Ford 3000 Diesel, 1975 - installing wiring to the starter

Ginny Help! My guys have been basically rebuilding this tractor after it caught fire last fall. Cause of the fire is unkown and it was not in use at the time it burned. It had been working great until it burned. All has gone well on the rebuilding with help of the manuals up to the point of installing the starter wiring. They can't find a way to wire the starter. It is a 5" starter and the original wiring is too badly burned to visualize correct placement of the new wiring. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks. Ginny
Steve I can mail you the wiring diagrams if you send me an address, Steve
Ginny Hi Steve,
Thank you so much for your reply and your offer to mail the wiring diagram. Since my original post, my son has ordered a new and larger starter for the tractor, which may solve the problem. It seems the other starter which was on the tractor at the time it burned was not the right starter to go with the wiring recommended in the manual, so had at some point been changed from the original. I will ask him if he would like the diagram mailed to him and let you know.Thanks again.

Dennis A Cubbage Steve, I saw this predicament, and am just about in the same boat. Have got'70 model FORD 3000, diesel, w/generator,w/manifold preheater. Wiring harness shorted out, burnt wires, but not tractor. Bought new master harness,but no directions. Some can figure out,,,,but! Could you possibly send me e-mail of schematic or spec drawing of wiring layout, especially around voltage reg., tach,key switch,etc. Would really appreciate it, THNX! DAC

Jerry Stevens Question??
1975 Ford 3000 Diesel
Positive ground? Negitive Ground?

Magnus Reply to Jerry Stevens:
On my grandfathers Ford 3000 It's negative ground. =)
If your tractor turns out to have positive ground, something I don't find very likely, I'd seriously consider changing that.

Shane Snoddy I have a 1971 Ford 3000 Diesel I have been working on. I have bought a complete wiring harness, voltage regulator, and battery for it. Did not come with wiring diagram. wire colors do not match old harness. Cannot find one on internet. Does anyone have a wiring diagram they can send me? Thanks

Bob Mccay Just installed new wiring harness on my 1970 Ford 3000 Tractor after it caught fire somewhere close to the voltage regulator. Everything went well and it cranked right up. After running a few minutes it began smoking around the voltage regulator and I shut it off. I unplugged the hot wire from the generator and started the tractor, I let it run for 20 minutes and there was no smoke. Any ideas what I did wrong?
Eric Yes, Steve if you can email me the schematics I would appreciate it.. I have a 73 Ford 3000 and need them to wire up the ignition switch and starter..

My tractor also has an alternator. Do you have a diagram for the wiring harness. I have a manual for a generator but not for an alternator.
