Anyone know why this torch cut Plate was added to this wide front? I am about to install the wide front on a Super C tractor and wanted to make sure nothing was missing or messed up.

Very good to know. I didn't know if it was done for a legitimate reason / modification, or if it was done because that axle didn't fit right, or because if something might have been broken.
If anyone has a use for it, I'll give it to you as long as you pay shipping.

The plate spaces the front end back several inches to reduce the wheelbase and turning radius. Similar plates were used on the early wide fronts on H's and M's for the same reason.

You won't need that plate on the Super C.

My knowledge does not allow multiple pictures. So here is a photo of a factory wide front end on a Farmall 340. Notice the difference between the two.

That looks like a wide front end originally on a Farmall Super C, 200, or 230 as evidenced by the rubber bumpers. Those were not on the wide front ends on the Farmall 240 or 340. Another sign of a original Super C wide front end is the rods going to the back end of the bolster plate. They go to the wide front end tube. On the 240/340 WFE they attached via threaded rod with nut on the bottom of the tube in tube. On the 240/340 wide front end the rod went to the torque tube on the back of the engine.

Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory. However the number of AC tractors still in existence today as either restored or unrestored examples is a testament to the quality of their products. This in itself is always apparent here in the U.K when attempting a purchase, as no matter what the model or condition the price will always be strong. ... [Read Article]
