Hello everyone,
I currently own 6 gt's and enjoy them all. Well today I go bigger. I bought a 1941 farmall A tractor for $850. I'm looking for owners manuals and repair manuals for the machine that I can download and print. I've made all my manuals on the computer, laminated them at work and placed them in a large binder. Any help would be great. How do you guys think I did??? $850, new brakes, clutch, runs great, looks ok.?? I'll post pics later!

Great BUY I was raised in the seat of a Super A. In my view the BEST tractor for plowing. Wish i still had it.

Congradulations on the new Farmall!!!
I'll do some looking around. I know I got some documents on the cub tractors but I think I remember seeing a possible other manual to either an A or some other model laying around....
I'll let ya know :)

Congrats on the Farmall!!!! I am sure you will like it. I think you did very well on the price. They are a handy size, simple to work on if needed and dependable. My wife and I have 2 Farmall A tractors and a Farmall B. We take them on tractor rides a couple times a summer.

thanks guys for the comments. Brian if you do come up with something that would be great. Im gonna stop a tractor supply tomorow morning to check out if they have regular maint. items and a repair manual. By the way everyone I drove the tractor home from the previous owners house. Brian you will probably know the locations. I drove from boston state rd by robo gas station, up patchin hill, down zimmerman, down brown hill to my house on langford rd. For those that don't know our local area @ 8 miles. took me roughly 45 mins, but it was fun!!! It ran good, couple things that need adjusting for my personal preferences. After I work the machine to clean my yard I think I will start rebuilding it. I will post pics tomorrow. have a good night!
