The guy had to leave for work-night shift, and today I was too late calling him, but tomorrow after school, I will go out there, and I will let you guys know what the deal is! Hopefully he will lower his pricve some, I am ONLY a kid!! After he sees me maybe that'll let me get a bargain! ha ha! He says he really needs to get rid of it, so I might be in a lot of luck! I'll tell you what happens tomorrow.. My dad says if he lowers his price to maybe $1200 or $1300.. It's ours! But, I don't know... Things aren't looking too good right now.. I am sad to say this, but this might be the 5th nice tractor in 3 years that I might have to pass up! AHHH! I'm goin crazy!

Hey, guys, just had to sneak a peak at that M. Called the guy up at his work, and said I was just gonna go look at it if its ok with him, he said sure.. I can tell you one thing, its not worth the 1500 bucks! The front tires arent matching, they are almost bald. The tin has a lot of little dings, the paint is right over the old unsanded paint, NO hydraulics, NO pto shield, bad steering play- about a 1/4 turn! Rear tires have weather cracking, but still awfully good tread. The rims are pretty rusty on the inside rear of them, and they are banged up around the edges.Wheel wieghts It does have the grille insert. No serial number tag. One funny thing is it doesnt have the "Farmall" emblem on front, It has a IH emblem.. Like on a SUPER M! Is there a way to specific way to distinguish differences between the 2? I'd say that this tractor is worth 1200 tops- and I havent even heard it run yet! it could be a terrible runner! The switch for the button is located on the rear gas tankl support though. And it has the rod going through the steering post to it- for easier access.. Well, I need some prices for tomorrow to cunsult the guy on when I go to test drive it in his field..

Kenny, it sounds to me like you could spend another $1000 on that thing in a hurry by the time you put tires all around, maybe rear rims, and tighten up the steering. That thing better run like a jewel to be worth over $1000 from your description!

With the wrong emblem on the front, and no serial tag, you'll have to do a little detective work to determine what you have. If I'm understanding your description, the starter button is actuated by a rod THROUGH the steering support post? I think that's a feature that disappeared sometime in the mid-40s. My 49 M and 52 SM both have the starter button actuated by a lever (rod) that you press down with your toe, but it goes around the right side of the post, not through it.

As to distinguishing the M and SM from each other, the SM will have disk brakes (cast-iron housings with bolts through them) and the M will (usually) have sheetmetal covers over the band-type brakes. A few late M models had the later disk brakes, and there was an option for a different type of disk brake even back into the early 40s.

See if you can scrape off enough dirt and read some casting codes on the engine, transmission housing, axles, wheels, etc. This is probably the best way to determine if it was assembled at the factory, or out of someone's parts pile.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
