Ive read that one way to tell a 2000 from a 4000 is the back end, specifically where the top link mount is on the differential case. I dont really recall anything specific about the 4000 that was once in the family, but here is the back end of my 2000. On the illegable serial # with only the D readable, makes me wonder if this tractor was originally a diesel?

That is the rear axle of a 2000, or 600/601 series. The 800/801/4000 rear axles had a larger differential housing with the area around the top link ears recessed so that the geometry of the top link relative to the lower arms remained the same.

The D at the end of the model number means that it was a diesel originally, which on a 2000/601/600 series would have been a 144 ci engine.

I don't know for sure about yours, but my later Ford has the date
of manufacture stamped into the top of the flange for the rear end as shown below:

I'm pretty sure that is the date that the rear axle was assembled, not the tractor, but the tractor was usually assembled a few weeks to a few months later.

Scraped paint from that spot today, no numbers there. Looks like theres some numbers on the left side axle housing. Might wire-wheel that tomorrow and see what it has to say. Starts great and the 3-point stays up so thats a big plus.

Hello Sean , With the exception that the 5 speed was not used in the 3 cylinder tractors the rest of
your statement is completely incorrect , 4 cylinder tractors were Built the ENTIRE year of 1965
wether you like it or not it is a plain and simple fact verified by Ford serial numbers . You have
tried to deny this for years , I had posted serial lists years ago here on this site and I still own 5
1965 4 cylinder tractors with serial numbers from January to November 1965 in both LD Industrial
and HD Industrial and AG tractors and yes they were still making 5 speed live pto transmissions
the regular 5 speed was dropped . Tony

Hello Racsan , No great mystery here the tractor was originally a diesel converted to gas , the
serial number is corroded because diesel batteries and their boxes were larger than gas when the
acid leaked from the battery it dripped right on the serial number . Your serial number is still
partially visible in the corrosion look at your picture you can see the digits before the -D , a better
picture enlarged and you can probably see them better . More than likely your tractor is a five
speed with live pto . With the clutch pedal halfway down the implement will still operate all the way
down and it will stop obviously all the way both tractor and implement will be driven . The casting
date on the rear axle center housing is 1963 , did you locate the numbers on the top of the
radiator right next to the radiator cap ? If it still has the original radiator . Tony
