Farmall M 6cylinder

Farmall AM differences and serial numbers

Recommended Posts

G'day all.

Could anyone be nice enough to tell me differences there were between the farmall M and AM. And what are the serial numbers vs year model.

Thanks,

Lyndon

AM,s have a square corner tag, a cast iron sump and govenor tube, and I think all had kero manafolds (duel fuel) on the AC248 engine. made from 1950 FBK5402-5900, 1951 FBK5901 - 6800, 1952 FBK6801 - 9921, 1953 FBK9922 - 11122

34HP at 1450 rpm, 5 speed box, tires 6x16" 11x38" or 13.5x32"

540 PTO and 3pl was a optional?

M's made in Australia before 1950 do NOT have the A prefex and the early ones used a mix of US and Aust parts.

Hi Aussie TD40,

I knew there were some casting differences, but didn't know what.

Do u have any other Oz serial numbers, eg, AW6, 7s & A414 etc?

Been looking for years.

To put up the ser.'#'s would be great! To do all of the Geelong mfg. tractors in a "book" form would be even better :rolleyes:

Thanks for that info Jake.

Been looking for those numbers for years.

I see the Poms have put out a book, but I don't know if it has any numbers in it.

An Ozzie book would be terrific, but a huge task.

here are some more numbers for M's

INTERNATIONAL FARMALL M made in Australia.

1948 FBK 901 - 1101

1949 FBK 1801 - 2500

1950 FBK 3851 - 4407

uses a IHC magneto and if it has lights will use a Delco-Remy generator with Lucas lights with no name on flat glass and if battery start a Delco starter is used, Australian cast rear wheels were allways used, 32" mostly.

has a square corner tag with cast iron govener tube and sump, but some of the early ones will have a mix US and AUST parts

With the start of the AM in 1950 all lucas electrics are used

hope this helps some

Jake.

a bit more on Australian made IH tractors.

Casting dates read like this; 19-9-B = NINETEENTH of SEPTEMBER 1949

just remember that IH Australia had the DAY FIRST, opposite to the USA having the month first.

CASTING CODES

A = 1948

B = 1949

C = 1950

D = 1951

E = 1952

F = 1953

G = 1954

H = 1955

I = 1956

J = 1957

K = 1958

L = 1959

M = 1960

N = 1961

O = 1962

P = 1963

I sure could do with some help with this :unsure: where are you Aussie IH tractor fans?

a other thing that different with Australian made M's and W6's is in the grill mesh, in US tractors the mesh is fitted with clips after it was made. On Aussie made grills the mesh is spot welded under the stiffener bars.

INTERNATIONAL AW7 DIESEL TRACTOR MADE IN AUSTRALIA

1957 to 1960

sorry I do not have numbers for AW7 diesels, can anyone help?

Jake.

AW-7 Kero & AW-7 Diesel almost certainly shared common serial numbering.

The kerosene version was a rarity so the serial number range suggests the diesel was included.

P.S. The second build year for the AW-6 should read 1949 not 1959 (a typo) :)
