I looked at a tractor with a loader today, it was a fordson, and I couldn't find a plate with numbers on it, but I did find some casting numbers on the transmission next to where your right leg would be. It also was a 3 cylinder diesel engine. The numbers I could make out in the casting are these:

957E 7005 T3 H1

Maybe I don't have the 7005 right? maybe it was 7065? or 70G5? the third digit was hard to make out.
All in all this tractor looked decent, the guy said the steering was REAL loose which I confirmed, He said he would get it in and get it started and I could come by and test her out.
I need help figuring out what I have, and what I am going to need to fix possibly a steering box????????
Any help on where to find I.D. tag or numbers would help!!!!
Thanks for your help guys

957 designates a Fordson Dexta. They first came out in 1957. The serial number should be stamped up and down on the bell housing flange on the clutch pedal side.

I can turn the steering wheel when the tractor isn't running about 1/3 of the way around.
Are parts easy to find? And what about cost for parts?

For Dexta parts try "Bareco" or "Agriline" websites.
