Default Early Tractractor (McCormick)

Had to save this one , could'nt resist

I am going to need some help on getting this old girl back in shape , She is still a long ways from home ,but I will get it heading east as soon as possible , Does anybody know if some parts are interchangeable with 10-20 tractors ??

As I am told this is a 1929 10-20 Tractractor

Kevin

Yes, many parts are interchangeable. The left side radiator casting is different so that the air cleaner will bolt to it, otherwise that is all same. Earlier models had the 10-20 tractor gas tank, but mine has one unique to the trac-tractor. If you can get ahold of Wendels' 150 year IH book you can see the differences, you could build it up as an early looking model but that would have different fenders and a tractor seat, yours looks to have the late platform. Parts are around, seems like California? Mine came from northern Kansas, a friend had one that came from north eastern Colorado.

Kevin,

This is a Model 20 TracTracTor not a 10-20 TracTracTor. I can tell from the steering clutches and the seat sheet metal. To be the early version the clutch housings would be larger in diameter and pointed all the way to the top. This tractor most likely would have been built in 1930 or 1931. Looks like you have an industrial manifold on the tractor, more than likely from an I-30. Like Russ said, the worst part will probably be the sheet metal including the tank. Only used on the Model 20. Engine is all 10-20 wheel tractor with the exception of the fuel pump. Hope you have yours intact. I attached a pic of my 10-20 TT. You can see the differences. Serial #TT-548.

Close. Can't forget about the Model 15. That immediately followed the Model 20. It was a redesign that addressed many issues with the Model 20. IH built just 50 units, then renamed it the T-20. Only 2 known to have survived. I have never heard nor seen a 15-30 style TracTracTor. Would sure like to find one! Good Luck with your Model 20. Willing to help any I can. Also have one of those.

Here is mine as bought. Since then I have taken it apart quite a bit, bought a manifold, hood and side curtains. I'm also going to have to change the engine out. This one has power takeoff, had a cable blade on it before I bought it.
The original owner had something to do with prisoners of WWII working farms or a farm here in Kansas.

Dear Kevin Feel your pain. It took me 6 months to figure the process out. First off the photo file of the picture must be small like 1200X 850 pixels. Setting the camera at lowest setting is the easiest way to do that or there is a way in most windows programs to reduce pixel number.[ Its called RESIZE ] Once you have your pics in some type of program[ I use Picasa a free down lode] . Now click on Post Reply above. I find it is best to write a few words in the writing box first, then scroll down the page to Additional Options section. In that area find the Manage Attachments box and click on it. When that box comes up click on the Brouse box. That will take you to your control panel to find your pictures in your picture save area. Double click on a chosen picture and it will take you back to the manage Attachments section where you click on upload box. Once the picture has uploaded you can do that 3 more times till you have used all your space. Once that is complete click on close this window at the bottom which will take you back here. At the bottom you can click on the box to view the pics as they will appear. you can now write the rest of the words to match the pictures. When you are happy with your post you then click the Left box and it will be sent as a new post. It sounds complicated but its a piece of cake after you have done it a couple hundred times. Good luck and give it a try. Ed B

Smile Re: Early Tractractor (McCormick)

Quick question on paint color, I am a long way from paint,but I am assuming a 1929 model 20 Tractractor was painted "GREY"

I am very impatient to get the tractor home and get going on the mechanical restoration But I am knee-deep in working on a
1936 T20 restoration right now ,somehow I ended up with
three of them in my various travels looking for bits and pieces ,
The first one had a pretzeled connecting rod, ,and the tin work was very rotten and rusty,But surprisingly very little undercarriage wear ,even the engine has virtually no wear on the bearings ,cam etc. So then I ran across a fella who had 2 more of them for sale , one of which had very good tin and is a wide track version to boot , the other a pretty decent parts machine, Between all 3 one very nice machine will emerge , It will be the wide track model with matching engine block etc. I will post some pix soon
Kevin
PS the widetrack was a one family owned machine with the complete history since new!!

With the old TracTractors, one is never enough it seems. It's really too bad CaseIH isn't doing more to support the old machines like Ma Deere does.....
