New to the forum and have been doing some searching for an old Ford to finish mow with...I have looked at a few but this one popped up yesterday https://wichita.craigslist.org/grd/5145774299.html
Diesel, he says 3 pt works great runs great but PTO has not worked for the entire 6 months they owned it. I know it is an 861 and not an 860 like the ad says. Seems to be a good buy, except for the PTO issue.
Told me on the phone someone looked at it a couple weeks ago and said it was out of adjustment. He wasn't sure what this meant. I am going to go look at this weekend, and want to know that I am getting into such as an expensive dual clutch replacement.
Also I know nothing about these diesel engines or their problems and durability or maintenance issues.
Any advice would be most appreciated. This post was edited by Jeepnut77 at 17:37:36 07/29/15.
