Is there one piece of literature you would like first? I can scan and upload that one first.

When I first started it up, you can a puff of black smoke and then it just hums away!
It's the power of a rhino in the size of a armadillo!

Welcome to gttalk...bunch of great old iron enthusiasts around here.
 
Nice tractor!  Great find, those are kinda rare.  Please take some close up pics of your bumper/weight holder bracket on the front.  that is cool. 
 
have you hooked up the tiller yet?

Here is the aluminum bracket the previous owner fabricated to tightly secure the front weights to the bumper.
He did a rather good job and I'll be leaving it on since it does keep them from bouncing and vibrating around.

Thank you, Sawdust!


For everyone -
I've uploaded two of the Implements Operator's Manuals.
The 44" & 48" Mower Deck Operator's Manual
And the 40" Rotary Tiller Operator's Manual

The larger Repair Manual is taking some time. It's much larger and I am taking the time to go through each page to see what scan options are best. The pages that have actual pictures, not just text and drawings, typically end up requiring more time.
Soon enough I'll have it all up there.

The big Repair manual and the Engine manual would be best for me....I can go to New Holland website for parts blow up and it has the parts that have been superceded  with latest parts numbers. Surprisingly there are still a lot of parts available.....expensive though for most... I`ve found a source for bearings and about anything Hydraulic in Bailey International. NH parts guy actually turned me on to  them when I was needing a bearing for my 14D alternator. He said I can order it for you and get it in few days or you can drive up the road to Baileys.....30 minute drive. NH $20 + or Baileys $2.19 !! He even checked the cross match and availability...Good parts man !

Keep us up on your new machine !And thanks for manuals !

That's good to know!
There are a few things that I need to address.
Leak/Crack in the Exhaust manifold top near the pipe.

I'm going to finish up the repair manual today and upload that.
Until then, there is the Brochure I scanned and uploaded as well.

Alright.
Haven't some issues with the Repair Manual.
- 258 pages of High Resolution Color Scanned Images - makes for a file size of 78MB for the PDF file
Too large to upload to the Manuals Section. (Is there someone around that could make an exception or upload it for me?
Until then, here is the Version 1.0 - Download link from my Dropbox Account:
https://dl.dropboxus...H RES COLOR.pdf


Other issue is the OCR - Optical Character Recognition only worked for pages 1-217
I'm waiting for a software support response from the PDF software company to see what can be done to resolve it. When it is, I'll upload a revision.

I was also able to upload my copy of the Operator's Manual. (48 pages) to the Manual's Section
I want to say this has gone through changes made by Ford / New Holland as the years went on. Mine is a 1988 version (just to be aware).

I got it downloaded! Scrolled through to look it over. Looks okay, but a lot of blank pages that could be edited out. I can work on that if need be. Might be able to compress it also.

I wanted to leave in the blank pages and the additional section pages to keep it original.
But if that limit is set in stone, then I can remove them and upload a revision and just keep the original if anyone wants it, they can contact me.

I did compress it already from 90+ MB down to 78MB.

With the blank pages out, it might be small enough to upload. If nothing else, make a 2 part PDF and upload it that way.
