Does anyone know where I might find a drawbar for a Ford 961 Row Crop?

Are you asking about an 11 hole drawbar that fits between the lift arms or the swinging drawbar with extra drop used on the Row Crops?

If you're talking about the deep drop swinger, they're hard to come by. Once in a great while, one might show up on eBay. If it does, it'll be pricey.

One of my three came with a standard draw bar. I had it cut and extended in the drop part. Yes, I know that it is not to be trusted as if it were original.

If you really need one you could have one made.
A piece of X10 steel flame cut to size then cold formed in a press. Drill the holes after.
When the big machine shop was still running my friend Kenny made a couple of drawbars.
You can hardly tell them from originals.

I've seen a couple sell on Fleabay in the $150 price range.

Aren't the (swing)draw bars hardened and very tough? Almost like spring steel?

Fleabay is colloquial for ebay.

Good, unwelded 7/9xx swinging drawbars are not easily found and usually expensive.

I once bought a tractor just to get one and a set of 7/9xx sway bars, which are even more difficult to find. I subsequently sold the tractor for the price that I originally paid for it after removing the remote valve.

Yes, it's eBay: the on-line Flea Market.
