Does not "appear" to need much. What are you planning doing with it? Complete restore, clean up, paint?

The biggest problem for doing that for me would be getting those rims cleaned up. :(

It dont have to be perfect just prettier so I will do my best with a wire wheel and a drill :lol: the expense of breaking them down and blasting them is out of his check book range

Those manifolds are available, I don't know the price.\
I have seen them brazed, but it looks bad.

Thanks Bruce, I started looking and Steiner has them for about 70 bucks, I will look into brazing it first but ultimately its my friends tractor and his choice

i doubt the brazing will hold up if on an exposed surface. if it is on the flange connected to the block.. maybee.. etc..

good idead.

I've seen brazes on the pips sections blow out.. also in the iner exhaust port area too.. the outter flanges usually hold.. but if he was able to afford new.. thats way better!

good to hear!

I know little stuff adds up but these aren't big ticket items. Fix it and then you have a good tractor that will last for years.

Thats what I keep trying to tell him but I think he is comfortable that I will help him no matter what, we have worked together for almost 14 years and over the last 3 i have helped him pick out his MF2200 and keep it in shape for his property clearing house building projects. He is okay with the idea that if it breaks I will help him fix it....not to much or a preventative maintenance guy :lol:
