Leo, I was very young when my dad bought a red 6000, 1961-62??. I think the red ones were the first. Ours spent more time having the SOS repaired than it did in the field. Things were so bad, after a few years, Ford gave us an new blue 6000. It had a better tranny. Ford was so cheap, they gave us a new tractor, but we had to put our old tires on it.

If I got my colors right, red was the first. All I can say is RUN FOREST RUN!

To this day, I wouldn't have an SOS. 2 reason, most of the old mechanics that worked on the SOS are long gone. Secondly fool me once shame on you. SOS = SOL

Just because they are rare, doesn't mean anything. George

My Dad bought a 6000 in 62. I was a Freshman in high school and thought a brand new tractor was cool. Man talk about a pile of dog poop.

We are about the same age. I graduated in 67. It was the last Ford my dad bought.

We had a dairy. Dad thought of his as a BIG bile of COW Poo.

I think many tractor had issues when they used parts off the shelf to make next model tractor with more horse power. My Jubilee is just one of them.

I think Farmall used the old M drive train and put a bigger engine in front of it when they went to the number series.

Chevy got in to trouble using a gas engine block in their attempt to make a diesel.

The list of mistakes could go on forever.

My lesson from this is not to buy a new car or truck with some new engine or tranny design. I wait for the consumer to do the R&D and the company to fix it.
