I purchased a Ford loader/backhoe it has a 3 cylinder diesel with the 4 speed shuttle shift. On the tag under the hood panel it has for model # D5011T Unit # 0A29B and Number C261513 can anyone tell me what I have? Thanks I want to order some manuals for it. Ken from Maine

D5011T looks like the model number, but the last character probably isn't a T.
D50 at the beginning says its a 4500 (industrial chassis model within the 4000 series)

The first 1 says it has a diesel engine.

The second 1 says it has no PTO

The last character should be a letter that says what transmission it has, but if it has the 4x4 torque converter auto reversing transmission that you describe as a 4 speed shuttle shift, then the letter at the end should be an "F". They didn't use T for a transmission designation until much later, and it would have meant that it has a 9x3 manual transmission which they didn't even make until the 4500 was no longer in production, and which I think they only ever used in the Shibaura built compact tractors.

Unit Number 0A29B says it left the assembly line on January 29, 1970 during the day shift.

The Tractor Number is the serial number, and C261513 is a 1970 serial number, so that agrees with the Unit Number above.

So you have a 1970 Ford 4500 with a diesel engine, no PTO and the 4x4 torque converter auto reversing transmission. Congratulations.

Thank you so much!! It runs good and does what it is supposed to do. It has a factory hydraulic thumb on the dipper. A cab to keep the rain off so life is good. Thanks again

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
