Default Early model Ford 4000

I am looking at what the owner says is an older model Ford 4000. It has no decals on it but my concern is that it has the round emblem on the front like the 600's thru 900's. I have not seen any like this. It is a diesel and has the air cleaner that is vertical. It has a four speed transmission. It has been repainted with the wrong color gray but the blue seems to be correct. The only tractor that I have been able to find with the exact conformation is an 881. Will the serial # reveal if it is a 4000? Any help would be appreciated.

Model number and serial number will be the way to ID the tractor. Much of the sheetmetal is interchangeable with the hundred series. Realize that many of these old tractors lost their purity in many ways long ago. Many times sheetmetal was the first to go.

Yes the model # on the bellhouse will tell you. The model # will be on top of the serial #
If the # starts with 4 it will be a 4000 if it starts with a 2 it will be a 2000. The light industrial model will have a on piece fron axle.
Some of the earlier 4000/2000 light indutrials had the cyclops nose piece.
The 881 can't be right if it is a 4 speed unless the SOS was changed out

mind you mine is a rowcrop.. but here's what the front tin on a regular ( non light industrial ) early 4000 will look like.

Thanks for all of your responses. Cannot read the full model number or serial number but the part of the model # readable is 41-D so I assume that it is an 841 diesel. The only number readable on the serial # is the very last digit. The outer part of the front grille is missing.

The tractor runs good and everything appears to operate as it should, it's just not what he advertised. All of the sheet metal is in good condition with the exception of the missing front outer grille.

Again, thanks for your responses.

The diesel had a bigger battery tray that carried thru to both sides to accomadate the bigger 12 volt battery for the diesel which when leaked destorated the serial/model #'s on the flat spot below the tray. Since the first diget is missing it could also be a 641-D. The 144 diesel in the 641 is harder to get parts for then the 172 diesel carried by the 841-D. You said the outer grille is missing so I assume It has a grille styled more like an 841 rather then the 641 which is style more like the jub/naa/hundred series grille. The best way to confrim would be to get the #'s off the engine. The 841 is bacially the same as the early 4000.
