The Craigs list link isnt working but this is a Ford 4000 Major

Built in England & USA 1965 to 1968. 3 cylinder diesel or gas engine rated 58HP gross.
Very early ones had 7F & 2R gears [hi & lo] with 4th lo & 1st hi same gear speeds]

Later true 8 F & 2R gears. Independent pto. Inboard disc brakes.

Optional gearbox is Select-o-Speed clutchless gear change on lever below steering column with 10F & 2R - AVOID THIS GEAR BOX NO SPARES AVAILABLE TODAY.

VERY reliable and powerful tractor in its day, still used widely Worldwide and spares available in US from New Holland dealers.

BEWARE Ford had problems with porous engine blocks, and most replaced with new improved block with X X raised castings on sides which are good blocks.

Just a passing comment. Ford had porous problems with all the blocks from the start of the E1A series. A friend who specialises in Fordson restoration for a living reckons that about 40% of blocks from 1952 onward are throw away. MTF

Why consider them throwaways? Local dealer would install sleeves if/when problems developed. All my Fords are over 7000 hours now; only one has had porosity problems. It was sleeved and has had over 4500 hours put on it since.
