Have decided to let my 990 go, no time or place for it.  Not sure year, but think early 70's. Is a Farm King. Has three point hitch, not on tractor right now. Wiring a bit messed up, but can hot wire to run and drive or have switch to try to put in now. Brake pedal is rusted tight, won't move. Drive lever works and lift works. 16hp briggs with standard starter, not start/gen on this one.  Asking $300250 or might trade for Speedex or Economy Power King items or tractors. Huntington, IN 46750  or PM me here.

Update:  Went out an put on switch I had gotten for it. Now ignition works. BUT, now the starter stripped it's gear! SO, off to store tommorrow and will be getting new drive kit. I have another pair of fenders for it too, nicer shape. Also have three bolt spindles, hubs and wheels I was going to put on, never got to it.

Got a gear kit today and should be on soon!  Tried to put the upper link bracket on back for hitch, but the toolbox is in way, can't get it high enough to bolt. HMMM! Hole cut in box? Remove box?  Might be why many have box missing?  Next guy can deal with it. Starter is on tractor and working good. Tractor changes tune all the time it is running, some kinda carb issue I guess. Went for drive today and tried it out. Starting to put the 3pt on and found a third mount bolt below the others for the upper link bracket. Had to remove the trailer ball on back to get it in there, but is now on and bolted up, tool box is fine.

Starter working fine. Put the hitch mount on, lower position, had to take the tow ball off, was in way. 3pt on and goes up/down OK. New fuel line and filter. Been running around with it some and running better each day. Greased up the steering and working better now and can really USE that "Knecker Knob" on it.

Worked on tractor and oiled and greased points underneath and now moves nice and easy. Even the brake/clutch is working again and moves to Neutral and brakes grab tight!  This rig is getting better and better each time, might have to raise price! :D
