Farmall M Head Question

The casting number on the head off of my '52 M is 8060 DC. What do the D and the C stand for and is it a high compression head or is it the fuel head? Thanks.

IH part number system was 8060D was original design, any small change would be 8060DA-B-C, any major change would be a different part number, this head subbed to 8574DCX, on Super M and correct replacement for M gasoline. 8574DCX was assembly, X represented that. If you wanted the whole story about IH system it would take a lot more space than we have here.

Dan, I don't have an M parts book here to tell you just what the application is, but the DC indicates that it's a third-generation modification(C) of the fourth (D) variation of the head for that engine. The way the system worked, in general, was that any two heads that started with 8060D could be swapped. The C indicated a minor change that wouldn't affect fit or hurt performance. If they made a major change so that the new part wasn't interchangeable, they would have changed the D to E, or changed the number entirely. Hope that makes some sense. Scotty

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Implements and Their Use - by Curtis Von Fange. Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he reached his early sixties ... [Read Article]
