Hello Rick , I just explained it to you in my last post there is nothing confusing about your tractor . The Red and Buff ones were built from late 1960 to Mid 1962 , your tractor was built in Jan. 1962(2000 Light Duty Industrial, 134 gas engine, power steering, 4speed trans. three point and pto). The serial number change began in mid 1962 when Ford changed the colors from Red and Gray / Red and Buff to Blue and Gray / Blue and Buff and started a new serial number sequence . I also just explained to you in my last post your tractor is exactly like a 1962 641 tractor EXCEPT the FRONT BOLSTER, FRONT AXLE , RADIUS RODS and TIE RODS those are the ONLY PARTS changed on the Light Duty Industrial Tractors and they are just HEAVY DUTY ONES. The Heavy Duty Bolster ONLY CAME ON THE 2000/4000 Light Duty Industrial tractors built from late 1960-1965 . They could also be bought over the parts counter at a Ford Dealer when they were available . The information you are reading or getting is not from Ford or from guys who do not know what they are talking about plain and simple . There is nothing left to sort out I just told you what parts are different on your Industrial everything else is the same as any 601 series tractor . I personally have two 1962 Red & Buff 4000 Light Duty Industrials and two Blue & Buff Light Duty Industrials one 1963 and one 1965 , three are gas 4 speed w/ shermans and one is a Diesel w/ S.O.S , three are 4x4's with three point and pto , one has no three point or pto , all have loaders and two are backhoes also . If you have any other questions just post here or email me . Thanks Tony
