I read the below comment in "Help Identify". I didn't know the Japanese had made Ford tractors. When did they first start that? Were they made over seas? Know what models they made? Guess jobs have been leaving this country for a long time.

"Comments for Unknown Model Ford Tractor

Dr. Ed wrote on Friday, February 04, 2011 (PST):
That is a Ford 1600 made by Shibaura with a Shibaura 2 cylinder engine with 18 hp drawbar and 23 hp PTO, made 1976 to 1979. Shibaura was founded in 1950 as a joint venture between Toshiba and Ishikawajima Harima Industries (IHI). The company started with the manufacture of engines and garden tractors, and began building compact tractors in 1961. Shibaura built several models of compact tractors for Ford-New Holland. Shibaura has made compact FORD/NEW HOLLAND tractors for years and have built up a reputation of fine quality. Dependable Shibaura diesel engines put out extra muscular power particularly at lower rpm's with less noise and vibration, and the SD & SP models are considered to be some of the strongest pulling tractors on the market. Now you know -- they are Japanese built not "Chinese Best". Probably a good tractor."

Shibaura started making Ford tractors back in the late 70's or early 80's. I believe they started with a 1100, 1200, 1500 & 1900. Then they updated them and they became the XX10 series- 1210, 1510, 1710, 2110, etc. They ended with the XX20 series- 1520, etc.
The smallest ones were 2 cylinder diesels, the medium ones had 3 cylinders and I saw a 2110 at an auction last weekend and it was a 4 cylinder.
