    Default Identify this ? How do I find out the year of my Ford 2000 tractor ?

    Ford 2000 TLB serial # 2888, with a Ford 730 Loader . Has a 3 cyl. diesel engine, hi-low trans,. power steering, live PTO with 3 point hitch.

    Backhoe is a BRADCO model 13 MD serial #BE436, it is a sub frame mounted (detachable)

    I'm not sure of the year it was produced but I know its between 1965-1975.

    Look at the ledge of the transmission on the RH side above the starter. The date code is one of three numbers stamped in the ledge. The date code will be: #LETTER##LETTER such as 8A18B. The example would be a 1968 (8), January (A), 18th day (18), afternoon shift (B)

    didn't fit?

    fit FINE!

    ist sn of 1975 was: C450700
    thus by sn, yours falls in 1975.. lets look at date code:5g01b

    5 = 1975 g= july, 01 is day of month, B is day shift

    model # b1023c

    B instead of a 2 means it is a post 68 machine.. that agrees so far.

    b = 2000 68-75
    10 ag chassie
    2 gas engine
    3 live 540 pto ( dual clutch )
    c = 8spd twin stick tranny


    i'm guessing you actually didn't look at the chart didya as it tells you everything....

    you can't trust that label under the hood. what if someone replaced the sheet metal 15 years ago
    and did not remove the label. it would mislead someone down the road as it may be doing now.

    its easy enough discernern a diesel from a gasoline motor yes, but find the numbers on the trans
    and you will be more likely to have the correct info.

    yep.. trans bellhousing dupes the foil tag.

    besides.

    what if someone swapped the engine along the way.

    all 3 cyl have the same bolt pattern..

    could be a swapped in parts machine.. trans and hood from different places..e tc.

    My dad's 4000 was originally a gasoline tractor; when he was going to overhaul it about ten years ago, the engine shop owner (a friend of his) turned him onto a low-hours '96(?) New Holland commercial diesel sitting at a local NH shop. Turns out they wanted about as much for that oil-burner as it was going to cost to overhaul the gas mill; needless to say, that Blue tractor now has a yellow mill under its hood.
