Have a tractor with serial number B801229 B245 on the upper right side of the transmission case. It also has the number PD 105 10 7 B 5 on the left side of the engine case. Can anyone tell me what year this tractor was manufactured. I know that the high serial number makes one thin this was a later model, but i have seen several serial number from late 60's to early 70's that also have serial numbers in the 8000's. I was told it was a 72 but also told it may be a 75.

You need to look harder and get the unit number. It should be stamped close to the serial number, possibly closer the outside. Serial number is probably more consistent with a 72 than 75... but you still need the UNIT number.

I think that the B245 is the unit code, as the European ones seem to have a different order of Month, then day, then year, instead of year , then month then day as the US ones have, and most European ones also do not have the final letter for the night/day/afternoon shift info, so it should be February 24, 1975.

My serial number list only has "C" (U.S.) serial numbers, and '75 starts at 450700. Can you find the unit number? Should be something like 5D17B (year, month, day, shift) and should be stamped near the serial number. Will also be on the foil tag under the hood, if it's still there.

He's gonna need a unit code for sure. B-prefix serial numbers are non-sequential. Posting the correct s/n won't be helpful.

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]
