Hey guys I'm a Farmall tractor guy that has gotten a small ford. I know nothing about these little tractors and I'm looking for someone to help me out identifying which model it is. I have attached some pictures so you can see what I've got. I also have a picture of all the serial numbers and other numbers.

The reason for needing to know the model is because I have a problem with the steering and need to get some parts or ask how to fix if there is a way to adjust or easily fix the steering. The steering box has 1/2 round of play in it at the steering wheel.

Much help with this is greatly appreciated

If the top number on that tag is A1012T then it is a Ford 1000 (2 cylinder compact tractor made by Shibaura in Japan for Ford from 1973-1979) with a diesel engine, trans driven (non-live) PTO and a 9x3 manual transmission.

The serial number looks like it is U102993, which would mean that it was made in 1976.

Look at the steering arm on the left side of the steering column as you turn the steering wheel. If the arm doesn't move until you turn the wheel a considerable amount then there is wear inside the gear box in the base of the steering column. If the arm moves with the steering wheel but the front wheels don't start responding until you turn the wheel a lot, then there is wear in the external linkage and/or at the wheel spindle bearings and bushings. My guess, with a half of a turn of the wheel before there is any response, is that there is wear inside the gear box and in the linkage and at the spindles. Here is a link to the parts drawings for the front axle and steering parts for the 1000:

I believe you have an early model Ford 1000 your tag shows A?012T and the early 1000's were the only model that had a "0" in the third place of the model

A10XXX 1000 All purpose 1973 -

you will find parts almost non-existent for these very early Shibaura built Fords
