There are a couple of other locations to check that will help identify the age of your tractor. The hydraulic pump and trumpets have unencoded date markings.
Other items with date indicators include:
Cylinder Head - Between the #2 and #3 plug holes
Oil pan -Bottom
Transmission case - Right side, forward, down low
Rear end housing - Left side under PTO shaft, upside down
Engine - Starter bump out
These date markings are coded. "A250" would break out to Jan 25 1950.
Month - A=Jan, B=Feb, etc.
Day - one or two digit number
Year - one digit number
The late 52 thick wall lift arms may have been changed over sometime during its life.
Another clue would be the serial number stamped into the block - Does it have diamonds or stars? The thin sheet metal sleeves were replaced at S/N 433578.
Good idea to work on one thing at a time - Lift problems could be several things but you will need the tractor running to properly diagnose it.
