  1. what would be a good source for the parts i need? i am in Memphis, tn. not really wanting to remove the final drive to replace the disc, what would be the downside of not replacing the disc as i am just using this machine on my own property and it will not get that many hours on it. thanks for all the input so far.

  3.

(additional information that may help is that before i bought the machine i checked it out on an open lot and it turned right and left on a dime but it did not have any brakes at all). after the jam nut/adjuster screw procedure i ran the machine down a slight hill and discovered that with both levers in the mid position the machine will roll and if i pull the left lever fully back the left trac
  9. Hello everyone, new to the forum and seeking some sage wisdom. I have searched the forums and haven't really seen anything that covers what i am experiencing . Just purchased a 1974 TD7E and I am having issues with turning right and no brakes. It is the large transmission with the short drive shaft, the issue with turning is that it will not turn to the right. if i let the engine go to an idle with the right lever pulled all the way back it will turn right for a short time and then it will stop turning to the right as power is increased. and then sometimes it will gently turn to the
