International Harvester Farmall A

Here is a Farmall A that came to us from the little hamlet of Guilford, New York.

Some of the repairs included: A new pin and bushings had to be manufactured for the front axle center pivot support. Then we replaced a broken rocker arm in the cylinder head and repaired all hydraulic leaks.

At some period of time someone else had tried to replace the front crank shaft seal. They attempted this without removing the timing cover and then tried to chisel away part of the cover to remove the seal. A BIG NO NO.. They then used a silicone to try to keep the seal in place. The right side tie rod end and shifter cover gasket was replaced as well. We rebuilt the generator, removed calcium from the tires, and installed new PTO seal & belt pulley seal.

The owner of this Farmall wanted to restore & paint this tractor, but also wanted to keep some of it flaws that it acquires thru age. So new tin was not replaced. It had a previous inferior paint job, so sandblasting was the best method to obtain a quality paint finish. Following sandblasting the entire tractor was primed and the tin was sanded. Plastic filler was applied to the most prominent areas.

Before sending it to the paint room it was dyno tested at 18 hp.

Finally, International Red Rouge paint and a new set of decals were applied to complete the repairs.
