Been working down here in the deep south for quite some time, every now and then I just drive around after work to see what is setting around, this is my latest find, and it is obviously wearing the wrong badge ( 404 ) Can anyone identify the proper size? 424, 454, 444, 414,?? or what?
Not sure what is on it, I started to right that info down but forgot to, I do remember a number casted in the block under #4 plug, seems like it was C-146 or C-134 something like that, don't kn ow if that helps.
Ya know, I'm agreeing with David. It has the right front axle, hydrostatic steering, a two speed tranny(not T/A), three point hitch,
and if it had the c-134 engine. :? Serial tag is in the right place under the gas tank, best I remember my great uncles, for a 404 utility.
I drilled a lot of post holes with his until Grandad bought his 530 J.D. 'Course that's been 40 years ago now.
I personally don't feel it is a. 404, and the reason being is this.... Sitting on this tractor- you will find the starter is on the left side under the carb, and it is a front mount starter, now go to tractordata.com and look at a. 404 and look at the photos....it shows the 404 has a right side starter and is a rear mount, "starter comes in from behind bellhousing". Also the hydraulic lines don't look right to me. This is just things I have noticed, also the hood on this tractor I think is to long.
Just got up from a 12 hour drive home, so I'm still a little groggy. One thing I noticed about the hood is on the right side it has some small "hinges"? made under the lower edge as though it had some kind of side curtain on it, don't know if that helps identify that part or not. And yes the doglegs appear a little tall to me, another thing I noticed is the grill screen continues up between the headlights, and the hood cannot be shifted forward or backwards due to the radiator cap access hole ligning up, I somewhat feel it is a bits and pieces tractor, but really can't figure out the main tractor section.
