It was actually kind of a neat little tractor....definitely not a high end machine tho. All of the bushings in the steering column were toast and the linkage completely worn out. 1st. gear was for mowing, 2nd. gear was for transport and 3rd. gear was for the interstate. It was easy to see everything was original on it but the top speed was at least twice what my 312 moves. t was downright frightening with the steering the way it was. It did give a surprisingly nice cut in low gear though.Cool, it looks like a shrunken 960!
