My guess would be that the tops might be different, since more than one style was made, along with shimming could cause the problem.
Step up handles are in a different location. Kirk

Hello Kirk , Yes there were different covers as you have two of the designs in your picture but you will notice the casting number is the same , all of the 4 cylinder covers have the shifter in the same place and shimming is usually about .050 max. . The cover in the right side of the picture is the better cover because the shift rails are enclosed and well lubed , the early design has exposed rail ends which tend to rust when not shifted for long periods of time hence the reason many early Shermans are stuck in gear . That design change was made in 1960 . The earliest Sherman I have seen has a serial number of around 65,000 as ALL Shermans are Stamped with serial numbers in the front of the case . Check the two you have apart and you will see the serial numbers on them and post what they are . Thanks Tony

Hello John , I should have known you may also be keeping track of the serial numbers . The highest Combo I have seen is about 71,000 and the highest Reverser is only about 5,000 . I also noticed after Ford bought out the Sherman Bros. in 1960 , they redesigned the Sherman molds to replace Sherman casting numbers with Ford casting numbers they stopped numbering them . All Sherman's with C0NN or C3NN cases have no serial numbers on them , have you noticed that ? I have not had many real early ones in the shop like that , probably out of a 1949 or 1950 8N ? Thanks Tony

The earliest Sherman combinations were gray and I've seen serial numbers with 3 and 4 digits on those many times. Lowest I've seen was 880 something.
