amazing gearbox


My friend has an old ford 1957 tractor,25 hp originally i think.Now he is busy with tractorpulling , free class.The old tractor did maybe 15 mph before on the road.He pimped the engine up to 900 hp and even more!!!.Still with the original gearbox and rear end.Once the main roller bearings were cracking a little and he changed them for needle bearings.And there he was going again .

Today they maufacture cars and other crap and they just last a short time,Very clever.$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Is it a Ford or a Fordson? I don't know if there is any differences in the gearboxes but I was discussing this same topic just the other day with a friend that is originally from England. He says the old Fordson gearboxes were so well over engineered that he knows people that were putting Perkens diesel engines on them and just pulling the heck out of them.
