Replaced starter relay from Tractor Supply but tractor wouldn't turn off when started. Replaced key assembly and same thing happened. Returned and replaced starter relay with a new one. Tractor started when turned key and stopped when turned key off but it started when I turned key in either direction. Turned off when I notice smoke from starter. I thought I connected all wires correctly but can't locate correct wiring diagram. I can only find diesel 3 cyl. wiring diagram. Any ideas?

I have the FULL Ford Service Manual set. There is just ONE wiring diagram for both the gas and diesel. The ONLY difference is the diesel has a switch with four connections, the extra one is for the thermostart (glow plugs) needed for the diesel. One is used only for the "accessories" (dash gages) on the diesel but is the one also going to the coil in the gas tractor, as well. The other ignition switch connections are the one to the starter soleniod and the one that goes the the battery post on the regulator and to the light switch. Note the light switch is ALWAYS connected directly to the battery - it does NOT go thru the ignition switch.

I had to rewire my 3000 (same as the 2000 just a HP derated tractor for the "low end" of the thousand series) because the wiring was a mess - just enough to start it and keep it running, no charging of the battery or readings on the instrument gages. I ran the new wires over the gas tank to the starter soleniod. Mice decided to make a nest on top of the tank and chewed thru the insulation on both wires causing them to short. One day when I started the 3000 the starter would not stop running!! Luckily I had put arc welding disconnect plugs in the battery cables so I could remove the battery and lock it up when I went back to the city. So was able to disconnect the battery and stop the starter before any damage was done.

Thanks Larry. The whole wiring system is old and broken. I was thinking about replacing all of it. Okay, let me get this straight. The "b" on the key switch goes to the battery side of the soleniod. The "I" on the switch goes to the ground side of the soleniod side and the "acc" side goes to the gauges.

Hi Bud,
You would be much better off to ask this over on the Ford Board.
These guys here are pretty much limited to 6V, points driven Ns and are unaware that Ford even built other tractors.
