I fix appliances not tractors. I swapped a guy a Speed Queen top loader for a non-running 1967 Ford 3000. Thanks to the info on this forum and YT parts the tractor is purring like a kitten. You guys are awesome. So I’ve scanned info for how to size a loader for tractors and think I need to put this specific question out there - see photo: this DuAL loader is on a Farmall 560. Owner says loader model # can’t be found. Will it bolt up to my Ford? The cross piece that attaches to the frame of the Farmall has me worried. There is no similar place on the Ford to bolt it to. Question #2 is where to get specs on fitting loaders to the size and stature of the tractor?

The loader from the 560 is way too big for a Ford 3000. Depending on your location, you may be able to find a much better loader for your 3000, one that was actually designed for it.

Where are you located? I took a working loader off my 3000 and don't really want to put it back on. Ail should be open.

Thanks for the info both of you. And, jchewie - I’m out west in Colorado - 30 minutes north of Fort Collins near the Wyoming border. Tell me you’re just
up the county road a mile or two :)

I'm in W.TN if that's closer and looking for a loader for my 3000.

Best to get a tape measure and a careful comparison. A Google search for 19-512 loader will have a PDF link for a general operator manual but no blueprint dimensions.

I'm in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula.

Will a loader from a 3000 fit a 4cyl 4000?

I don't think that it will be a direct bolt-on swap, but some loaders spanned the 4 cylinder and 3 cylinder series time frames and had separate mounting kits for each.
