Hello. I just joined because my Dad and I are working on his 140. I think it is a 1973, He bought it in the late 70's I think? He's not done much to it at all, so it's time. Brakes were so out of adjustment, they barely worked. Oil leaking all over it. Steering very loose, to the point were loading it on a trailer is just dangerous. Fast hitch is nice. Dad wants to rig up a hitch receiver for his Bobcat skid steer. He has discovered that they are almost impossible to find, so we may have to make one.

Although that is the tractor I grew up with, I was more of a fan of my grandfather's 9N, so when I decided to buy a tractor, I found an old Ford 641 with the original hydraulic dozer blade attachment. It needs a TON of work.

I have one similar to this one, made by Titan. Works very well.

Thanks Don. Did you modify it for a Fast-Hitch?

No. It’s used on my skid steer. Maybe I misunderstood your post.

Fords have a big following but not me----I have a Golden Jube. ( 1953 and all numbers match), has 3-pt, and a 702 loader here that is useless so it never gets used! lol!
If you want a 2-pt receiver adapter,---you will have to make one.
Kinda like 3-pt adapters for 2-pt ----- hard to find and expensive IF you run across them!
