Check operation of the 2 stage clutch, make sure it works as supposed to. There are two settings at the clutch pivot arm, the pin needs to be in the inner hole (pedal high) to get the 2 stage effect.
Look for excessive oil drippings around the breather/filler tube at the front of the engine. Could be an indicator of excessive blowby.
Check to see how the 3point works in position control. Do the arms move in correlation to the touch control? If not could be worn cam and follower pin.
If rest-o-ride seat is still on, check operation. Good or flat? If no suspension left in seat new new torsion springs (rubber) are $100.
Oil pressure should be strong ~20+ at idle hot. Less could be bad gauge or bearings. Higher rpm should be well over 40.
Other than that should be normal stuff to look for. I have one and they are darn good tractors. Way more power than the N and still pretty nimble. I really like the live hydros and live PTO for mowing.
