That's right, Bob. But his plow is a 44H with a levelling lever, and as far as I remember, once the lever was added in place of the crank the basic plow remained unchanged throughout the production run, except for the hitch. After 1948, there is no real way to date a 44 without documentation, which is what he had asked originally. Old timers told me that crank was difficult to use and almost impossible, once rusty, without lifting the plow out of the ground. With an extension on the lever all you had to do was snap the clutch, reach around and adjust the lever, never having to get off the tractor. With the lever, you could start a headland or plow in a dead furrow as level as the rest of the field without ever getting off the tractor.
