[Return to the Shed]

This picture is a 1933 version. The tractor first appeared in 1932 (only 25 were built the first year). The earlier models had a single front wheel, later models had duel front wheels or wide-fronts.

  • I hope some on can help me. My friend in Ill. has a Masey- Harris 20. The engine is a Hercules UI think 1XB. It has a p.t.o. on the left and the govenor driven from a double gear. He can t seem to get the govenor to work.I haven t seen the tractor but what hes says it has to be a Hurcules engine with an updraft carb.on the left side.I do not have any repair manuals and he says he does. He has been looking high and low for a replacement govenor but hasen t found one yet. Because he has stated the P.T.O. and govenor are being run of of the same gears I wonder if the have a special setup and he has the wrong type.Any help from the group would be better than none. Thanks robert Tevault

  • I have a 1937 F12 for sale. It s been sitting for 25+ years, so no idea if it runs. But it does turn over and seems to have compression. Rubber on tires is shot, but the steel of the spoked wheels is good. Location; Wausau, WI. Email for pics or more information.

For somebody serious, I believe one or both of these could be restored. Otherwise, they will make nice lawn ornaments on either side of my driveway.

  • My father just purchased another F-12 to restore. The serial number indicates that it is a 35 however, the block does not have the serial number stamped on it. Another odd thing about the block, casted into it is 8-20-P above 1808D I believe it is. Anybody have an idea what that indicates? The 3 other F-12 blocks he has have no such casting in the block except for the 1808D. Thank you for any info.

Will try to repair it if I can't find one. Can't wait to get it running since my son and I bought this close to 10 years ago, then my son went to work in Mexico. Maybe some day soon.

  • I restored a 1937 F-12 with fenders, round spoke front and rear wheels, and a hydraulic lift under the seat. I even put NEW tires on it. It starts on the first or second crank and the hydraulic lift works too. I grew up using this tractor to feed beef cattle hay every morning. I would take off my belt and tie the steering wheel to the seat in a slight turn and then get in the wagon and toss out the hay as the sun came up. My stepfather paid $35.00 for this tractor. It now looks as new as a 1937 tractor can look.

  • I have a f12 that is almost done being restored every bolt and nut. I think if a jd 420 high crop is worth 25000 because it has a drop rear axle than a beautiful little f12 should be worth at least three grand. An easy f12 resto costs about 2500 in labor plus parts and the tractor. Enjoy

    Lyle Asher wrote on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 (PDT):
  • Our first tractor was a F 12 boought used an 1944 while I was in high school. On steel narrow rear rims with big lugs and row crop front wheels. I remember plowing with a 2 bottom plow nd when you would hit a hard spot and the furrow wheel would spin part of a round the draw bar would hit the ground andI would have to unhitch,dig under the draw bar, hook a chain to the plow,pull out to one side, rehook and go again. We farmed a little over 100 acres with it. Dad loved horses and would brake colts I had to do a lot of begging to get him to buy that first tractor. Riding in the F 12 was a lot better than riding behind a team of horses on a sulky plow.

  • I have acquired a 1938 F-12 with the hydraulic option. It is on rubber and the back tires even still hold air. It seems to be complete even down to the crank. The engine is froze and I have started putting PB-Blaster on nuts and bolts. I am trying to decide wheather to keep and restore it or let somebody else that knows more about what they are doing. I would like to know what it is worth as is and some kind of an idea what it might cost to restore it.

If so would the color of the tractor be red or battleship grey? Also this is our first experience working with a magnetos ignition. We are trying to get the "ole girl" running and need to know where to set the timing on the magnetos. If there is any way you can help- suggestions, directions to go for answers- we would greatly appreciate it!

  • I just wrote a few words about the F-14. Spent hundreds of hours on 3 F-12s between 1939 and 1969. Incredibly sturdy machine. Its only problem was the fuel pump, and that only after a good many years of use. Fuel pump diaphragms back then didn't last forever. I think IHC thought they'd get a little more power from a downdraft carburetor, hence the need for a fuel pump. The F-12 on steel was a pretty anemic device, but rubber tires transformed it! We routinely pulled 2 12" bottoms, or a 7' disk double disk harrow, both in second gear. The 7' disk was bought originally to be pulled by a 10-20, so the little F-12 had a big heart. It was pulling at its limit, but I never saw any sign that we did any damage. The gears were huge for the horsepower transmitted; maybe that's why there was never any transmission trouble. The engine was very modern for 1932--full-pressure lubrication + an oil filter.

  • My father since retirement in the late 70`s has been an antique tractor puller and quite the collection of Farmall`s including the 706 he bought brand new that is still in use today around the farm. He pulls f-12`s and f-14`s every chance he gets. He doesn`t care if he wins or loses he just has fun in the Ohio area at these tractor pulls. So, if you ever see a tall good looking man with dark hair and blue eyes, thin and around 72 yrs.old tooling around at the tractor pulls on a f-12 or f-14 here in the state of Ohio throw your hand up and give him the farmers wave and hollar HI BILLY EVANS!!He will wave back at you.

  • I am looking for a picture of a Farmall F-12 with the single steel front wheel and narrow lugged rear wheels. I think this would be about 1927 or 1928 model. My dad made twenty eight crops with one.

  • I have just aquired a F-12 (I believe) with a tricycle front end. The tractor is in rough shape. I was wondering what the value would be and the likelyhood of selling or a partial trade for an "A".

  • I just bought a '37 Farmall F-12 at my Gandfather's estate sale. It was bought new by my Great-Grandfather in 1937 an used to farm about 80 acres. I am planning on restoring the tractor(my first) and would like help on getting started. The engine is stuck and that is my biggest hurdle. If any one has an idea of where to find good reference material please e-mail.

  • I have an F-12 with original wide front end. It also has the two speed transmission. Had it in four parades and got four trophies. I would like to know how rare the wide front end is. I have only seen one other one like this. I also know of a place that sells new manifolds. They run around 100 dollars. Also found a place in Ind. that has new fenders. Thankyou.

  • We farmed 100 acres with an F-12 back in 1949-1952. I was 11 then and did plowing with 2-14" plows and cultivated with the 2 row cultivator, it was all I could do to work the lift lever. The tractor was mounted on rubber with 11.00" X 40" nobby's on the rear with one single in the front. It was somthing to stop as it had hand brakes so when you had to stop it you had to take your hands off the stearing wheel. It was nice for making sharp turns though because the front wheel would apply them auotomaticly. This brings back a lot of memories of my boyhood days around Clearwater, Minnesota

  • I just purchased an f-12 that has been in storage for 20 someodd years. The tractor is on steel but has a set of rims to go with it. If anyone has the time to email me with information about my new project it would be greatly appreciated. The previous owner said it was a very rare tractor with two transmissions and one of the first three point lifting mechanisms to be used on a tractor.

  • My dad is restoring a McCormick-Deering 10-20, and I had done quite a bit of research on the paint. I believe the F-12 uses the same colors. For the red on the wheels, use IHC 5150 and for the gray use DuPont Centari 27625 (or the number might have been 27635, whichever is called charcoal gray, I lost the receipt and I'm going off my notes).

  • I am currently restoring a 1936 F-12. It was a total basket case when I found it. I had to cut three trees out that had grown through it and dig it out where it sunk nearly one and ahalf feet in the ground. I took it as a challange. But I am looking for a pair of steel front wheels (narrow)and a complete magneto assy. Keep them out of the ditches and off thier tops and have a good day.
