Only 4,191 of these were made. It's rarer than the super MD I just bought, but not quite as rare as the SMD-TA. Paid 1500 for the tractor, and then I don't have pictures of the implements. I got a sickle bar mower (7'), two bottom plow, and rear grader blade, All fast hitch. Also came with front wheel weights. The tractor is loaded option wise (Power steering, TA, fast hitch etc) and I was told it ran before, but seemed to lack power and wouldn't go to full throttle. But, if the way the diesel looked was an indication of anything, I could see why. I hope to have it running by the end of the week.
Question: :?: The draft control guage has two cables running back to the fast hitch. I'd like to see if I can hook it up again. Does anybody know where the cables hooked onto the fast hitch? The cables are cut, but making new ones won't be a problem. TIA
Won't have any pictures for probably another week yet. I'm working out the machining logistics for that nut I need to make. can't find a 1 7/8"-16 tap so I'm probably going to have to cut threads. The reverse idler shaft is out and all the bushings are pressed out. As it stands now, It needs the three bushings replaced, and I need to buy the other two bearings. They're in, I just buy them as I get the money. I'd like to do the PTO, but I need to run the cost of bearings. I've had some various parts in the lathe at work cleaning edges up and refacing them. Next big item is the axles and figuring out why that one bearing was loose. Started back in school today so now I have that obligation again. I'll try to keep updating as much as I can. Thanks for the interest
