That's interesting you mentioned the early SOS trannies failed. Growing up on the farm my dad had a Jubilee. When they first came out with the SOS my dad was looking for a new tractor. Every time we would go to the dealer to get parts for things they would have a SOS in there torn down. He bought a 62 or 63 4000 with the 5 speed , live power and power steering. Best tractor we ever had. I think that is was the first or second year that they were blue. It looked like the 800 series tractors. I remember his saying I will not buy one with that SOS. They are prone to fail. A friend of mine grew up on the farm also and his dad had a SOS and never had problems with it. Those early ones must have been problematic. Thanks for the info.
