Another M

Postby DanR » Sun Sep 12, 2010 6:53 am

I picked up an M yesterday just for the tires. It is not like the other M I have so I will have questions. What is the bar sticking out of the grill attached to the steering? Are the shutters an option? All together this M is in better shape than the other one except the engine is stuck.

The bar slides the front mounted cultivators side to side when you turn the wheel. The shutters would indicate that the tractor was designed to run on distillate.

Agreed--however shutters could be an option on a gas engine. Suffix codes on the serial number tag should confirm for sure.
