If you need a multi-disc clutch, call Burgh Equipment in Harmony Pa. They had one a few months back. I doubt they have sold it.

Old-F20 and I agree. Look for a flat on the engine block, IIRC, on the carb side up near the front. If the block is early, i would say it is a fairly safe bet the tractor is too.

Any way you can post some pictures?

Regulars before 27 didn't have a serial number on the frame. Mid 27 to mid 29 had them in front of the radiator on the left side. Mid 29 and newer had them back by the clutch housing on the left side just like an F20.

Engine serial will be your only number assuming the block hasn't been changed out.
As far as repo tags go, with the exception being sold by Mrs. Deiner they are pretty much Crap. I've seen them all and the craftsmanship of the late Mr. Deiner's tags were as good as factory IH.

i forgotten about the number on the engine matching the other tractor number i do remember those guys saying that it was the same. i will look tomorrow when im back out there the engine is currently out of the tractor i took it out and put it in a shed at the farm. i do remember thinking that it would be a LOT easier to have a donor engine because this tractor was so bad the crankshaft was rusted beyond salvaging and the clutch was totaly destroyed along with about everything else. to be 100% honest i was going to scrap this tractor until these two ih collectors started drooling over it and begged me to sell it. but for the most part it is BAD SHAPE the tank had shotgun holes no hood no tires though rear wheels were still out of the dirt is there anybody out there with a possible donor tractor for sale or a LOT of parts? thank you and i will post some pics and a serial #. thank you guys so much. i look forward to posting updates.

Keep in mind that newer reproduction serial tag plates are flat - originals were acid etched, so ended up with raised lettering. I looked and called all over the place trying to get one replicated with raised lettering...but sounds like it is not possible due to laws govering the usage of the chemicals used in the original process.

Here are two pics. The reproductions are available at www FordsonHouse DOT com. We bought one from a junkyard as we wanted to keep the look of an old, worn one - having the correct serial number did not matter to us as much as having that old look (we are keeping our Regular rusty - it will never be repainted). My husband will have to do a little repair to the holes in the plate though.

And yes, the serial number for your tractor should also be stamped into the top side of the left frame near the area of the radiator.

You can get a new tag through Rice Equipment or OEM Probably other places too. Hope this helps, Good luck, Mark.

I've seen a serial number stamped on the frame rails of some Regulars. The one I am familiar with is stamped on the top of the left-side frame rail, adjacent to the engine.

It may be under a few layers of paint/rust. Scrape carefully, it may not be stamped very deep into the frame.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Check the frame up by the radiator. They were stamped there also. It may take a wire brush and cleaning, but it should be there.

For parts ask Nebraska Cowman or Nebraska Kirk. Kirk finds some amazing iron.
