I was looking into getting a 5050 and was wondering if anybody could give me any advice or impressions of them. I run mostly old internationals and farmalls. I only know it's a diesel and runs. Thanks

Got a 5040 that my dad purchased new in the 70s. Still runs like a champ. I second that they are a bear to reprime after running out of fuel.

I might enhance Traditional Farmers reply, if my memory holds up. I "retired" from an AC dealer about the time AC died. The 5040 and 5050 looked very similar. The 5040 was a Fiat design, manufactured in Romania under license. The 5050 was made by Fiat in Italy. A little different in size, and the fit and finish appeared much nicer on the 5050. I don't recall any serious problems with either. I recall a Morelli starter which didn't like the cold. Any Lucas starter, likewise.

Fast forward- a few years back, I was looking to find something easier on the old body than an antique(confession). I found, and bought cheaply, a NH TT60A. I haven't done a side by side comparison, but it's just an old Fiat design with electrical and sheet metal updates. I went to change the front wheel tread, and couldn't get the tie rod to move. This, on a tractor with less than 500 hours! I pounded and heated a little, but decided to research before putting a lot of expense/effort into it. I got a complete new assembly for less than $70. I don't know if the new parts would fit the older tractors. But, given that they are made and sold all over the world, and have been for so long, there has to a much better chance of getting parts than there would be for something totally discontinued.

If Oliver had made a 3 cylinder 1365 the 5050 would be it basically the same tractor as the 1365 and the Long 460.Have to disagree with other poster on parts,they are one of the easiest tractors to get parts for around and they are very reasonably price.Import Tractor is an excellent parts supplier a long with many sellers on ebay and the web.I have a several of the
Fiat built tractors and really like them.New Holland/Fiat is still using the same basic design in may of their new tractors today

Fiat tractor, 50 HP. Had a 5040 and wish I'd never traded it. Parts may be a problem. They are a bear to get started if you let it run out of fuel.
