I picked up a MM U. It has a one piece head on a 4 cylinder gasoline engine, dual fuel tanks. Also it is on 32" rears and it has a standing platform and a seat. The rears are covered by huge fenders. Might this be a standard version of the U? Also I thought tehy were all 2 peice heads.

Sometime in 1947 the U switched from a single block/head to a split block design (pair of 2 cylinder blocks/heads).

If you have 32" tires it should be a red nosed U.(1938-41) They all had small fenders. Are the tires any good? I am looking for a set. Post a picture or serial number.

Jed,
You've got a red nose UTS. Looks pretty straight too. Well worth saving in my opinion. The toughest part will be finding a good set of 32" rubber. Post the serial number off the tag on the RH side of the transmission or from the engine and we should be able to tell you what year you have.

Nice looking UTS you have there, Looks like the grille is with it. That is good as they are getting hard to find.Looks like a nice hood side pannel to. The big fenders are what M M put on all Z & U ag.tractors up to WW 2. clint

Yeah, I've got a '47 UTU narrow two wheel front with the one piece block and one piece head...KEF engine. This tractor has the big "crown" over the wheel fenders, big platform, live hydraulics and power steering. Guess it's kind of an "odd duck" equipped this way. Only thing I wish it had was better seat suspension, like a Knoedler seat that came on later tractors....hard ridin' old jewel.
