i need to pull the motor on a ford tractor?

i need to pull the motor on a ford tractor
it is a 3 cyl diesel with a big motor mount on the front
do i have to take the axle loose to get the mount off

Doug answers:

We normally break the engine from the transmission first and while the engine is hanging from the hoist disconnect it from the front end. Use several men familiar with this engine. Don’t forget to lock the rear wheels to keep the rear out of your way. Wheels left on. A second hoist is particularly handy to keep from getting hurt.

Sandra asks…

Why did The Ford Motor Company cease publishing The Ford Almanac?

It was a wonderful publication, especially suited to people who bought Ford trucks and tractors for rural use. And even urban people love almanacs and find them useful. So why did they stop publishing it?

Doug answers:

The last issue I saw is for sale online is for 1981. I assume there just wasn’t enough people buying them or subscribing to them anymore. It was probably a niche market to begin with and because it catered to the rural community when corporations and large companies started buying up farms from families that could no longer afford to keep them and making them into these mega farms, there just wasn’t the same amount of people buying the almanacs any more. The decline of periodicals is most evident today with subscriptions that are down across most publications that come out on any scheduled basis. It’s sad, but with the digital age and the written word in it’s classic printed form is just not as popular as it once was.

Carol asks…

Ford 5000 Tractor worth fixing?

My uncle has an old ford 5000 tractor he is not using and we need to buy a tractor to bush-hog around my grandmothers house. The PTO on the tractor does not work. Should I get this tractor from him and try to fix the PTO or is it better to buy a used tractor that works good. I can probably get the tractor for free. I have read that the ford 5000 was one of the best tractors ford made.

Doug answers:

If you can get it free get it. Now the pto issue, im guessing its going to have a clutch and the linkage to it are bad. Far as i know the pto on that was straight thru,meaning when engaged took power directly off motor crankshaft.could have a bad shifter on it, inside the tranny. My guess if when you engage it and dont hear a grinding then youve got a bad linkage setup easy. If it goes in and pops out or grinds, bigger problems.remember ptos usually have a clutch like a car and sometimes the linkage is exteral and if bent wont release the clutch.
Tractors are expensive. Be prepared, get some lube, sorry been there done that.btw just cause a pto wont engage running dont mean you cant shut it off and as the engine slows to a stop, shove it in gear and restart.

Sharon asks…

What type of Head Gasket Sealant should I use on a 3 Cyl Ford Diesel Tractor motor?

Doug answers:

Never use any sealer on any head gasket on any engine diesel or gas never on fords like 3900 series if your replacing the gasket you better have the head checked for warpage most of them need milling

Sandy asks…

What type of Head Gasket Sealant should I use on a 3 Cyl Ford Diesel Tractor motor?

Doug answers:

It should be put on dry .
If you are having trouble with the gasket moving before you can get it in place we sometimes use to use a dab of grease on either end so it would stay .
The gasket is what seals the head you don’t need sealant .
The heads are too hot for sealant and give you a false sense of doing the job right until it starts to leak.

Ford Tractors

Ford Tractors

Raised on a farm, Henry Ford had a personal interest in the creation of a small tractor for farmers. His first tractor, built mainly with auto parts in 1907, was known as an “automobile plow”. This early experimental vehicle can be seen today at the Henry Ford Museum.

With shareholders of the company sceptical about the prospects of a tractor, Ford had to set up a company Henry Ford & Son, in order to get into the business of Ford tractors. His first model, the Fordson F, left the assembly line in 1916. It had a four-cylinder engine, a three-speed transmission, and an affordable price of $ 750. In this Ford tractors replicated their achievement in the automobile market by producing the first low cost mass market tractor

Ford tractors came just at the right time. When the First World War broke out in 1914, tractors quickly assumed much greater importance. The war drained manpower from the farms around the country, while dramatically increasing demand for food. An affordable, mass-produced tractor was just what Uncle Sam needed to keep agricultural production at high speed. The Depression put an end temporarily to the production of Ford tractors in the U.S., but the growing demand in the Soviet Union prompted Ford to keep the tractor manufacturing plant in Cork in Ireland. Back in the U.S. Ford Henry made a “handshake” agreement to produce a version of the Ferguson-Brown tractor developed by fellow entrepreneur Harry Ferguson. This was the beginning of the Ford “N” series of tractors, beginning with the model 9N.When materials were scarce during the Second World War, a modified version was developed 9N-2N-dubbed “the steel” to preserve materials needed for tanks and ships.

Mr. Ford died in 1947, leaving his grandson Henry Ford II in the control of the Ford Motor Company. Henry Ford II made clear his intentions to take control of the tractor market after the Model 8N (a 9N/2N improved). This rapid movement forced Ferguson’s company to embark on one of the longest and most expensive claims in the history of the nation. Ford tractor had eventually to pay a massive $9.25M to Ferguson for the infringement on his patents. As a result Ford was forced to change the hydraulic system and some other items to avoid further patent infringement of Ferguson’s design. The Ford NAA, also called the Jubilee, was launched in 1953 with these new features.
