I have a Ford 4610 diesel that is a 1987 model I believe. I have absolutely no power. I pulled the front end forward a little to replace my oil pan and now no power. The ignition does not work nor do the lights. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The parts listing for the electrical system lists fuse box, but it doesn't actually show what it looks like or where it is on the tractor.

I really don't think it would be a fuse though. You say that you moved the front end forward to drop the oil pan. The headlights are part of that front end that you moved forward, and the headlight wires are connected to the main wiring harness, so I agree with sotxbill that you may have tugged on the front wire harness to the point where something came disconnected. The front wire harness and the rear harness come together right by the voltage regulator, so I would look at the connection between the two harnesses as well as all of the connections on the regulator, even disconnect all of them, and check for breaks in individual wires where they're crimped to the individual contacts inside the plastic connectors, make sure everything is bright and shiny on the contacts, give all of the contacts a good coating of dielectric grease and put them all back together again and see if that helps.

Thanks but I can not locate a fuse box anywhere! I've just about exhausted all options. Does anyone have a picture of what the fuse box would look like? I don't see anything that resembles any sort of fuse box. :-(

looking right over the battery, yours might still have the plastic cover over it

You may have unplugged the forward wiring harness from the rear wiring harness... look for square plug, under hood, at top of the gas tank where the two harnesses plug together.

Very simple trouble shooting should find the problem. #1 check that the battery has a full charge.
#2 check cable connections at the battery.
#3 check that the battery cable connections at ground and at the solenoid are good.
#4 check any and all fuses and make sure the year good if it has any.
#5 make sure you did not pinch any wires when you where working on it which could cause a short.
#6 make sure you have power to the switch and that you have power to the battery cable at the solenoid.
#7 make sure you have the shifters out of gear so that the safety switch are not making you look for things

I replaced one fuse behind the instrument panel. Couldn't find any more. Are there others?
#5 make sure you did not pinch any wires when you where working on it which could cause a short.
I don't think I did. Did not find any wires that look like they could have been pinched. #6 make sure you have power to the switch and that you have power to the battery cable at the solenoid.
Checked. Power is good at the solenoid and grown is solid. #7 make sure you have the shifters out of gear so that the safety switch are not making you look for things.
Checked. Would this still cause the lights to not come on?

If the starter was bad would this cause the lights to not come on?

Thanks

Make sure it is out of gear then try a jumper across the big solenoid posts and see if it will spin the engine over. If it does then the problem is from the solenoid back ot the battery and maybe a simple unplugged harness. Be careful since it could start up when you try that jumper

I believe you have a fuse panel that is between the fuel tank and the battery, swing out your battery and look for a small square cover that has a couple of screws holding it on.
