My neighbor passed away the after Thanksgiving. Unbeknownst to me he want me to have his beloved tractor that he cherished. Walter wanted me to have his tractor because he knew I would fix it up even though I complain to myself doing it & to you guys on the forum. As Walter health deteriorated his vision was in question. He ran into something causing damage to the hood. He removed all the covers & mower deck for years just left plow for the Winter.
I am the second owner never had a diesel before what a treat this is what I did so far. Radiator recored,New hydraulic hoses with male & female coupler for plow, Lower radiator hose that I damaged with a screwdriver,Deck belt,New wheel hub kits for deck, 2 used front draft yokes, New thermostat,Bolts for deck hangers,New battery,1 quart AG Turf classic paint. My dilemma was the pto clutch assembly thinking coil was bad but, in fact it was fine. I cleaned out & repacked the bearing that was slightly burnt just waiting for new springs & bolts for pto. Also I got to service the deck & put the mule back on. This is my first time doing anything like this but, I would like to thank you all for inspiring me to stay positive & finish. I can't wait to cut the grass!
