  • wires
  • What are these wires coming out of the transmission cover plate for? This is a 1974 Ford 3000. They were unhooked when I bought it. Guy I bought it from painted tractor and he painted wires also.

  • It's much safer to just buy the unit that allows the starter to work.
    Get a new gasket for the top plate also to prevent oil leaks.

    The unit is threaded, comes with wires that stick through the top plate, and
    is easy to replace.

  • I can't get your picture to come up.
    Keep getting an error mssg.
    But the two wires coming out of the top civer are for your neutral safety switch.
    The small stick (high/low)
    Is supposed to be in neutral before the engine will turn over with the key.
    They are kind of finicky so a lot of people just bypass them and hook the two wires that come down from the dash together which defeats the nss.
    Mine would rarely work properly so I disconnected it. Had to pinch the two wires from under the dash together to make it start. Worked fine as no one would know that. Not bad on a diesel but on a gasser where you have to fiddle with the choke you don't have enough hands to do all 3 things at the same time.

  • Ok thanks I suspected that since they come out of the top of the transmission case. I've looked at other pictures on the web of ford tractors like mine and do not see the wires at all that is what I got confused about. Any way they are unplugged. I never start a tractor unless I'm on the seat anyway. I have a buddy who got ran over starting it standing it standing in front of the tire. It was a 63 4000 tractor and broke several ribs. The tractor went through the back of the barn then before it stopped. He was in hospital for a few day.

    Reading the instructions in the forum on how to post pictures my photo bucker page doesn't have this as I copy and paste. I do not have available "Direct Link" for some reason.

    Now find the image in your library you want to display on one of the N Tractor Club forums. Click on it to open the image on its own page. Click on the "Direct Link" code of the image. This will automatically copy the link to your computerís clipboard.
