I have a 5610 diesel which is one of my main modern "Get It Done" tractors. This all started as I was looking for a part catalog for the tractor. The information on the data plate on the right hood states it is Tractor # BD11310, Model LA414C, Unit 2C16B with Engine 344814 2C12. It also indicates it was made in England. Were all 5610's made in England and does that mean it is a metric tractor as well? Back to the part catalog I found reference to one for a 5610S - my tractor has the Roman Numeral II with Special below the II Decal. I believe I have heard these noted as Series 2 models around here and don't know the differences between a straight 5610, 5610S and the Series 2 models. I have seen what I believe to be casting dates on some major castings which indicates mid-year 1992 casting dates to me. Does all of this information go along with the information from the data plate? Is a 5610S part catalog the correct one for my tractor or do I need to look for something else? Where is the best source for Ford manuals and a part catalog as all I know where to look is on eBay. Any information and assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated, Hal.

Okay Sean, The transmission code for the 16x8 (8x4 with dual power) syncro is "L".

I kinda thought it would be, because of the gap in the listing!

HTH, Dave

Dave thanks for the info on the "D" transmission code. I'll include that in the next version of my document.

One other interesting thing that I found was that there is no transmission designation listed for the 8x4 partially synchronized manual transmissions in the 10 series tractors!

My '84 3910 has that transmission, and if I can find the designation letter, I will get it to you.

HTH, Dave

Okay Sean, I checked 2 different 3910's. Both have the 8x4 syncro tranny. Transmission code on both was "D".

HTH, Dave

PS: I know of a 6610-II that had an 8x4 with dual power. I'll try to get that code for you at some point.

Thank you very much Sean, I found it interesting that the PTO designation "4" was omitted from the model # on the under hood foil sticker on my 5610-II, but all else is correct.

I wonder if the change from "LA3" to "LA4" came with the change to Series 2 or with the change from US to British production.

The code is correct for my '82 5610 also, but it has been converted to vertical exhaust.

Thanks much, Dave

If it's a Force II 5610, then it's NOT a 5610s... I forget what the 'Special' denoted at this point but I doubt it's that significant. This would be a March 1992 build; that itself being somewhat special as they were several months into 40 series production at that point in time. I think 'Special' may have denoted that it was a special, cheap a$s stripped down model 5610 and that's about it.
Hardware, etc is generally of the standard variety... but any euro derived componentry outside the Ford spectrum will be metric. ie. MFWD axles and transfer boxes... remote hydraulic valves, etc.

Rod, I don't know much about the Ford tractors of that era but when I retired back to the farm in the early 2000's I bought it to have a modern convenient tractor to use on Dad's farm since I was doing all the work. Dad had a couple of earlier tractors (Ford 8N and Massey Ferguson 165) and I wanted something bigger with a loader which could get something done. My uncle who lives in this area and a Ford guy from the 1950's knew of this tractor which was 10 years old at the time with only 400 hours. So that is the 5610 I bought and it has been a very solid get it done tractor ever since I have owned it. This tachometer issue is a nuisance thing but do like everything working as it should. I believe the cable to the dash is about as straight as possible but will certainly check it out when I get into the matter following hay season around here. I'll also get into the part that small cable fits into and make sure all previous remnants have been removed as well. Thanks again for all the information, Hal.

Hal, glad I could be of help. I just noticed you're located in Rolla. I have lots of relatives around there. Most are in Freeburg where my mom grew up. I spent most of my summers in that area when I was young, and that's where I learned to drive tractors.

Sean, Yes, Freeburg is just up the road about 40 miles and go through the quaint little town when going north up US 63. Several nice things located around that area.
Likewise, I spent all my youthful summers around Rolla on my Grandparents (Mom's father and mother) while dad was in the US Army during the late 1940's and early 50's. Had a great youth on their farm driving tractors and especially during thrashing as grandpa had the neighborhood trashing machine and seemed like I drove tractors all summer as a kid. That was of the era when hay was put up loose in the barn with a big fork up in the top of the barn and pulled it up with a small tractor. Almost all the tractors in the area were Farmalls at that time but those 8N's starting taking over in the 1950's with their 3-point hitches. Take care and thanks again for the information, Hal.

Model LA414C is a 5610 series II as Shetland Sheepdog said.

Unit 2C16B means that it rolled off the assembly line on March 16, 1992 during the day shift.

Tractor # BD11310 is the serial number, which is a 1992 serial number and agrees with the Unit number.

Engine 344814 2C12 - I believe that 344814 is the serial number of the engine, and 2C12 means that the engine was assembled on March 12 1992.

If you search the New Holland parts site for 5610 as the model, you will get several listings returned. Select the following one fromt he list for your tractor:

(5610) 4 CYL AG TRACTOR 10 SERIES (1/81-12/93)

They do not differentiate between the original 5610 and the 5610 II in the model listing in the parts site, but just make sure that if there are different part numbers listed for the same part in the drawing that you use the part number that says that it is for the date that your tractor was made.

Sean, thanks very much for the response and "breaking the code" to my tractor's numbers. It is certainly nice information to have and noted it in my Operators Manual for the tractor. I have an issue with my tractor I am going to address now that I have the proper terminology for the affected parts from the on-line catalog. Thanks again, Hal.

Sean, Not to hi-jack the thread, but can you direct me to the info for interpreting the model #'s

TIA, Dave

I wouldn't bother with buying a parts catalog, just go to the on line parts catalog!

http://partstore.agriculture.newholland.com/us/parts-search.html#epc::model_find

HTH, Dave

Edit: Your tractor is a '92 5610-II, Not a 5610S. All 5610 tractors were built in Basildon, England in those years. I'm not sure what the "special" under the II means, but would suspect it's an economy model.

I have an '82 5610 built here (serial # starts with C)

I have an '89 5610-II built in England (serial # starts with BB)

Thanks very much for the link to the on-line Ford catalog as that was very helpful. I have a problem with the 5610 tractor I will try and address through another thread. Thanks again for the helpful info, Hal.
