And you are going to luuuuuuv the looks of that Standard diesel smoke screen device in your yard... I thought the F40 was ugly... this is so ugly she's cute! What I am amazed at... she steers like it had power... with the same rod and post affair as the 40... that can barely turn with 2 men and a boy! So I assume the steering on the 40 is messed up, kind of a nice suprise..

That 40 was on a trailer and headed for the scrap yard when George rescued it.... I am surprised everything wasn't rusted solid on it. Looking at the pictures, it has come along way.

Just started that 40 this noontime, fired right up, sounded nice, only went in a straight line, so didn't have to curse the steering. I did curse the 5 point hitch mower still hanging on the back... I have a junker MF50, if push comes to shove, the steering from both can make one I hope. AND if that don't do the trick, I have bits and pieces of a power steering unit off a 65 a YT/ford feller junked... I wouldn't have minded having the whole tractor, sometimes yer lucky, sonetimes you ain't....
Thinking back the biggest PITA on the 40 was the leaky lower hitch pin, biggest expense was the seat cushions! 107 bucks? never again... I think this 50 will get an oil change and do the bushogging straight off. Oh, it needs a seat cushion....@#$%

Maybe we can do a group buy on seat cushions. I have a set on my 35, but missing on the 85. I was hoping to find a set at a show this summer.
