Kenny!!!! For goodness sakes, he has an ELF. I agree with Maynard. Lets change his name to MR Elf. :bigrofl:

Just kidding around. I almost did the same thing.

Will you are probably right, it would be MR Elf coming from you. Maybe you need to PM him to see if he can find you one.

You know,Will,I think MR ELF would be a good name for him. Of course that would be if he wanted to change his name to that.

Thanks to everyone for welcoming me to this forum!

Welcome to GTT! Doesn't that tractor have a bell housing automotive type clutch?


Yes, it has got same type of clutch (pressure plate and disk) that can be found from manual cars. If I remember correctly clutch diameter was 140 mm (~5.5 inch). After clutch there is propshaft which transfers power to gearbox.


I have to think about that name change... :smile1:

They are rare. I believe that they have sold very few of these to Finland. I have never seen any on sale here.

Here's a couple of photos:

Am I having a flood down here? Nope, that's only Will drooling.:bigrofl:
Okay, Will there aren't many in Finland! Gotta look elsewhere!

MF Elf, as you can see, we like to poke a little fun at each other. Thanks for the pics, quite the tractor you have there. I wonder where you could find any manuals for those?

Glad you can read it, my German lacks a lot. Cool looking tractor, though.
