Did anyone notice the tag is aluminum? Moline used brass tags until early in the 1940 production. Who knows, maybe this was once a UDLX demo unit or something. Maybe sent back to the factory to be made into a row crop tractor and then re-sold??? Very interesting. Remember, these cabbed tractors were hard to sell at that time.

UDLX had brass tags. All red nose UTS used alumimun on transmission and brass on motor.

All 7 of mine are aluminum! I supsect your serial tag was restamped. If you look at the numerals they are not a clean stamp. Especially on the 0's. Why? Nobody ever will know. I have a 5 Star with similar stamping. Nobody has ever deciphered serial number. Your U is the same but shares a UDLX #. Possibile rear end is from a UDLX. The rearends were very similar except for countershaft setup for UDLX. You should keep it as orginal as possible and preserve it.

Thanks Molinegb and ed for taking the time to do the home work on my tractor. Now that I have you confused, How about a uni harvester factory equipped with an re engine? or a nice unrestored ubu with a red grill?
