I had a 1981 6600 for a while. Bought it cheap, fixed er up and flipped it for good money. I never could figure out the numbers stamped on the block

Serial # A367792 - A at the beginning means the tractor was assembled at the factory in Antwerp Belgium
Engine # E398079 - E at the beginning means that the engine was built for the 5xxx/6xxx series of tractors.

Serial # B375310 - B at the beginning means the tractor was assembled at the factory in Basildon in the UK
Engine # E489852 - E at the beginning means that the engine was built for the 5xxx/6xxx series of tractors.

The rest of all of the numbers are just sequential serial numbers for the tractors and the engines. What are the Unit Numbers and Model Numbers?

EA2114M is a 6600 with a diesel engine, independent 540 rpm PTO and an 8 speed transmission with dual power.

Look at the picture that nashranch posted. Those numbers are on a flat spot on the bell housing just above and rearward from the starter. If you can find those numbers on yours, two of them will be the serial number and the model number that should match the numbers on the plate you posted the picture of. The third number will be a code that will help us tell you the exact date that the tractor was made. Post that third number back here and we can tell you that date.

0E23 - This is a date code for May 23 1980 and is likely the date that the tractor was assembled.

9F6B - This is a date code for June 6 1979 and is likely the date that the transmission was assembled, as it is earlier than the date above. The gaps in the assembly dates between the major components and the tractor itself are not usually that large, but I have seen a few like that.

Thank you very much Sean, my mistake, I shouldve been clearer. These numbers are from the two separate tractors in the photos above.

0E23 is from tractor Serial # B375310

9F6B is from tractor Serial # A367792

Can you tell from the numbers if they are either the 75hp or 79hp
version of the 6600

Tractordata shows two different HP ratings for the 6600, but the higher 79 HP version is listed as only being produced at the plant in So Bernardo do Campo, Brazil. Since yours were assembled at the Antwerp Belgium and Basildon UK assembly plants I would assume that they are both ones that tractordata says had 75 engine HP and 70 PTO HP. Tractordata also claims that they produced the 6600 at the Brazilian plant for a few more years than anywhere else and during those last three years (1982-1984) they increased the engine HP to 85 and the PTO HP to 75.

I don't have much information on the Brazilian made tractors so the 6600's made there might well have had a few more HP, but yours were made at the two European plants and they should have 75HP engines with 70 HP at the PTO.

Thank you once again Sean
Its interesting, weve had the older of these two 6600s since new & in the late 1990s we had the engine overhauled by the Ford dealer as it was breathing heavily & using too much oil.
Prior to starting the rebuild the mechanic checked its power output on the dealers PTO dyno & discovered that even in its quite obviousy diminished condition it was still generating every bit of its rated HP. 🍻
