Hello Again James , If one had the opportunity to build the perfect main supply tube (AS FORD WOULD HAVE NEVER DONE)for this application . As quoted by you all the while you are FORGETTING THIS WAS DESIGNED IN 1959 (before you were born)(before carbon fiber was around) , 55 YEARS AGO , WHILE THE ENTIRE PRODUCTION RUN OF S.O.S's lasted until 1976 , MILLIONS OF TRANS. WERE BUILT and are STILL RUNNING TODAY . Built by a Family who put their NAME on their products of CARS , TRUCKS , TRACTORS building millions of units , cost effectively to sell to the average consumer , and you got the balls to complain that it only lasted for for 55 YEARS because they did not design it CORRECTLY , Why don't you show me something built TODAY that will last for 55 YEARS ? I bet you won't find anything that will . Go back to your 9N/2N/8N tractors that have been around 70 YEARS do you think that was accident and poor engineering too ? YEAH , AS FORD WOULD HAVE NEVER DONE ! I guess ignorance is bliss .

YOU, my friend, have a serious problem.
If you were as astute as you claim, you would have immediately recognized that it was NOT James that posted what you responded to. JCHAMP was the curious one and *I* happen to be damn near as old as the tractor in question thank you very much.

And as to your irrational screed, only a fool would believe that a manufacturer would intentionally design a vehicle to last 70 years. Luck, production numbers, parts availability, sheer determination and ingenuity of their customer base deserves much more of that credit in this context. I would love to expound on why but I'm afraid it might be over your head. I'll simply take you at face value and hope that your purported experience level will aid you. If you need a clue, another key part of the answer is, right there, in your very own post.

Relying on that may be a fools-bet on my part however, as though you claim to be of my age, it seems you soil threads, unprovoked, more like an angry 13yo. I don't expect to be surprised.

No I don't have any serious problems that I know of . Yes you are CORRECT I did not notice the ii's missing so my APOLOGIES go to James . If you were astute and as old as you claim you would know that there was A LOT MORE GOD D*** PRIDE IS THIS COUNTRY in what people did and said , manufacturers built , what reputation meant to people and business , than what goes on today . I never said that any manufacturer(even Ford although you should enlighten yourself and read about Henry Ford and see how much of his own money was spent and lost building tractors to help out the Farmer do his job easier) made product to last 70 years BUT they also did not computer engineer it so cheap as they do today just so that it will last long enough to get past a warranty period MAYBE without problems and or design EVERYTHING to be THROW AWAY ITEM as they do today and FORD DEFINATELY did not purposely design the S.O.S with inferior parts in 1959 , they did HOWEVER not test the trans. long enough to find the problems with it before it went into production . As far as ingenuity goes with S.O.S TRANSMISSIONS (and I speaking about nothing else in the world EXCEPT this transmission) goes MOST that are still running today are on original parts and do so from a HANDFUL of guys all over this country who have kept them running all these years . Production numbers , parts availability , sheer determination or course have all played a part in it also the only LUCK in this case is the owner finding a good mechanic who could work on these trans. Nothing is over my head and I do not care what you take at face value because this is not a politically correct kindergarden class to make everybody feel warm fuzzy and make sure nobody's feeling are hurt about how they are going to fix their tractors so there is no unprovoked soiled threads as you claim.
