I have a ford tractor with these numbers on the right side of the engine ENF 6015H and on the left side of the engine 55Gl .. I don't know if I have a 600 series ford or an 800 series .. my fatherinlaw says the tractor is an 860 but I can't tell.. wondering if these engine numbers can help identify the tractor..?????

The 601 series came out in the '58 model year as a replacement/upgrade to the 600 series. In reality not much was changed. Slight boost in the hp, power steering became more common, but still optional. Live pto on the 661 model only. Diesel engine became available. From the factory, the 601 series was painted almost all red with gray grille, wheels, fenders. The gas engine is a 134 cu in and the diesel is 144 cu in. Most common models in the 601 series are:

631 - 4 speed trans and pto. 3 pt hitch optional, no proofmeter.

641 - 4 speed trans, pto, 3pt hitch, proofmeter

651 - 5 speed trans, pto, 3pt hitch, proofmeter

All of the above do NOT have live pto

661 - 5 speed trans, live pto, 3pt hitch, proofmeter

671 - Select-o-Speed trans, single speed pto (live or independent...however you like to define those terms)

681 - same as 671 except with a 2 speed live pto.

All of the above came in either gas or diesel. All are utility models with adjustable width wide fronts.

Below is a link that may give you more info.

Hi Jim,

Your knowledge of older Ford tractors is impressive. Thanks for the lessons. Keep-em-comming. Rick H. Ga.

Thanks for the compliment! History-wise, I guess I have acquired a bit of knowledge on these old Fords. I owe most of my "knowledge" to this site, Dan Dibben's website and other books I've picked up and read.

As far as what makes 'em go and how to fix them, I'm still really dependent on others. I've been lucky that my 850 has needed very little to keep it running.

I have 2 641's. Both are rated at about 35 hp. Power steering was an option but neither of mine have it. Both have "live" hydraulics, 3 point hitch and "none-live" PTO. Pric esouds real good is as advertized. albe

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
