Probably. Since in this case, 157 841 was the starting S/N for 1550's. if had been more of a spread, you couldn't be sure since all models were serialized together. Xxx xx1 might be a 1850 and xxx xx2 could be a 1650. But I think they were usually in bunches. Others will chime in, hopefully.

502 are the nubers for the transission set up. Those 3 point arms were available. I know we got a few tractors with those on by mistake.

Like RP said gauges came on the later ones. There were a lot of options for the 1550 models from dry air cleaners to pan type seats More questions post a phone number. J.
