Farmall B new owner

Postby Cyarznbowicz » Thu Apr 13, 2023 2:01 pm

New member of the forum and first post. I have inherited a 1941 Farmall B. I'm looking to learn all that I can about the tractor.

Thank you
Chris

You can call Morgan McDonald at McDonald Carb and Ignition (706-367-4179). He can probably fix you up with the screw. JMHO. Stan

Assuming they are the same for different tractors, it is a 5-40 x 1/4".

Also I found a small assorted pack of brass carb and ignition screws at my local auto parts store.
