Morning,

Ive recently bought a Dexta that is in need of a bit of work but it seems a bit of a bittsa and im wondering if one of you knowledgeable people can steer me in the right direction. The tin work is an assortment and the wings aren't even Fordson but the Serial number seems to indicate its a Dexta (from guide on Tractor Data) but it has the Super Dexta pump and some of the hydraulics ?

Serial No: 09C732617

Casting No's: Gearbox: 957E 7005 also: P21H ?
Engine: 37111310 there is also a: L272 and at the bottom back: GKN1372 1C

Im afraid ive not been able to locate the clutch, hydraulic top that people talk about, might need further investigation.
Left hand trumpet looks like it has: 957E 4013B

Any help appreciated.

Georgey48,

Hopefully the following will help you in identifying the year of Dexta you have.
From my information that I have your tractor serial number dates it to Jan 1963.
The gearbox casting code dates from Dec 21st 1962.
You need to get the casting codes from the rear trumpets as in below photos to date them. These are the same as your gearbox casting code which will start with a letter and be either a single or double number followed by a letter. If you can get me them I will date them for you. I am unsure about your engine but you find with many tractors these have been replaced over the years as mine has. My tractor is a very early Dexta but the engine dates to 1965.

Georgey48,

Your trumpets date from Oct 4th and 18th 1962. Looks like you have a genuine Dexta and not a bitser as all the casting codes date from late 1962 and serial number from Jan 1963. As I said earlier I wouldnt worry about the engine as many were replaced.

Regards
Charlie.

Hi Georgey48,
What is your colour scheme going to be and what year is the engine and also engine number?
