on the left side of the motor HN2 0k04

Someone can help me?

Howdy shk, welcome to the forum.

The numbers you need to find are stamped into the metal on a flat spot just above and behind the starter. They may be obscured by dirt, paint, rust, corrosion, etc. Use a wire brush if necessary to clean them up where you can read them. There should be 3 sets of numbers: Model, Mfg. Code, Serial Number. The model number should start with DF1 or DF2.

Great picture by the way. Please register your tractor on the forum

Ok shk, here's my translation of your tractor's numbers:

Model DF211K - Ford 550 Industrial flat deck tractor. TLB (tractor/loader/backhoe). Diesel engine, no PTO, 6x4 speed manual reversing transmission.

Date of Mfg. Code 0L11 - The zero should be a 6,7, or 8 because the tractor was manufactured 1976-1977-1978. Check this number again. The code 0L11 would interpret as November 11, 1980.

S/N B383135 - Made in Basildon, England.
