These tractors rolled all of the successful technology that had gone into making the 4020 such a remarkable tractor into a series that boasted more comfort, and convenience. Deere also built a special version of the 4020 for Latin American customers. The exact information available would depend on the dealer and brand, and what they are willing to release to you. It indicates the 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, 7000 or 8000 series type.
The smaller nozzles allowed for a seal to be made more easily between the nozzle and the lines, and undoubtedly saved many farmers and tractor service men from headaches. If the plate has faded very badly, try making a rubbing of the imprint. The first number indicated the Series Production Code followed by the Chassis Production Code. I ordered a new spring from John Deere and gave them the serial number T213R etc. Eventually, though, Deere decided it better to not give customers the choice of whether or not they wanted to be protected in the case of a roll over, and the Stolper cabs were dropped.

In the case of this example, the tractor was built in 1964. The intake valve was updated and helped bring more air to the engine. Please Read On How To Tell How Old Your Piano Is!! This was handy when attempting to hook up to implements. Other options included dual rear wheels and an enclosed cab with heat and air conditioning. If it is, email me and I will post the information. I sent it out to have it rebuilt and in the process of putting it back on, I realized that the spring that goes on the bottom of the shaft is missing. It replaced the nearly identical 4010 that had been introduced with Deere's New Generation series in 1960 and offered a number of improvements over the previous model including more horsepower, heavier rear axles, and a.
The serial number was typically marked in only one location on the tractor. Minneapolis-Moline had their Ampli-Torc and Magna Power systems, Ford had Select-O-Speed, and Case went with Case-O-Matic. So strap on your thinking caps and lets see if we can make some sense of this. If it has an round muffler and the controls are on the dash it is a 68 or older.

Make sure you do not confuse a 7 for a 1.
Many older 4020s and their owners would benefit from getting the tractor converted to the 12 volt system. This convenient feature could be switched on and off on the go, and offered two settings. These all steel cabs had windshield wipers and could be ordered with heat but not air conditioning. In 1969 John Deere introduced the 4000 tractor that was based on the 4020. The 1969 model year also brought another new option. The first 4020 standards had the same fenders that the 4010 tractors wore. The engine serial number is usually unrelated to the tractor serial number certain Farmall models are an exception to this.
For 1965, 4020 standard tractors began using a different type of fender that included headlights in the front. Model years versus calendar years Tractors, just like automobiles, are manufactured on a model or production year. John Deere has always used serial number for parts breaks and the year is irrelevent. The muffler on the tractor was replaced with an oval version. Unless you happen to have the first first tractor off the production line, then your particular number will not be on the list. Another manufacturer had actually beaten Deere to the punch. I suppose it might also matter whether or not they know you by name and print the appropriate type of ticket without asking.
Deere exported 4020 tractors to Europe. Your number will lie between two listed numbers. I did not check it at that time as it was not important to me. John Deere and its logos are the registered trademarks of the John Deere Corporation. Suddenly two levers were required for many more tasks than before.
I am not aware of this service being available for any other brand. Eight forward speeds was a small number for tractors built in this period, but Deere felt that they had chosen these speeds very carefully to match all jobs that a farmer would do. The engine, front axle, and cab may all have their own serial numbers. I have been working on it in this location, so I have an excuse to not work on it when it is very cold. These more closely matched the fenders used on row crop 4020s and the 5010.
Thanks for all the help with my questions. Piano serial numbers usually have five to seven digits, but may have fewer or more, depending on the manufacturer and age of your piano. Typically this was not a problem, but it did make some work extremely difficult to accomplish. In the case of 5010 tractors, however, it indicated the John Deere 700 model which is in fact the tractor-shaped industrial model. A 4020 equipped with a Power Shift had no real clutch, so there was no easy way to accomplish this same task. The Dubuque numbering system is different.
