FBK 23659 is the engine serial (likely a x1(most common) under). The casting dates will vary some(usually with in about a month or two, since some parts needed more time for curing and machining. If the month is Dec (or really late Nov) it would have been cast in 40(J cast code) and assembled and marked a 41. There may be a mix of cast codes(say J's on larger parts and K on smaller) if made with in the first months of 1941.

23659 was used in a November built 40 model tractor and the chassis number was probably the same or very little difference when built. J codes would fit. If the other number posted is on the clutch housing some parts may not be original.

Looked at some wrote down. Lot of the early ones no longer have the original engine block. Closest original I noticed with a quick look is serial 21676 on both engine and chassis. Casting dates are when the casting was made not the date tractor was built. Castings can very from several months to close to tractor build but if after serial number date you can figure one was replaced sometime. Tractor could be a 40 model purchased in 41.

The final drive, torque tube, and engine were all cast in November 1941
