|MoMike said: (quoted from post at 06:30:11 12/31/12) My 300, yes the one in the shop re: earlier posts, has a motor without a dipstick, exhaust manifold doesn't match parts diagrams on line, so does it belong in a 300 or is it a Super H motor. Doesn't make much difference to me other than needing parts. As long as it does what I need it to do that's all that concerns me. Your opinion may differ.|
Early F300 tractors didn't come with a dipstick. See if the block casting # above the oil filter end with R1. Parts diagrams on line may show the last manifold casting IH made that would replace a F300 manifold. If so its not the one that came on the tractor. Looked at the online picture. Gas manifold pictured was used on F350 tractors starting at serial # 705 on up. It become the replacement for a F300 manifold. F300 started dipsticks at tractor serial # 9338 or engine serial # 9341.
