Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see I agree, I have a 39 and it is a 4 speed. Looks like that is a 6 and I think that started with sn 96000.

a beauty in the rough... wish it was parked in MY shop. Visually, it looks exactly like my '41B.
SN 114144, which I believe makes it a March '41 build. Mine, however, is a flat back. Notable for me is the gusseting under the frame below the block.
A year ago, before I got brave and just jumped head first into my B, I would have been skeered to death to see all those parts laid out.
the simplicity of this two cylinder design is genius!

Did a little estimating based on some known build dates and I think your tractor would have been built right around 4/17/41. If you ever happen to get the number researched, I would be interested to know how close I was. Helps me reduce the error margin of the lists I compile on letter series tractors.

Everyone loves pictures if you have any to post.

When we get it home I will get you the Serial # unless it is unreadable. What methods of cleaning up these steel tags have you found work best so as to not destroy the #.

Cjet, I might not have been clear enough on the last post, the estimate was for 114144. At any rate, there are probably as many methods to read a bad tag as there are folks on this forum. On steel tags I use a small brass brush or some kind of plastic based scrub pad. The main thing is to try not to remove (or smear) any more of the base material than is already gone. Sometimes you can highlight the numbers by rubbing them with a marker or something and wiping off the excess.
The best viewing method I have found is a good magnifying glass and a flashlight (not necessarily a bright one) and move the light and the magnifier at different angles until you can read each number. They can almost always be read with enough patience.
I've included this photo of a pretty bad steel tag from a 43 B. It's 140268. Once you know what it is you can almost read it in the pic, but otherwise it looks hopeless when you just look at the tag.
Hope this helps.
