Thanks Texas ... I lived up in the mid-cities a couple of times and have a native born Texan son. Live out in Utah now.

Do you have industrial tractors?

Here are the numbers and thanks for the info.

Does that look like a cracked block to you? Just noticed that with this picture.

It certainly looks like the original block. 2C16 translates to March 16, 1962. The F inside the C is the logo for the Cleveland Foundry. The earlier blocks had DIF cast in them- Dearborn Industrial Foundry if I recall correctly. That looks like casting "flash" to me, not a crack.
I don't have any industrials but I'd sure be fixing that one up with some of the spare parts I have laying around if it were mine.

Thanks Texas for the info. Here is what may be the story. Someone probably wanted to make it a blue tractor because the newer ones were blue. So while the engine was out they painted it blue, I have found a couple of red spots around the edges. And they painted the front tin blue but never got around to stripping and painting the rest of the tractor. At least it makes a good story.

Now here is another chapter. I got referred this morning to another 62 light industrial in Salt Lake City. Originally it was a diesel but now it is a gaser. Engine smokes but it has awesome tin including almost pristine rear fenders. Serial number 167665 and code 40303 DS. Has 14.9 24 turf tires as well but the rims are toast. So ... I probably have enough parts to really make a good one. Pictures to follow.
