Nope, I don't have one of those.

Seems odd that they would make a tractor without one a locking diff.

I'm learning real fast a fella would upgrade to a tractor with more options. It'll still do what I need it to do though, which is mow.

Diff lock was optional on most 3000/4000 models - at least in the early years. It may have become standard later.
It was not even available on the early 2000s. Sometime later the trumpet on the 2000s were changed from the early round cross section to the square cross section like the 3000s used and diff lock became available as an option.
Does your tractor have the little lever #18 in the diagram on it?
The first 3000 I owned did not have parts numbered from 1-16 in the diagram posted by Bern. Interestingly enough, it Did have parts numbered 18-23 and the internal parts.
An odd delete halfway through the building of the tractor.
It was during a search for those deleted parts that I found a complete 8 speed lpto transmission and rear end - with diff lock and ended up replacing the whole back half of the tractor.

I guess Ford assumed that anyone who bought a 2 or 3000 back in the day wanted a base model that was as cheap as possible. Diff locks are nice to have, but not mandatory for everyone. Even the "high end" 6000 tractors, built during the same time period, did not have a diff lock.
