I'm taking a stab at this but

Your tractor was built 02 Feb 1965 during the day shift.

And it's a 3000, Agricultural, Gas, Live PTO w/8speed.

i'm assuming it was built in Detroit. There is a website that gives a break down of the Ford production codes. Does yours still have a foil tag on the inside of the hood?

I hope this helps,

The early tractors did not have the tag under the hood.

Thanks for the quick response. Which number is the Model number and which number is the serial number? I was looking at a site that helps you identify it but it doesn't look to be the same here is an example they gave...

Tractor Model No: C1023C

Tractor Production Code: 2J29B
= Unit Date Code

Tractor Serial Number: C354485
Model No. meaning:

C = Model 3000

10 = Agricultural All Purpose

2 = Gas

3 = Live PTO, 540 rpm

C = 8 speed transmission

Serial No. meaning:

C = built in the USA

B = built in Basildon, England
Unit Date Code meaning:
2 = 1972

J = September

29 = 29th day of the mo.

B = Day shift

Is the model number C101986...? If so why is the parts manual saying my fuel tank was for a ford 3400....? Also I'm trying to get my account permissions changed to allow me to post the pic of the numbers...

31023C is the model number and C101986 is the serial number. At some point Ford changed the first digit of the model to a letter inplace of the number so 3 was changed to C (the tird letter in the alph)
