 How to locate serial number on old IH Farmal

My uncle was given an old International Harvester Super A Farmal tractor that he would like to restore, but he can't find a serial number. The only number we found was a casting number down below the steering wheel (3543-5 3R1). If I have done my homework correctly, I understand the R in the casting number to represent the year 1949. Does anyone know if that is correct and can you tell us where to search for the serial number? Thanks! DC

 How to locate serial number on old IH Farmal

I had an "A" once, it seems that the SN plate was on the seat support bracket just above the rear housing, but I am working from a somewhat distant memory.
Almost every part number from IH ended with a R or R91, you maybe be confuaing the part number with the casting code. Yes every year's casting code started with a different letter, I'd have to look it up, I can't remember off hand what the code letter was for that year.
Frank.

OK, just looked up the info in my "Old Farmall" book.
The casting code for 1949 is S.
Serial numbers of Super A's produced in 1949 range from
268196 - 281268.

Frank.
