I ve got a Ford 5000 tractor that I believe was man. in England in 1966.My problem is finding the correct manuels fot it,because I cann t quite ID the tractor correctly. The numbers are listed on the right side behind the starter and are as follows- 6C23C - D146 - B040772. The mane problem I think is the model code. The D would indicate a 4000, but it isn t.The 1 is diesel, and it is.The 4 indicates independent 540, and it is. What is the 6? The first set of # s I think means produced 1966,March 23, afternoon shift.And the last set means made in Basildon England.Could anyone help with ID or manuels? A helpful hint is the headlights are on the outside of the hood at the top left and right sides. Thankyou fore any help.

The factory service manual will have different wiring schematics based on the factory the tractor was built in. The serial number's letter prefix designates which factory.

actually any 5000 manual will work. but as said the english had the funky emergency brake on the side of the trans, wider running boards, larger "hyway" rear fenders, light and horn and in some cases a place for a license plate.

remember that in europe, tractors were used on the roads to pull produce to markets and had to thus meet some of the "hyway" laws, so there fore the minor differences and fenders to keep the constant rain off the driver.

Otherwise the parts are the same and the engines were pretty much all built in england if i remember correctly.

Probably find it was built in England and imported into the USA,My I&T shop manual only goes to October 1964 that number being 08D-975956-L.
There is a mention of a Ford 5000 Super Major {Same as new FSM]
If you get the book commencing in 1964 and progressing , you may have your machine.
This publication is a USA item so you should not have trouble purchasing.
Seeing the NEW numbering commenced on 11/61 and the 08 is constant the next letter depicts the year, e.g. 1963..08C 1964...08D so if you can find an 08F and more likely find it on the ridge that joins the transmission to the engine..
happy hunting..Ian

There really isn't much difference where it was made. UK built for the UK market had lights set inside the front grill. The only real differences I can think of were lights, horn, parking brake, and maybe fenders. If you really want a UK spec manual, look on ebay worldwide search to get one from UK, or buy a reprint from New Holland, but any early 5000 manual will tell you what you need to know.
