I have a Fordson Super Major/5000 that I am restoring. I believe it is a 1963. Where should the serial number be located. I have looked everywhere with no luck. Thanks for the help

Raise the hood, look up around the battery box.

Lift up righthand side hood. Look at the front side of the block where it joins the cylinder head.

Flat area about 2 inch long x 1/2 inch deep

Serial number stamped into the face

you may have to clean the dirt to read it


post the number on here and I will date your tractor for you.

If you want the date of build, post the casting numbers off the block; gearbox & rear axle.

KDF68 is spot on ! On a Super the serial number will be found at the right front side of the block where it joins the cylinder head, this will be a raised flat surface. This is not the case with the regular Major nor the Power.

Thanks for the help. I was unsure if the serial number located on the motor was just the number for the motor or for the entire tractor. Thanks for clarifying.

Not the case with my Super Major,I have the flat area without numbers, I suspect it is down near the starter motor somewhere,something to do.
