Kuda, you have a 1955 Farmall 100. At least if it was mine that is what I would call it.

From what I see, it could just as easily be a '57 130. Get some casting date codes off of it to get the answer.

It certainally has a serial number that fits both. You're right, we need the casting codes. I'm sure its not a Super A though.

Here you go...

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

There is another casting number Transmission 351687-R8

Kuda - those are part numbers. Casting codes will appear as 10*17*A which is the month, day and a year code for when the piece was cast.

Those are part numbers. We need date codes. Follow this link http://www.tmtractor.com/id/id_004.htm to see what they look like. You may find them near the part numbers. The engine block may have one on the right side, low at the front. The final drives probably have them on the inner side.

Lets not all speak at once.

Thank you. The tractor is at my brothers barn. I will have to go over again or call him. It does have the 100 emblem on one side (the other side which I took the picture does not have the emblem any more). That would lead us to beleive it is a 100 but they and adhered with screws that do not look stock so it may have been changed. I will get numbers.

I have a number 36620 on the block behind the oil filter

I think I found the date code 2.7.A

That would be Feb 7, 1955, which makes it a 100 like Merlin said, not a 130. I like to see more than one code, to guard against getting the code from a part that was replaced. But transmission housings hardly ever get changed.
