It will be a '63 or '64 made in England. Serial # is stamped on block above injection pump, should have FL on the head above that. '63 & '64 North American models of that tractor where called Ford 5000 Super Major and your color cream/gray hood and fenders and Blue.... In the rest of the world they where a Fordson Super Major with blue hood, white fenders...To start make sure the
injection pump fuel shut off control cable knob is pushed in. If you can find a key to fit it (I use a Toyota a key that came with mine) turn key till the gen light comes on, then push the lever down that's on the left that goes to the starter. In a few seconds it will fire up and you will have big smile on your face!

Thank you for the much-needed information everything was clear except for the part about the injection pump control knob but I do believe as a diesel that's what shuts it off as well the key is basically for the glow plug is my correct?

They're originally a 12 volt system, it's common to see alternator upgrade.

The key sends power to the starter, no glow plugs on the Majors. Hope you can get the rear tires repaired.

So if I have the injector fuel delivery Cable in the correct position if I had to I could actually short the starter? You also forgot to tell me to make sure it's in neutral when I do this...lol. as far as the tires I'm having a big problem finding tires for it the 14 9x38 but apparently there's a place near the Florida border that has a set of used ones about 4 hours away for a decent price.

Yes the fuel shut off cable in right position and short starter and push starter lever, I think lol. And you should be sitting the seat with clutch the pedal depressed also when starting lol!

Didn't realize you had 38" rims, 30x16.9 are the common size for North American models.

http://www.tractordata.com/farm-tractors/006/4/4/6440-ford-5000-diesel.html

I noticed that when I looked at the above site the rear tires on this are very large and almost hit the fenders it would probably be a better looking tractor with 30 inch rims and the matching tires not to mention cheaper. I wonder if this tractor was retrofitted by Ford or by the customer we may never know. So much for being all original....

Would you please send me some pictures of your tractor also I would like if you could to explain to me what some of the controls are on the left and right side and as you're sitting in the seat there are so many Libras and bars I have no idea. Also I want to start this tractor but I have no key and I'm not sure how to start it without a key. It looks as though somebody has put an alternator on this tractor and switch it over to 12 volt from its original 6 volt. That too is a little bit confusing.

I got this tractor off my uncle, he bought it new, it has done a terrific amount of work, I have had it for over forty years.
Amongst other things, after the dozers went through, he cleared over 4000 acres with this machine
Sometimes getting up to four punctures a day and that is with cover tires
This was in the sixtys
Being a farmer and not to clued, maintenance was close to zero
The fuel pump seized up twice to my knowledge, lack of oil
The front axle is not standard, it came off a international crane, the original axle housing broke
The engine is now us, needs rebuilding.
Its been a wonderful machine
Standard tires in Australia are 18.4 28
12v is standard
The long lever by your left foot is to engage the PTO and hydraulics if I remember correctly
hydraulics are live
The PTO is then engaged and disengaged by the lever at the rear but if the lever by your left foot Is not engaged the PTO will not drive
The lever by your left knee is the starter
cant get the photo to load, its on there but isnt loading

Those are the wrong rear wheels on it, they should be white and dished different.
I will have to look for the blade, haven’t seen it in a while

the frame is attached to the three point linkage.
to lift the blade, you lift the three point linkage.

Wow there's a whole lot of history there with that boy. Looks like he could use a full restore as well. I like the way that tire fits with that Fender where you can still get a fist in between there. My tire is way too tight on the fender. The one thing I like about the tractor that I have is all the sheet metal I don't think there's one dent anywhere. I just really don't have much use for a tractor I just would love to do the work and restore it and I can use it to drag my driveway.

You could try tractor wreckers for 30 inch rims.
