Farmall M Restoration Pt 2 | Disassembly and Engine Rebuild


I was/am worried to see you hitting Cast Iron with your Solidified steel hammers, Perhaps a Metal bar between the cast and the steel hammer would be a superior effect material. Or on the other hand a Metal headed hammer, or gentler composite. You will be harming cast iron parts or machined gears sooner or later and wishing you had utilized a metal bar eventually,. How would I know... I have made this blunder myself. Life is an expectation to learn and adapt for us all. All in all decent work!

That transmission was dispiriting to see. Seems as though someone ran it with water in the oil. Ideally you can track down a decent counter shaft, or develop that one and utilize a machine to get it back in spec. End result looks perfect. Did you need to get another sleeve? Never seen one break like that. Appears as though it was inadequate. Ideally they gave you a substitution.

I know it's been said already, but growing up with these old tractors it makes me incredibly happy to see the next generation investing their time and interest in keeping these old gals running. It's all I can do to keep the 40-70 year old tractors I got from my father running, I can't imagine undertaking a project like this one. Well done.

Simply needed to say that I truly value what you're doing, and I want to and would have done likewise when I was in undergrad as well. My Distant Uncle gathered work vehicles; he had an enormous old wood red horse shelter full, including something like one running steam farm hauler. (This was during the 1970s and 1980s when they were very reasonable.) Old ranch iron has consistently entranced me. I might want to find a Farmall Whelp, Allis-Chalmers G, or a Massey Horse to tidy ready for pulling some 700-1,100 pound wheeled things around at shows. Not certain what direction to head, or on the other hand assuming any of those are even proper for pulling that kind of weight. Any contemplations?

Regardless of anything else, thank you for showing what you're doing on your channel. It's truly valued!

Those things are a monster. I figured out how to drive a Farmall H when I was 6 or 7. The M was excessively much for a youngster. We had a super MD, which actually runs. That was a wonderful farm truck too. I would accept the processing plant wide front is uncommon. Every one of the old farm vehicles around here (MN) had line crop fronts. It was just later that you began seeing wide fronts. This farm truck has had a secondary selling live water powered siphon introduced, which we generally did. Best of luck!

Squatch, Gratitude for doing great work. Your clarifications are perfect - you utilize right and justifiable terms and words portraying parts and techniques are enormously valuable. Your utilization of smoothed cardboard to cover your workspace and to safeguard your shop set an extraordinary test please for us all.

Painting the underside forestalls rust as well, from buildup. My dad, a diesel and technician, took the chrome guards off his shiny new Chevy in 1966 and covered the backs with Rustoleum. 57 years later...no rust, no pitting, simply gorgeous chrome guards. Much obliged to you for these recordings Pete. May God favor you and your wonderful family, at Christmas and consistently
