Default Ford 2000 tractor

Friend of mine I had not seen in a few years came by the shop to visit and brought along a Ford 2000 gasoline tractor. Has the 3 cylinder engine. Told me the lift doesn't work and asked if I'd be interested in buying it. So maybe....just maybe this will be the farm tractor.

I have all the sheet metal and it has a seat in good shape. Drive it around a bit. I think it's a better repair candidate then the 9N.

Depends, slightly more horsepower, about 35 versus about 22.

The three cylinder engines were ok, but having done things like water pumps on them, that is a royal PITA job to do.

The lift not working could be a simple, cheap repair, or expensive, depending on what the issues are. Worst case scenario is if the hydraulic pump is pooched, guessing a new one these days would be 2-3K.

You never mentioned price, but IMO, as it sits, I wouldn’t pay much more than a thousand bucks or so.

Also slightly newer that the old flathead 4. If the little rod linkage to the lift arm, I think it is called draft control, has become unhooked that would stop it lifting. My Kubotta has it on the outside of the case and some others are inside the shell.

Here's a look at the mess.

The 2000 would be a better tractor by far than the little 9N. Way more usable machine.

So he didn’t ask if you wanted to buy it, you actually bought it…. slightly different scenario.

Parts are plenty for the 9N and they are simple to work on. I’d still fix it up and that should help you get a better bang for your buck if or when you resell it.

The 2000 I would try to figure out the lift issue before much else, if the pump is toast then you can see about sourcing one, or depending on that, part it out, whatever.

What happened the 135?

Would have even better parts availability than the 2000. (Apart from different approaches to controlling the hydraulic lift they're almost identical under the paint)

Nah, nowhere near that bad. Same engine mounted pump was used from the 2000 all the way up to the 8830. every thousand, 600, 10 series, or TW and 30 series has, or could have one.

Common as dirt so cheap as chips. 400 euro plus tax here: https://www.dhfarmmachinery.com/prod...tml?filter_set[]=1093,55355&filter_set[]=869,38654,38659,38799

Sold it a while ago. Got someone coming to look at the 9n tomorrow evening hopefully.

Rebuild kit for the pump is about $70.

With the lift not working where should I start looking? It's in the same shape it was bought with the lift cover unbolted and the lines to the pump loose.
