farmall,
Whats your plans for the tractor, the 300 replaced the Super H and the 350 replaced the 300. The 400 replaced the SMTA and the 450 replaced the 400. I think the biggest difference between the 300-350 and the 400-450 was increase in engine bore. I'm sure there were also other upgrades.

I myself like the 400. One of the reasons for that is because we owned 2 of them on the farm years ago. We always had a loader on our's so it seemed to make a nice smaller loader tractor. All your above list are great tractors.

Maniac, like the Caseman said, all on your list are good ones, but then again, ALL farmalls are a good choice!!:D

I like the letter series myself, but that's mainly to set a limit on the collection.:rolleyes: The 400/450 would be quite simple to work on, pretty straight forward battery ignition, and basic internal combustion gas engine. Good solid units! As for price of parts, they can be pricey for ANY tractor. Ussually there are enough Farmalls around that used parts are availlable. One thing to consider though, is the hundred series and 50 series were only made for 2 years each, so parts specific to those models might be a little harder to get used. Take a look at tractor salvage yards near you.

Yup, the 450 was just an updated version of the 400. It got restyled sheet metal, and an extra 1/8" in the bore. You could likely put the bigger pistons and sleeves into a 400. I believe that all the main chassis components would interchange.
