the 125 was used in the model B and C tractors. you can probably use a starter, flywheel, and maybe clutch off one of those tractors. THe bell housing on the B-C is part of the torque tube... probably wil not work without some drastic modification.

I think you will be looking for the B-125 stationary version bell housing. These should be easier to find than asking for one for a 60H but are the same part. The starter mounts at 12 oclock. The B-125 often sold for military use and there were a lot of them around. In my area, navy pull-offs were common. Only problem is that through surplus processes, they may not have made it to tractor scrapyards as often. Talking to used parts dealers about this might be the ticket.

The remainder of the parts are mostly off the shelf rebuilts.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
