So I've been given a tractor because my father in law is not mechanically inclined at ALL and it need a New PTO clutch in it, the head needs some work (because its blowing by and exhausting gasses out of the oil fill) and the generator dosent work. To me, and for me it not a big deal to fix this tractor myself. but the fist thing Im trying to figure out is what the 2 levers are for on the right foot rest. One show it is a float for the rear arms and the other one is operated with your foot. It is the second one that has be baffled. so if some one could start with what that foot lever is for I would appreciate it.

all of the number that I can find are locate under the hood

They are:

Unit # 2l14B
Engine# 2k19B
Trans# 2j13C
Rear Axel# 2K02B
Hyd Pump# 2J20A
Hyd Lift# 2C23A

My question to start is where can I find the info on this tractor...

The Tractor # C363075 is the serial number, which indicates it was assembled in late 1972. The C at the beginning indicates that it was built at the US factory. There were also factories in Basildon, England (B), and Antwerp Belgium (A).

The Model # E1924C tells you exactly what model and options it has. The first digit tells you what series the tractor is, and the E says it is a 5000 series, the next 2 digits tells you what chassis it has, but 19 doesn't show up as a valid chassis type in my charts. If it is a 10 instead of a 19, which is the most common, then it's a general purpose agricultural chassis. The next digit tells you what kind of fuel the engine uses, and a 2 indicates it's a gasoline engine. The next digit tells you what kind of pto it has, and the 4 indicates it's an independent pto. The last digit indicates what transmission it has, and the C indicates that it's an 8 speed tranny.

The Unit # 2l14B is also called the production code and it tells you exactly when it the final assembly was done. The 2 says it was 1972, the L says it was in November, the 14 says it was the 14th day of the month and the B says it was assembled by the day shift. So November 14, 1972 day shift, which agrees with the serial number being from late 1972.

The other numbers are production codes for the various sub assemblies.
Engine# 2k19B - October 19, 1972 day shift.
Trans# 2j13C - September 13, 1972 afternoon shift
Rear Axel# 2K02B - October 2, 1972 day shift
Hyd Pump# 2J20A - September 20, 1972 midnight shict
Hyd Lift# 2C23A - March 23, 1972 midnight shift

I use tractordata to put a year to a serial number.
I use the Oaktree tractor page to decode the other numbers on the 1965 - 1975 Ford tractors.

If you don't already have one, you should probably start out by getting an operators manual, and if you plan to do anything more then fluid and filter changes yourself, a service manual as well.

Welcome Brad :) As you already said, you came to the right Forum! One comment I have is that I believe bad rings can cause blow by too. Again, welcome!
