Considering buying a Farmall 504. Any issues with that model I should be concerned about? Also, this tractor currently has a tricycle front and I'd like to swap it out with a wide front, can this be done? thanks

I have a Farmall 504 and like it, the short fallings I have with it is reverse is very slow and the road speed is only could be a little better, I have a Swartz wide front on mine spindles are lite but it works.

Make sure you check the radiator out, found out the hard way (cracked block) that overtime they fill with sediment in the middle of it leaving only a little space on the top and bottom of the radiator. This causes it to over heat and possibly crack the block. Ours was a 504D utility great tractor otherwise.

They are a very nice Super C,I had two of them,I sent the Farmall down the road just because it had good paint and great rear tires. My 656 Hydro just works better with a lot more power. I kept the 504U with a loader on it.

Not a bad tractor. Light duty. The engine is sleeveless and the internals are primarily like a c Wide fronts from c through 340 should work or a speeco or similar that has that bolt pattern. Cheap horse power but a friend of mine said it is like a bee on steroids. Not a real lugging engine and will not pull as much a 460.

Anything you should be concerned about? Yes, EVERYTHING. The tractor is over 50 years old now, and quite literally any part in the entire tractor could be on the verge of failure. Common wear items like hydraulic pumps, engines, TAs, clutches, tires... those usually go first, but also bearings, seals, gaskets... Either the tractor has to be cheap enough that you can afford to put a few parts in it, or it has to be in verifiable primo condition.

Yes, it can be swapped out to a wide front. The challenge is finding a good wide front that isn't already being used. It's not like they're on the shelves at your local walmart. 504's aren't a real common tractor.

Today's Featured Article - Sunday Drives - by Cowboy. Summer was finally upon us here in Northern Maine. We have two types of industry up here, one being "Forestry" (Wood Products) and the other "Farming" (Potatoes). There is no shortage of farm tractors and equipment around here! I have been restoring old Farm Tractors for the past 6 years, and have found it easier and less expensive to hit all the auctions and purchase whole tractors for parts needed.
