Re: mf-8e and mtd 1500
Greetings from Pennsylvania.
Sounds like a nice pair or tractors. Be sure to post pics in the MF and MTD sub-forums.
Your 1500 gear drive tractor would be a 1972 model 960 and althought the gear drive models did pre-date the hydros by a couple years, yours overlaps hydro production. The top MTD tractors used 14hp engines in '71, 15hp in '72, and then 16hp in '73 and through the rest of production.
It's only money, you make more every day.
