Frustrated by Eaton 7 hydro. Weak with slipping belt. Now leaking badly. Ordered another one off EBAY. Ready for replacement on arrival. Ready for take two on this otherwise perfect, vintage Ford TY16H.

Mine was leaking at two different hoses, but I repaired them. Mine is a YT16H ford also. Had some belt slippage on the hydro belt. Put a quality belt on there and adjusted the idler pulley. Had no more belt trouble. Noel

I'm keeping the Ford for level, light duty mowing. Looking forward to seeing it run strong again. I'll be buying a used full sized tractor later this spring. However, I have been curious in researching the older, Gravely, rear engine line of garden tractors. The engine and transaxle appear to look bullet-proof strong. Would this be the reason this brand of tractors bring such lasting high value?

True on the gravelys, but they were more expensive when new than the fords or other common name tractors, I would think. Noel
