i have 2 questions 1 were is serial no. of tractor every one has told me just open the cab door and it's there plain as day. So unless I'm blind my son is blind ,my wife is blind and my daughter is blind we are looking in the wrong place or it is missing.2nd it is an 8speed no power shift brakes are weak power steering works well right pedel has about 1 inch free play then hard but will not lock up wheel unless you pull up on steering wheel with both hands and push on pedal. left pedel goes down 2 inches on first pump then is the same as right on second pump and takes same force to stop wheel.Have blead brakes several times no change. One thing noticed is a skwealing noise when you push on brakes and turn wheelat same time. Any ideas thanks

1st year tractors mostly have the trans oil filler as a cast in part, later years are an add on piece. Rear axle size can help too.

If you listed your engine or trans serial number we could compare to those we have with known numbers.

Tractor serial number plate is right in front of you when you open the cab door - at the bottom of the dash, right down at floor level.

According to my list of serial numbers that break in the parts listing (s/n 8675001) would have occured midway through the 1971 model year, so if your tractor is white it would be after. If your tractor is a tan colour there were slight variations. The earliest ones had the fuel tank the same colour as the cab, about 1973 they went to the black fuel tank. Also, if the rubber mouldings around the windows are squared off it's one of the earliest. I think about the second or third year they went to rounded corners on the mouldings. Therefore, I'd guess if you have a tan coloured tank and square window mouldings it would be before the serial number break, a black tank and rounded mouldings would be after. As well, in late 1973 they added a decal on the lower side panels by the radiator that said Case David Brown.

Others on here might be able to get it closer using other details.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Implements and Their Use - by Curtis Von Fange. Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he reached his early sixties ... [Read Article]
