Re: Ford 7700
This isn't a 7700. It's a 8100 or a 7700 fitted with 6 cilinder.

Re: Ford 7700
It could also be a 8700 with the side panels of a 7700 when the original been damaged.

Re: Ford 7700
Could be Johan, but the x700 series all have the frontaxle much more to the front of the tractor. Frontwheels are ahead of the radiatorgrill. The 8100 has the frontwheels more to the back like this one.

Re: Ford 7700
Thanks Peter. Maybe a stone fork (Kverneland used to market a tool like this for picking up big stones, linkage or front end loader mounted).

Re: Ford 7700
I'm not quite good in English but I know what is it is a thing, i will try to explain..

This was an original FORD 7700, it's fitted whit an 6cillinder FORDmotor. You can see there's placed a plate of steel around the nose from the tractor, that isn't original. The frontaxle moved also a bit tho the front because it normaly is fitted to the motor. The point where it is fitted tho the tractor is original, but the turned the front axle. normaly it is turned 180 degrees and then fitted under the tractor, the steeringcillinders are at the front of the axle but original they are between the front and rearwheels...

it's a nice tractor but i don't like the hood, the last bit in front of the cabine

Re: Ford 7700
The engines of these were not very good, so that's probably why they changed the engine. As far as I can see it isn't a 8100, they had another frame.

@Joostw; Nice explanation, very pedagogic!

@TC; It is a Kverneland stone fork.

It's a Kverneland stone fork at the back of the tractor. Here is a (small) picture from a Norweigan dealer who sell these forks from Kverneland.

btw: Nice Ford

Re: Ford 7700
I agree wholeheartedly with joostw. The engine is the 6,6 l. 6 cilinder, and not the 2713E the 8100 used. And as Edwin says the 8100 used another type of sidemembers to support the unstressed 2713E engine.
To bad they didn't fit a 8700 bonnet on it.
