    Charle, I have the full Ford Tractor Service manual for the 65 & up 2000/3000/4000 etc. The manual steering gear rebuild procedure is 5 pages. I can scan them in if you would like to have a copy.

    wschaftl, That is very generous of you and would be much appreciated. You could forward them to this email address charlesderek34@gmail.com Or if you don't wish to use your email perhaps you could post them on this thread as jpg's.
    Many thanks again,
    Charle

    Soundguy, Thanks for your comments. You can say that again. And doubly confusing when my Operator's Manual which came with the Dexta (I assume the original) is dated November 1964, marked for export and was printed in the the UK, shows a steering box which can be filled with oil via a filler plug on its side. But when I consult the Dexta/Super Dexta workshop manual it shows a different steering box with no filler plug.
    Mechanics not being my strong point I want to be sure of what vehicle/steering box I am dealing with in order to obtain the correct workshop manual, and spares, for servicing the steering box. It looks to me as if this is a late production Super Dexta in which they installed a steering box from the upcoming 1965 Ford 3000.
    I have the exploded view of the 3000 steering box but will feel more confident with the workshop manual. And wschaftl has kindly offered to scan the the rebuild pages for me.
    Cheers, Charle

    no in the uk they had some 1964 model 2000-3000-5000 and the 2000 was a dexta 2000 and the 3000 was a super dexta 3000 so what you most likely have is a early model 3000

    whodat526, the decals on my tractor shows it to be a Super Dexta 3000; also there is a decal on the lhs with 3000 on it. I am unable to find the Dexta series number in the location described in the Operator's Manual or at other locations described in various web pages and forums. The only numbers I can find are barely discernible at the location described for the Ford 3000, rhs just behind the starter, (FORD CODES and SERIAL NUMBERS) but they don't make sense to me:

    5H26P
    10-5-0(this zero is?)
    607121

    Also there is a foil plate, which I take to be a vehicle identification plate, riveted to the lhs steering box cowl ; again the numbers are meaningless to me:

    3B46 60 93000
    600753 ND076012J105

    Any ideas what these mean?
    Thanks,
    Charle

    it is a 3000 the dexta had a perkins diesel and a different style hood that is the very first production of the 3000 you have when ford was changing over from the dexta style to the 2000/3000 style like you got

    what is the numbers stamped on top of the bellhousing where the starter bolts on

    whodat526, those numbers I have given are from the bellhousing just behind the starter.
    5H26P
    10-5-0(this zero is?)
    607121

    I tried to photograph them but they don't come out very well. I'll see if I can get a clearer shot.

    Charle, my serial numbers do not make sense either. There are two numbers on the LHS, the outside one (s/n) is clearly B802033B175 and the inside one is very hard to read - looks like 5B01B. The engine s/n on the RHS is clearly LD014117B5 which indicates a 2000 series with a Feb 1965 build date.

    I have attached pictures of my progress on the rebuild. The new steering gear, tie rod ends, axle knee and bushings are back on and the engine has been painted. Outside tin was painted today and is hanging while drying.

    Will start cleaning and painting the wheels and fendors next.

    Thanks for that whodat256, I've got a 'newer' tractor than I thought. All these years I have been thinking of it as a 64 model.

    wschaftl, gratifying to know that someone else is confused by their serial numbers. I haven't even found my engine s/n yet. Your work looks very impressive. You won't want to get it dirty after this. I'm not going that far, just rebuild the steering assembly. Shall have to find a source of spares in Aus before I start.
