the serial number on my tractor starts with NAA...so is it a jubilee or an NAA... and whats the difference!
the naa is on the bell housing, near the starter.. and the shifter is on the right. so is that bad, and what does it mean when the serial # is on the bell housing...thanksserial #'s for '53 (jubilee) and '54 will both start with NAA. I have a Jubilee and the serial # starts out NAA. Was your NAA # on the engine or the trans bellhousing? Were you lucky enough to get a sherman trans with it? This may help when bailing. Trans shifter would be on your left sitting on the tractor just behind the starter.
yeah...its just a four speed... i would also like to have a few lower gears...so then mine is 1952 since the numbers are on the bell housing? oh and thanks for all your help!Early production #'s on the 1953 jubilee were on the engine. Started the production run in 1952. If no sherman or hupp trans then it's just a standard 4 speed which is ok but I prefer the extra speeds in the sherman.
I think it would be neat and proud to be the owner of a Jubilee..Only 77,747 made.Post your full sn and we can tell you if it is the 53 or 54 model.. though not much difference. betweent he early and late ones pretty much only a nose medalion and a cultch bushing/bearing.. etc.
well thanks for everyones help. i am glad to know what it is! i tried to upload a pic of the nose badge to find out if it is the right one,but it would'nt let me. so i just changed my profile pic to the nose badge that is on my tractor...see what you thinkNAA9602 would be a 'true' Golden Jubilee.
A 1953 model NAA, actually built in 1953. ALL 1953 model NAA's were known as Golden Jubilees (for the golden anniversary of the Ford Motor Company).
From Smith's Site..well thanks for everyones help. i am glad to know what it is! i tried to upload a pic of the nose badge to find out if it is the right one,but it would'nt let me. so i just changed my profile pic to the nose badge that is on my tractor...see what you think
your 100% right i over looked the numbers.. the paint was thick and couldnt read the numbers...anyways the numbers are NAA96025, so the badge does match the tractor? wish i would have seen it the first time!Just to cornfuse thing further. The emblem you have is from a '54 and the #'s you posted should be on the engine. My jubs' # are 13619 and they are on the engine block. Are you sure you didn't miss any #s? Did you check the top on the radiator. There are other production # you can also check.
And YES for those who are interested my Jub is still yellow.
