Ford 1000 diesel

I have an old Ford 1000 with a diesel engine. After mowing some fairly tall grass for about 1.5 hours, it blew a cloud of white smoke from under the hood. I shut it off almost immediately. Then, nothing. It wouldn't even crank. I'm not much of a mechanic, but willing to try. thanks for any ideas.

Re: Ford 1000 diesel

Oh, you mean their 'thousand series' tractors.... What year is the tractor? This it: http://www.tractordata.com/td/td2277.html

Any how, where did the while smoke come from? Near engine or radiator? You check your engine oil and coolant right? Were there any strange sounds or was the engine starting to act funny prior to the smoke?

White smoke could be the radiator going....basically over heated. And if it won't turn over.... maybe the head blew and the cylinders are full of water ( guess). That's why I asked about the coolent and oil. Oil will show signs of milky white if it leaked for a while or it will show green if it just went at the end.....

If you don't get lots of hits on this post, go over to tractorbynet.com and post under the "vintage section". Lots of people posting stuff about Ford 2000, 3000 tractors. I repowered my Ford 3000 last summer.

Re: Ford 1000 diesel

Thanks for the post and suggestions. I'm going to have time to check it out more carefully tomorrow. My Ford 1000 is a Mode A1012T, late 1974, I believe. It'u s more square than the picture at the site you provided. Thanks again.

Re: Ford 1000 diesel

Actually, that link didn't provide a pic.... don't know what that pic on the page was. I searched for a Ford 1000 and saw a shop manual pic on Ebay.... I think I've seen your tractor. Buddy from work has one, but I never looked close at the number it that was on the side.

Re: Ford 1000 diesel

sounds electrical. maybe a stick or something caused two wires to touch. check your starter selanoid to see if its fried.
