Hi everyone. I'm curious to know if the grille, hood and other parts from other MTD models will interchange with the 995? The 990 sure looks close to the same as the 995.

Thanks for any info!

Not sure on model by numbers, BUT, some had start gen and needed bulge on left side of hood to clear and others with standard starter had no bulge. SO, keep eye on that for your needs. Epay has parts most times for these, grills and hoods quite often. Prices vary all over tho, so shop some.

990 and 995 are two different animals. besides wheels, very few parts are the same.

I've owned versions of both machines. MTD make a bunch of tractors for private label, including Dayton, Farm King?, White, etc.  The 995 series has a Kohler M18 twin engine, while the 990 series has a 16hp B&S single. Both are great machines, but the 995s have a frail steering sector and pinion that tends to "skip" when too much load is applied when turning.

 

Regards,

I was afraid as much. I have not had much success finding parts so far. I'll keep on digging though.

Mine is a 1981 with an 18 hp twin Briggs. The steering is one of the things that needs attention on mine as well.

yeah, OK. That looks a lot like my late model White was and it had a Vanguard V-twin in it and diff modern metals then. quite diff than my 990's. Might find more as a White used.

I stand corrected... it IS a twin Briggs... I have a Dayton 3Z68B... great little machine other than the steering sector.  I plan on either putting in a Ross gear out of a JD or Cub Cadet, or power steering.  Then, I"ll convert the travel lever to foot pedal Ala Bolens and put front spindles with bearings in the wheel hubs and she'll be a screaming machine.

 

Some Parts are still available through MTD--I'm pretty sure I posted an owner's guide in the manuals section.  If not, I'll upload one right away.

 

I've posted some pics and a data sheet.  The 3Z678 was 16 hp, the 3Z678B was 18 hp.

Man that is a fine looking tractor! Great ideas on the steering. You obviously know your way around different brands of tractors! I'm just getting my feet wet.

Smitty, that IS a nice color on there. Might have to look into something like that for my 990. Is that a car paint or rattle cans or what color?  I like to paint mine diff than others just to be diff and more showy.

It was painted that way when I got it--the PO had repainted it, though the gold metal flake IS original Dayton Color. I think it was done with a spray gun as it's pretty consistent. I've seen the same body panels and hoods on other MTD-based machines as well... can't remember the brand names right off, though.
