    Isn't that a releif? I find most of the trouble with these tractors are user inflicted or maintenance related. They have to be serviced.

    Are your SCVs leaking? Mine are and I'm replacing all of them with Stucchi brand push pull and connect under pressure. I was going to go flat face but I'd have had to replace all the implement male fittings.

    BTW, my clutch linkage was installed backwards when the 95 was delivered and we also broke off the shuttle shift lever at the base. I told the son nobody could fix it and left him in the shop one day when he was home on leave. Two hours later he drove the machine out to the field! Never fails, there is a sucker born every day! I knew he couldn't take no for an answer, he is that way.

    Be sure to lube the linkage for the shuttle shift. It gets shipping corrosion and there are no bearings in the complex linkage and it doesn't call for lube. I'll eventually replace mine with some bearing linkages in the winter when I have nothing better to do.

    Watch out for the temptation to shuttle shift while still moving.

    Watch baler twine getting around the front wheel bearings. I had a renter who didn't know how to ranch and left all his twine all over the place. It'll cut your seals to pieces.

    Also take care of your pto clutch lever and adjustment. The end fitting is made out of plastic and will slip. I potted mine on the 80 with Lead like making a mollyhokem. I need to do the 95 now.

    BTW, you do have an owner's manual?

    I bought all the shop manuals, some good and some not so good. I figure if I ever have to split the tractor I can figure it out.
