Went to mow for a customer this morning and ended up in the back of a barn looking at a MF 165 with allied loader and 3pt , Clutch gone ,Power steering finnished and 14'500hrs on the clock .
He was going to scrap it . I gave him $300 and after an hour or two tinkering managed to drive it the 3 miles home . I think one of my fordson majors are now for sale and i have a new toy to play with this winter!
Today was a good day ..!

Probably started in a higher gear (once towed out of the barn). Not much need to shift after that. Once home, throttle down and pull it into neutral.

You just know D7E is one of those manly type, gear shiftin', bear wasslin' men...most of us gear guys are...

Drove a 72 chev pickup for 2 weeks sans clutch just cause the weather was bad (no garage).
