Hello all, new to the forum. I recently purchased a Ford industrial tractor and was told by the seller that it's a 1987 545A. I started doing some research and now believe I may have either a 340 or 340B. It has a 3 cylinder gas engine and 3 forward/2 reverse trans with hi/lo range. I'll post some pics, one of them being the ID label on the underside of the hood. Any help would be greatly appreciated.[/img:50d52fd861]

It's hard to tell without the photo.

Well, I just tried again to upload some pics and I guess I'm too new of a member and am not allowed to do that. I pretty much determined through other forums that I posted in that this is a Ford 545A that at some point had the original diesel engine swapped out for a Ford 3 cylinder gas engine from the 1970's. Also, the hood is from a 326B Ford ttactor so it's a bit of a Frankenstein tractor evidently.

CU414K is a 340B industrial with diesel engine, independent 540 pto and 6x4 manual reversing transmission

Unit # 6B25B is a build date of February 25, 1986 on day shift

If the tractor had been a 545A the model number would have started with DD4

Look for numbers hand stamped into the clutch housing to the rear of the starter, see if they match the hood numbers, if not list those numbers

I misspoke about the hood being from a 326B. It is from a 340B, but nothing else matches up. It's been a while and I've slept plenty of nights since I messed with all of this info so things got a little foggy.
