I just got this! I wanted a class zero three point hitch.

Unfortunately, I did not get any attachments. But I'm really not looking at it as a mowing machine!

It runs good. But smokes on start up. Brakes are not working and drive is noisy. Lots of things to tinker with!

I do believe that is the twin to the Ford 195. Congrats on a rare beast of a machine.

If you have an original muffler on it could you take pics and or measurements for me? I do not have an original muffler just two canisters and it is extremely loud. looking for quieter options.

I believe it has the proper muffler. I'll have to remove the shroud to get dims and pictures. It is not too loud at all.

Yea, that's what I meant!

You should stop by. And check it out! Does your tractor have speed/ cruise control? That's tied into the brakes? I don't get how it works.



I'll be looking for the three point links and arms. But, just now I don't have any class zero attachments.

And blue and white instead of orange! Looks kinda like the great pumpkin! That grill looks kind of like some early video game with two eyes and a square mouth? I just can't quite place it though!

I'm not sure, but the orange ones may be harder to find.

Here is the Operators Manual. Includes the sheet on the cruise control.

Here is the Parts Manual.

Send me a PM with some info and the next time I'm going to ME, I can arrange to stop buy.

I do not have all the parts for cruise control. I haven't tore into that yet. working on getting her suitable for the loader project. new 4ply front tires(old ones had threads showing), and new exhaust. I do appreciate you helping with muffler pics. when you get a chance.
