This book covers tractors between 1938-1960.

This book lists the specifications, tolerances and adjustments along with other reference data for a large range of older tractors. It is not a complete workshop manual, but it provides all the details of the tolerances allowed such as camshaft end float, big end bearing clearance, sleeve height above face of block, valve clearances, governed engine speeds, plug gap, timing, bolt torque settings for bearing caps, heads, etc., crown wheel and pinion backlash, bearing pre-loads, oil types and change periods.

Also listed are some other general tractor information such as tyre sizes, speeds, years of production, and serial number lists. This is not a workshop manual, but it provides much of the information you can get from a workshop manual on one page, in an easy to find condensed form.
