I recently bought a case DC-4.The serial number doesnt come close to what tractor data shows. Can anyone help me with this? The serial number is DC8025501.

Something doesnt line up. Your serial number makes it a foot clutch. Check serial number on side of block flange by bellhousing opposite side of starter. Either your rear end was switched out or gas tank and gauge panel with serial number or motor.

I sanded it down and can't find a thing. I looked where Steiner showed to look.

Other than the hand clutch. Everything looks to be correct for a late model. Double disc brakes, ribbed fenders, high foot rests, Hood, heart shaped wide front,

Youre right. Ive never seen that before. Must have come that way from the factory. Maybe a special order. Those hand clutches were bulletproof. Even has the correct seat spring and rear cast for eagle hitch for late models. Interesting tractor. I did read somewhere they used up parts and stuff even into 1954 and 1955 when the 400 was coming out. Might be why there is no serial number on the block. It was just pieces together at end of production.

Many of the 1953 models were equipped with a foot clutch and 4 aluminum pistons in an attempt to make them more marketable. If your DC4 has AP stamped on the transmission housing lip in back of the air cleaner (along with the serial number) it was equipped with aluminum pistons for more horsepower. Don

Chris,

You are in the exact area where the serial number and possible AP stamping should be. It should be on the engine block lip and the fact that it's not more than likely means the block was replaced with a factory replacement block at some point in the tractors life. The only way to know if you have 4 inch or M and W 4 1/16 inch pistons is to remove the head. The original 3 7/8 cast pistons were good for about 40 HP, the 4 inch aluminum pistons were good for about 45 HP and the M and W domed pistons were good for 50+ HP, which really woke a D series engine up. A turn on a dyno might give you an indication on what's inside the old DC4 as well. Nice looking machine though. Don

Should read 4 inch. Quotation marks disappear, apparently.

I don't know what exactly you're asking. That serial number makes your tractor a 1953. Also Tractordata sometimes isn't real accurite on info

Not sure if this will be of any help but might be more helpful than tractor data.
