Some times in life you get to a point where you just have to much crap.  I got rid of all my garden tractors and parts except for the 320JD, a couple engines, and a few other parts.  I also trashed a couple truck loads of other crap non GT related.  I must say it feels good to be able to actually do stuff in the shop.   The 320 has a few minor issues and the deck doesn't go high enough to clear some obstacles in my yard.  I worked out a deal and a guy is bringing me this and cash.  I know the deal isn't official until my butt is in that seat.  He should be down about 6 tonight.

Runs and mows.  I did notice the top link bracket is missing.   I also wish the 3ph was on its own valve.

I am spending my days cleanning up my shop and yard and am making progress. I hope to get rid of 20 to 30 LTs this summer. It will feel good when I'm done. Good Luck, Rick

That's a good looking 990 and it even has the tool box on the back end, most of those are gone because you have to remove it to check the hydro oil. You will like how much you can do with that tractor.

All good parts were pulled off and sold or put on the shelf.  all damaged sheet metal and frames went to the scrap yard.  So yes even the massey is gone.  I did keep the 3ph and engine from it.

That IS a nice 990!  Hope it works good for you. Lots of parts on epay for those, or ask on here or MTF, they have good guys on MTD list also.  Don't see how or why you need to lift deck higher???  Wouldn't really think any brand would be much higher than another??  You just like Red and not Green really, huh?

Clean tractor. The hydro lever and throttle won't stay where I put them so that will need to be addressed sooner than later.
