need help identifying ford backhoe-loader

Ray Herlocher i just purchased this tractor. was told it was a 1968 4500 I.D. tag on tractor found numbers stamped on right side as follows.
6 H 18---
C167176 7603---
any help would be appreciated

gerald If this was on the right side eng. block 6H18, I think the 8 may be a B. I come up with Augest 1,1966.
Paul; The engine serial number is lower center of the engine block. The production code is stamped on the right hand side also, but it's near where the transmission bolts attach. This appears to be the number that you posted. The 6H18 is likely 6H1B which means the engine was produced in (6) 1966 (H) August (1) first day of month (B) day shift

To identify your tractor, the model, serial number and production code may be located on the top right hand side of the bellhousing. These numbers will explain model number, chassis type, fuel type, P.T.O. type and transmission type. If you reply with these, I'll see if I can decode them for you.

Lon I am purchasing a model 555, ford backhoe-loader.
The engine serial # appearing on lower right center of engine is D5NN8015G. Also on the right lower left of engine I find the following numbers _ _ _ _ 7008C, 8E1B. Can you advise to production date of this unit?

Will I too have a 1968 Ford 4500 Backhoe/loader. I have read that in 1969 and newer the engines came with spin-on oil filters. Mine has an older type cartridge element filter on the driver's side. Mine too has very little informaiton on the machine as to when it was manufactured.
Ernie I have a strange one also can you help me with ID. please respond to e-mail add.
gerald Ernie,need to know your model#. Should be on the right side transmision mounting pad, Also under the right hood panel.
Ernie MOD. 1821 s/n 103547. on the engine r/h side B9NN 6015B cast in. Loder is a 712
gerald Ernie,Try getting the letters and numbers off the trans. Numbers should look like this C1010025A and or like LG001005A5 from the eng. Letters along with the numbers are the key. good luck
James I recently bought a 4500 ford and have been trying to identify the year I was told it was a 1964. After viewing this site and others I think it is a 1969 or newer, but none of the pictures I found have big fenders like mine. After cleaning and sanding I found a SSN of *D591353* can anyone help me with this, is this a 4500 and what year could this be, it does have the spin style oil filter.

Dan I'm buying what I think is a 4500. The Aluminum tag under the hood is unreadable but there are casting numbers on the left side of the trans that say:
3 0 99
C5 NN 402AX
On the top of the trans is says:
FoMoCo 957E-4033
On the right side of the block is says:
"C7NN 6015 T
There's also a round casting that goes from 0-9 with the number 1 at the 3 o'clock position and a little mark next to the 1
I have pictures but can't figure out how to post them.

Gary I recently was looking at a ford 1978 535 industrial tractor just a loader no back hoe. There wasn't any pto or three point hitch either. My question would be could there be a back hoe attached to that tractor and how hard would it be to find such a hoe.

Christian My father in law got a big yellow backhoe a while back. He asked me to help him identify it so he could perform some repairs and possible replace some parts. It's got a backhoe and a big bucket and lots of levers and things. He knows it's ford and thinks it might be from 1976 going by what the guy who sold it to him said. Where should I tell him to look? What resource are you guys checking with the numbers we find? Any chance someone knows where I could find a manual for a 76 ford backhoe? I really appreciate the help. I'm just a computer nerd but I want to help him out and score some points :-). Thanks a million guys.
