You got this out of Maryland? I think it started life as a 1963-65 4000 4140(5/6) Heavy duty Industrial Diesel Select o Speed tractor with the Elenco 4 wheel drive. Someone over the years must have replaced the SOS transmission and rear axle with a 5 speed transmission and rear axle from a 1955-7 800 850 ford tractor. Since the rear axles are different between the SOS and 5 speed they were force to use the 5 speed's rear axles as well. The transfer case for the Elenco would not have been a direct bolt up to the 5 speed's parts. So maybe that why it was left that off, unless it was damaged beyond repair. None of the Industrial tractors (1801,4040,4140) used the 5 speeds transmission as ford deemed them to weak for these type of machines. Only the 4 speeds and Select o Speed came in the Industrial tractor in the years between 1958-1965. Your loader is a ford 712 which available only on the 1801,4040,4140 and the 5000(Fordson Super Major). The Ford 713/723 14 foot backhoe(model 19-301) was only available with the industrial tractors(1801,4040,4140) and the 5000(Fordson Super Major). The Ford 713/723 10(19-299) and 12(19-300) foot were available on the industrial as well as other fords too. The 713 and 723 backhoes have subtle differences, the 713's came on the 1801 from 1958 to about 1960 when the 4040 came out, where sometime in the 1960's before the 4140 came out came out the 723 were being made.

The Elenco transfer case will mount up to a five speed as it mounts where the pto lever inspection cover originally mounts same as the four speed and SOS. What would be different for the Elenco between the SOS and five speed would be the coupler with sprockets.
