    Default New to me 1710 2WD... Maintenance tips??

    Just purchased a 1710 2WD. engine seems to run great, needs a clutch. Going to change oils/filters... gotta fix the charging system. What else needs to be done? Anything specific to this model to look at or watch out for?
    Seems I heard something about changing the oil in the governor but cannot find any specifics..??

    Awesome tractor. I also have a 1710. It's not the governor that holds oil, it is the injector pump. Only a few ounces I think (15W40) For sure check the bolts that hold the front end to the tractor. They have been known to become loose on these old Fords.

    I do not know if TSC sells service manuals, but I found a very detailed service manual on Ebay.
