8228DE = PU-8 = U-6 & UD-6 Power Units,
= PU-17 = IU-6 & IUD-6 Tractor-Engine-Over-Axle-Unit,
= TC-23 = T-6 & TD-6 Crawler Tractor,
= TC-28 = Farmall M, MV, MD & MDV Tractors,
= TC-33 = O-6, OS-6, ODS-6, W-6 & WD-6 Tractors,
= TC-34 = I-6 & ID-6 Tractors.

The engine block should have a serial number hand stamped into a machined surface just below the head and behind the injection pump. Engine number would be stamped like this:

FDBKM######## = Farmall MD = TC-28,
FDBKVM######## = Farmall MDV = TC-28,
IDBKM######## = International ID-6 = TC-34,
IUDBKM######## = International IU-6 = PU-17,
OBKSM######## = McCormick ODS-6 = TC-33,
TDBKM######## = International TD-6 = TC-23,
UDBKM######## = International UD-6 = PU-8.

Hope this helps you out and if I can help anyone else just ask.

So just to confirm , a manual for a u d 6 will suit my engine ? I didnít get to it today to check for the hand stamped serial no .
Also does anyone know the correct manual I should be looking for to suit the roller itself ?

"...With the third valve in the head on each cylinder..."

I do not see a third valve in each cylinder. Remember this is a gas start - Diesel run engine. There will be a spark plug hole (probably the one on top) and the injector hole (probably the one on the bottom) along with the intake and exhaust valves for each cylinder.

The third valve opens to decrease cylinder pressure for starting on gas. The lever on the left side of a gas start diesel engines dash board not only decompresses the engine but opens a butterfly on the gas start system to allow the small carb on the right to feed the engine. It also opens the ground so the mag or distributor can be operational. I'm sure the lever does some other items as well be haven't looked at them in a few years.

The serial number on the block should give you the answer to this question. All SHOULD be the same but you just never know.

There is no spark plug hole into the combustion chamber. The spark plug is in a separate chamber opened up by the starting valve, & closed off when running on diesel. The smaller hole in the pic below the 2 valves is the starting valve seat. Slanted hole on top is the injector.

You got it my friend. Your best bet for a parts manual would be the PU-8. Currently one for auction at:
https://bid.beckortauctions.com/view...alog/id/17405/

page 2 item # 176 for $10-12

the B suffix merely represents the second revision of the PU-8 manual.
