Just sold mine 4months ago, buyer loves it. I had it 15 years, work tractor with FEL. Had some adjustments and fine tuning on the SOS. But worked well. With good maintenance they are a strong reliable unit.

Lots of people who know a little about old Ford tractors will tell you that you should stay away from any Ford with the Select-O Speed, because anyone who knows a little about them knows that the original SOS was problematic. Those who know more about old Fords know that the SOSs used in the three cylinder Fords are just as good as any powershift of the time, and most of them are still out there working.

I have a 4000 and a 5000, both 1967's, diesels with SOS trannys. I keep the fluids and filters changed and have had zero problems. Both are used during haying season and the 5000 sees some tillage work. I would not hesitate to recommend them. Takes a while to get used to the "inching" pedal and the shift from 4th to 5th is not smooth. A few hours of seat time and you'll figure it all out. Good luck

A 4000 is about as good as a 5000 (one of Ford's best), and the SOS trans was pretty much rock solid reliable by then. Would not be afraid of it.

I have a 1973 3 cylinder 4000 with a gas engine and S-O-S transmission and I love it. It is a workhorse. The diesel engines have the same hp rating as the gas, but with more torque, and are they more fuel efficient. Perform all recommended maintenance and it should be as reliable for you as mine has been for me.

Engine good, Trans no. Get a diesel with the 8 spd manual transmission, independent pto, planetary drives, power steering ( not power assisted) and you have a tough 50 hp tractor easy on fuel, good cold weather starter, that will last for years with simple maintenance. Ben

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
