This pertains to the older Ford models based on the Jacobsen Chief models (100,120, & 140). I came across this info while going through the Mower manuals that I uploaded this morning. If my understanding of what was written on page 2 of this manual, this may help some folks with the model # of their tractors.
Model #'s of tractors with Power Drive Clutch:
53057, 53059, 53062, 53064, 53066, 53078, 53083, 53091, & 53093

Model #'s of tractors with Electric Clutch:
53075, 53086, 53089, 53250, & 53265

I'm hoping this can give members an idea of which tractor they have when asking for help with an issue. And to give those wishing to help a better idea of where to look to help. As I am unfamiliar with these older models, it can give me a heads up to which tractor folks are talking about.

I am pinning this info. If someone can add to this to make it better, do so! It would be nice if we could figure out which of these Model #'s are for the 100, which for the 120, and so on.

EDIT: I have gotten the models figured out. I will need to put something together and get it added in here.

Got the model #'s figured out and sorted. Here ya go:

EDIT: This list is not to be taken as FACT! If you have a tractor the conflicts with the data here, PLEASE post the tractor info (Model & Serial) including the engine Model & Serial. I will update the list so we have as correct info as we can compile!Model Numbers by year.jpg

Kenny that is not only a rare thing to see it will help people a lot!
Like if someone bought one and it has a k241 they (we) would assume it was a Ford 100 or a Chief 1000. But now people might be surprised to find they really have a Ford 120 or a Chief 1200 and the K241 was just an implant a PO put on.

And to know the year of the GT with out having to really on the Engine year. :D :thumbs: :thumbs: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

The info was there all the time. Once I had some model #'s to work with, I was able to get the info through New Holland. Then it was a matter of organizing it for you folks to use! Merry Christmas!

'72 to '76 were open side, '77 started the closed sides.

Just found this page and it cleared things up for.me I bought a Ford 100  that was supposed to be 70,that had origanl paint on it and I repainted it back that way. , and last year our club featured Fords and a man came by that was a Ford Tractor dealer back then and he told me that my tractor was not a 70 painted that way it was a 68. That chart proved it is a 68. ## 530647098 Thanks Kenny

ps, I had a sign made with my name and tractor info on it so now I bought  a 70 and painted it way a 70 should be, just have to buy new sign for the 68

Thanks fordoholic! I just got a new 120 and thought it was about 30 years old but from your charts it's a '69er.No wonder I can't find the size of belt I need for the deck. I've been all over town and no one can figure it out.I just posted a question on the Ford forum seeing if someone can help me with that.

   Thanks again

Gene
