Rare and not very desirable or usable or valuable in my opinion.

Not so rare, at least in these parts.
And not so unuseable imo. My first 3 cyl Ford was a plain Jane 2000 gasser w/4 speed.
I owned it for about 4 years and did a lot of work with it - plowing, discing, finish mowing, brush hogging - the usual stuff with it.
Yes, 1st gear is very fast and no way would I trade my 8 speed w/live power for one. But I liked the tractor a lot more than the N Series and a 641 I'd had before that. And if given the choice between that 4 speed and an SOS I'd take the... Well I'd better not say that here.

You must really hate the SOS with a passion to prefer a 4 speed over it.

Bern, The 4 speeds aren't the best transmission but they were simple and reliable.
This guy's plight is just one reason to not want one. If it was a failed clutch on a crash box it is a big job to do the split/replace but new parts are readily available for $150 or so.
To do this job on his SOS is a bigger job with a double split and he's forced to find used parts for a lot more money.
And then there's the issue of their complexity. Add to that their lack of precision for tight manuvering and their very unpleasant hard shifting I really don't know why anybody would want one.
I was a little hard in them in that ad wasn't I.

You should have read his craigslist ad for the SOS after he pulled it out of his 4200! 😄
