Were can I find more info on the IB. I found one in a book at our local TSC but it doesn't look like the one I just bought. I need to know if there were different variations of the IB. Thanks for any info.

I have one. I will send you a few pictures. What do you mean yours dont look like the one in the book? How is it different? I believe the very very early IB and some "home made" versions did not have the c-channel frame around the front of the radiator from fender to fender. All later factory versions had the c-channel. Also the factory version used WD45 type fenders. If it is "home made" it will have the "B" type fenders. You can make a IB out of a B by rotating the rear axle housings 90 degrees forward, and modifying the front axle and lowering 6 inches. Also the battery on the IB is normally mounted on the left fender, cause the engine torque tube is shorter and there is no room for the battery under the steering column. The early IB had serial numbers included in the "B" series. The later units (about 1950 ) had there own serial numbers that started with "IB". look on the transmission top by the shift lever.

Mine looks just like an early B with hand brakes and crank start, but the serial number starts with IB.

the "IB" serial numbers started in 1946. I thought the hand brakes were gone by then? Does it have the c-channel wraparound? Very early ones had strong arm start as you said.

No it dosen't have the c-channel wraparound like yours. It looks just like a B. The serial number is IB 1957

do you think this is original, or modificiation on the tractor. a B 1957 serial number would be built in 1939, might have hand brakes, and if it was a IB model, would not have the c-channel wraparound. A later model IB 1957 would have been built in 1951, would have foot brakes, electric starter and c-channel wraparound. I think someone stamped "IB" on the 1939 tractor.
