I am putting a toggle switch in place of key start on my ford 3000 tractor..is this the best option?
Two of the above posters almost have it.
You have three ways to do this. You can use 2 switches and a relay.
1 single pole double throw, and one Push to activate self resetting. And a relay so the swithches wont fail due to power over flow through them.
The other way is a specialty switch and a relay, The specialty switch is off in down position, on in middle position, and when pressed up self resets to the on position.
The third and final way to do this, is to visit your local Ford dealership’s parts counter. You would be surprised to find out that most parts for anything with a ford name can be purchased there, including new key switches for tractors.
I have a 57 ford tractor 700series, I drained the hydraulic fluid what weight oil should i replace it with?
when i drained it, it looked like a heavy weight oil not hyd. fluid I dont know what weight to put back in the only hyraulics on this tractor is the 3 point hitch
I’m not sure what was in there before, but I’m pretty sure that ISO 32 Hydraulic Oil is what you should use.
I recently purchased a Woods 840 rotary cutter for my Ford 841. Tractor over heats quickly when running PTO . ?
Any suggestions as tractor HP is rated for cutter and cutter is not hard to spin?
Quite a few options here:
The oil pump drive may have sheared – does the oil guage work?
Main bearings wearing
not enough RPM to run the equipment
Specs for your brush mower:
120 HP gearcox with 16,000 fpm blade tip speed
2-plate slip clutch protection
what is the value of a 1952 ford red belly tractor or where can i find it?

52(ish) ford tractor won’t start?
52 ford tractor was running in august. tried to start it recently, it turns over fine…but doesn’t kick off. plenty of gas in the tank. there was some dirt in the cleaner, but i dumped it out. i put a voltmeter from the battery side of the coil to ground and got 4 to 5 volts. i put the meter on the distributor side of the coil (while cranking) and get this….the engine seemed to start kicking. does this mean the coil is shot?
Try some fresh gas or carb cleaner in the carb to prime it, if not, install new points and set the gap about 0.025 -0.030in..
Another trick is to run a jumper wire from the +battery to the + side coil just while cranking to get a hotter spark, but if left to long can burn the points…
