Why does everything on the old series of tractor have the "o" in it. I was looking at my headlights on my 601 and they say tract-o-light. Then there is the famus select-o-speed, rest-o-ride. I just noticed as well, on the drawbar its engraved power-o-draw. Whats up with this?

It all came to a screeching halt when the S-O-S got renamed "jerk O matic". Having had a 6000 diesel forever one ponders if it is nomenclature for the operation of the tractor or a description of anyone who would own one.

Well, you know Harry Ferguson was Irish. I wonder if some of his character rubbed off on the Ford brass, even though they'd deny it if asked.

Now Jim calm down. Wasn't the early Ford 1952 automotive called Ford-O-Matic?

I think there was an Irish guy working in the office at Ford who made those "naming" decisions.

I always thought a 4 cylinder engine purred nice, and a 2 cylinder sounded like PLOP PLOP.

Today's Featured Article - Oliver 550 Clutch Overhaul Tips - by Greg Sheppard. I got my 1964 Oliver Model 550 (serial 141-139-519) second-hand and used it for several years before the clutch began to slip. After taking up the pedal linkage several times I saw it was going to take more than that. The engine had been leaking oil at the rear seal and I suspected ... [Read Article]
