Thanks for the replies. Sorry, I've been off line for a few days.
I'll check the VIN and report back. Thanks for the info.
The tractor moves fine in reverse. Although, I've only reversed about 20 feet total. Backing it into it's parking space.
Yes, I've found a local tractor mechanic who has a great word of mouth reputation. Once I can get back up there, I'll contact him and get it in for a check up.
