MF 65

Can anyone interpret the date codes on a MF 65?

The serial no. is 541580 which puts it at 1961 according to several websites

There is a code J 24 K on the transmission housing which l am guessing is a casting date, is anybody able to enlighten me on this because I can’t find anything on “google “.

Can’t help myself, I am afraid, but I contacted, and joined, FOFH about my 65, and using the serial number they gave me the exact date it was built. Even down to the shift!

might be worth an email?
