Being a 1965 tractor, the model number should start with a 5 intead on an E, as they used a number for the first character from 1/1/65-3/68 and they used a letter from 4/1/68 onwards.

Being a Basildon tractor, they may have stamped some of he numbers on the similar flat spot on the opposite side of the tractor. Check over there to see if there are any other numbers. Also, check the under side of the right hood panel to see if the foil sticker is still there, as that will have the model number, production code and serial number, plus the production codes for the engine, transmission, hydraulic system and hydraulic pump.

Edit: I just remembered that they didn't start using the foil stickers under the hoods until some time well after 1965. I can't remember if it was in 1968 at about the same time that they changed the sheet metal, and grills and started using the letter in the model number instead of the number, or if it might have been even later, like some time in 1970 or 1971 when they started using the foil stickers.

Can't tell you exactly when they started using the foil stickers, but the '69 5200 I used to have had it. Don't remember if the early '68 5100 did or not...

Right. I wasn"t saying these numbers were from a 65 but just showing examples to show him the D138 number doesn"t tell me anything.

For him to see how other 5000 tractors have that number and the way his is so he can see why there is a problem figuring it out.
