Another serial number question

Postby Cornbinderlover » Sat Nov 07, 2020 4:21 pm

I can only see the numbers 1540 and I think a 2 on the serial number plate of my Super A and it doesn't appear to be any other numbers. Which doesn't coincide with the SA serial numbers. The engine numbers are FAAM 297556. Are there any other place the actual number may be. If I just have to go by the engine number what year tractor would you say this is?

Probably 1950. You could try using some lacquer thinner to remove the red paint from the serial number plate. The stamped serial number is likely just full of paint.

Yep, clean the paint off and you'll probably find the serial number. It's probably those "pretty" numbers they stamped in the early 50s that are hard to read- Don't scrape the tag, use lacquer thinner (I used carb cleaner once) and keep rubbing with a rag.

Just a swag, the serial number will probably turn out to be about 296000 or so. That would make it late '49. You can check date codes and shouldn't find anything past about October 1949 (S).
