basically the B model was built from 1938-1958. They started with a 116 inch motor and bore was increased about 1941 to get 125 cubic inches. The tractor weight is about 2000 pounds and has about 20 HP. Models after 1940 came with foot brakes, starter and generators. They have a basic small hydraulic system as optional equipment. THey had a mag ignition untill the late 50s when it got a distributor. All had 6 volt positive ground system as original. Option was a PTO shaft out back, and a belt pulley off the rear left of the pto. Most had the pto option.

Unless they are different over there, you won't get much road speed out of a B. Without looking, 7.5mph I think is the figure in my book.
All the best anyway,
God Bless,
