PowerKing56 - that tractor is not a Jaques Mighty Mite- it’s a Jaques Farm King, which is much rarer than the Mighty Mite.
The Farm Kings shared a lot of parts with the Mighty Mites, but were different: the U Channel of the frame has the smooth part facing out. (Whereas the Might Mites had the ends of the U facing out.).
The Farm Kings shipped with the Crosley engine and usually a Borg Warner T92 transmission.
The hood on the Farm King is also very distinctive – more of an elongated bubble shape- whereas the Mighty Mites have a very distinctive angular hood.
To determine tractor manufacture date: look at the engine plate (if it’s the original engine) or look at the transmission plate. On the left side of transmission, just below cover plate you will find casting date of the transmission in: month, day, year. If you add 2 months to that date you should come up with approx. manufacture date of the tractor.
