  • Tractor Identification
  • I have recently purchased my FIRST tractor! It is an old Ford (gas) and has a Ford loader mounted on it. Has power steering, 3 pt. hitch and PTO. It is 2 wheel drive. And that is about all I know about it. It has no sheet metal, so no ID plate came with it. The guy could only tell me he thought it was a Ford Industrial. I was just able to remove some paint from a spot that some sites said serial numbers for some Fords are located. While they are hard to read, I believe I see 1305 and 4441 stamped there. Can anyone tell me what those numbers mean?

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • is there an id plate on the loader and/or loader bucket? also provide part numbers and date codes from transmission, hydraulic compartment and rear axle,engine and any other you can find. these will help identify tractor model and year built. Don (MI)

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • Loader ID plate says the serial is 5384. It's a Ford I9-201 (or 19?)

    CONN 6015G (or O or C) on the engine block

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • mike, conn prefix indicates that engine was built in 1960. the tractor is not a 1801 heavy duty industrial, it does not have a frame on tractor, my 1963 ford model 4140 heavy duty industrial has a heavy frame and cast iron radiator shell. it has a model 712 front loader. Don (mi)

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • Don, thanks for the input! What do you mean "it does not have a frame on tractor"?

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • That means that when you look at the side of your tractor you don't see a solid frame. The engine/oil pan/transmission serve as the frame...

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • Yes, Ford used the letter "I" for the numeral "1" on serial numbers and implement numbers, thus I9-20I is the model number. We have many loader manuals but not that one...here is the LINK to the 19-101 loader...

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • It's a light industrial 4000 as other have said. Would have looked like my 4000. You rims have been replaced with earlier style hat rims probably off an 8n/NAA.

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • How do I tell if mine is a 2000, 4000, etc.? The only thing I can add is that after removing the air cleaner, and scrubbing better, the 1305 now looks to be 21305, and it actually looks like the "2" and the "5" were stamped over something else! The 4441 still appears to be the same. The only other number I see in that area is a "4" turned perpendicular to the other numbers, about 2" closer to the engine block.

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • It is possible to be a 2000 instead of a 4000.if you could take a photo of the rear brakes where the toplink is that would help tell which one it is. Also on the lower section of your engine block on both sides there will be a production code and casting code. Post those numbers will help.

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • It's a light industrial of one sort or another. Note the extra girth to the radius rod and larger (5/8") steering cylinder rod.
    I can't say beyond that.

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • First I thought Ford 1801 or 1841, but it looks more like a 600 or 800 series lower frame. You can google the different ones on Tractor Data. Or if you can find John Smiths Site. Look under Links here...

  • Re: Tractor Identification
  • It appears to be a 4000 Industrial with 4 speed transmission. 63-64 vintage. The Power Steering is a plus. SoS
