look in the loft of the garage in this pic.... I'd be happy to sell it for $5K and I'd throw in the home made one next to it for free.

I'm new to owning a tractor, traded a 96 F150 and some cash for a 88ish case 485 with a loader and a gannon, 3cyl international diesel and new tires, makes moving junk a breeze
Then I picked up a late 60s/ early 70s Hyster 4k forklift, with a 4cyl ford on propane, smokes like a train and needs some extensions, but bitchin for loading scrap.
I'm thinking I'll be in the market for a bigger lift soon.

His is about a 3hp engine, but the actual physical size of the engine is comparable to a 10-15hp of today. Right now he is using sickle mower on it, he has the blade and cultivators.
It still has the original Briggs model "N" engine under the hood. IIRC it was rated at 1 3/4 hp. What year is the Mont. Ward tractor?

Go over to www.smokstak.com and look under the garden tractor section. Plenty of good info and a lot of good folks over there...

I have a few
My 59 Ford Select-O-Speed

Winter Duty


I also have a Farmall A I am restoring, but no pics on line of it.

I have a pedal tractor too. They can be worth a lot, but the one shown here is worth $250 fixed up. You can get parts for them from a place in SD. new tires, rims, decals, etc...

Managed to snap a pic yesterday...the weeds are dead for the winter and you can just see the tractors peeking through the top. It would probably take a four pics in a row to catch all the tractors and harvesting equipment. Second pic is the "no trespassing" sign on a pickup blocking the driveway.

My Dad has a little diesel 1961 Oliver 500 which is basically a David Brown 850 painted green, he bought it back in the early 80s with a bush hog, blade and coonass PTO water pump for $1200. The bush hog had a good gear box but a rusted deck so he pulled the hardware off of it and had a 3/8" aluminum deck built for it which ended up costing him more than the whole tractor did but he's been cutting his 8 acres of land with it ever since. It'll be mine one day, I hope I have the space and need for it so it just doesn't sit... I know I'll never sell it. He's already warned me that he'll come back and haunt me if I ever sell his aluminum bush hog.

Here's what I wish it looked like.



His is in great shape and runs like a brand new tractor but it needs some paint and new brakes/lights. She'll pump out a flooded field like a champ.

I have a John Deere one Identical to that, with a little tag trailer too, in next to brand new shape. Who wants to give me 10k for it? I have seen them go on ebay for like $150 bucks...

I have had it 10 years now and it has worked well for me. I just cleaned out the yard from our 17" snow fall on Saturday. I have to ride the "clutch" (not a true clutch, but it acts like one), but it works pretty well. My 971 Diesel is 48 hp your 641 is less hp so depending on the amount of snow its going to work it harder. The wheel weights help and I run my tire pressures around 12 psi.

My 641 should do fairly decent for small amounts of snow at the moment till I mod it some more. It has calcium in the rears, then I have a set of front and rear wieghts for it. Rears are 300lbs ea and fronts are 100lbs ea.

Far as power, It might make enough stock is 33hp. It had a blown head gasket when I got it- couldnt tell till it used water finally. I fixed it about a month ago/ hot rodded it a touch. I milled .080" off the head, did some port work and a nice valve job to it. It also was rebuilt at one time - could explain why it runs really well brush hogging. I dunno if it has bigger pistons in it or not tho. I imagine its near 40 hp? It runs way better since I messed with it. Theres lots more power all threw the power band.

The lack of a slow speed problem is gonna be fixed in the next month or so. I bought a howard box for it. Should be slow enough to snow blow, rototill and brush hog/ whatever at a slow speed.

You were the one that took the pic I know I've got a digital copy of it on my desktop.
Yeap, I'd figure this time 6 years ago, good memory!

I would say that is the biggest thing. I have Fergie TO-35 that lived its life on my grandparents farm, my parents place and now mine. It has the High Low gear choices and for snowblowing or brush cutting we usually use low.

Factory HP specs are around 35 for ours, it was rebuilt in the late 70's early 80's, and now has the pleasure of garage living at my place. I would expect any 30HP tractor if you can crawl slow enough to handle it.

My dad does say his 6ft snow blower works better on his new JD though as it is closer to 45 HP and has H, M, L, gear selections. He also said the 4wd negates chains anymore, which I told him good since they are mounted on my tractor.

Is that a snow blower that you use in reverse?

I saw a bunch of old barns on a recent road trip, but not too many tractors. I'm partial to old Ford and Deere tractors, and Farmalls too. I also kinda like Massey 65's.

Yup its a very common type of blower for use on Ag tractors. Most every farmer around here have them on real tractors with bigger 2 stage versions. With the Select o Speed on mine (fords First Power shift) I have 2 reverse speeds, the slow reverse is still a little fast, but after I get the first pass done I only do half the width (or less depending on the snow depth) so I can keep backing up with out constantly stopping.

Personally I would get rid of the calcium chloride. I have seen more rims ruined by that stuff on these old tractors. Other than that sound like you have a good setup.

Took a tire off of an old Massey 65 once. It had 100lb weights on the rear wheels and the one tire had water and calcium chloride in it. Got some ion my mouth, friggin salty. LOL That tire damn near crushed me getting it off. I imagine a lot of people have been squashed over the years due to tires and working on equipment around the farm.

The calcium if on my list of things to eventually get rid of. Im not too worried about it since it had new tires and tubes when I bought it.
I have wheel weights to replace the calcium someday.



I cant complain about the 641. It had 2 new rear tires and a back blade for $800. All it took to get running was some gas and a battery.
