Hey-would a 1949-1952 A with a single front wheel and split pedestal be considered a true AN or just a regular A with an optional single front wheel? I got a guy trying to sell me one and I am trying to do a little research first. Would it have an AN on the serial tag? I"m still waiting on him to send me a serial #.

A true AN/AW or BN/BW in a late styled tractor with battery under the seat will 99% of the time have a longer rear axle housing and longer axle shafts. They will also have a spacer between the drawbar frame and rear axle housing.

They did not all have 42" tires. We have had several with factory 38" tires/rims.

There were NO --H tractors made after mid 47.

Dad's A was a later 47 with the new seat and high compression gas only engine. Now that you mention 42 inch rubber it seems like he did say 42". He said it was burning exhaust valves so Deere put in rotators and that solved the problem. Evidently they had a bug or two to work out of the higher horsepower engine. Jim

My dad's first tractor was a 47 A with a single front wheel, long axles and 40 inch rubber. Would it be called an ANH. I've heard conflicting stories about that subject. Jim

Remember that the change from pan seat, channel frame to battery box seat, pressed steel frame took place during the 47 model year. So it depends.
There is technically no such thing as a late styled (SN584000) ANH or AWH. After that point Deere just called them AN or AW. While they came with 42 inch rear rubber standard, 38 inch rear rubber was a deduct option.

agree with Kent, it is a '51/'52 judging by rear wheel centers and all. nothing rare and no special s/n .probably an older re-paint faded out. $1500-$2000 if all is well with it.

the one in the picture looks to be a 52 as the 3 holes in the frame ware the block bolts on and 4 holes where the wheel weights mount and 4 round hole in the wheel casting and no they are not all the same just like girls they are all a little different

I don't think there were separate numbers for the A-AN.
If there were, what difference does it make?
If you see one you have seen them all.
What I'm saying is, from 20 feet away they all look the same.

I would say the latter because a couple of strong guys with a jack and a few wrenches could make it an "AW" in ten minutes.

Not really Richard as a true W would have a wide front and the rear axle housing would be wider and the axles longer also 40 " rear tires

Okay, maybe it would take them 20 minutes.

I'll have more info in the morning.
