Until very recently I owned a Ford 3000 which was purchased new in 1974. It was a very good and reliable tractor. Mine had a 3 cyl diesel engine, 8 speed tranny, live power, power steering, and differential lock. It was a reliable, faithful friend. Finally sold it to a good friend when I purchased a new tractor. Can't say anything bad about the 3000. May be the best tractor Ford ever built!

I just bought a "61" 841D diesel. It works great!
It has powersteering and a loader. The only advice I have is watch out when buying one with the sos trans.They work awsome when they work but can be exspensive to fix from what i've gatherd by the talk around this forum. I would suggest powersteering especaily if you want a loader. I barrowed a friends 660 with out powerst. and man what a struggle. While discing up some ground on a side hill the front tires would catch a lump a WAM! the steering wheel would crank one way or the other.Watch your thumbs on that! Dont get me wrong on the sos we had one on the dairy and never had a prob. but couldn't tell you how to pick a good one. Just my 2 cents WRP

I bought a 1968 Ford 3000, 3cyl. dzl. two years ago to do some contract bush-hogging. I use the tractor for all sorts of hobby farming also. I have such implements as scrape blade, box scrape, cultivators, "tater" plow and the like. I LOVE MY TRACTOR. The only regret I have is that it doesn't have power steering. I have USED my tractor for the past two years with absolutely no problems. Hope you have as much luck and fun with yours.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
