Just brought it home yesterday so Im still doin research on this one.... so correct me if Im wrong....

Seems to be an 861 with 4 cyl gas, 5 speed, live pto, 3 pth with draft control, came with Fel, sickle mower and cultivator, running but needs some TLC.

Nice looking tractor that appears to have been well kept. Your description appears to be correct. Pull the serial number and model number of the flat of the trans to confirm and obtain the probable year.

Serial #.... according to tractordata I believe is a '61

143927

I can check the trans tomorrow but it is a 5 speed, I had it running and it has a two stage clutch although I didnt actually try the pto.... had oil leaking from the plastic line going to the gauge, and water leaking from a frost plug so I didnt want it running for long.... but it sounded good.

That plastic line was originally steel, but when you get a new gauge you get copper. I was able to get 1/8 tube and fittings at my local hardware.
