Hello all. New guy here with my first but likely not my last post.

I'd like to know if someone here could tell me what tractor I have. My Dad bought it when I was just a young pup and its sat under a shed for the last twenty years or so. To get started I'd just like to know what it is so I can be in the correct forum. This is the information I have on it:
On the flat spot behind the starter on the left side there's numbers that appear to be hand stamped its 640 or maybe b40

And below that is a diamond then 14014 followed by another diamond.
Upside down numbers cast below the oil filter is 11 then further to the right of that number is 4B3:1

On the block below the coil/distributor on the right side is EAE-6015- (? something I can't make out)

On the trans is NCA 7006.B

On the left side below the pto lever is NCA 4024B

The main color is red with the bodywork being a cream color.

It has a 4 speed transmission and a 4 cylinder valve in head engine.

For guages it has a large tach on top with smaller gauges of ammeter, temperature and oil pressure below.
From pictures I've seen I thought it may be a NAA Jubilee but it does not have that round Jubilee badge on the nose.

According to the Model and Serial number you have a 1955 Ford 640. It is a 600 series utility tractor with a 4 speed transmission, PTO and 3 point. The engine number, EAE 6015 is a 134 cubic inch engine uses from 1953-1957, check the link below for more info.

First welcome aboard! As a newbie, if you plan on being a Ford Tractor owner/operator, you will need to get all essential manuals once we ID your tractor. There is plenty to know and can be a lot of fun working on and operating these fine old machines. Just read and know correct operations and safety points before firing up. Next, look in the right spot for serial number identification. Some of those numbers mean nothing. Colors mean nothing -many Dark Grey, Red & Grey and even Blue Ford tractors have been painted over, some yellow for municipalities some, ye gads, green and yeller! You said: "...It has a 4 speed transmission and a 4 cylinder valve in head engine...". All Ford N-Series tractors, the 9N, 2N, 8N, used the 4-culinder flat head 120 CID engine. Did you mean yours has an overhead valve type? If so, then that would be the 134 CID OHV "Red Tiger" engine used up thru the Hundred Series. Beginning with the '53 NAA (first released in September, 1952) Ford released the new Red Tiger OHV engine, still a 4-cylinder. The 600 Model, released in 1954, was essentially the NAA/Jubilee Model with some slight modifications, both with the same 134 engine. The NAA nose cone had the wheat straw logo nose cone emblem had the name GOLDEN JUBILEE on the Ford '53 JUBILEE. The '54 NAA had no 'JUBILEE" markings but still had the wheat straw nose cone emblem. ALL Hundred Series Models had a nose cone emblem as well simply ID'g the Model number, i/e 600/800/900. The OEM stnd transmission speed ranges were: 3 FOR/1 REV -all 9N/2N Models; 4 FOR/1 REV -all 8N Models; 4 FOR/1 REV -all NAA Models; 4 FOR/1 REV and 5 FOR/1 REV 600/800/900 - used both depending on Model. That doesn't include any auxiliary optional aftermarket transmissions like a Sherman, Hupp, or Everett so don't get cornfused. Finally, all Ford engines, nit just tractors, used a STAR symbol (*) in the serial number prefixes and suffixes to designate that steel cylinder sleeves were used. Beginning in April, 1950 Ford would revamp the 8N and one change was they now had cast iron cylinder sleeves. The serial numbers would then designate the DIAMOND (<>)symbol to signify cast iron sleeves were in use. It's a moot point nowadays because the industry does not make nor sell steel sleeves anymore, only cast iron. Steel was poor choice and Ford must have knew this otherwise why would they need to ID star symbol? I have my own theory that manufacturing cast iron sleeves were too costly to manufacture until engineering developed the centrifugal casting method. This was a means to spin cast the part all in one sold continuous casting with no seams. Anyway, here is some info to chew on...

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Don't think he can 'til he's had more posts here.

Sounds like he's got a 640, one of the 600 series.

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
