Default 1938 Case R

Hi I have a 1938 Case R that has an older restore. Thinking it will be the next project would anyone happen to have an original seat bracket for it and a starter filler plate for the Waukesha? It has a starter on it but I donít think it was originally equipped and it starts second pull of the crank. Thank you for any help

It is a 1939 model with the sunburst grill one of only 500 made in 1939.Some of them had fully rounded fenders and some had the ones like your tractor has.Early ones had a Splitdorf magneto and later ones used a Case magneto later on a electric starter conversion was used for starting.The R came on steel or rubber.From what i know most of the R's ended up in Western Canada

Sorry I meant to put 39 the serial number starts with 42. This one had a homemade starter switch and battery box both very crude. The guy I bought it from put the starter on it as he was in his 80s but didn’t have the filler anymore so it was definitely a hand start. Do you know of any seat brackets it is also a homemade unit on this one.

The seat bracket should be a piece of angle iron.With the seats on the R their were two different ones used in 39/40 one was a flat pan seat the other was the more rounded pan seat wich was also used on other tractors in the mid to late 1930's and later my guess is seats and fender styles were optional at the end of production of the model R?
