Recently got a 60s ford 2000, the engine has been changed and is a 172 now. Theres no numbers near the starter that I can see. Any other way to find the exact year? It has the 5 speed, 2-stage clutch, all blue sheet metal (just the wheels are buff color)

Was a 6V system originally but has been converted to 12V which should mean pre-1965 I think.

With a 5 speed transmission it is definitely a pre-1965 2000. In 1965 they changed to a 3 cylinder engine and the 5 speed was no longer an option.

You can make an educated guess by
checking the casting dates on the major
components. Also any production run
changes will be shown in the parts book
along with the dates. If it's still
original the radiator will have a date
stamped into a tag on the top.

It sounds like someone has been mixing and matching parts. First, how do you know that it is a 2000, or it has a 172 CI engine(is it Gas or Diesel?) and it has a 5 speed, 2-stage clutch? Pictures will help get an ID on your tractor quicker if you can post them up. So at this point, it does not matter what it started life as, it matter what it is now. Using casting numbers, date codes, and visual clues you can determine what parts you need to order for it. I would recommend keeping a binder on it and recording all the information as you go. So when you are ready, just say so and we can get started.

I wire-wheeled where the serial number should be, was a decal over it as well as some bondo, metal is badly pitted, only could make out a D. theres a tag on left side of engine identifying it as a ford industrial engine, 172 cid. only number on tractor casting easily read is by pto lever. Hopefully I can get pictures to post.
