Whats The Difference?

8 posts in this topic

I have looked all over the internet trying to find out what the real difference between a C & a Super C is. I know that the Supers had a 123 in them,but besides that, are they any other differances? May sound like a dumb question to most of you - its just driving me nuts.

The C had the 113, SC had the 123.

The SC had a water pump, the C didn't.

The SC had a taller radiator I think and the grill was taller also.

Every SC I've seen had a live hydraulic outlet on them.

Farmall C had a draw-bar style hitch. (Built 1948-51)

Farmall SUPER C had the "Fast Hitch" implement attatchment system. (Built 1951-54)

The Super Cs have disk brakes like there bigger brothers, the S-H and S-M

the later ones most likely had all coil ignitions. allthough our 52 SC has a mag? seems like 51 or 52 was the end of the mags on all our other tractors. i didn't realize the odler Cs didnt have a water pump. and i know the Super Cs have the same gen belt as an MD. also the Super Cs and maybe the later C's have the front rims that bolt on vs the ones that hold on with the 3 cast pads. although some older farmalls had the later style. (our BN is like that) does anyone know if the SC is gear faster? the Super H's and M's are.

Supers were generally heavier built than straight Cs and had an upgraded steering setup including a larger diameter steering wheel.

We have a '51 which has only Touch Control, no FH or hyd outlet-- I believe they weren't available 'til 1953 or so.

Great little tractor, they run like sewing machines...

Some visual differences the brake and clutch petal are curved or bent on the SC and are straight on the C. There will be a temp gauge for the touch control oil directly in between the touch control levers on the SC, the gas tank is visibly higher on the SC you can see daylight between the tank and the hydraulic assy thing(don't know the correct terminology)

Dont know if you can see it without the tractors side by side but the steering rod angle was changed also, to accommodate the larger steering wheel I think

Early Super C's didn't have fast hitch. That came in '53 I believe.
