1952 Farmall M


Recommended Posts

Is it a super m? If it is should have a c264 cast into the block near the oil filter canister, either that or its one of the handful of straight Ms that got disc brakes the serial # should tell u what it is. Nice looking rig

One of the last M's.  The block does not have 264 cast into it but it does have the big journal crank with a 4" bore.  Disc brakes, but still has the belly pump for hydraulics.

Habit of mine if I see disc brakes I gotta question it?? Not all super m have live hydraulics (SMTAs do) I have a 53 SM that has a belly pump and the battery under the seat, are u building a workhorse or a show tractor?

This tractor belonged to my uncle who passed away a couple of years ago.  The plan is to fix the engine, as it has spun a rod bearing and apply a fresh coat of paint.  Its funny some of the things that IH did around transition years.  My father has an early Super M with belly pump and battery under the gas tank.  Basically the same tractor as this one.
