Chuck, great tractors aren't they! You have one in very good condition too. I see the plastic dash is like most, missing some edge? Nice hood support system added!
I only drove it around the house once or twice. I saw how capable they were on MTF and then I wanted one.
Yeah the dash is missing some edges. I plan an rebuilding them back and doing my best to reinforce the area. If if ends up looking half as good as your 990 I will be happy.

I've got a 1977 "I think" model 800 I was going to restore, but to many other projects going, so I think I'll send it to auction the 1st of april.got it along w/others at an estate sale last year , came w/mower/snow plow/& all original manuals. runs & works OK, but smokes bad, probably needs overhauled.

I've got two 990s. One is a Unico 15 which looks like Daniel's before picture, and a Kingwood 16. I don't have very good pictures right now, but will post them in my profile when I get some.
Hey, yours looks MUCH better than my before picture, I can assure you of that!

hi, like to know if you still have it for sale, thanks Tony R
Mine is for sale Tony, and you're fairly close too. I have the deck, but not restored the deck yet. It's solid as nails, good slick spinning spindles & good blades. Could be put to mowing as-is.

For you guys who are interested, contact Daniel. Not to bash the JD, but the MTD 990 IMHO is superior to a 140H1. Parts can be a challenge, but that's part of the fun, right? The 990s are limited slip rear ends, have tons of torque, and so square and simple that even an untalented guy like me can make most any bracket he needs.
