Crusty, moss covered in spots,
nasty looking TO-35
Split trans gave it away with a Howard offset tiller behind it.
Sticker on it said engine and clutch problems.
I looked no further. Fresh(?) oil oozing from the PTO housing and it came with a $1595 price tag. For 1/2 of that might be too much.
I might go back just to take some pics.
That would be machine #8 and I still have 3 or 4 to get fixed up and the current one (8N) to finish.
The "35 will not be coming home with me.

Well then, the tractor is in your range, cause that tiller would be 8 or 900 around here, and farm stuff is cheap in New England compare to almost everywhere else. The 35 would be a generation...no... a time wrap over what you are working with now. You might suprise yourself. Ask 2.

You mean that "35 that I was longing for might outdo my recently ($300) aquired basket case Ford 881D. That machine giving me the select-o-speed transmission and the 45 hp diesel.
That 881D kinda eliminated the dream of a "35. Other than to flip it. That dream, actually fantasy, still rattles around the back of my brain.
Too many toys, not enough time. . .

Ford parts are expensive too, just spent over 400 on a steering pump for the hoe. The standard gets a rattle can and no sand blast, getting sick of my toys.The 50 needs a front seal, the finish mower new wheels and blades,scraper, auger, and flail need parts, then theres the truck and cars,if i could buy everything at once the economy would instantly pick up.

A guy near me just sold (lost?) the place, and he wants to get the equipment out soon. A Ford 600 something.... that has tire and tranny troubles...selectowhatever... I don't want it, so to be helpful I told all the old pisans that are into fords about it... when I mention selectotranny troubles... they all walk away. I suppose it will go to scrap- engine running like a top... but.... I saw a too nice '56 TO35 the other day.... is it OK to post stranger's stuff on the web? I guesso eh? You would drool... 2 will too.....

Select-O-Speed trans had problems the first year. Ford warrantied all of them. The reputation never diminished. The Select-O-Speed is basically an automatic transmission and requires more than the average intelligence to repair it I would suppose. I was told by the Po that the SOS I have has no problems. He took the engine apart for "low power" with about 40 hours from a New Holland rebuild. (???)
The engine is in unmarked disassembled parts and the block with tin is bolted to the front axle now allowing movement. I have not touched it since it came home with all my other problems this year. I did pick up a 55 gal drum to remove and pickle the engine hopefully sometime this year.
Seeing that ugly '35 gave me a slight delusional fantasy.
