As an aside David, I have had this tractor for 12 years and it has been excellent with no problems at all. I live in Pennsylvania, USA, and it is not uncommon for it to get to 0 F. in the winter. Even at that temperature, the tractor (perkins diesel) starts within the first revolution and it doesn't have any glow plugs, heater or use of any help. Quite impressive. I also must say that it uses very little fuel. It is by far, the best tractor that I have owned in this size and range (Ford Jubilee, Ford 861 gas, Ford 3000 diesel, and Case 480ck). I have also put a front end loader on it. I will post pics of the repair.
