Thanks much for posting the link twostep! I try not to look up too much stuff, as a form of financial self protection, if ya know what I mean. :D
I don't have the time to finish a 3pt on it this year, but the 430 will be at the field on plow day for sure. You are VERY welcome to drive her around!

I never pass up a chance to drive Denise's F350 Powerstroke, so I kinda invited myself to go on what turned into a great day for a road-trip. PLUS I wanted to make sure Daniel did not take red rattle can paint to make it red before it even got on the trailer!! The PO said we were close on the trade I offered him but with a new baby he needed cash more. Cash is a little short around here so no 3rd 430 for me. Very glad to see Daniel get it and when we got there the extra parts he had (one of the front tires is brand new/ fluid filled rears) made the deal just plain unbelievable.

Already see that there is no selling this tractor. The tight turning radius is amazing! Lots of little things to be done to her, but nothing major at all. It has sprung a leak under the fuel filter, but it just rests against O-rings, so they likely need replaced. Runs like a new one! Hours are at 776.

Not done much with the 430, as I've been cleaning up our shed so I can park my F250 back inside. It's been crammed with stuff from siding the house, and a lot of trash from the project. All ready for the truck, but for now the 430 is parked there. I did mow my yard with her, and she runs like a new one. The deck digs divets from the yard now & then, so I have to figure how. It's not the swivel caster wheels though. Otherwise, it does a real nice job! One major problem......I hate hand hydro control! I may just have to do some fabricating for a left side hydro pedal system!
