880 Selectamatic Repairs

Hi

I have been gathering some spares to restore my 880 to working condition.

First job is to replace the water pump, thermostat, hoses and belt. Are there any 'tricks or traps' that I need to be aware of. Any other useful advice would also be gladly accepted.

Thanks.

The 1190 is a bit beyond my budget for now. Can you describe, in a little more detail, the defects you can see on this 885?

Tractor Identification Required

Hi I'm a new member from down under. I've recently inherited my dad's old tractor.
