Help What old kubota mini tractor?


Could anyone help us identify Gramps' mate Phil's old mini tractor, please. I just put some photos up in the gallery here, which are also viewable in my flickr gallery;

We need to get the gearbox apart, because he thinks there's a broken selector fork dropped into it.
I reckon it's worth restoring.
What do you think?
Cheers,
Stephen

Hello, Stephen

Sure it's worth it.

Man, that's a beautiful machine and would look very handsome restored.

Maybe, our moderator Volfandt will recognize what model it is or, you could shoot him a PM?

Good luck with your research!

Mark

Thanks Mark, That's very encouraging. I have a suspicion it's an Australian only model, but it might have a US version. I appreciate your comment, and your avatar looks great. Cheers, Stephen.

that's a really cool looking old Kubota... I'd love to be able to get a small 4x4 diesel one day, something pre-1990. My grandpa had a Kubota 7150, I know it's not the same class, but it was my 1st and only "real" tractor I've had much experience on. So just for family sake do it!!!

Thanks for your encouragement also. You look pretty flush with your tractors there! Well done. Do you know anyone who could identify my Gramp's wreck?
Thanks, SN

Mansedwellers,

Try these folks 'cause they're very well connected in the world of Kubota:

Welcome aboard Stephen. To tell ya the truth, I can't tell a thing by the pic, other than it definitely looks salvageable
The link Mark provided to orange tractor talks may be your best bet as they KNOW the grey market Kubota's over there. Alot of the greys we see here are legal down your way and you may be right in that it could be an Austrailian market machine.
Good luck w/it
Dave

Thanks Volfandt, It's a legit Kubota, but so old we can't even find a model number. Are there any over your way with 667cc motors and two forward gears, one reverse? Have you ever heard of R70V ?

can you post the full resolution photos on your flickr site along with some up close of the frame or anywhere you see any numbers/letters??

I see 'kubota' on the rear fender lettering, what's below that, just dashes or some kind or wording?
