For a $1000 you cannot go wrong as far as specs on the tractor check out http://www.tractordata.com/
801 is the name for the entire series. The individual models were called the 811, 821, 831, 841, 851, 861, 871 or 881 depending on what transmission, hydraulics and pto options that they had.It's been a while since I've been around here but I have come across what seems to be a good deal on a Ford 801. I did a search on here and didn't really come up with anything specific. Maybe I was searching wrong, I don't know.
:MTF_wel2:Well I picked up my tractor. ran some numbers and it is a 1957 851. It came with the 6' box blade (no rippers though) I gave a $1000 for it. I don't think I got hurt, but after I got it off the trailer at home yesterday, it up and died on me. Definitely a carburetor problem because I can get it to run with b-12. I'm gonna tear into a rebuild this afternoon, I hope.
