Hello I'm new here so I hope I do this correct. So I just bought a farm and there was a 1963 Ford 2000 sitting in the barn very good condition so I figured its worth trying to get it running. So I cleaned the tank the best I could without taking it off with the gas valve open it seems to run freely, basic carb clean, cleaned sediment bowl new plugs, wires, new battery (it is 6 volt). Turned the key and pushed the start button and fired right up idled great I idled it up to higher rpm ran great hydraulics for loader worked 3 point works it rans perfect for about 5 min. then died and wouldn't restart for a while about a half hour or so. any help with this would be great thanks.

Another possibility is a coil that is on its way out. They usually start having issues at higher temperatures first and then cooler and cooler temperatures until they don't work at all.

I'll second what sotxbill said. I've had the ignition switch fail twice on my 871, and both times, it acted like what your tractor did. If you have good fuel flow, check the spark right after it quits.

Can be a lot of things... but
most often its fuel flow as there are several screens that can slow down fuel flow and the bowl in the carb runs out of fuel. Afterwards it very very slowly trickles back into the bowl and after a time period, there is now enough gas to run it again till it runs the bowl dry.

Second... the ignition switch is know to get hot and after a time period, shut of the electricity to the coil. The coil or condenser can also get hot and cause problems, but less so.

SO... its imperative you check for spark right after it quits running... get a spare plug, pull one on the wires, and hold the plug against the metal of the engine with the wire on it while cranking it with the switch on... If that plug fires across the gap,,,, then you back to the first and most common problem. If you get no spark, then you need to start down that yellow brick road.

[...............then you need to start down "that yellow brick road"]......Beatles.....196X????? Amazing how those guys made fame and fortune singing about simple things around them. My favorite was "Yesterday". Did moonlighting when the kids were little in a TV shop and had a 45 of that as my Stereo test record. Never got tired of it.

I'll go for the trash in the fuel filters first too.

Today's Featured Article - It's Alright Where It Is! - by Anthony West. I have a tale of a different kind to tell. Whilst rooting in the hedge bottoms this week I had cause to visit Chapel lane Farm, the home of an eccentric gentleman by the name of Austin Kendall. I had heard rumours that an old Case Model C was languishing away in the back of one of the outbuildings there. So off I went in search of what would turn out to be a very rare and unusual tractor. Mr Kendall is an excitable chap to say the least. He is amongst the last of a dying breed of farmer who ... [Read Article]
