    how old is "old"? I have a 1970s ford 4000 and it's awesome...only difficulty we really had with it was we had to get the starter rebuilt (only cost $5, amazingly), and the loader kept losing power, so we kept putting hydraulic fluid in it, and it didn't help....until we figured out we were putting it in the wrong place. Thankfully, it didn't hurt the poor tractor to be putting the wrong fluid in, and once we put it in the proper place, it worked like a charm.

    This isn't his, but my dad still runs a 1949 Oliver Row Crop 77 for the manure spreader, plowing the garden, bushhogging, etc. It doesn't work all that hard now, but it's still going strong!
