    Welcome to TBN - LynchWood (er.. 1 post in goin' on 2 years).

    Have a chance to give it a test run? Steering good? Tie rod slop?

    The 9x3 tranny is a good one. Very reliable. The 3cyl. 179 C.I. engine is also a bullet-proof engine.

    Collar shift or synchro? See how she shifts (no gear complaints if it's a synchro) and if it jumps outta gear, etc.

    Loader straight? Pins loose or still pretty tight?

    PTO work OK? 3pt work?

    4,000 hours can be about right for a clutch replacement - check to see how much adjustment is left - or if it's already been replaced.

    Not a bad price.. was it a golf course tractor? With those tires it probably wasn't used in a feedlot!!

    Best of luck with your decision.

    This tractor has been on a turf farm and is'nt big enough anymore, and that is why they are trading it in for a bigger tractor

    I believe it is the same as the 5X10, I have supplied a JD link to the 5X10 operators manual that shows how to do it. Look under section 110-service-250 hours. You may want to go to selectmanuals.com for $29.95 you can get the tech. manuals.

    I also included a link to a JD service tips that speaks to this.
