I just Bought 2 F-Series tractors. One i can tell i'm positive is an F-20..(says it right on the tag). Though the other one I bought has characteristics of both an F-20 and a Regular. But I dont know which one for sure?? Things that make it look as if it were F-20..spots of red paint(IH painted everything red after 1936..regulars purduced until 1932)and the other thing that looks F-20ish is that the steering spindle of the front end is inclosed like an F-20 and not open gears.**Things that make it look like a Regular: Bronze Carb, smaller cut off's on the rear, steering spindle is shorter than my F-20, tank has only one fuel holding area, and the tag dosnt say F-20 like my other one just a serial # wich is 80,221..which would make this tractor if it is a Regular a 1930...but why the red paint?..maybe i can spend more time looking for Grey? If anyone wants pictures to compare these tractors, my F-20 to the Mystery tractor just ask. Any Help would be great!!! Thanks, Ryan Free

Some people painted those old gray tractors red. I guess just to make the neighbors think the tractor was newer than it really was. lol. The first thing I would do is see if the serial numbers match up. F-20's had serial number on the number plate on tool box. Also stamped into frame rail and on the side of the engine. If these numbers all match up that would be a sure bet on the year. If these numbers are all different then look at the serial number year chart and find out what is going on. It could be that you will find that the engine, frame, and serial number plate are all three from different years. A sure bet that the tractor is a peice together. Regulars and F-20's are basically like sister tractors. They have alot of parts that you can just take off of one and put right on the other one. Pretty convenient for an oldtimer to put a couple F-20's together to make one tractor and then still use that old regular out in the ditch for parts over the years. There are alot of F-20's and regulars that have blended together over the years.

Maybe it's a collection of parts-pieces put together to make a functioning tractor.Some of those old farmers didn't have a lot of money to spend.

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]
