Most were yellow I have seen orange also I think its a keeper
Look in front of enginr right below distributor ans see if there is a plate there with 2 bolts, if so the block will accept a hydraulic pump.
very good tractor to have
All others pay cash

Evidently a few blocks with a place for the hydraulic pump found their way into some '47 models. I've seen someone's report of an A from some time in the summer of '47 that was built that way. But my B was built in September of '47 and it was built with a A type block. If they were routinely put in at the end of the run for As and Bs, it couldn't have been more than a couple months.

Here is a general observation on appearance of various castings. The Louisville foundry didn't come on-line until 1949. Prior to that, they were all sourced elsewhere. I don't know how they handled moving the casting operations, but presume some appearance differences may have come from that change.

The round bar on this tractor ahead of the platform is the rockshaft for cultivators. It happens to be rotated down in this picture, about 90 degrees from normal operating position.

Common original colors on these tractors were red, orange and yellow. Back then, orange was a lot more common on industrial equipment. Since red was the standard IH color, where were a LOT of red ones. I'm sure other colors were used too, but they would have been pretty unusual.

Thanks, Jim. I couldn't figure out what the round bar was for. Dan
