The engine number is no identification of the tractor as the engine fitted to each tractor as they progressed along the production line were not consecutive, you may have had engine 1234 on one and 1257 on the next, it's the serial number that is the tractor's identification. If this number is not on the front corner look again behind the side panel on the top of the same front frame rear of the radiator, in the area just forward of where the bolt in the V section, sometimes if there had been a problem with the front end of the tractor it might have been swapped over with a frame from a 950, there were steering arm problems with 900's and changing the frame and axle and steering bars was the easiest fix. If you can't find anything then we can't really help you other than saying that your tractor was built sometime during 1958. I don't know what the procedures are in Norway to re-register a vehicle to be road legal but here in the UK if you have no proof of the identity of a vehicle you have to register it with a prefix letter Q for which you are charged a fee but if you can prove the age you can obtain an 'age related' registration number plate.

Don't give up just yet, there may be ways around it, I don't know if you have a similar system in Norway but here we can go through the Club to obtain a registration, I'm not sure how without a vehicle serial number but not beyond possibility.

990 front frame will not fit but one from a 950 will but you will still have the same issue in registering it, it would be the same as joining two halves of a car together, what is known here as 'cut and shut', unless you have any official written proof of the tractors original registration showing that or the serial number you will not be able to register it, you might have to have the tractor inspected by your vehicle registration authority and be given a new serial number which they would stamp in the frame on the tractor, saying this again not knowing your Norwegian registration Laws and procedures.

Iv just spoken to a very knowledgable person who was working at David brown when the 900 and pre implematic 950s were being produced.

He advised me of the following.

There is no number stamped on the frame of the tractor and there was no plate on the cross box. The 900 ID plate was on the dash panel like the 25/30s. If the plate is missing it may no longer have any number at all.

He tells me the number stamped into the chassis and the brass plate on the cross box didn't appear until the 950 implematic was produced.

I didn't know the answer to this topic so I kept quiet!! This information has come from a chap who was there when it was all happening so it must be correct!!!

Thanks for that. It explains why there is no number on my 900. I stripped every inch of paint off the front bolster looking for it, following the advise of an "Expert" here. Luckily, no registration, or plates are required for "implements of husbandry" here.

As said before, I also don't know how it works in Norway, but can't you buy an identification plate in the UK?
They pop up on eBay now and then.

Or hit a identification number in the main frame yourself :-)
Know a chap in NL who has used his telephone number for that..
But we do not have any registration papers, just need a number for insurrance.

Scrapping a good 900 would be a shame :cry: :cry:

serial numbers

Post by philipday » Mon Feb 09, 2015 2:41 pm

Not that it will help you,
but I have 2 pre-implematic 950's both with documents and the serial number is stamped on both on the top of the front extension pieces as in the picture shown earlier in this topic.

Injector?? And its alot of strange noises from the tractor hehe..

The 4 cylinder 880 Implematic and both 950 pre-Implematic and Implematic engines will, together with the complete engine chassis and clutch/flywheel assembly will bolt straight on.
