  • Worthington G-6
  • I own a 1962 Worthington G-6 with a loader bucket. Was this an accessory of the tractor or a retro fit? It has a Continental engine and runs nice. I need brake parts for it including shoes, cylinders and lines. Does anyone know where I could get these parts? I am on the fence as to whether to attempt to sell it or restore it myself. Any idea if there is any demand for this tractor? All tin is in good shape. It looks like a nice restoration project but presently, I'm up to my ears in projects. How is the availability for parts for this tractor? Is there any interest in the loader that is presently on the tractor? Other than the brakes and paint, its in decent shape.

  • I don't think the Red Seal are worth that much. Most guys prefer the ford 8n style worthington with the ford flathead engine. Don't know about parts availability On the continental engine. Ferguson used the continental engine not sure if it's the same one used in the Red Seal worthington.
    Post a photo if you can.

  • I found paperwork on the Worthington G-6. Its a 1962 Serial #2263. It was bought in 1967 by the city of Brockton, MA and came through with a Wagner Model 1511 Loader. In the 80's my father bought it and added a winch on the back with a one cylinder aux engine (since removed) to pull stumps. I am thinking of removing the loader since it only steers easy in a straight line and winch, restoring it, and tooting around the
    farm with it. The only mechanical issues are the foot brakes which don't work and an antifreeze leak which I believe is a rotted lower radiator hose. The Continental engine purrs like a kitten. I had it running last week. I would assume the brake parts are Ford. Would that be true ? Any help in finding parts would be greatly appreciated I am out straight with projects now but hope to start this in the near future. When I get a chance, I will post pictures.
