Billy, I believe Boss told me the spin on filter began in 1974 and the alternator began in 1976.

Yes, the 140 uses the same casting codes as the Cub.

IH had a kit (I think caseIH may still sell it) to convert any of the IH's that had that type of oil filter to a spin-on.

You jogged my memory. I had a chance to meet a man that worked in the Louisville foundry up until the plant closed. He remembered new 140's setting around almost up until the plant shut down. I don't know if his memory was 100% accurate but that's what he said...

Of course, there's at least still one new 140 still in the world.... :wink:
