Here it is guys, My new to me 1941 Farmall A. It came as you see it with rear tire chains for $850. It runs pretty well, but needs some tlc. My plan is to use it as is til all my yardwork is finished then restore it eventually. So yesterday, I used it to pull out 4 smaller trees and a bush. The wife said it earned its keep! Next task hauling wood!

thanks for looking Brian, I went to tractor supply in hamburg and they have manuals. There $32.95 and cover a hole line of farmal tractors. I kinda browsed through it and it wasn't what I want. I'm looking for a repair manual that covers the basic maintences and fluids to rebuilding the whole tractor. So internet here we come. Time to search!

That is a nice looking A you found! The price was very good and it's a worker already and the wife is happy with it, what more could you want? Someond has added the hydraulics on it. It looks like a power steering pump from a truck maybe. The A model didn't come with hydraulics until they came out with the super A.

So if the "A" model didnt have hydralics then how were the implements raised and lowered? Did farmall A's have a snowplow attachment? The hydralics on this model were put on to run a homemade snowblade. If I were ever to find a woods belly mower how would it lift up and down?? just wondering

The original mounted implements were raised by either long handles you pulled or they did have a lift cylinder that was run by using exhaust pressure from the engine. The pull behind implements like plows usually had their own ground driven lift system with a trip rope to raise or lower them. Hydraulics was a big improvement! They did have a full line of implements including a snow plow for these tractors. The woods mowers had a hand lift for them if you don't have hydraulics. Since you have homemade hydraulics you should be able to adapt that to lift a woods mower.
