Sometimes there just arent any codes ive never read why. The mag has been changed cause it would have left with an I-H mag. Old tractors have had many things changed from original and who could know just why.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I've spent a fair amount of time since my original posting scouring of the internet, and I turned up information that American Bosch supplied the MRD-4A302 magnetos to International Harvester, which was used on U-1, U-2, U-4, and U-6 power units, I-4 and I-6 industrials, and T-6 crawlers. So perhaps my mag was 'borrowed' off of one of those sometime in its past.

It's probably the angle of the photo, but I can assure you it is definitely an A. No hydraulics, just a plain ol' A. The rockshaft for hand lift and the battery box kind of make the space under and to the rear of the gas tank look like it's filled in with a Touch-Control.

Jim according to what I see in your picture you have a supper A not just a straight a now that may or may not make a small difference. I like the definition the first gentleman gave as to why the codes. Some times I wish we could pick the brains of the original owners or the mechanics or the plant workers or leaders. I guess we just have to so called, fly by the seat of our pants and use all the information others will have and keep it on file for later generations. I am in the slow process of rebuilding a a B Bn series and my, father is gone, and so I also have to rely on others information also ; thankfully I might add. Wm.
