  • Ford 4500 Diesel Engine Spec Sheet
  • I could use some help in getting a copy of a page from a Ford manual showing that it came from the Ford Company with the brake horsepower listed for a diesel engine Model 4500 tractor. Please email me at winegrower@ymail.com. Thanks. Eric

  • Re: Ford 4500 Diesel Engine Spec Sheet
  • Regarding my research of the Ford 4500 tractor, is there a way to confirm that the Ford ID tag under the hood describes this as my tractor? The Ford ID tag shows Model D5012K, Tractor C393889, Engine 3F16B, Unit 3J05B. I am also trying to confirm using Ford literature what the brake horsepower rating is. So, if information exists just on the brake horsepower rating of the engine, that would be helpful. Thank you.

  • Model D5012K
    D = 4000 chassis built after 4/68.
    50 = Industrial
    1= Diesel
    2= 540 transmission pto
    K = 6X4 manual reversing transmission

    Unit 3J05B
    3 = 1973
    J = September
    05 = 5th day of the month
    B = afternoon shift

    Unit B393889
    C = assembled in USA
    393889 is consistant with a late 1973 serial number

    To verify that the tractor is actually the tractor that is listed on the foil tag under the hood (hoods are easily changed)
    Look on the bell housing just above andbto the rear of the starter. There will be some numbers Hand Stamped there. NOT raised cast numbers.
    You will likely have to scrape some rust, paint and crud off to see them. See photo for example.

  • I'm impressed, Ultradog. You seem to really know your stuff. Thank you for providing this information. The ID label under the hood matches the information stamped near the rear of the engine. So, the information you provided would apply to my tractor. I guess this is consistent with it being a Model 4500.

  • Re: Ford 4500 Diesel Engine Spec Sheet
  • I made a mistake above.
    I wrote the serial # as B393889.
    Then explained that the C meant it was assembled in USA.
    Thick fingers. You wote it as C393889 which of course is correct.
    I also meant to include a link so you can look it up yourself.
    Did you get the backhoe on it?
    Normally units with a backhoe did not have a pto but yours says it has a pto. Just wondering.

  • I'm wondering if this board isvworking properly.
    This will be the third time Ive tried to post that link.
    If it doesn't take this time you'll gave to cut and paste. The photo I posted yesterday didn't take either.
    I had to type it in manually to get the photo to show.

    www.springfieldbiz.com/oaktree/rhcodes_serial.html

    I get it. If you post too slowly you get an error and have to repost. The software strips any links or pictures out.

  • Re: Ford 4500 Diesel Engine Spec Sheet
  • Thank you for correcting that. My tractor has a PTO. So, your designation is correct. No backhoe. The link would be appreciated.

  • Re: Ford 4500 Diesel Engine Spec Sheet
  • According to TractorData.com it looks like it's an industrial tractor.

  • Re: Ford 4500 Diesel Engine Spec Sheet
  • I wish to thank those who have provided help. I need to confirm that the tractor I have is a Model 4500 as I had been told. The serial number plate under the hood states Model D5012K, Engine 3F16B, Unit 3J05B, Tractor C393889. Thanks for your help.

  • Re: Ford 4500 Diesel Engine Spec Sheet
  • Is it similar to this 4400?

  • Tim,
    Yes. The 4400 and 4500 were built on the same platform. There were a few differences but performance specs were the same on both machines.

  • Re: Ford 4500 Diesel Engine Spec Sheet
  • Thanks Dog! I have boxes of brochures and technical documents of stuff from the old FTO in Birmingham/Troy MICH, and the Ford Romeo Plant but stored in my barn at the old farm, six miles away, so not able to scour thru at the moment. I know I have tons of Industrial ones in there and most others are for the Thousand Series Models. I'll be calling you soon - got your number now - but have jury duty right now.
