I bought a farmall M to restore i was told it was a 1941 but i am not sure and i can not make sense out of any of the numbers. I took pictures of everything can someone please help me figure out all the numbers and letters so i know more about this tractor and what the year is? I was told it was a combine too and it seems to have the mounts for one

What does the serial number tag have on it? I suspect its a cotton harvester, not a combine.

This is where serial number is if it still has tag.

You probably have to find what year it is by the date codes, casted into the castings, like 6-10-M, means June 10th 1941

What's the formula to get the year 41 out of the letter "M"?

49098 may be all the serial numbers. That would be built the last month of 41. J code cast parts would be cast in 1940. If several or most are J code that makes it doubtful on serial number and castings matching. even if cast in the last month of 1940 that serial number puts them around a year apart. If original the engine may have the same serial number as the chassis around that time period. Should have several K codes with that serial number and very few if any J codes.

The engine says FBK- 23659 rightabove the distributer its pretty warn down but right underneath that number it almost looks like there id a /1. Does it matter if all the cast dates are different but they all have J? Also is it possible that it was bought in 1940 as a 1941? By the way thank you everyone for your help i really appreciate it.
