    Default Ford 1500 Tractor Ignition Tumbler (Novice Operator)

    Active duty military member settling down for retirement and I just purchased a 1983 Ford 1500 diesel tractor. It's in great shape, however, the key is cracked and bent. Looking for some tips on how I can easily remove the ignition tumbler.

    Thanks in advance.

    To the best of my knowledge, on the order of a dozen Ford/New Holland tractors, they all use the same key. If your only problem is a mangled key head to the local NH dealer or Messicks Parts for Tractors & Equipment and get a new one. Heck Lowes , in some areas may have them. If you are bound and determined to replace the tumbler head to the NH dealer or Messicks and buy a new switch assembly. Just be prepared to pay careful attention to the wire orientation and order...there are a bunch of wires.

    I have a Ford 1100 that I have purchased 3 times, and it still uses the original key that it had with it when I first used it, back in the mid 80's. It has a small screwdriver, that stays in the thumb hole of the gas lid, ready to start the old girl up when needed. Same screwdriver has gone with the tractor and came back home every time it has left here.
