Unfortunately, Farmtrac USA went out of business in 2008.  The nice thing about the Farmtrac 60
is that it is a clone of the Ford 3620 farm tractor so many parts are available from Ford, other vendors or remaining Farmtrac parts from old Farmtrac dealers. The tractor is still produced by Escorts of India and is exported throughout the world. 

As most of you know the forefather of the Farmtrac 60 is the Ford 3620.  A couple of years ago the Farmtrac 60 was renamed the Farmtrac 555.  I believe there are some differences in the fuel injection system.  Now the Farmtrac 555 has been rebadged as the Montana Limited 555.  

                   Slipping steering arm?

The bolts which hold the steering spindle arms on the
shafts are not grade 8 bolts.  The left front steering
spindle arm gets a lot of pressure from the power
steering ram.  

If you drive your Farmtrac 60 equiped with the 5320
loader around in the woods like I do you'll find that the
steering gets blocked by stumps, logs and irregular
terrain.  The OEM steering spindle arm bolts simply
stretch and you can not tighten the bolt enough to
keep the left front steering spindle arm from slipping
on the spindle shaft.

If you have this problem, go to the hardware store and
buy a grade 8 hardened bolt, nut washer and lock
washer.  I took the second OEM bolt I wore out with me
and found an off the shelf grade 8 bolt just about the
exact size at Lowes.  

The hardened bolt holds better, can be torqued to the
max yet, due to design, if the tractor is running with a
full loader load and runs into an obstacle the shaft will
slip to help prevent spindle or axle damage.

Battery Not Charging?

Before running off to find an alternator you may want
to try this.  On my tractor the circuit which excites the
alternator enabling it to begin charging the battery is
bad.  Simply disconnect the green wire from the
alternator.  Attach a piece of wire with a female
bayonet connector to the connection on the alternator.
After the tractor is started momentarily touch the new
wire (white wire in the picture)  to the pole on the
alternator which has the red wire attached.  This may
turn on the alternator.  
We bought our tractor in Aug 2003 -
the tractor has over 390 hours on it.

Our 2003 Farmtrac 60 Problems and repairs.

    have made over the years Have a leak on the low pressure return for my hydraulic system...about a quart or
    two a year. I believe I may have caused this problem by overfilling. The leak is on the right side of the tractor
    where the low pressure line elbow enters the differential.

    Acting on the suggestion of a Tractorbynet poster, I replaced the left steering arm retaining bolt with a
    hardened grade 8 bolt. The OEM bolts stretch. The bolt holds much better! No slipping.

    Replaced rubber boot on 5320 loader joystick

    Replaced Grille (had rammed a stick through it running around in the woods)

    Changed large and small air filters

    Have neutral safety switch in box ready to install [still haven't done it]

    Need to run wire from Alt to Starter or Ignition Switch for Alt energizer. Still just touching a wire. [still haven't
    done the perm fix...but the battery charges well using this method]
