Tornado and storm water flooded Shop, Tools, lawnmowers, tractors, everything. Today worked on 3000 diesel ford. Drained Oil and ton of water drained before oil came out. Pulled injecters spun motor to free of water on top pistons. reinstalled injectors as best I could. Cranked tractor drove it 40 yards to where I could pressure wash it off. Need advice on where to drain and flush the following:
1. Power Steering system 2.Any lift or Hydraulic fluids 3. Clutch fluids as now clutch quit working although was before flood?
Any other flood/water advice appreciated?

I'm glad you or your family weren't harmed by the storm. Drain trans/differential. IIRC 3000 has a hyd oil suction screen & now would be a good time to clean or replace it. Clutch should operate correctly after it drys.

If you don't know where the drains and fill spots are for the transmission, power steering and rear axle/hydraulics sump, you need an Operator's Manual at the very least.

Transmission drain and rear axle/hydraulic sump drain are under the tractor. Rear axle/hydraulic fill plug is the large hex head plug on top of the differential housing on the right side, under your right butt cheek when you're sitting on the tractor. The fill point for the transmission depends on which transmission it has. Where the power steering reservoir is located and how to drain and fill it depends on whether it is the earlier style with the reservoir up above the pump body or the later style where the reservoir is integrated into the body of the pump itself.

Besides all of that I would also drain any water out of the steering gear (lower half of the steering column) and fill with fresh gear oil or corn head grease, plus I would grease all zerks (grease fittings) until new clean grease is coming out of the overflow areas. The locations of all of the grease zerks are listed in the maintenance section of the Operator's Manual..

Is there a hydraulic screen or filter located on the left side of the lower housing behind the running board? How do I remove it
if there is and how to clean? I noticed a round cover on the side of the housing and was wondering if there is a screen or filter
there?

That round cover should have the PTO handle on it unless it has a Select-O-Speed transmission. Whether it has the PTO handle or not, there are no serviceable screens or filters accessible via that cover. The hydraulic pickup tube inside has a metal screen that is meant to be cleaned and re-used. The return line has a paper filter cartridge on the end that is meant to be replaced. Both the pickup screen and the return line filter are only accessible via puling the top cover at the least, and might also possibly require a split of the tractor between the transmission and rear end.
