Ford 5000Diesel Review
Ford 5000, British Spec
Posted by terrybro on 05/11/2013
A top class tractor that has been worked hard all it's life. Overhauled & new 6610 engine late 90s. Simple, 2wd, 8f 2r, 540 PTo, non-turbo 4.4L 4 cyl, great power & torque. Very noisy in cab, ear defenders needed on long work periods at full power. It's as useful, reliable & relevant now as it was in '74.
Model year: 1974
Date Purchased: 01/01/2000
