I have searched the archives of this site and located several posts on County tractors but none were able to help me in my search to identify my tractor. I would like to gather general information on where to purchase parts, if still available, and specifications on the tractor. Please help me to identify my tractor. The numbers on the right mounting pad are 3J7 and B928819 while the number on the oil pan rail is D523256. The left mounting pad has the numbers 3D26C and T70A14. I purchased the tractor thinking it is the ford 4600 or 4610 but the local ford dealer is unsure and said it could be equivalent to the ford 4000. Please e-mail me at dewain@peoplestel with any information you may have. Thank you!

The only County's that I have seen were the Super 6's. They were based on the 5000. However, I do think they did conversions on other models, the 4000 probably being one of them. County's forte was adding FWD as an aftermarket setup. When Ford started offering FWA as a factory option in the late seventies, County was not long for the tractor business. The serial # you posted (B928819 ) would likely correspond to a 1973. This is a Ford Basildon produced serial number. 3D26c is a production date code of some component or another, which reads as 26th of April 1973 (likely). It could also be an '83.(The cycle repeated every 10 years.) If the engine block is smooth, then it's probably the 73, if it has external ribbing it is definitely an '83. County, from what I know basically involved themselves in adding FWD to a standard Ford skid unit (Basildon). So, most parts for the tractor proper are simply Ford parts, easily sourced from NewHolland, or this site and others. FWD parts, I don't know about for sure. As far as I know, County went bankrupt. I'm guessing you would be S#it Outta Luck in that dept. Post a pic if you can. That sometimes helps to id the tractor better. Otherwise, the specs should be the same as the Ford model skid it is based on. HTH.

Where is the ribbing on the block you mentioned? I will look for this indicator to determine if it is the newer model. The manual I have decodes the number on the pan rail as a 4600 but the dealer questioned this number. Thanks for your help Rod.

Hello, hope your tractor is in good shape by now. Im writing an article about County in Norway, and have a list of Prefixes and what clutch, engine and gearbox that means. But the prefixes does not correspond with your numbers. 4F is a County 654 from -64 to -68, 4 FC/5FC is -65 to -75 and has a newer Ford 5000 engine. Ford 5000 is the engine ever used in County, then comes 6600, 6610, 7000, 2703E and so on up to the big TW 35 engine. Oddivar

The whole surface of the newer style blocks had a sort of cross hatch rib pattern, probably 1/4" high. It is unmistakeable. The 4600 block would not have that anyway. At a guess, I would say it is a 4600 or older. If you have a manual that tells you the Ford number on the pan rail, and it says it's a 4600, I think I would go with that unless there was a real good reason to question it. HTH.
