5M1UC looks more like a production date code than a model number, especially if the U is really a 0, then 5M10C would be December 10 of some year that ends in a 6 (1965, 1975, 1985, etc.) during the afternoon shift.
B*049702* is a Basildon serial number for sure, and being so low I would guess that the production code 5M10C would be December 10 1965.
No ideal what J16 would be for. Check the same flat spot on the other side of the tractor, as sometimes they stamped some of the numbers on that side at the European assembly plants.
6H25B on the rear axle would be August 25, 1966, which is 8 months later than the number from the transmission, so either the 5M10C on the transmission is the assembly date code for the transmission itself, or else the transmission or rear axle was swapped out at some point since they couldn't have assembled the rear axle 8 months after the tractor left the assembly line if all of the components were original to that tractor.
As watsonsgotit said, they made 2 different tie rods, and the earlier one looks to be no longer available, so you will probably need to find one at a salvage yard or find something that's close and make it fit. If it's got the power steering cylinder under the nose of the tractor, then it's the earlier power steering setup and the parts will not be available new, only used.
