    I agree. could be in for a pump.. colum rebuild. know it needs a pto shaft. will need a top cover kit.

    sounding more like a unit i'd buy for 1500$ at an auction and rip the maybee one good part out of it... the engine...

    that tractor is junk iron walk away from it and forget it.you can buy a good running 4000 for $4000 to $4500.and you would have close to $2000 more in that tractor to half way get it running.

    Hello,
    This is an update. I did pass on the pile of junk iron at the dealer and finally pulled the trigger on a 1959 641 from a private owner. The tin is in sad shape but the motor starts and sounds great, PTO works, 3 PT hitch works and the tractor seems to be in nice shape mechanically. Thanks so much to all that chimed in on my original post.
    Now to my first few Ford questions. The fuel shut-off valve on the bottom of the tank leaks very bad so I am in the process of removing it to take a look at it. I have read online that this valve seems to be a chronic issue. I need suggestions on where to purchase parts like this and also suggestions on where to buy a user manual and shop manual.
    Thanks,
    Bob W

    if it is a screw in valve you can usually rebuild them with 2 orings. if it is a lever vlave, just replace it.

    If you don't feel like prying the stop rivit out of the old valve and putting an oring on the stem and then tapping hte small hole for a machine screw to provide a stop for the stem.. then replace the screw on unit too.

    Many of us fix them as the price is 25-60$ vs 25 cents of orings.

    I&T fo-20 shop manual covers general maint and service. if you want to rebuild the tranny or engine.. i'd get the more spendy ford shop manual. for all else.. the fo-20 suffices if you are slightly handy with a wrench.

    there are owners manuals online.. places like N Tractor Club

    Many parts can be had from sites like 301 Moved Permanently

    and many many parts are available thru a CNH dealer.

    sparex, A&I, tisco are the leading aftermarket makes of most of the parts.

    ignition parts can be had at napa and similar stores.

    Side-Mount Distributor:
    Points:
    NAPA #CS749
    NAPA HEAVY DUTY PIERCED (ventilated) #CS753
    Standard Ignition #FD-8081
    Standard Ignition Blue Streak #FD-8081X (Premium)
    Condensor:
    NAPA #FA66
    Standard Ignition #FD-75
    Standard Ignition Blue Streak #FD75X (Premium)
    Rotor:
    NAPA #FA67
    Standard Ignition #FD-108
    Distributor Cap:
    NAPA #FA352
    Standard Ignition #FD-128
    6 volt coil IC7 ($48)
    6 volt coil IC7SB ($23)
    12 volt coil IC14SB ( 16$ )

    if it uses a spin on oil filter.. then motorcraft fl1-a fram ph8a, supertech st8anapa 1452 or 1515 etc.. or crosses will all fit. if it uses the canister oil fliter, napa 1004 of fran ch6pl fram or whatever crosses to them.

    I reccomend 15w40 C/S rated oil for the engine, and UTF fluid for the trans, hyds and rear end ( all seperate sumps...) though you could put 80w90 gl5 gear oil in trans and rear end and hydraulic fluid iso32 or utf in the hyds. Many tiems the seal inside between hyds and rear end leaks and hydro and rear fluid mix.. which is why i don't like plain iso type hyd oils, and do favor utf in all sumps.

    if any sumps are wet.. flush with diesel, atf and alcohol mix.

    Those old fords are great tractors and if taken care of will last about forever. Soundguy, as you can see, is a wealth of information on these machines.
