I assume you are talking about a 4 cylinder model.
They are basically a 601 with a heavy non adjustable front axle.
I can't remember for sure now but think they had the heavier rear axle housing like the 801s.
Maybe I should say they were like an 801 but with the smaller 134 ci engune.
Don't quote me on that though.
Good, tough, long lived tractors. Generally had power steering to go along with the heavy front axle for loader work. My pal Kenny had one that he switched over from a gasser to diesel. It was a honey of a tractor with Sherman combo.
I posted a photo of it in the thread below where they were talking about the correct Buff color. The very early ones might have come from the factory Red and Buff. Most were Blue/Buff.
