I didn't need to buy another tractor right now but couldn't pass it up. This is a Coast to Coast Hardware store badge MTD 990. It has a terrible paint bomb paint job over  the original paint. But it has a great dash with NO cracks or brakes in it. It also has the correct 3pt hitch with very little wear or slop. Also, the tool tray is still in the back between the rear fenders. Has the plastic rear weights on the back rims, but I'm not big on those and the rear turfs are in great shape with no cracks at all in the sidewalls. The mower deck is in great shape and had a tight gearbox.

 

Besides the paint, the only thing bad is that the steering is broken somewhere in the center of the tractor.

I tried to find someone with a large enough printer but had no luck. Was considering doing maybe a multi piece dash that bolts or rivets together to keep the pieces small. Never really went any further into it other than talk. Been extremely busy lately.

Nice score Brian! That would be about $1500.00 around here, $1000.00 if they are hurting for money.

 

Good luck with it! :thumbs:

Nice tractor Brian. A 3pt. hitch is like gold on one of those. It makes the tractor much more useful.

I may have the steering parts you need. I put power steering on mine and deleted all of it. Let me know what you find when you get in to it. I would rather give them away than junk them. I do know that I cut the steering shaft but I should have the rest. Charles

Charles, do you have a write-up somewhere of your power steering mod? Would like to see what you did.

VTX, no I don't have any documentation on it. The cylinder mounting is very straight forward. The control valve is what get's hairy. I will try to get some pics of the mounting the first time I have to remove the fuel tank and battery. Simple once the valve is mounted.
