Charley: The FMD serial number will be one of two places. First, check on left hand side of the engine just above and toward the flywheel end of the starter on the engine/transmission housing flange. There will be a number stamped vertically in old english script. If not there,
look on the right front corner of the engine block/cylinder head. There will be a flat boss with the number stamped horizontally. Incidentally, some Majors had a metal tag riveted on the front center of the firewall with the number stamped, which can be used if present to confirm whether the engine is original to the tractor.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king.
