Difference between an "A" and a 100??

Postby kuda » Tue Oct 10, 2006 8:00 am

Here is our other Farmall. How do I tell if it is an A or a 100 :?:
My father says it is an A and my brother says it is a 100. :?

check the serial number. for 100 it is located on left side of bell housing, and should startt with 100. engine serial should start with C-123.

For Super A the serial is located on tool box / seat support. it's serial number will start with IAA. for Interantional or FAA for Farmall. Engine serial will start with IAAM for International, or FAAM for Farmall

Mind you, this is just an opinion because I've never seen over half a dozen 100s in my life, but they all have had the white grilles and all the Super As has had red ones, and the 100s have all had SS emblems on the side of the hood where the Super As has not. The serial number could tell for sure.

It is not an A, as the Super A was the first with the "touch control" hydraulics.

With the white on the grill and behind the Farmall emblems, it appears to be a 130, but the serial numer or some casting codes are the only way to be sure.

Numbers

Postby kuda » Mon Oct 16, 2006 7:59 pm

We found a silver plate with the number 3009 J

There is a casting number on the hydralic (?) under the gas tank: 357657R5

There is another casting number Transmission 351687-R8

Can anyone help here?

Thanks Rob

I believe they used separate serial number lists for the 100 and 130. So your serial number could be for either one. The tag should indicate if it's a 100 or 130 above the serial number, if it's still legible. At any rate it is not a Farmall A, as the A didn't have touch control hydraulics. If it is painted correctly it's a 130 because they had the white grille and hood stripe, the 100's were all red. But beware, some 100's have been repainted like 130's over the years, and I have even seen a few Super A's with white grilles.

Look where what's left of the model nameplate is on the side of the hood. The paint usually is a little brighter where the plate should be. Might be able to make out the model there.

From another thread, based on casting date codes it is a 100.
