I used a Moldboard plow and I actually prefer my disc plow. The place I plant my garden is beside of a patch of woods and the moldboard plow kept getting caught over roots but the disc plow cut right thru the roots. This plow weighs somewhere around 400-500 lbs and once it digs theres not a lot that gets in it's way. I don't have a really rocky soil so I wouldn't know about rocks. I wish I took pictures but the plow cut thru a root that was about 4 inches thick and I didn't even know when it cut it.
I was trying to get rid of the tractor but I changed my after watching a tractor parade that happens locally. I noticed that there was more Ford 601s in the parade than any other tractor. I figured if theres that many still around they can not be bad tractors. Plus If I traded for another tractor It seems I am always trading for another mans troubles.
I have been working on LEAKs for the past few days. Yesterday I replaced the oil pan gasket and put gasket sealer around a plate on the bottom of the transmission. Tonight I went outside and drained the hydraulic reservoir and removed the bottom plate. After removing the plate I cleaned it with aceton and traced the edges gasket sealer. When replacing the plate I also found a plug on the side of the Hydraulic reservoir that was leaking and I took it out and placed gasket sealer on the threads and replaced. Tomorrow I am replacing the hoses from the oil bath container to the carb. There is a piece that's leaking behind the left brake lock but I can't find where it's coming from. I bought a PTO cover off of Ebay last night. I am hoping to buy a new set of tires sometime in the middle of this year. 500-700 dollars is hard for me to spend. After new tires everything will basically be brand new. The guy before me bought a brand new carb, distributor, points, plug wires, radiator, fuel cut off, switch, new gas line, new spark plugs, new tachometer and amp meter.
