RE:tractor design faults
Styled Red Pacemaker and 25 /40 Spark Plug removal on number 3 cylinder.

On all the unstyled "U" frames all  four spark plugs were very easy to get at for maintenance, come 1938 and the "styling to sell from the design shop" made life difficult for getting at number 3 spark plug when they put the new round air cleaner on that side of the engine.

Most defianetly one of those cases when the design engineer never even thought or cared about the driver / mechanic working on it later.
