My first post. I have a Ford 1600 compact tractor handed down to me from my dad who bought it new in 1978. Currently has 1301 hours. I've done lots of reading on this forum and will continue to check in frequently to help me keep the 1600 runnin'. I'm interested in reading about the experience others have with the same tractor, or one very similar, like its predecessor, the Ford 1000.

Welcome to the forum! Glad to see you are keeping the tractor up and running. Do you have the manuals for it?

Yes, I have purchased a copy of the "Ford 1000/1600 Service Manual" and the I & T Shop Manual. Plus, I have the original operator's manual! So far, I've only performed simple maintenance such as regular oil/filter changes, hydraulics/transmission fluid changes, Fuel filter and the cup. This tractor is the perfect size for me. The biggest challenge will be finding parts.
