I know it is a International Harvestor What I am not sure of is it a hydro 84 ?? and what the serial number is.
That is why I asked if the serial number can be found by the engine number. Stamped on right side of block. 246 DT20123486
With the number it would be easier to talk issues and find the correct fix and parts

With out the s/n of the tractor, there is no way to come up with the correct dates. The engine number does not help.
