I was going to look at them since the cylinder looks so good. Went on briggs site and have made a shopping list. will add valve parts to it as well.

edit: I saw I can get a whole cyliner assemebly (top part of block) for 548.75. That cheaper than a repower if it is ever needed.


That must be a short block or the like, as the cylinder IS part of the entire block and not a separate component.

Looks like she is in pretty good shape for being 33yrs old. Same year I got out of high school, hard to imagine. Thanks for the pics and update Chuck.

thinking out loud here:

had the idea lately that I might like to paint the 990 in a Ford 8n/jubilee paint scheme. frame, motor, everything red, then grill, hood, dash, and fenders gray. along with gray wheels.

Any opinions on this?

I think if that's how you want it, then that's what it should be! I think it would look great like that myself. Match the decals to color scheme & away you go!

I am not sure how I want it. These tractors came in so many different colors.

I think you are going to have your 990 finished before I get my next one restored Chuck, good job and way to make some progress.
