What's the best spark plugs to put in my B ? Back in the old days we used Champion J-11. Also, any good places I can buy parts that I don't see on this site ?

Thanks

old, I know there was some black market B's sold back in the '40's, they chopped off the serial numbers. My dad said it was a war era thing. Wish I had asked more questions. All the people and dealers I know that bought or sold B's are gone. Been searching on google for more info about this but so far no luck.

Thanks coleman. I don't think I'll need any major parts. If I do I'll look you up.

tractor did not come with a key switch. What does it do, just turn the power on to the distributor or does it crank the motor ? Toggle switch might work.. Key at farm store for garden tractor also.

how many positions does the switch have, and what does the switch turn on and off?

Two positions, on and off. A toggle switch will work, there's one on it now. I just want to get it back like it's suppose to be.

From the factory it did not have a key switch but who knows what has been done since. Bet some one put on a universal key switch at some point in time so your better off replacing it then trying to find a new key since it is not and never was factory in the first place

The hell it didn't. My dad bought a new B in 1952 and that sucker had a key switch. You still had to pull the rod to make the starter work.

Funny I have had at least 7 of the C/Bs and most did not have a key switch on them and the ones that did had the auto parts store universal type on them and I have been around them for 30 plus years. Ya maybe the later ones had them but the older one did not. I have 2 1946 ones now and both have switches on them but not a key type. Oh by the way no reason to cuss

Most Bs came from the factory equipped with a magneto and they had a push/pull switch labeled "mag" or "magneto".
I believe the later B tractors that came from the factory with a distributer were equipped with a key switch.
I don"t believe the C ever had a factory distributer and even the early CAs had a magneto with the push/pull switch and only the later CAs with distributers had a key switch.

Thanks for clearing that up. This one came from the factory with the distributor. The man that owned it bought it new. Not sure of the model. Does anyone know what years these tractors were sold black market with the serial numbers chopped off ?

Serial numbers chopped off??? The number is or should be just forward of the shifter. Can be hard to see at times but should be there unless maybe at some point in time the transmission case was replaced which did happen at times due to some sort of problem

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
