Model B serial number ?

Welcome Guest, Log in or Register

Report to Moderator

I found a model B here in Michigan I am checking into. The chasis s/n is FAB 218641, 1947 from what I can see and the block s/n is M219556G, below that is FAB. I am guessing that these 2 are original mates at the factory. The question I have is what does the "G" identifier stand for at the end of the motor s/n? Perhaps gasoline? Any response would be appreciated. Thanks, and Happy Holidays. Otis

These engine and serial numbers are pretty believable together. I have 215899 with engine 217272 and the same prefix and suffix letters you have. I don't know what the G is either. Guy Fay's book doesn't have a meaning for that code.

I would like to know the date codes that are cast into it.

Hello Mr. Becker.
I still have not gotten out to see the cast codes on the B yet, but I will know what they are in the future. You see, the owner said my brother and I could have it, just haul it away. I can hardly believe it. Lot's of good things about this tractor, but unfortunately we are after the engine for another application, so I will be parting it out. If you are still interested, I will let you know what codes it has when we get it to the shop. Take care. Otis

Yes, whenever you get it I would still like to know what date codes you can find. Since they are fairly close together, I would like them so I can make comparisons with my tractor.

Since this thread is getting pretty old, you might just email them to me when you get the chance.

Thanks Jim for responding. I will check into the cast date codes on this tractor to see what we may have. Today when I was out there the weather was rather cold, windy and the snow swooping in. Too bad this machine has been unprotected for the past couple years, but still in rather fair condition. Give me a couple days to get back to you on this. Take care. Happy holidays. Otis

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
