I have decided to leave it all original, I am going to clean it up and wax it real good to take the rust bleed thru off tne fenders and hood. I did a test spot and it cleaned up nicely. I would like to find a replacement dash for it.

I  noticed that most of the paint on my MTD Ranger Ierial is in good shape except for under the seat, where it is rusty from holding water, I guess. What did you to to your 990's fender to clean off the rust and bring out the color?

I want to do the same to my 960. ken

Well, It's home. I need to clear up that this is a White's Hardware 990, not a White Tractor Corp. White's was a Central Texas Hardware store, not sure how many stores they had.

Here is a couple more pictures to hold Y'all over til tomorrow...

I noticed that my 960 decal is different from yours. Mine says Ranger Imperial with White Stores on it, while yours just has White's on it. Interesting. ken.

Hi Reevesharry and welcome to the forum. If you post pictures of your machine, all sides and the dash area, we may be able to give a good estimate of the year and tell the model. The stickers with model info were either below the dash or below the seat. The engine can also help determine the year by the numbers stamped onto the fan housing, either on top or below the carburetor.

 

Many parts are still available for the mower deck, engine and tractor. If it is an MTD 990, we will be able to help you source the parts. Ebay is a good source, search for MTD 990. The manuals are posted here and they have the parts diagrams and part numbers listed in them.

 

I would recommend you start a new post in the MTD forum to get maximum response to your questions.

 

Do searches here and at the MTF (My Tractor Forum) MTD forum to get information on your machine.

Ken, I'm sure they may have changed up the decals at some point. Sorry I didn't respond before now, but life gets in the way some times.

I used rubbing compound, but lately I've tried using LCR rust and scale remover and it takes the rust of and leaves the paint. I would do a test spot before pouring all over your tractor.

Mine is either a 73 or 74 depending on who you talk to. Parts are out there, you just have to look around for MTD 990 parts in the usual places. Let us know if we can help.
