A flooded engine won't fire, even with starter fluid. If it doesn't fire with proper air/fuel mix, reasonable compression, and spark, then you're only left with timing.

Suggest you remove all the spark plugs and rotate engine until cylinder 1 is near TDC of the compression stroke (use a finger to cover spark plug hole 1 to tell when in compression stroke instead of exhaust and a screw driver down the plug hole to find near TDC). Then remove distributor cap and observe where your plug 1 wire is in relation to cap and rotor and other plug wires. (Note; distributor rotates CCW(front view) firing order 1243.)

good source for ?N info.

Here is the manual for the 2000, 3000, 4000 and 5000,

Here is a video of 1 with the bucket attachment showing the filter location on it,

And here is a answer;

More info added;
The rear differential fluid level check plug is behind your right heel as you are seated on your tractor. Once again, it is a small square-headed pipe plug. You may have to squat down to see this plug.

The rear differential reservoir is where your hydraulic pump draws fluid. The filler cap is on top of the rear differential center housing. (some have two filler caps there - both serve the same purpose).

The drain plugs are square-head plugs that are recessed. You have to get under the trans and rear end to see them. Also, the drawbar may obscure the rear end drain plug. I have to unbolt my drawbar and slide it back to get to my rear drain plug.

Use FORD 134A tractor hydraulic fluid or equivalent Universal Tractor Fluid in both reservoirs. You can get UTF from Tractor Supply Stores, auto parts stores, Wal-Mart, etc.

There is a hydraulic filter and suction screen deep down below your hydraulic lift cover (under the seat). If you want to change the filter, and clean the screen, you will have to pull the hydraulic lift cover. And there are other items to remove before you can access the filter. I feel that you will need a shop manual before you tackle this job.

If the hydraulic pump will not pump, after you've determined that the hydraulic reservoir is full, you can prime the hydraulic pump by pulling the test plug on the pump and rigging up a clear plastic line back to the fill port. Start the engine and let it pump until all the air bubbles are expelled.

After you get your lift working, refill the rear reservoir with the lift arms raised.

It should be taken to machine shop and resurfaced to ensure that it is flat. The smoothness is from wear surface should not be shiny.

The Ford 6640 provides 67 HP at the drawbar and is rated at 76 HP at the PTO. See for the specifications.

I hope this helps.

The date code, either on the hood or RH transmission ledge, where you might find these numbers, they will tell exact day, month and year. The number will be like 3B14B where 3 is 1983, B is February, 14 is the 14th day and B is the day shift.

It is telling you that the current to the PMW (Pulse Width Modulation) solenoid that regulates the TCC (transmission torque converter) does not have a valid voltage. There could be a short in the solenoid its self or an open or short in the solenoid wiring.
