Ford 4500 - 1968

I recently aquired a Ford 4500 series tractor
with a 727 bucket loader accessory installed,
and I found the serial number on the engine's
right hand side (next to the starter) and decoded it to have been made in 1968. I am wondering how I can tell more about the transmission on this tractor? It has a plated over outlet where I am supposing that the PTO
normally would protrude, and I do not have a lever to engage a PTO, is it still possible to ADD a PTO service?

Thanks In Advance!
Anders, first time tractor owner :)

Hi Anders,

The 4500 is the industrial version of the 4000 series and many of them were equipped with a shuttle shift transmission, which will not accommodate a PTO. Many of the 4500's did not come equipped with a 3 point hitch either. However, some 4500's came from the factory with one or the other, or with both PTO & 3 point hitch.

Tell us which transmission your 4500 has, and someone will be able to tell you if it can accommodate a PTO.

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]
