I'm trying to help a guy find manuals for the tube frame soft cabs.

He has a bunch of the cabs for sale, but has no manual(s). He has the manual for the 18708-A Hardtop/Vinyl Cab, but needs manuals for the soft top cabs. He has two of those caba, but is missing the hard top part.

I'm planning of buying a soft top from him if we can get the manuals sorted out.

As it stands now it seems that he has a lot of parts, but doesn't know which part goes with which cab.

Thanks
Dave

Sorry I can't help as I have no manuals for the cabs.

However, I do have a 1977 Attachment Interchangeability chart if that helps. ......It lists applications for tractor cabs # 18705, 18706, 18707, & 18708.

There is no info there describing the cabs, so I don't know if these are hard or soft cabs.

DGS345 posted on 4-18-2011 that he had found a soft cab for the 1050, and said he had the manual as well:

I'm PMed him, hoping to get a copy of it. Haven't heard anything yet.

OK guys...
I really, really, REALLY, need the manual for the soft top cabs.

I bought the whole lot of them, and need the manual for (I think) the model 18708. I have the 18708-A manual, but that's for the "Hardtop/Vinyl" cab. I'm thinking that the soft top is just "plain" 18708, without the suffix, but I'm not certain.

Everything is in a big pile, and I need to get everything sorted out so I know what I actually have.

ANY, help would be appreciated.

I don't have pics, as they are still in the bed of my pickup, but here are some pics that the guy that I bought them from posted on another forum. The pics start in post #16.

Tube Frame soft cabs??? - MyTractorForum.com -

Some of the pieces are in "like new" condition and appear to have never been actually used, while some of the others are "not so good". I plan on selling as many as I can, and will be pricing them based on their condition. I plan on keeping one of the "not so good" ones for myself.
