    Does it have a water pump??/the original SA had thermo sihpon system without a water pump...as a result the radiator was "lower" than the later 100/130/140 units with water pumps...a pic of the engine from the left side would be very helpful, as well as one without the engine shroud, showing the radiator. As you may be aware the SA came with a 113 ci engine, the later units with water pumps bumped up to 123ci. It will say what the ci is on the right side of the engine above/just behind the govenor unit on the block...BobG in VA

    Engine model (displacement) is stamped on a machined boss on the block along with the engine serial number. IIRC it will be on the upper front of the RH side of the block above the distributer. The proper engine for a Super A should be a C113 or if a very late Super A it may be a C123. A block with an engine oil dipstick would be a later engine than the tractor chassis. A Super A should have oil level petcocks in the oilpan.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    So that is what those things were. As a kid I never did understand what they were!

    The top petcock is 'full' and the bottom one is add a quart. IF oil doesn't come out the bottom one DO NOT START.

    yep makes sense, but as a kid, I never could figure out what they were for. 50 years later, now I know I never though to ask

    My super A is made up of four tractors. A 130,140, and two Super A's. The original Super A blocks are tough to find without cracks. I magnafluxed ever part on mine and had it remanufactured. Farmall Super A, 130, 140 hybrid engine - YouTube
