This tractor's serial number (FAA 126911 on the seat support, FAAM 126911 on the crankcase) dates its manufacture to 1945. I have searched the entire tractor diligently, but there is not a single casting date code on it anywhere - crankcase, torque tube, transmission, final drives, etc. Is this 'normal' for a Farmall produced at the end of WWII? It came to me equipped with an American Bosch magneto (marked "AMERICAN BOSCH CORP. / SPRINGFIELD, MASS. U.S.A.", but the place where the model and type are typically stamped is blank on both sides of the magneto and doesn't appear to have ever been marked), which I have finally determined to be an MRD-4A302. I know the standard for this model tractor was International Harvester's own H-4, but did the factory also equip them with the American Bosch?
