"Great performance, better than tractors today with the same horsepower. The only thing missing is the air cab."

"This tractor was not well cared for. I got it at a farm auction. Ag mechanics found gelled bio-diesel as the main issue. They replaced the filters to get it running. I've been slowly replacing all the fluids which were all very dirty & low.
Hydraulics now work, but I have a drip leak behind the 3 valves which only drips if i have them open when using the hydraulics. I cleaned the gas tank & am using a bio cleaner with the diesel. I still need to flush & replace the radiator fluid. I don't know yet how good this tractor is.
I found a service manual on CD on ebay & prined it out.
If you have any tips on this model, let me know."
