I never paid much attention to what the tractors true identity was until getting on a tractor site. I bought it years ago as an 801, I think. It is the diesel, serial numbers gone below the battery. Starter side has an oil filled breather, which comes up the side. No power steering. Tranny is the sliding up and down nuetral. front to back gears. The grill is one pole down the middle with 3 bars running across. The emblem is round with stars and has the wheat in the middle. Has the 2 stage clutch. Is their any other place to look for some identification numbers. Tractor is in good shape. I need to order a few things for it now and would like to know what kind of tractor to make sure I get the right parts. If you need more info let me know.

Could'nt help it. Had to go out there and look. I fought mosquitos and darkness for these, so here goes. I may be guessing on the dates.
Casting # right side engine block-310609
casting date left side /rail pan - 85 F 2
casting # trans- 310837- date 84Y
casting # axle - 310363 - date not sure 88R?
Thanks for the interest and the help Tony.

Hi Paul, All the casting numbers you have listed are correct for your tractor , so at least you have a very original one. The dates are all indicate a late 1958 or early 1959 tractor depending on when it was sold . So you can order parts for a 1958 or 1959 it doesn't make much difference being that close . Thanks Tony Jacobs

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
