So the regulars were everything from almost white to black with all hues, tints, and shades in between. MOST OF THE CASTINGS, HAVE DA AT THE END OF THE CASTING #. I NEED-A MANUAL--PICTURES, OF THE THROTTLE LINKAGE, FROM THE STEERING WHEEL TO THE CARBURATOR. in 1951 my father bought my brothers regular for me so ihave some knowledge of the farmall. When I was 13 yr old I was crank starting our old Farmall Regular, and i spun it fast enough that the impulse got kicked up and I didn't know it.. I am 61 my dad was born in nov1914 My Granddad bought his first tractor new in 1929 it was a regular farmall I have heard dad tell about going on the other side of town about a mile & ahalf to his uncle's farm to plow proabley a direct hitch 3 disc plow.I have personnally seen the blue regular, and it has been explained as weathering of the grey paint supplied by the Du Pont people circa 1914-1917. The next turn on the crank was a devastating blow to my mouth from the crank handle resulting in splintering and shattering my 2 front teeth up into the roof of my mouth.. John A Farmall Regular '1920's vintage' was our first tractor in 1942. We had mounted lister, cultivator and converted from steel to rubber how ever we had steel also. Granddad traded this tractor in 1939 for a model H.The Nebraska test is deceptive, because the earliest Farmall had a 1" carburetor opening. The carb and manifold were different, but I believe that the developed horsepower was very similar for both tractors after the carb change.I do not believe that IHC ever called this tractor "Regular." Everybody else did, of course.
The International data book I have indicates 402 tractors built before 1928 with housing 1556-DC, mines DB, the same book says the front bolster 1556-DD before August 1928, mines DC, I need help...My father, later bought a newer F-20 and parted out both the Farmall and older F-20. An earlier post said the open steering box is a dead givaway.I still have a few part such as engine canopy and aircleaner assembly.there was no paint code for regulars. There were hundreds of suppliers, and no specs for paint on those ships other than grey . THANKS, EARL CALLENDER, NEW BERN, NORTH father bought a farmall regular in 1949 i was 14 years old so i got to work it a lot. Are their any letters in the serial number that will verify the type of tractor?You'd hear this; "Well, she ain't a F-20, she's jist a reg'ler Farmall." I have some old catalogs from parts suppliers, and they refer to the tractor as "Regular." Still, I have only seen "the original Farmall" or "the Farmall" in International sales brochures or advertisements in farm magazines from the 30s.
This tractor and the F-20 were so common that many modifications were made to them.
To be more accurate I should say I have the frame rear end and front end with bad cut-down wheels front and back I need everything else.
