Hey all,
I realized that I have never posted up pic's of my 716h. I rescued her last summer when I was out on a service call at a local ranch ( I'm an AG mechanic for Massey Ferguson by day.) So I get to scavenge the bone piles at the local ranches constantly....lol The old rancher that had her said dunno it just quit on me about 15 years ago never figured out why. So I loaded my new prize in my service truck and brought her home. All Alli needed was her points cleaned and a new carb. I put lots of land under the tiller over summer redoing the yards at my rentals, but along came winter so rework time was due.

So far I have done a complete rewire changed out all the lighting to LEDS. And reworked a 42" JD dozer blade to fit the chassis with out drilling any holes( I am super OCD about drilling holes in vintage equipment that is all original...lol) And the obligatory service I even used power fluid in the transmission since AGCO still stocks it.tmp_18186-20160130_105418-885768889.jpg tmp_18186-20160130_1054031158409294.jpg tmp_18186-20160125_210131-353827860.jpg tmp_18186-20160126_200608-1336129915.jpg

Nice 716H! What bulbs did you use in the headlights? I like you plow brackets. I, too, usually try NOT to drill extra holes if at all possible. Of course, I did go a little crazy with Alice.
