It could be a B that the transmision or differerential went bad on and they got one out of a salvage yard off a c they are interchangeabl. It could also be a C that they put a front end off a B on it which will also work if you change the whole front end and the steering box at the back. But it wouldnt be a 1942 factory wide front, because they werent availble till the last four years of production and were all straight adjustable axles.

here are a couple things the check. this is kind of general, not exact

1. the steering rod from the gear box on a C goes to an arm under the radiator. the rod on the B goes to the left wheel king pin area.
2. the steering arm on the gear box of a C points straight up, the arm on the B points straight down.
3. The rear wheel hub on a C bolts to the axle with a 5 bolt pattern, the B hub usually has a splined center with one BIG nut in the center.
4. The rear axles on a C are about 6 inches wider on each side than the B. Generally the C wheel hub spacing is about 72 inches while the B is about 60 inches ( i think).

there are exceptions to the rule, but this gives you a general idea of what you got.

Steve, What if a B has the 5 bolt pattern? Did they offer that pattern later on? Thanks, TractorMike

A "B" could have a 5 bolt axle if it had an adjustable front end (I think), but it would still be the narrow (approx 60 inch) wide wheel base.

Steve, You must be right because my "B" has the adjustable front end and the 5 bolt pattern. Were these harder to come by? Thanks, TractorMike

The B did have that hub option for the 40" to 68" wheel tread option (I have one). A B will be about 33" between the final drives, while a C will be about 45". Look at the steering gear as mentioned above and measure between the final drives - that shoul get you set.
