A or Super A?

Postby awander » Sat Jun 27, 2009 10:13 pm

A friend has an older Farmall that she thinks is an A. I have looked at it(but not too closely) and it has hydraulics(left & right side separately moveble).

It also has a rectangular instrument panel that looks like it forms one end of the battery box.

I suspect it is a Super A. Am I right?

Also, she recently bought a new 12V battery to replace the dead one. Would this tractor have originally been 6V? Did they make A's or Super A's in 12V?

She has a Super-A. The only difference is the "A" had manual lifts.

What about the instrument panerl? I have seen pics of "A"'s with a small oval instrument panel-I think they were A's anyway.

Yeah, the instrument panels were different, along with a lot of other details.

All the Super A's were originally 6 volt.

Thanks, guys, That;s what I thought, but I gotta' say, it is not as easy to find info about the "A"'s as it is for the Cubs-thanks to this fine website!
