I am in the process of evaluating whether to purchase a specific 1961 D17 gas tractor of not.
The issue at hand involves the fact that the tractor still jumps out of Hi/Lo after a recent clutch replacement and the same shop who performed those repairs and has the tractor for sale wants additional money to repair what may actually have been a poorly performed clutch installation. However, if the recently installed clutch tension is NOT the culprit, what else could possibly be the culprit? And, what would the cost be to repair?
The tractor is located in Northeastern Missouri. Is there by chance anyone in the area the Allis Chalmer experience to conduct a potential pre-buy or, who can cost-effectively repair the tractor?
I need a tractor that can hit the field and operate without transmission or engine related issues.
Would you purchase the tractor?
What is your opinion?
Thank you for taking the time to read my questions and I look forward to reading your feedback and comments.
