Well Mike, I stand corrected, but I have to call your add misleading. To me "all new engine gaskets and seals" means just that, and I think that it would be very rare for anyone to go to all the work to replace both crankshaft seals without renewing rings and bearings, or replace the front cover gasket and rings without replacing the camshaft bearings. Likewise I really believe that anyone reading that the rear end had been "gone through with new seals" would expect that it was all dis-assembled, checked for any wear, and everything showing wear was replaced along with the new input seals axle seals and PTO seal. I have to agree with the others now that $4000.00 would be a more realistic and honest price.

Sounds like a deal to me. Might be a little high priced on the drawbar though. It was used. Barely.

Definetly not anywhere close to rebuilt and my ad doesnt' say fully rebuilt. I just replaced old engine gaskets cuz of a little seepage. No way was I gonna rebuilt it with no blow by or tailpipe smoking. The tach broke at 310 hours but the rpm reading still works good.

As for the rear end the only reason I replaced seals was because I knocked out the expansion plug in the trumpet housing when I took off the brake cross shaft( bad words bad words). So I replaced the seals and trumpet gaskets while apart.

My price of $6500 is kinda high I think too but it is a OBO price.

I don't know if anybody remembers how badly I stole this tractor but I Love finding good ole Barn finds.

By the way I have found a 1923 Fordson Tractor at my nephew's wife's GrandDad's place that is For Sale. Haven't seen it yet so kinda ancy about this. Hopefully another tractor in the future for Nash Ranch

showcrop,

I read the entire ad. I'm sorry if I actually missed something, but where did you come up with the information that it is a "fully rebuilt" tractor? The only thing that claims to be new are the following:

"All new engine gaskets and seals. Rear end has also been gone thru with. new seals, gear oil."

That is not a fully rebuilt tractor in my mind. There's nothing to indicate that the engine has ever been rebuilt, or if it has, how many hours ago that might have been.

All I can gather from the ad is that it leaked from the engine and the rear end and now those leaks are fixed, and it has new hydraulic fluid and a paint job. It may have had more work than that done to it recently, but there's nothing in that ad to indicate it.
The first sentence "Farm Tractor restored to its former beauty" means to me that it was cleaned and painted. The word "restored" means different things to different people, but if it was truly "fully rebuilt" as you claim, he should change the wording of the ad to say that as well as include details of what work was done.

Mike, if you don't sell it you can just bring it to me. I'll take care of it and even let you keep the drawbar for a memory. Sound good?

Nash Ranch, your tractor is NOT overpriced. A lot of people don't like to read so they don't know what you are selling. You should start a little higher and be prepared to come down some. You could pull the ad and put it on eBay just to get some wider exposure, then put it back on C-list after 2-3 weeks. There are fewer buyers for a fully rebuilt 63 year old tractor than for one that is simply in good running order, but they are out there and you need to just cast your net a little wider.

When you put a lot into an older tractor to fix it up that nice, you need to understand up front that you're probably not going to get out of it what you put into it.
With that being said, I just looked at other tractors in the Eugene area on craigslist and you might be in the right ballpark with your price. I see a number of comparable tractors with asking prices higher than yours. The only one I see lower is an early style 5000 that needs work, so maybe in your area you're priced about right.

Most of the others that are priced higher have hydrostatic trans and live PTO, and your 640 has a manual transmission and non-live PTO, so some folks might not like it as much, but some old school folks don't care about non-live PTO and prefer a manual transmission, so you will have some potential buyers who wouldn't want it at all and others who think it's desirable.
I see that yours has been listed for a couple of days now. Have you gotten any responses (other than the usual scammers)?

Very nice looking tractor and loader, wish it was parked in my barn. It would never fetch that much money in my area, maybe $4000 tops and someone would have to want it really bad for that

Nice looking tractor but a little high priced, at least it would be here in southeastern PA.

There is a separate place on this site for classified ads. You're not supposed to post them in the discussion forums. I don't know if the admins of this site enforce that strictly or not.
