I thought that when they went to the 3cly tractors they was all equipped with live pto and 8 speeds. But i just started noticing these 4speed 3cly 2000. I was just wondering if these was live pto? I been kinda looking for a small tractor with live pto and these are usally pretty cheap.im assuming there not just bc 4speed fords usally are not. Thanks for your help.

Just another point... the 4 speed was never offered with live PTO. It was only offered with transmission driven PTO, unless you count the hydraulic disconnect for the differential that they offered for the NAA, as they called that one "live PTO" but it was really just a traction disconnect and the PTO was still transmission driven.

The 2000 and 3000 also had a 6 speed transmission available. I've seen more 6 speed 2000's than I've seen 8 speeds, and more 8 speed 3000's than 6 speeds. Also, most 2000's I've seen have had non-live PTO, regardless of whether it has a 6 speed or 8 speed while most 3000's have had live PTO. I think that if someone was spending the extra money for a 3000 over a 2000 back in the day they were more likely to spend a little bit more and get the live PTO.

My 2000 4 cyl is 4 sp, tranny PTO.....yeah I know it's not a '65 up 3 cyl. My '65 3000 has as you say 8 sp, LIve. Funny I had that sucker for 10 years probably and the PO had put a 6 speed shift pattern sticker on it rather than an 8 speed so I never tried to go all the way over and up. Was thrilled when I accidentally discovered the 4th hi/lo gear.

The 3-cylinder 2000 was initially available as only a gas/4-speed. Diesel and 8-speed options were added some time after 1965. 4-speeds are all transmission driven, non-live pto. Later, mid-1968 I think, the 4-speed was replaced by the 6-speed. live pto was an option with the 6-speed, but uncommon. Most 8-speeds did have live pto, but even some 8-speeds weren't live... have to check it over before buying.

Ground speed is more important than having live pto for running a tiller. The 8-speed gives a nice, slow 1st gear gor jobs like that.

Today's Featured Article - Restoration Story: 1964 JD 2010 Dsl - Part 2 - by Jim Nielsen. Despite having to disassemble the majority of my John Deere 2010's diesel engine, I was still hopeful I could leave the engine-complete with crankshaft and camshaft-in the tractor. This would make the whole engine rebuild job much easier-and much less expensive! I soon found however, that the #4 conrod bearing had disintegrated, taking with it chunks of the crankshaft journal. As a resul ... [Read Article]
