How's the price? Tractor looks very well maintained but it looks like the lift mechanism is gone if I ever wanted to use it for anything else (but why would I^). The curved subframe is intriguing.

Is that a power steering cylinder or just a shiny spot on the steering rod?

Bob, what do you think has been done to the engine...or just that it has been replaced? Anything other than 7116's is a whole new animal to me.

id="quote">Probably got a newer engine. That one has a gear starter. The 7000's had SG's. That probably has a Magnetron ignition also.About PS. Might be as steering wheel is higher then normal. But I think he would have posted it. Look frame over very closely for cracks. His 500 lift lift is a pretty tough grunt for that frame without beefing it up.
