Dave, There is no chance I'll run into you at a farm sale. Haven't been to one in decades.
Don't remember the year, but my brother had a 900 with sos. He didn't have the issues dad had.
What did Ford do with my dad's 6000 Lemon? Did they put the new tranny in it and sell it as used?
When was the new and improved SOS made?
Were all SOS's in different models junk at that time, 1961-62?
In worst case, how much would it cost to repair the SOS?
Are there still mechanics around to repair one?
Are you likely to find a used SOS?
The only reason my dad bougth a 6000 was he needed a very slow speed and all the hp he could get to the PTO, silage chopper. George
