOOKING SUPER H. Looks like a 1954. Nice pictures.Well we finally got around to getting it a new battery, got it started and gave
it a bath. As some of you know it's been a rough 11 months, Father In Law
passed away last July, it was his tractor, and then I lost both my parents
this past Feb and Mar. There just hasn't been enough time and we really
haven't felt like doing much more than what had to be done to keep things
going and with my back problems I can only do so much anymore. We
picked up a new battery the other day dropped it in today and
she fired right up even after setting for over a year. This was actually the
first time I've ever driven it. If you've never driven one of these open wheel type
tractors it's definitely a different type feeling. I think I'll try to find a set of
fenders for it. I just feel a bit strange riding on that seat while two big rear
tires are turning right beside me.
BTW: Anyone know why there's shackles hanging off the frame, see 4th picture
and the drawbar hitch has hole is very elongated hole, is that normal or
from wear, The hitch is not original, the original broke many years ago and the FIL
bought a used one and put it on.
