The delivery number and some other features show that this tractor is a 1950 model TEA20 that would have left the factory with a six volt electrical system and an 80mm engine But it has a 12 volt starter bulge on the gearbox bellhousing! It is possible that the gearbox and engine have been swapped over at some stage .A six volt engine will not bolt onto a twelve volt bellhousing so both if any must have been changed .

The number 2419 in NSW refers to a delivery made to Sydney docks between the first of July 1950 and the thirtieth of September 1950.

As a rule of thumb [ assuming the tractor has not had major surgery ]all tractors with air vents in the dash have 85mm 12 volt engines. The air cleaner is also very different on the 6 volt model having a distinctive vented top.

I would try to very gingerly remove the serial number plate and look at its back , the number impressions can almost always be seen in reverse
