I talked to the original owner today. He was very upfront on all the questions I asked. Oil changed every 300 hours. The front axle input shaft and bearings were replaced a while back. It was mainly his bailing tractor the last few years. He upgraded to a T8.300 and traded this one in as it was his oldest tracctor.

On the transmission it was a shaft inside that went and they opted for a reman from CNH. The brakes were done at that time. A few hundred hours later it had to go in again for the reman transmission he stated it needed shimming. Seems strange that a reman would have problems. He put a few hundred hours on after this second fix. This was donr at a CNH dealership in Eden WI.

The main cab wiring harness was replaced last summer also.

I am having the front axle plugs pulled on Monday at the dealership and the hydraulic flow test done. He never had any issues with the hydraulics.

Barring any major probmems found on Monday I think I will take a gamble. Either pay Uncle Sam or get something tangable.

If an engine problem arises I can put in a reman here on the farm for around 8k.

I wish you luck... Only you can judge how legit the seller's story is.
