Well I went to look at what the owner thought was a Yanmar and came home with what turns out to be a Shibaura 14. The guy took it on a trade for a large tractor and wasn`t interested in keeping it. It comes with what I think is a Shibaura roto  tiller. Everything works and no smoke so I figured I couldn`t lose for 1500$. Looks like somebody has spray bombed the sheetmetal so no decals were visible and the metal tag didn`t match up with anything YM. After much digging I found a pic matching and some numbers that match the tag.

Any info or experience will be appreciated as well as website, etc where I could obtain parts/ info. I need to know approximate weight first to know how big a trailer I need to go pick it up.

I also found out thru the numbers that it is real close to a Ford 1300. Looks a lot alike too except for sheetmetal.  

Thanks in advance for any help !! Should be fun!

I'm not recognizing the number but maybe this will help?

I have a Ford 1500 built by Shibara, mine is 20 Hp and weighs 2,032 lbs not counting the ballast. We have hauled it a couple times on a 16 ft trailer  behind a Chevy 1500.  I could not be more pleased with my Shibara Built Ford. Think your going to like it.

 

Just reread your post and if it's close to the 1300 Ford here are the specs on that to get you in the ballpark.

( spend a lot of time on Tractor Data .com.

I`m working on getting some pics ....gotta figure out some stuff on`puter :wallbanging:

I think the Leo752b is something to do with engine...I`m thinking 752cc

seeing some numbers for Ford 1300 of Lek752c ???don`t know what the diff is ?

This tractor also has 2-speed pto and 2speed axle?

 

actually I started out wanting a Ford mid 1000 series but choked on the prices so this may work out well.

Well, I'm jealous!!!  Everything in that class around here is 2 to 3 times what you paid!!!  But, congratulations as well... hope you enjoy it.  Sounds like a close match to tractors built for the US market so support should be available.

I think I may be able to pin down which Ford it is close to by the wheel base. I pick it up Saturday so we`ll see then.

Picking up tomorrow

Wheelbase should determine which Ford is close. This is the one I bought ,what it should look like and a close Ford.

I can't remember if you alfeady told us the hp, but the "14 PS" stands for 14 pferde starke (German for horsepower) which is essentially 14 Metric HP. Most Japanese tractors are rated by PTO hp, not sure if this is the engine tag, or the tractor s/n tag.

The tag is on the frame....I believe the leo752b is the engine designation....I see similar #s listed on tractor data for the ford engine. The casting # is near the right foo location on tractor. Have no idea what info that would give !!

The pic of the tractor with the decals is one I found somewhere on the net

I think the tag is for Tractor model, serial # ,with the engine model and maybe serial for it. What I`ve found shows it as 14 hp

FIRST PROJECT

Fix the broken drain plug in radiator !!!

I finally got what was left of it out and it is odd....surprise surprise !!

Its made out of plastic with what appears to be a slot in the body of it. I have some pipe  thread plugs but 3/8 is too big and 1/4 is too small.

Anybody know if the radiator stuff is odd ball or any ideas

It is a Showa radiator

That will definitely be a metric plug.  You likely can find what you need at NAPA.  Sounds like  9 or 10mm.

If there is enough material you could drill and tap it for standard pipe threads. Maybe 3/8" NPT.

Ha...yeah you`d think after 40 years in the pipefitting trade I`d have at least one of everything......no metric pipe stuff......

things probably 3/4-7/8 inch long and ain`t figured out if the slot is intentional or damaged goods....almost to perfectly shaped to be random damage...

Stuck a cork plug in it and run it a little bit.

Little difficult to get started the first time.....seemed to start pretty good after its good and warm.

Not sure about the glow plugs and how long to charge them before starting. Seemed almost flooded when it did start.....puffing some pretty good smoke until it cleared out....then no smoke at all.

Didin`t run it much and it is a 4 speed ...2 speed axle. The pattern seems reversed from American stuff. Hour meter is running and say 593 hours.

Pretty pleased so far. It is a Shibaura  SRE2H Roto tiller and gonna need some work and tines but all there except tines :wallbanging:
