    Ford tractor advice

    Hello, not sure if this is the right area to post this?
    Is anyone familiar with Ford 1520 tractors?
    Dads has broken down at the bottom of the property, it won't start so we need to tow it up the driveway. It is a hydrostatic transmission however, I know there will be a tow bypass switch or lever and a way to disengage the hydrostatic.
    I have been searching for days on the internet trying to find where these might be on said tractor but internet being dumb and rather give me information on the hydraulics Ford tractor advice

    If it's complete and can be got running, they are worth a decent quid still - offer them scrap value for it and see if you can get it running and flip it.

    I have a couple of fords, but they are the bigger tractors, which are actually ford. Yours and other small ford models were made by Shibaura of Japan, for Ford. You may have a bit of luck googling it as a Shibaura.

    My little JD ride on, has a lever poking out the rear end to disengage. A quick google about towing hydro tractors in general, suggests putting it into Neutral, if you have such a position..and towing at walking pace. I would confirm that with someone other than forums before doing it though.
