Haven't had a chance to play with it, but will as soon as we get some dry weather.

The numbers I posted were the actual production numbers after "Decoding" the serial number. Since they all started at 101 you just subtract that to get the actual production number...

Here's a sheet I found that explains how to read the serial numbers from 1973+

Close, but you really only subtract 100. Remember the first production tractor is #101 so 101-100=1.

I know that at first glance you wold think that you subtract the whole 101, but when you take a closer look you will see that the correct number to subtract is 100.

I was a programmer back in the old mainframe days when COBOL, RPG and Assembler Language were the rule, and that was something that we had to be very careful of.
