This one's going to need a bit of work, but I've been looking
for one for a while now, so I bought it. 1958 (I think) 1841.

Good 16.9 x 24 rears, full set of pie weights, Sherman reverser,

Ford loader with no cracks or welds anywhere that I could find.

Came with a replacement engine and spare front axle to boot.

Good thing, because it's going to need that engine.

Nice, I think you will be happy with it. Seems like it was well taken care of, the hole in the block might have saved this machine from becoming all busted up. I have one of those air cooled engines too! Looks like it might be still wearing itsí original paint,I like that color combination. Not too common to find one that is not all busted and welded up. The loader and backhoes on these machines were overpowered and donít know stop. I have found that they like to crack right at that bend on the frame where the loader mounts. Itís good to checked them out real well to catch the small cracks before they become big cracks. I have a couple of them now, okay more like a few. It's an addiction, the wife has me in a recovery program now, we meet every other Wednesday at 8. There is nothing like the high of a freshly bought tractor! It has been about a year since I bought my last one Ö.

Nice find Royse. Appears to be an 1841 with later 4000 HD steering box. The sherman handle on the 1841 would have been the dogleg style but the dogleg handle hit the later 4000 steering arm so they changed to the straight handle, as shown on my 4000 HD. Appears they just hack off part of the dogleg handle and added a gear shift off a riding mower. The wheel weights appear to be the heavy weight lip style for the rim. If you take them off would be curious to see if there's a W8 on the back. While you have the engine out check for cracks at the bend in the frame. Easier to get a good weld on the inside with engine out. Good luck with the new project.

Kirk-NJ,

Do you think it could possibly be a reverser that when they changed out the steering box they made do with a welded on handle? Maybe the linkage was missing or damaged.

Hereís a picture of an 1821 late 1958 Gas with the Sherman combo..


And an a 1821 early Diesel with the Sherman Reverser


This is an 1841 later diesel with the shifter handle.

Yes might also be a reverser, anything is possible. Here's one made up for my 8n cause it hit the mounting plate for the one arm loader. I've seen busted handles get welded up in all kinds of positions.

It was an interesting day Larry. The driveway up out of where that

tractor was, to get to the shop to load the replacement engine, was

a winding, uphill drive. I didn't get going fast enough to make it up

the hill the first time. I thought I had enough weight to make it
work without going too fast and sliding off one of the curves.

2018 F250 with four wheel disk brakes, 14K trailer with brakes on

all four wheels, all 8 wheels locked up and still sliding backwards,

back down that hill. Tractor/loader/bucket/pie weights/16.9 x 24

loaded tires/spare front end all loaded on the trailer already.
What's that? 15K pounds or so?

Nothing I could do but let off the brakes and steer the trailer back

down the hill to get a better running start. It worked out fine.

I think I twisted that tail hard enough. Thank goodness for good mirrors!

Yep, no cables Jerry. Replacement front axle has a rebuilt cylinder

and new hoses. The current front end has one sloppy king pin.

Other than that, it looks good too.

I have to take it off to replace the engine anyway so I'll swap them.

Won't happen until summer though. Getting that loader frame off

is going to be quite a bit of work I think. I've never done an engine
swap in an industrial, so it will be a learning experience.

A true loader tractor.
Nice.
Looks like you got the late style steering which is a big plus over the early cable rig.

Nice - I've always liked the appearance of the industrials - I've got a 960 with a block with a hole in a similar position - the pieces were welded back and altho the area seeps just a little bit the engine runs fine - all done before I got it -
I hope you'll post some pictures as you work on it -

I have two HD Industrials one Elenco 4x4 and the other two wheel drive, Iím always impressed with the lifting capabilities of these tractors. Both of mine were cable steer which I had to change out. Yours looks like a great machine and a plus to find with a nice set of 24Ē wheel weights and already has the drag link steering. Iíll try to post a picture of the Industrial I picked up last April. Good luck with your project.
