I just finished restoring my 1939 Farmall A tractor and now I'm starting on a F-M Model Z engine. I have never rebuilt one of these, but then again, I never rebuilt a tractor either. So I'm looking for recommendations on places to get parts and probably a manual if they exist.
My first question is, how can I find out when this engine was built or is that wishful thinking? I'm also posting a couple of pictures of my engine before I get started.
If you're interested you can see pictures of my A at the following site: http://www.ytmag.com/cgi-bin/viewit.cgibd=farmall&th=782476
