Does anyone have a wiring schematic for a 1964 ford 4000 tractor?My tractor is 12 volt and the alternator has 2 wires coming from it.Or I would be very happy if someone can tell me where I can get a book with it in it.

If you have a alternator your tractor is not stock so no book diagram will help you. I have drawn many diagrams for the delco 10si alternator conversion.

So if your alternator looks like this........

then you might find a diagram that will work for you by looking Here.

Let me know if you need more help.

Thanks to John in LA there are many drawings that should work. Look through the archives to find them.
Use the one for an 801. Your 4 cyl 4000 is just an updated 801.
That said the wiring for your 4000 is quite simple. I completely rewired mine and it works great. I did the following.
The + wire from the battery goes to the solenoid. The - goes to ground.
I used a #10 wire from that same post to go to the alternator. A second #10 went to one of the posts on the junction block.
A #10 wire from the same junction block terminal to the light switch provides power there.
The ignition switch has 2 wires, one on each of the junction block terminals.
From the second junction block terminal, I ran wires to the coil via a ballast resistor, the "I" terminal of the Solenoid, to the fuel gauge via a fuse, and to the alternator via a warning lamp I mounted in the holder in the dash. I powered my Volt meter from the wire i ran to the Fuel gauge.
From the S terminal of the solenoid, you need a wire that runs to the starter push button on the transmition (mine is the 5 speed).
As before the wire on the other post of the Solenoid runs to the Starter.
I found a 2 position light switch at TSC that had a fuse built into it. I put the headlights and lights in the volt, fuel, and Tach meters on the "low" setting. I put a Tail light on the "high" position.
I had added a volt meter before by cutting another 2 inch hole in the dash. So I have oil, Volt, Fuel, Temp, Tach and a warning light for the charging system on the dash.
If you have questions just ask.
Good luck

If your 4000 has a gas engine it was originally 6V Positive ground with a generator. If it's a diesel it wa originally 12V Negative ground with a generator.

Look on the New Holland website under parts & service. One of our friends a couple of posts down recommended it to someone & that reminded me where I got my wiring diagram & schematic. Good Luck.
