    I recently put money on a Ford loader and when I went to pick it up the "no major problem tractor" now has what he diagnosed as a linkage problem :angry:. Now he says that the only way to know what the problem is, is to open the "bell housing" and fix it at $65.00 per Hr. ( estimated 18 hr ) :eek:

    The tractor runs VERY strong, Good power steering, Great hydraulics, etc.
    And the dealer is asking $4900.00

    So what do I do? Buy it and fix it on my own? ( probably means pay some one ells :p) Is this a good price? The problem is these tractors are not easy to find and I am running out of time (need it by winter)

    What I can tell is: you have no neutral, you need to start it in 1st or revers (you also cant go from forward to revers)

    Any input? how hard are these to work on


    Thank you,
