Looks like a VAC, I have a tough time with serial nr VC5360012. I did't think VC were built that late, maybe the stamper had a hangover and forgot the "A". VT328 is the block casting nr for a Case built engine.

Doesn't look like the Stockton hitch that predated the Eagle hitch but looks kind of familiar for some reason?

The link below is an operators manual for pre Eagle hitch VA tractors, sometime prior early/mid 1949 although I would bet not every VA tractor built in later 1949 had to have an Eagle hitch say if a Farmer already had a preferred hitch that worked off the belt pulley high pressure pump & cylinder hydraulic system maybe Case might accommodate?

Also check the operators manual pics up against your tractor, PTO is the old style that was changed sometime in 1949 or 1950?

when EH came in 1949 production it was std on the VAC but optional on all other models,, I never thought about a 49 or later VA for example if it would have the non EH pto style or not,, but it would be a good bet they would have them up if they could,, every EH I have or seen has the pto with the rod with loop,, would have been a pain with a top link to use the rope engage style, I have seen at least one VAC that was ordered EH Delete though

Thanks Joe. I know I took a picture of the serial plate and then typed the number in my docs for reference. When I started posting I must have deleted or not saved the image. 🤷‍♂️ I fairly certain thatís what it was but..... -Any recommend service and parts manual brands?
Preferably one with some good breakdowns of systems before I start breaking it down to replace seals.
-Is there a term used for that hitch system? I keep seeing pre - Eagle Hitch but..... Not much of a farmer or tractor aficionado here.

How about checking your model/serial nr tag again and see if we can get passed the lack of "A" heartburn.

I don't have and manuals other than issued by Case. I understand the Jensales manuals are a direct copy of the original Case manual and the I&T manuals are pretty much useless. Can't prove either general impression by me.

Both these links are 1953 manuals, they may not have 100% of tractor's info but I don't know of any older service or parts manuals. I think either one on these manuals, along with the previously posted operators manual, will take care of anything that you will need to know.

The first link is a service manual provided by Mike Johnson, use the drop down menu. I don't know where mj is now, haven't seen a post from him here lately. 2nd manual is an on-line VA parts manual. You can also look up parts on the CaseIH parts site.

Joe, again you do such a good job of documenting, and providing information. If I see you post, I take the time to read your posts. Thank you again for all you do here. Dan
