on How to Select Tractor Starters
The Ford 4000 Tractor was manufactured in a multiple variety of fuels, engine models and transmission types.The engine, for example, can be either diesel fuel, or LP gas. The diesel engine comes as the four (4) cylinder 172CD Diesel engine, or as the three (3) cylinders CID Diesel engine. The diesel engines were a latter addition to the Ford line of tractors, with the earlier models initially manufactured for gas. The gas engines were the four (4) cylinder 172 CID Gas engine, the three (3) cylinders 192 CID Gas engine, and the three (3) cylinder 201 CID gas engine.The starter for the diesel engines are typically larger and more powerful than the smaller gasoline engines, as diesel engines compressions needs to be overcome to initiate the starting process.The starter for the diesel 4000 engines is the 83981923. This is a 10 teeth clockwise (CW) rotation, Lucas Ford Tractor Starter that operates off of 12 volts (V). This one starter can be used on a multitude of machines, including the Ford backhoe 400 series and the 500 series, swather, TW series, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, 7000, 8000 and the 9000 series tractors. This Ford Tractor starter weights in at approximately 29 lbs.In Comparison, for gas engines is the D7NN11001A. This weighs 17.26 lbs, has nine (9) teeth, clockwise (CW) rotation, and operates off of 12 volts (V), and is used on several of the wheel loaders, and a multitude of tractors. The part number C3NF11002CR is identical in specifications to the D7NN11001A, and is used on similar gas tractors.The third type of Ford Tractor Starter is the C3NF11002DR, which is used with six (6) volts (V) systems. The specifications are 9 teeth starter drive and clockwise rotation (CW). This is the early starters that were manufactured with the starter solenoid as a separate part. The ford tractor solenoid for this starter is part number D8NN11350CA, and is sold as a separate component.
This six(6) volts (V) gas tractor is mainly used on the 500, 600, 700, 800, and 900 series tractors.
Most of these starters are manufactured by Lucas, and there are two different starter solenoids that are available, namely the part numbers D7NN11390B, and the E4NN11390AC, with the latter being used on diesel engines only, and the former that can be used on a combination of gas or diesel engines.
Replacement starter drives units are sold separately, for either the 9 teeth or the 10 teeth ford starter drives.
Starter Wiring Diagram
This is a picture of the basic principles of any starting system. Once the principles of the starting system can be understood, then any variations of the wiring can be easily understood. The basis principles are:-
- The Battery. In the tractor starter wiring diagram, the circuit starts with the battery at the left of the diagram. This is a negative ground battery system with the negative terminal of the battery connected by a black battery cable to the chassis of the tractor. The positive terminal will provide electricity to the electrical components of the tractor via red wires.In this tractor starter wiring diagram, there are two red wires leading from the positive battery terminal to the starting system. These will be discussed in more details in the sections below.
There are many positive ground wining systems as well. Some of the Ford 8N tractors use a positive ground 6 volt power system.
- From the battery, a heavy gauge red cable is attached straight to the starter motor. This is represented in the diagram s the thicker red line. In the diagram the thick red line connects to the solenoid, and then to the starter. However, in practice, this is heavy gauge red cable provides power straight from the battery to the starter. There are no switches or devices between the two. Thus, there is always a constant supply of currant from the battery to the starter.
- In step 3 above, there is always a steady supply of currant to the starter, however, the starter doesn’t engage because there is a solenoid mechanism that must engage before the starter circuits competes. This solenoid starter is, the small cylindrical object attached to the starter, is fed electrical power from the battery from a smaller gauge red wire, however the circuit is fitted with an ignition switch.
- When the ignition switch is turned, power from the battery flows to the solenoid. This kicks the solenoid out and completes two simultaneous functions.
One, it pushes out the engaging teeth in the starter which engages the flywheel and thus, turns the engine. Two, and at the same time, a circuit in the starter is completed (remember the heavy gauge red cable) which causes the starter to move (.i.e. “start”).
- The battery, starter, and solenoid must all be grounded to the chassis, which completes the circuits via the heavy gauge black battery cable.
These are the basic steps in the operation of the tractor starter wiring diagram. Any variations in the wiring will not alter the basic principles.

International Starter (s) are stocked for tractors, combines, cotton pickers, harvesters, sprayer, industrial/construction equipment, windrowers and swathers.
How to Choose International Starter for Tractors, Combines, Engines, Crawlers, harvesters, Sprayers, Windrowers and Swathers.
International starter for the 560 tractor is one of three types, and the correct International Starter is chosen for each based on the machine information.
Example 1: The first starter is a 24V starter. Other starters are12 volts each. This is the first information that is needed in identifying the correct international starter.
Example 2: Within the same three international starters above, there are starters for both gas engines and diesel engines. This is the second set of information that is needed, simply, does your machine work on gas or diesel? The earlier models of tractors used gasoline, and as diesel engine technology were introduce, the more reliable diesel engine slowly replaced the gasoline engine.
Example 3: what is the number of teeth that the engaging gear has? This is the gear that engages the flywheel to turn the engine. There are three different international starters for this engine, and two of them has nine (9) teeth, and one has ten (10) teeth. Knowing this further identifies the international starter needed.
Example 4: With reference to Example 4 above, two out of t he three starters has nine (9) teeth each. So, which is the correct international starter needed? In this example, both of the nine teeth international starter has different rotational directions. One is CW (clock wise ) and the other is CCW (Counter- clockwise). This added identification further identifies the correct international stater needed.
However, not all international starter identification are as complex as the above example. The International Construction Machine H25B only has one starter. This is a Delco Ramy international starter for gas engines.
The Crawler Dozer TD30, on the other hand, identifies another pertinent piece of information that is needed for international starter identification. This machine has two starters, one that is used on machines between the years 1959 to 1962, and another international stater that is used on machines between 1963 to 1967. Both are Delco Remy starters.
International Starter (s), when sourced from aftermarket supplies, can be any brand. Popular brands are Delco, Nippon, Denso, Electrical Parts, Caterpillar (some Allis Chalmers, Ford and Caterpillar, starters are interchangeable with International starters).
Summarizing, these factors should be known to identify the correct international starter.

on How to Select Tractor Starters
|How to Choose a Tractor Starter.There are several steps to choosing a correct tractor starter. These will be demonstrated below, using several models of agriculture equipment as examples. Example 1: Know the year of manufacture:How to choose a tractor starter for the Deutz D3006.
This is the simple manner in which to choose a Tractor Starter. The online catalog shows one tractor starter for the Deutz D3006, namely, the Bosch 12V / 2.4 kW. Even though there was a major serial number break in the manufacture of this tractor, both serial number breaks uses the same tractor starter.Example 2: Know the Voltage of the tractor starter.The popular Ford 2N, 8N, and 9N tractor starter comes in two voltages, namely the 6V and the 12V. Knowing which voltage starter that is on your tractor will determine which new tractor starter to choose.
Example 3: Know what Fuel Type Your tractor has.
The John Deere 3000 tractor has several types of tractor starter that are available. There are different types of tractor starter depending on whether the engine is a diesel or a gas engine. This info should be provided to your customer service representative to order the new replacement tractor starter.
Example 4: Know the Serial Number of the machine.
With the example able of the John Deere 3000, the correct John Deere tractor starter will also depend on the serial number of the tractor. The Diesel Engine uses two different types of Delco tractor starters. One tractor starter is for serial numbers below 238810, and the other tractor starter is for serial numbers above 238811. Both are Delco tractor starters, nine (9) teeth, clockwise (CW), and 12V. The serial number is the only determining factor in selecting the correct component.
Example 5: Know the engine model of your machine.
The Kubota M4700 tractor comes with two different engine models. There is a M4700 Kubota with a F2803 engine (from the years 1994-1999), and other models that were not manufactured in those years. Both Kubota tractor starter (s) are NipponDenso. In this case, there are two different Kubota tractor starter (s) that vary with the engine model and the year of manufacture.
Example 6: Combining the above mentioned examples.
The Massey Ferguson 165 Tractor, made in the USA, will have three (3) different types of tractor starter (s), depending on several factors.
The MF 165 tractor starter for Continental engines, Perkins Diesel engine, and the Perkins Gas engine all has different starters.
In Conclusion, Know the following information on your tractor to choose the correct tractor starter.
Tractor Starter (s) are stocked for Allis Chalmers, Cub Cadet, Cockshutt, Deutz, Leyland, International, New Holland, Ford, David Brown, IH, Case, Fiat, Gleaner, New Idea, John Deere, Massey, Massey Ferguson, Massey Harris, White, Oliver, Minneapolis Moline, Kubota, Perkins, Continental, and much more.

Tractor alternator are stocked for most models of tractors-Allis Chalmers, Case IH, Cub, Cub Cadet, David Brown, Deutz, Fiat, Ferguson, Ford, Gleaner, Massey Ferguson, Massey Harris, McCormick, Minneapolis Moline, New Holland, New Idea, Leyland, International, John Deere, Kubota, White, Oliver, and Zetor.
Tractor alternator should be first identified by a part number. This is the best way to order an alternator. The OEM number can be cross referenced to aftermarket supplies such as Niehoff, TISCO, Vapormatic, Dixee Electric, Delco Ramy, Prestolite, and Bosch.
Know Your Tractor Alternator:-How to Order a Tractor Alternator without an OEM part number.
In most cases, when ordering an alternator, the farmer or mechanic does not know the OEM part number. This presents a challenge.
However, with these basic guidelines, the correct alternator can be sourced.
With some tractors, all models will have one alternator. With this situation, then the tractor alternator identification is simple.
With other tractors, like the David Brown 990, then other information needs to be gathered.
The tractor alternator section for the David Brown 990 shows two (2) different items that can be chosen. There is an alternator, and a generator. Some of the early models of the David Brown 990 used a generator (which produces direct current (d.c)), and the latter models which used alternating current, or a.c current. So, the question becomes, what do you have? A generator or an alternator? Answer that and your current device will be chosen.
Some tractors, however, are more intriguing. The Ford New Holland 2910 for example, shows three (3) different alternators available.
On close examination, all three alternators are 12V, however, produces varying amperage of 37, 45, and 51 amps. In this example, the old alternator needs to be looked at and the amperage identified. With that information, the correct tractor alternator can now be chosen.
The tractor alternator for the John Deere 3010 presents another challenge. The online catalog shows two different alternators, however, one is for a gas engine, and the other is for a diesel engine. The earlier models of the 3010 were gas engines. What is significant of the diesel engine is that it’s a 24V alternator, as compared to the 12V generator. The latter models of tractors began to operate off 24V systems that provide power for high torque diesel engines, air conditioning systems, and other electrical devices.
The tractor alternator for the Massey Ferguson 265 presents another challenge. The online catalog shows two alternators available, and both are 12V/42Amps. The only distinguishing factor for this tractor is the serial number of the tractor. The models are either before or after 9A349239.
In summary, these factors need to be identified to properly select a tractor alternator.
