I just drained the fluid pulled the shifter top off this 1953 TO-30 and the cleanest Transmission I ever saw was befor my eyes! Blew me away it must have be changed out not long ago because it shows no wear and you can see all the way to the bottom of the case in the picture. Very happy with this on!! Mark H.

Better buy that Lotto ticket Mark!

I worked wth a feller that had a real bad stutter. If he were to see that photo he'd say:

"Ssssssss sssa ssapuuurrrb"

Good to see such a find.

Now what? Better look for one with a bad front end and a good back end. With the karma you got going you'll find it too. Nice Mark, real nice.

I did find some wear on the Howards 2 gears but no broken teeth. Would have liked it to be nicer but most are broken when you find them or busted teeth. Can't complain the rest of it has been nice! Mark H.

I drove out to the eastern shore of Virginney today and picked up the Howard tiller I bought last week. It is an older one and you have to take a plate off of the gearbox to change the gears. I hope to take some photos this weekend.
Sure hope it looks like yours when I open it up.
Might be, the tines look like new, and they are original to the tiller.

I'll let you know, AND, if I find what you found then I will buy a Lotto ticket FOR SURE!!!!

good example of when people look after their equipement and change their oil.

That sure helps! Most just change it when a problem happends with the pump or transmission then it is to late. Mark H.

The person who safety wired those bolts should not apply for a job in the aviation industry.

They don't fly tractors so they just keep parts from falling into the trans if they come loose. Mark H.

Mark,,If they dont fly tractors then why are the new ones built to MACH2 wind tunnel specs on the outside?

They do put enought Stickers telling not to do things that it is hard to see the paint anymore. With the new GPS units you can now program how you want your field plowed and just listen to the CD in the AC Cab while you kill time. Mark H.
