Help Identify this Tractor

Postby CubRepairMan » Tue Mar 31, 2020 7:25 pm

Have a gent wanting to sell me this tractor. This in the only picture I can get of this tractor. The seat makes me think it's a Farmall A. Front axles and starter placement make me think this is a JD, but the seat looks like Farmall A. Any help out there, this might be my next project?
4 hours away, long drive to see. :help:

Looks like an A to me, with the optional Heavy Duty front axle and brace (shown in the A Parts manual).

Blaspheme with the green and yellow paint!!! :shock:

Yes, this tractor sure is a basket case. And seized, not sure on the Green, but I understand now the front axle, but yellow. I looked that up. Makes one think the whole front end was changed out. Any guess on the year. It has a Silver Farmall Tag on the Grill. Not hydraulics maybe a 47

Industrial A or International IA.
Make a bet if you look the serial number up (under the seat left side) on tractordata.com you’ll find it’s a ‘46. Got a hunch.
Common to find in yellow paint for highway and municipal use.
You can also find the serial number “stamped into” the block above and in front of the magneto. It will read “IIA 12345” and will be a match to the number under the seat.
IIA - International industrial A

Nice light switch. It is a Farmall A. It has the heavy duty/industrial front axle. The HD axle came from another tractor (the yellow parts). It does NOT appear to have the foot accelerator which would have been on an IA. It has the short oil filter. If original, it makes the serial number 97938 or higher ('44 to '47).
