Here is what I see on your tractor from the one picture. As B-maniac said the rear wheels, nor the front are original. In fact I might be mistaken, but the rear axles look like 12 or 15 spline (can't tell for sure from the pic) instead of the 10 that would have been used up until SN 460000. They almost have to be the later available (1945) bolt in hub rear wheels. The front wheels, if rubber from the factory, would have been solid steel disc instead of slotted.
As Bman and Wilamayb said, it currently costs $35 plus $9 shipping(I think it still says $8 on the website) to get the detailed info from T-C Club. It does still say it's for members only, but I think if you order online they will process your order regardless. The document you recieve will always give warehoused and ship dates, branch house, and most of the time final destination and wheel equipment, and sometimes powerlift serial number if it was so equipped. I can tell you this from much research and documenting other tractors that I have done. Your tractor was most likely built on 5/21/37 (Friday), but could be within a day or two of that, as long as it was just your run of the mill build. There are always exceptions to this but that is the most "likely" build date. I would be interested in any details you might be willing to share about this tractor for my records. In particular the maincase heat code number (maybe about 148-37), block heat code (if it has the original block), and powerlift serial number if it has one.
As I said before, it looks like it has axles that are not original (and maybe the axle housing as well). Maybe the tractor is made up from more than one tractor. It's not that uncommon and I would be glad to help you decipher what you have, as would many others on here. Let me know if I can help further. E-mail is always open if you prefer.
Good luck and enjoy your tractor.

Guess my e-mail was not open. I also wanted to add the same sentiment that Bob Harvey did. It does not matter to me in the least what is or is not original/ is or is not the correct part on any tractor. I am just glad to see another one saved from being busted up at a scrap yard, even if it takes ten tractors to make one complete one. Your tractor looks great. Keep up the good work.
