Like train spotting only shorter? What do you folks think of these non conformist numbers? A bit earlier than early production?

Don't laugh, it will just incourage them.
What do you think of the number Jeff? A '57? A few hundred below where the sites I found serial numbers even start for 202's. Which is 301,100 or so?

Just a stupid question but is there a difference between the MHF202 and the MF202? I know that in my I&T service manual the picture of the MHF202 does look different from my MF202.

What is a monocolour? Half a binocular? We call that a telescope in pirate circles around New England....
Now who said this one was mine Sam? It might be a snapshot of one in a MHF museum...or something like that.... just because there's a picture of a rusty, greasey, dirt encrusted dead horse sinking into the ground doesn't mean I already bought it.... OK that is what usually happens... and is going to happen... and already happened....but.... that's not fair....

Actually I think that is a very intelligent question Inno, you get an 'A' for the day.
I have seen workbulls with the cast steel grills, and have an industrial 135, but these usually have loaders all their lives, and the hood and grills last as long as the owner's patience with them. So what's on the cover of the manual? This one has the TO35 grill ...or- what's left of it...

What's on the cover? Mostly text and some graphics.
Who said anything about the cover? Details Tony, details!

But seriously, I'll have to look at the page. The manual covers the TO35, the MF202, the MHF202, the 50........well a whole bunch of models with very little detail. It's the Readers Digest condensed version of a real service manual. I think the MHF202 pictured is a cutaway of one side of it. Seems to me that the front end has some curve to it vertically as opposed to my MF202 which is has very straight lines.

I would have to guess that it's a MHF202, looks like the heavier front end on it.
I found other pictures online of a MHF202 that had that same badge. Looks big and bad! Smile

It does have a 55, 56, or early 57 hood.
