I bought a pair of tires at a garage sale last month----it just so happens there was a red and silver tractor stuck between them. The paint on the hood is extremely faded and barely shows a 30 and to the best of my judgement it's a MF 230. The ser. no. is 9A336957 which leads me to believe it's a 1980.
I'm looking for a fuel filter (diesel) and the Baldwin book shows BF884 which is completely different than the one that's on it. The one I removed is Wix and the last three digits are 118.
The tractor has been out in the weather for several years and I'm getting fresh fluids in it before attempting to start it. The fuel filter did have some water in it. I did remove the inlet line at the lift pump and didn't get any water from the tank which surprised me.
Should I check the lines to the injector pump for any signs of rust? This diesel stuff is all new to me.
