I was out surfing and found this:

JULIAN DATE SYSTEM

#917.254810 917 = source. 254820 = model

serial number 0521B01538
052 represents the day of year
1 last digit of year
B plant code
1538 number of unit made

 

So the second FF tractor I bought was made on the 52nd day of 1981 (Feb 21, 1981) and was unit # 1538. The first FF was made on the 153rd day of 1981 (June 2, 1981) and was unit # 2731.

Cool stuff.

Just looked up the GTV, and it's serial reads 0282S03265. So it is a 1982, born on Jan. 28th.

So that is like giving our date of birth, leaving the word for the month out, and now to a number. Makes since to me.

So instead of mine being 30 July 1940 it is now 07301940.

According to the Sears date code, that would be 2120, 212th day of 1940!

What ever, that's my number. Just what I needed today. More numbers assigned to me-as if I didn't have enough.
