Try the link below.
Scroll through his items and you'll see nose cones.
Something odd about the dry vs wet pictures though as they show the same part.

Samuel
You can check this site here at YT, if they don't, other suppliers may sell them.
I got mine from Bill Crafton on eBay.

Just a word of caution - what yr is your 3000? '65-'68 noses are different than '69-'75.

'65-'68 have 2-piece grilles, and the bottom grille part wraps around the nose. I've included a link below with what is likely a '65-'68 tractor. Later yrs have one-piece grilles and those grilles are flat (but of varying designs, depending on year). The other link that you were previously sent is for a later-model nose.

New '65-'68 noses are NLA, as far as I know (though grille pieces are available). So, ebay, Craigslist, ag scrap yards, other forums are your friends if you have an early model.

I bought a front nose for my mid 68 3000 from YT parts. Aside from a lil had fitting on it to remove hydro cooler lines I didn't need, it was a nice fit and finish. Uses the single piece grill. I was/am quite happy with it.

So far as I know, there's only one repop grille shell listed for a 3000. As Chris found out, it accepts the one piece grille, which means it is actually a shell for a 2600/3600, as no 3000's had a single piece grille or front mounted oil cooler.

Sorry Sam.
I neglected to mention about there only being one grill available.
As long as you are OK with your tractor looking newer; it is a good fit.
Note: Grill and any hardware must be purchased separately.

oh yeah. Rick reminded me of something I forgot to mention.... there is also a bushing welded on at the lower bolt hole area on the right side you need to 'hand fit' IE remove along with the oil coolelr lines to make it bolt up to a 3000.. ewtc.

all in all 5 minutes of hand grinder work and it went on like a glove.

the 2600/3600 front end must be about 3/8" narrower.. and that's whyt he bushing is tack welded at the bolt hole area.

My tractor is a later model. The grill does not wrap around the nose.
