Default Ford TW35

Any big issues with the Ford TW35?
Transmission problems?
Engine problems?
Anything else I should worry about?

These tractors have a reputation as being reliable workhorses having powerfull torquey reliable engines. Gearboxes are simple and robust although fairly rough changing and a bit awkward to use on the 16x4. Hydraulics were also simple with plenty of capacity for their time. Engine H.P. = 195 with 170 produced at the P.T.O. Find one that has been well looked after and regularly serviced and not too many hours and you should have a good machine.

I was thinking seriously about buying something like that. I was doing some similiar question asking to what you are on another site. I got a really great reply that kind of scared me away. The guy said that you'd have to know if the prior owners routinely maintained the coolant with coolant conditioner becuase if not, it would corrode to the point of failure, something these tractors were known for. Also said that there was no good way to tell how bad the problem was in a used tractor, of course until too late.
If you are interested in more detail, send me a PM and I'll see if I can find that other thread and send it your way.
