Best shop manual for Super A

Postby matt2820 » Sun Jan 22, 2023 12:07 pm

I have a '52 Farmall Super A that, unfortunately had many hands working on it over the years and now I'm challenged to put it back in running order. Though I am somewhat mechanically inclined I'm a firm believer in not necessarily following instincts when it comes to putting things back together. Might anyone suggest either a reliable repair manual or a factory supplied shop manual? Thanks!

After your second post you can access the manual section. In the upper left corner of this page click on Quick Links and scroll down to PDF Manuals. Click on that and you will see the menu for all the manuals on file.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Matt I work in Hatfield not too far from you. Good luck with the A

Several Super A owners here. So, if you have questions… ask.

Welcome! I rebuilt a '48 SA about 10 years ago (sold it a few years ago), so if you have questions, ask away! Never know... I might even remember how to do some of the things I did!! :lol:

We just picked up a 53 Super A this month from 3rd generation owner and no manual.
As I am a new user, this is my second post so I will now try to download a manual here so I can maintain tractor correctly.

I&T manuals are pretty good if you have some tractor mechanical experience. Not good on how to's. Available at some places that offer farm supplies, etc..
I have an excuse. CRS.
