Three tractors worth of parts and way too much BS later, my H is done aside from rear fenders. Bottom picture is how the tractor looked when I started.

What was changed from the donor tractors:

-Schwartz wide front
-Air cleaner swapped from a mesh style to the rare vortex style with glass jar to catch debris
-Air intake assembly, oil bath and all rubber boots changed.
-Ammeter, oil pressure and coolant temp gauges swapped out to newly refurbished ones
-Choke assembly
-Electric fuel shutoff solenoid
-Taller muffler does you’re not sucking down fumes all day.

And some other assorted odds and ends. The problem with these tractors is they’re not worth anywhere near what people are willing to put into them to make them special. So, I figured out how to do so without being upside down. With the little money I’ve made on the donors I’m into this project right around $1,500.

Got the PTO shaft unstuck, changed the gear oil and greased the shit out of the brush mower this AM and cut one of our neglected pastures that hasn’t been grazed this year. Tractor performed great with no issues or surprises. Dropped the oil hot after an hour of run time, had some moisture in it and under the cap (previous owner used it as a parade tractor so it never ran long) so I refilled it, will run it hard for another hour tomorrow and then drop it again along with a filter change.

Decided to cut East side pasture as well. I considered waiting and taking hay off it but it wasn’t worth it in the condition it’s in.

About five total acres, 2.5 hours, two shear bolts and around 8 gallons of fuel.

Quick video I made of it. I should’ve shut the tractor off so I didn’t have to yell but oh well.
