Electric Tractor Conversion Questions

I found a Ford 1300 tractor for sale that has a bad diesel engine. Does anyone know if this tractor is a candidate for conversion? I have a Ford 9n and I know that would be a challenge due to the fact that the engine is part of the frame, but I don't have any experience with the newer compact tractors.

I'm looking to move down to a smaller size tractor, plus this one has a loader on it. I have a small electric garden tractor (GE Elec-Trac E20) and have found I really like the electric unit, but it is too small for tasks beyond mowing and moving trailers, thus my desire for an electric tractor.
