The 5-speed was available in the 600 series as well.
If the one you're looking at shifts with a different movement than the 5-speed you have, it's probably a 4-speed. Some people, for some reason, count reverse as a speed when advertising their tractors. All Ford 5-speeds have the same shift pattern... and I agree with you about 3rd/reverse being handy for loader work.

Sorry about the confusion. I was looking at the shifter wrong on the one I'm thinking about buying. It is an up and down, left and right or as soundguy put it, fore/aft. Physics wasn't my best subject in college. That will make my decision about exchanging the engines simpler. I'm probably going to just put my loader on this tractor. Love the third to reverse.

Thanks again:

not on a 4spd.. he's got a 5 and the shifter is bent or installed rwrong.. and he doesn't understand physics enough to know that fore / aft and left / right is the same rotational movement.. just in a different quadrant...
