This tractor doesn't know what it is, it's self lol. it has power major steering box, fuel tank, and gauges for 1958 - 60 or super major till 64 .
It is not a super though so 60 and before.
The gauges in the box under the steering wheel are from 1952 - 58 when the power major change came in.
The high low lever is the lever to the right of the gauges in the tin box. there are no badges on the hood it would either say diesel fordson major, fordson major or fordson power major.
look on the battery bulkhead, on the motor side of it up by the top. There should be a plate there, before 58 ish it had a serial number there which is engine number.
That should also be matching either on front right of motor stamped on pad under no 1 injector, by the joint of block to head, or if before about 55-56 ish stamped on the block flange, top by the starter mounting. if no number is stamped on the bulkhead plate, it just says product of ford or something close, it is a power major.
Find that engine number and it might give a clue to date if original motor is fitted. If i got that number I can date the motor.
Kinda thinking this might be a bit of a parts put together tractor with the gauges added.
Putting the hyds on if you got no internal pto pump is expensive.as you need a pump and all other parts from a donor tractor, then re fitting the backhoe might be a problem with 3 point hitch top on also..
If it was me I would want it running and driving for $3500. There could be issues with the motor through standing, and a hole pile of other things.
The only parts that fit this are from majors, nothing goes over to 801 or those later 000 series fords after 65 when the 6x series came out. North America had a ford 5000 diesel from 62 ish-64, painted with blue frame and cream tin and wheels, some parts from that will fit like the motor, hood, front cowl and steering and a few odd parts, But the rear end, brakes /hyds is is totally different. all parts before 60 super majors will fit with some swapping of things like steering box and fuel tanks if needed. Basic parts are the same on them.
hope this might help a bit. If you need more info ask and I"ll see what I can do. Don"t know anything about the loader and hoe, but the tractors kinda my thing. I have about 16 of this style here.I'm gonna guess this is a power major. It has the correct power major hand throttle fitted.
