Looking for opinions on a legacy with the diesel engine option? Stay away or are they good?

I've owned my 2001 Legacy since 2004,  it's built like a tank, I have the kwikway older style loader and the older deck that the shaft goes to the front behind the axle, over 1000 hrs. and it still runs like a top, I've worked the daylights out of this tractor and it's tough as nails, had some issues with the lower wire harness, and replaced the front PTO shaft with the kit, every two years I take out the radiator and clean it well, this design lets grass and dirt get stuck in the lower fins, causes high temps. I would recommend one any time!

The older Legacy's have the shaft powered off the front PTO,  they have the peerless 2600 transaxle which is silver as opposed to the newer models with the tuff torque K-92 transaxle ( black) with the pto at the rear and uses the rear driven decks.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
