    Default Got first tractor - MF 230

    I think I got a pretty good deal...

    1978 gas MF 230. 1094 hrs. Power steering, 3-pt, remote hydraulics, apparently new rear 12.8 x 28 ag tires.
    Included home built 6' scraper. Tin is all good, except very minor dings on left fender and paint is faded.

    Issues are electrical (most lights need rewired), battery connectors have rusted bolts & are not tight enough. Exhaust leaks at muffler, runs rough (found plugs are very fouled and seems to have slight leak at carb gasket. That's my first concern for safety. (I'd like some advice on that.) I bought service manual (PDF file) but do not have owners/operators manual. I drove it prior to purchase - gears, power steering, PTO, 3-pt lift, double clutch all work.

    Best part, got it for $1800.

    Glad to find this site and forum. --Greg, N California
