Don't try to pull start it, may tear out the worm drive. Easiest way is to belt up a running
tractor to your Fordson to spin it over. That is if your Fordson has a pulley and if you have
access to another tractor that has a belt pulley on it. My 2 cents worth Greg NE

One easy option would be to pull/push start it.
Does an F have a belt pulley? If so I have seen other Fordsons
belt started from another tractor. Also seem them converted to
electric start by putting a flywheel in place of the belt pulley
and building a bracket to mount an electric starter.

Does it have a pulley that you could use to belt up to another tractor? We have a 1923 Fordson also, and they are not an easy starting
tractor,but fun to drive when they do get started.

As Cushman suggests, belt it to another tractor.

Pull starting a Fordson is problematic due to the worm gear final drive.

You'll need to block the tractors so the belt stays tight. Also, you may have to twist the belt to get the right direction of spin. You should have a helper. You'll be leaning over
the belt to adjust choke, ignition, etc., so be careful. Look at computer videos for ideas.
