Would be easier to date the tractor by it's serial number? Block casting number will not help.

My reason for trying to find the date of the engine block was to see if the engine had been swapped in its lifetime. It would have given me full authenticity of the vehicle.
Thanks anyway.

Engine block should be stamped with model number and s/n . Do you have those numbers? I seriously doubt that this engine has ever been replaced.
