A 4000 with British 6 bolt hubs. 3000 front, non PS, early tin - too early to be an SU right?
Maybe like one of my own - built out of pieces?
Here's another one that I wish were closer as I'd buy it for parts.

Only things I see out of the ordinary for an early British 4000SU would be the Minnemec injection pump and dual elemant fuel filter assembly. Probably has had a 3000 engine transplant.

The pretty one has lower lift arms/links that sure look like they extend far to rear!

Not sure I see $1000 in parts out of the second one.

You're just going to have to borrow Ken's big trailer when you go get your 3000...

I agree. I've seen a few 3000's with the Minnemec pump (owned one), but never a 4000.

I thought they didn't come out with the SUs till about 1970 or so. I suppose they could have swapped tin.

I dunno what it is... but it's certainly got the 3000 engine unless someone adapted a Simms pump onto the 201... I'd wager it's more mutt than the paint lets on.

Nothing about that tractor says 1970.

I agree Rick. But I thought that's when the SUs came out.

I've got no input on the start of SU production.

I see the decal is still on the under side of the hood! Would be real interesting to compare that to the stamped numbers!

If you search on 4000SU as the model number on the part site it comes back empty, but if you search on 4140 it comes back with "(4140) - 3 CYL SPECIAL UTILITY TRACTOR (1/65-12/74)" So New Holland thinks it was made starting in '65.
