 Shibaura P21 tractor

My sister and I have recently purchased a Shibaura P21 tractor. We cannot understand the Japanese kanji written on some of the levers, etc. We would like to know if anyone has an English manual especially for the wiring/electricial aspect of this tractor.

You could take a photo of the labels to a Japanese, eg, restaurant.

Thanks for the suggestion. However, we live a really small town and the guy who owns the Japanese restaurant is American. Really looking for a translated manual.

You're not quite asking for the impossible, but it's getting close.

I don't think those machines were ever imported other than as "grey market" machines, so there was likely no 'official' translations made. They may have been however imported into places like Australia or other English-speaking countries over there.

Hopefully some of the import people like Greg will chime in on this thread.

Usually following a wire is less frustrating than trying to decipher a poor translation though.

Best of luck.

I also have a P21F. It is very similar the the Ford/New Holland 1320 - 1520 - 1720 series (which were built by Shibaura), but with a slightly different combination of components than any one of the Fords. Most of the operating controls are the same if you get a 1520 operators manual. The electronic control computer for the 3 pt lift and aux. (tilt) hydraulics are unique to the Shibauras. There are some photos with translated labels of an different model Shibaura on (I think) the yahoo gray market tractor club. They were helpful in figuring out how mine work.

Thank you so very much for your very helpful information and reply to our request on our new tractor. I will certainly try to find the gray market tractor club you mention on yahoo so my sister (who is the technical one of us two) can look at the photos.

Did you have any luck in finding the gray market tractor club regarding your Shibaura tractor. If you would please send me any thing to help me obtain a manual or something to decipher the japanese symbols.

Mine's an export model so has English control labels, but a bunch of Japanese ones plastered here and there. Had them translated; nothing of interest or importance.
