Family Fordson


1926 Fordson Tractor

My family has been on our land since the 1920’s. It is a small 8 acre plot in Ohio. My Grandfather was born here on this land in 1932. My father was born on this land  in  1968, and passed away in 2008. I was born on this land in 1987 and both my kids were born on this land in 2011 and 2015. My grand dad would tell me that they used the 1926 Fordson tractor for every little thing. He would help the farmer’s around us with any thing they needed. All of the land around us has been developed or sold off. Wish I could go back to the old days and see it all.

The Fordson has rubber wheels on it now but the steel wheels are in the barn. I need to get new plugs and wires so I can get her cranking again.

Grandpa’s Old Ford

Grandpa's Old Ford

Sitting Proud on Grandpa’s Old Ford Tractor

Ever since I was a young boy, as seen here on Grandpa’s old Ford tractor in 1953, I have always loved Ford tractors. My Grandpa died when I was young and the place was sold along with the tractor. Never could track down that tractor. I now have a couple/few Ford tractors of my own to help out on my small farm.

Photo is of my 1939 Ford 9n and 1960 Ford workmaster 631 with 711 one arm loader in front of my wood shed. Steiner Tractor Parts help keep them running, and looking good, so I can get the job done.

January Featured Photo

January’s featured photo was submitted by Keith Fink. “This is our 1942 Ford 9N which belongs to our 11-year old son, Hank (pictured). The whole family helped to fix up and paint the tractor. This is one of three ‘old tractors’ on our dairy farm, but none of them have achieved collector status yet as they are all daily workers.” Click here to see the other winning tractor photos that were selected to appear in our 2018 catalog.

Confused on Parts for Ford 2110 & 2120’s?

Here is a breakdown of all the model variations;

There were 3 different ones of each built, here are the variations.

2110 4 cylinder made from 1963-1964, this is a row crop with 134 C.I. gas / 144 C.I. diesel variation of the 2000 4 cylinder series, it has a 4 speed transmission, no PTO, no hydraulics. (Most of the parts for the 700 series fits)

2110 3 cylinder made from 1965 to 1974, this is a LCG tractor (low ground clearance) used for mowing etc. it used a 158 C.I. or 175 C.I. gas / diesel (most of the parts for a 2003 3 cylinder series fit, except rims/ & front axle parts)

2110 4 cylinder 38 HP diesel (138 C.I.) built by Shibaura in Japan from 1983 thru 1986 (this is a stand alone compact tractor that unless we have the part we will need to try to special order parts for)

2120 4 cylinder 42 HP diesel (138 C.I.) built by Shibaura in Japan from 1987 thru 2002 (this is a stand alone compact tractor that unless we have the part we will need to try to special order parts for).

Ford Tractor is Heading Home

Gene Hopkins of Cottondale, Alabama is the winner of Steiner Tractor Parts, Inc. 40 year anniversary tractor sweepstakes. Gene’s name was drawn from 18,960 entries to win a restored Ford 8N.

Gene took a few days off from his job working for the city to drive up and get his new tractor. Gene, his wife Patti and long time friend Curtis made the trip to Steiner’s over the weekend and arrived at 8:00 am Monday right after we opened for the day.  After about an hour of chit chat, a small tour, and loading the tractor Gene and his group headed south trying to miss the next snow storm heading thru Michigan. I received an update from Gene about 20 miles north of Toledo when they came to a standstill on the expressway. Weather permitting they should arrive back in Alabama late Tuesday evening.

Curtis, Gene and Patti


Gene said the 8N “will be used for parades and enjoyment, she will not be a work tractor.” His children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews are just as excited as Gene to get this tractor home. He said they have been coming up with all kinds of ideas of where to take the tractor.

Congratulations Gene!




Gene sent these photos to let us know they made it home safely and that the family was enjoying their new ride!

Olivers and Some Little Fords

My Dad’s 1953 Oliver 77 diesel loaded to go to a tractor show last Summer. I also restored the 77 D in 1999.

My 70 Oliver 1946 simple front that I restored in 2005.

My 1949 Oliver 77 gas with a 1958 model #4 2 row corn picker that I restored in 1997.

A picture of several of my Ford garden tractors that I have been restoring for the last several years.

Another picture of the garden tractors, as of today I have 10 Ford garden tractors with different pieces of equipment on each of them. I have another garden tractor that I traded for, coming in a couple months.
