Ford 4000 Conversion


Recommended Posts

Here's a few pics of my 1/16th Ford 4000 Conversion, built for Lanark 2011,

Its based on a UH 1968 Ford Force 5000, that has been cut and shut down to 3 cylinders, then the bonnet shortened down to suit, a cab and floor pan were dropped in place after being donated very kindly by a broken in transit UH Ford 7000, and then the rear wheel centres taken out of the original 5000 wheels and dropped into a pair of Fordson Power major rears, finally new decals and a bit of paint here and there to touch things up and it was declared ready for the table :)

First tractor i ever drove was a Delux cab 4000. Its still on the same farm (now belonging to my uncle) on yard scraping dutys & other light work. It was imported from England secondhand in 1986 threw Colemans of Millstreet ,Co Cork. Nearly half the farms in the area at the time ran ether a 4000 or a 4600 along with plenty of 5000s & 6600s also nocking around. The 4000 got a new lease of life about 3 years ago with a 4610 engine transplant.
