I have recently aquired My Dad's 1945 Farmall BN (I learned to operate tractor's on this one)
Two Questions:
Engine size
Difference between cutivision decals and regular, which should I use.

Thanks

How do I know if I have cultivision or not. or was this the only option

Phil, Cultivision refers to the tractor being offset from center. It was a sales term rather than an optional feature.

I have a '45 B Farmall and, from pics I have seen and discussions with others, '45 B Farmalls did not use the cultivision decals. The hood decal should read, "McCormick Deering Farmall"; no "IH" on the hood decal. 8)

The Super A and most Cs used the C-113 engine. A few Cs, the Super Cs and Super A1s used the C-123.

The "cultivision" word was used in advertising from the introduction in 1939. At some point, I thought fairly early, it was added to the tractors. I have nothing that documents when the change was. Guy Fay's book doesn't say.

I looked at it last night, tough shape but at least this runs. Unlike my 49 cub when I got it, Named (Ole Lazurus).
The engine is centered between the drive tubs however the seat is offset
which gives clear veiw. Can I get plain decals without the cultivision.
Thanks for all the info from you all.

You should be able to get the correct decals from Binder Books.
