Picked this up, had to tow it to start, didn't take much to start it and it runs good. Need to repair the bucket but that's minor.    Looking for a starter for it Ford wants $1000 for one, That's more than I gave for it so would like to find one cheaper.

Nice looking Ford! Hope you enjoy it as much as I like my 1500!
Is there an automotive electrical shop in your area? More than likely they can rebuild it for much less than a new one would cost.
Also you could check an auto parts store, I find NAPA carries more tractor parts than you might think.
New Holland dealers should wear a gun when they hold you at the parts counter, it would seem more honest!

Yes 25hp 2 cylinder diesel

 

I took the starter off today, taking to get it checked out in the morning. Surprising how much it will lift I was comparing it to the 720 Allis (about the same size) but this will out lift and carry that

Yeah that is about 5 hp more than mine and about 500 lbs heavier. I do not have a loader but use mine every week if not more.

Those are a nice outfit.  Had one when I worked for the state many years ago.  About any electric motor repair place should help you out on that starter.

Hey I got out my Stevens Tractor catalog this morning. They are in Coushatta, Lousianna.
I have bought two water pumps from them.
They list the starter for the 1000 at $389.95 , I think that is still a load but they are available for less than a grand.
So check around.

A reputable starter repair shop should go through it for $150 or so.  You got a great deal by the way!

Took it down for testing today, PO overheated it and wiped out the solenoid. They called 3 suppliers and couldn't get the correct one.  He's gonna keep looking.

 Can't complain on the price  PO probably called Ford about a starter then decided the heck with it lol

Looks good.  I like those little Shibaru built Fords.  I currently have my one buddys 4WD 1100 Ford torn apart.  His needs a new clutch on it as it won't disengage and the travel is all used up.  Just for a new pressure plate and clutch disk and throwout bearing and a couple seals it's over $500.00  He got a smokin deal on his as well.  Tractor with a rear mounted Ford finish mower and the front mount snow blade for $1700.00.  Hoping to get the parts for it soon to get it back together for him before winter hits.
