Thanks everyone for your help. I am still trying to figure out the mighty Mac chipper and how to hook up the tiller. Anyone know where to find the model number on the chipper?

This picture looks just like mine, why would the wheels and such be repainted?

How do you post a picture at the front of the post? I see others have a picture below the topic.

Any help with the right filters and fluid would be appreciated. Or anything else an experienced person could help me out with taking care of this cool tractor would be very helpful.

Hello , nice tractor, parts are still available for your Mackissic hammermill shredder thru them , when I rebuilt mine (couple years ago) I ordered new hammer knives, spacers, and a screen from them, your model is NLA but the parts interchange. Also the hammers are reversible. Tiller mounts on the rear axle you'll see two mounting ears the tiller arms attach to, it takes ALL FOUR pins for proper operation the two upper for attaching it to the tractor , the two lower ones to keep it from riding or bouncing up and allowing the tiller's shaft to hit the axle! ( or vise-versa sorry been awhile since I mounted one up) I like Shell Rotella straight 30w in the engine. I use a Wix 51307 for the hydro filter and Brad Penn universal hydraulic fluid in mine. If your on the West coast TSC has the 'red' fluid that will work. I'm looking for the air filter element, I get mine from NAPA, sure some one will chime in with correct info. Also there are several of our sight sponsors who can and will help you with many of the parts for your 76 if needed. Good luck

Here is the Wix air filter element # 42373 ( it can be cross referenced)

If you have any questions ask away, lots of knowledgeable guys here.

I do stock the OEM spec filters for the hydro transmission and the paper filter for the engine, if your interested just send me a PM

 

 

This picture looks just like mine, why would the wheels and such be repainted?

 

If you zoom in you can see parts of the engine area have older paint showing. It appears it was painted with everything still intact and not taken apart. They sure did a decent job though, usually people get paint all over the decals and tires when they do this.

Biggest thing you want to make sure of is you use the correct hydro filter,I have seen a lot of the Large Frames with just any old filter,STP,Fram,AC oil filters,there is a certain micron they recomend,can't remember off the top of my head what it is

I am rethinking the tranny fluid change. The fluid looks bright red and clean. I usually replace all the fluids when I buy anything so I know for sure when it was done. What do you guys think?
