Hello Everyone

My name is Doug and I am seriously addicted to my 73 MTD 990

I bought the tractor, snowblower, mower deck, cultivator and single plow 3 years ago, and I am currently working on getting it running. I have switched to coil to the Briggs one to eliminate the breaker box. I am currently rebuilding the carb for the 3rd time due to leakage, and I will be looking for the little washer that goes on the brass nozzle to eliminate the flooding.

I am also sanding the hood, fenders, grill and the floor console for repaint to either JD Green or JD Yellow, and I have made an open office template of the console instructions to reprint to make the decal, and I hope this may be of use for others. It is an Open Office Drawing.


Console file CONSOLE.odg

I will be also working on building a plow for the 3 point for doing my laneway this winter.

Thanks
Doug

Nice work there Doug! I am afraid of the paint colors you are leaning for, however beauty is in the eye of the painter.

Looks good.

Head's up on a typo - AXLE, not AXEL

Also, jpg file is missing "DO NOT ENGAGE PTO IF"

Paint it the new JD yellow, but stay away from that nasty green.
