open the hood and look on the serial number tag for the UNIT number it will have a number like " 5A15C " First number is the year ie 65,75,85,95

Letter is the month A=Jan B=Feb etc note they skip the letter I because it looked too much like a one

second set of number is the day of the month

last letter is the work shift A= day B= evening
C= night shift

if the tag under the hood is gone, this same number is on the trans housing along with the serial number

good luck !

Okay, thank you for the help, but if it is a "5", how am I to know if it was built in 65 or 75? Any way of telling the full year?

Thanks for the quick response, I can tell this board is going to be a great help to me.

Thanks again,

Eric Krauska

By the way.....the best I remember, there isn't a bracket for the light duty ftont ends, only for the 4000 series w/ the straight axle.
Put weights on this front end with care, the axles were well known to break at the axle pivot area, this often took out the radiator and both radius arms when they broke.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
