  • 1953 3 SPEED TRANNY
  • I BOUGHT A 53 JUBILEE THAT HAS A 3 SPEED, EVERYTHING I READ SAYS THEY CAME WITH A 4 SPEED. ON THE RIGHT SIDE IT SAYS NAA700 (I THINK) IN THE CAST STAMPING. I'M NOT SEEING ANY EXTRA LEVER THAT WOULD MAKE IT A SHERMAN. ANY HELP APPRECIATED.

    THANK YOU

    KEVIN

  • First, very doubtful you have a hybrid mutt -the NAA had a 134 CID OHV engine and the rest of the N's had a 120 CID Flat Head engine and they don't interchange. NAA 700 isn't a serial number. Where exactly are you seeing that? Simply saying "on the casting stamp" means nothing -what casting? Castings were not stamped -they'd be as cast raised or cast recessed characters and numbers. All NAA serial numbers were on the LH side as marked - see below. Shermans were aux dealer options, so don't look for any markings, there were none. We need to see more of the tractor -details of dash, engine, markings, trans shifter - basically the entire tractor. Do you know how to post pictures? If not, email them to me as attachments in jpg format and I can post them. More info on this LINK below.

    The serial numbers on the first 22,238 NAA models were stamped on the left front
    of the engine block just below the head as shown in the photo below.

    FORD TRACTOR – NAA/JUBILEE –EARLY SERIAL NUMBER LOCATION:


    Serial number location on later NAA models was on the left side of the transmission case just below the flat above the starter bulge as shown in the photo below.

  • OKAY, YOU ARE VERY KIND AND HELPED ME A TON, THANK YOU. IT IS A 1953 NAA WITH A 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION. 4 GEAR IS BETWEEN 1ST AND REVERSE, BECAUSE OF 67 YEARS OF CRUD (EVEN AFTER CLEANING) I STILL CANNOT SEE THE NUMBER 4 BUT THE SHIFTER DOES GO INTO ALL THE GEARS. THANK YOU AGAIN.

  • I was just going to say that you probably have a 4 speed. That happens all the time, folks can't see the 4, but its there. So don't feel bad. My Jubilee came with a Sherman over under, but I did not know what it was until I visited this site. It was just a hole in the left side of the case. The shifter was missing. I got a shifter from RedRock and it works great.

  • Does the transmission lever and top cover look like the one in this Ebay ad? If so, your tractor does have a 4-speed transmission.

  • All NAA tractors, including 1953 "Jubilee" models, were originally equipped with the same 4-speed (4 forward and 1 reverse gears) constant-mesh transmissions though some were equipped with an additional 3 speed Sherman auxiliary transmission.

  • THANK YOU DEAN AND I UNDERSTAND THAT WHICH IS WHY I AM CONFUSED. MINE IS A 53, IT IS A 3-SPEED AND IT DOES HAVE NAA ON THE SIDE OF THE CASE. DID THE SHERMAN TRANNY'S HAVE THE NAA ON THE SIDE?

  • The Sherman transmission is inside the bell housing and is not visible externally.

    I suppose it's possible that someone could have cobbled a 9N or 2N 3 speed sliding-gear transmission into an NAA.
