The bracket on the fender could have been for any number of things I guess. The bracket over the gas tank is what intrigues me. It looks like two separate pieces of strap steel bent to fit. A factory bracket for whatever would have been just one piece. Maybe he was going to mount a toolbox there. I guess we may never know, but that sure is a nice looking 140. I bet the universal mounting frames are nice and tight!! Wish I had some that nice for Old Ugly!

That would be cool to have a radio on a restored tractor. So....they made a particular "fender mount" radio for tractors without cabs?? I don't think I've ever heard of that. They must not be popular down here ......or I guess since 95% of people here have tractors for utility purposes around the house and for a small truck patch garden.

When I was a little boy in the late 70s and early 80s, you were up-town if you had a radio mounted on the fender of an open station tractor. Oftentimes you could barely hear it over the engine noise, but someone standing across the field from the tractor could hear it good.....

The Round plug on the back under the seat on the right next to the fender is for a trailer hook up.AL Farmall Boy wrote:Al,
The tractor has the factory plug at the rear for Trailer Lights? None of the wiring has been botched or unplugged. It is all the way it came from the factory....unharmed. Instead of having a mechanical flasher module unit like the models without the switch for "turn signals", this one doesn't have the flasher module under the seat. It looks like to me that the flasher module is built into the switch for the turn signals because the rear of that switch is a huge sealed up square box (about 4"x5"). I'm sure the external light/flasher would have operated independently from those units though. It might have plugged into that factory round plug at the rear.
