I confess to not knowing IH Farmalls as I have have Allis and Case. I helped a friend relocate his Dad's originally purchased FARMALL C from the family farm to his property. The seat toolbox platform is gone as it had a Knoebler aftermarket seat system and no serial number plate. Can the castings down by shifter platform or anywhere else be used to determine the year? I see from the archives that the C versus super C visual cues are easier. I am sure it is a C but need to date it? Thanks.

There should be an engine number, stamped (NOT CAST) into the block, top edge, below spark plug #1, obscured by the governor control rod. It will NOT be the same as the original serial number, probably higher. But I believe it will be close enough to get you in the general time frame of the serial number.

Here is a picture someone else posted years ago.

That's a part number. You need to find the casting date codes.

They're in the form of a number for the month, an impression of a screw head, a number for the day, another impression of a screw head, and a letter for the year.

Month and date are normal. There are references for the letter year code all over the internet, but for a C:

R = 1948

S = 1949

T,U,V = 1950

W = 1951

X = 1952 (not sure if they made any C's in 1952)

T only is 1950. U or W is 1951. Some say they have seen V.

Thanks for the replys... Gene is there a reference for breaking down the casting codes.. The one on the foot platform I think is similar to 350011 give or take. I will be looking at it later when I visit.

check the breaks, the C has band breaks and straight break peddles, while the Super C has disk breaks and curved break peddles.

Correct the cast codes will determine close to the week it was built

Today's Featured Article - Show Coverage: Fair Weather Tractor - by Dave M.. No, Fair Weather isn't some rare brand. It's the kind you can't leave out in the rain. Here's how it happened. I had been casually looking for a tractor for weeks. I saw a few 9N's, but they had even fewer amenities than the 8N my Grandpa bought new in '52 with a Dearborn loader. That was 10 years before I was born, so I grew up thinking that 8N was the world's best tractor. Grandpa had greenhouses, with over half an acre under glass, and that 8N did almost everything. It was the only ... [Read Article]
