Hi Andy,

My 18-36 has this tag on the radiator.
Brecht, it looks like your Hart-Parr was originally sold locally to me.

Will they be at any more MN shows yet this year?


That is a really cool brochure. that would be a cool set to have with a tractor that has that tag on it.
Im going to do some investigating on all the Hart parrs I know of and see if they are all predrilled or not. They might have just come that way from the factory.

Ive done some investigating with the radiator holes that ive been finding. I suspect that they were predrilled at the factory. I have seen over a dozen tractors since I last posted that all have the holes and no signs of having a tag ever.

So update on the project.

I feel that 50% of the hart parrs I come across have the same issue as mine had with the splines on the impute shaft being wore out. I think my tractor had a life of belt work and the shaft shows it.
with the engine off and the clutch engaged, I would be able to turn the pulley nearly a 1/4 of a turn before the splines would actually lock and stop it. you shouldn't be able to do this and it would make an awful backlashing bang every time it ran so it was time to get fixed.

We tore out the shaft and couldn't believe how much it was wore. if you see in the pictures near my hand, that's how thick the spline should be compaired to what the end actually is.
we took the welder to it and then turned it down in the lathe and filed it square. This solved half the issue as we soon found out the couple that this shaft mated with was equally as wore out. we built that up with weld also and hand filed it to make a perfect fit.

Also sent out the clutch pads to get remade by the Clutch Doctor in North Branch MN. you have to have the transmission torn apart to get to the clutch so might as well get it all done at once. He did a GREAT job and made it a rush order for me so I could get the tractor put back together this weekend.

We will see how it all fits together tomorrow when it goes back together.

Hey all,
Been a while since I provided an update. We completed the transmission work this fall and got the shaft all installed. It works perfectly now with no slop. I have to fix a minor leak in the radiator yet and do a little work on the steering.

In October, my nephew and I got to take the Hart Parr out for her first parade. the weather was perfect and the colors were amazing on the trees.

good thread,
I really like to see young folks involved in our history. Glad to see the HP back in running condition. Also love the natural patina...looks real right just like it is!
Tony
