    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    Hi there, First time poster with an opportunity at a '68 140 H3, serial is something like 02036. Browsing pics of the 140 I notice some have dual brake pedals. When did they do this? Was it an option? When did they put the notch in the frame for the points? The serial seems too low for this...

    I bought this a few years ago to do a few projects, they got done (moving about 60 yards of gravel and about 100 yards of dirt), and it's been sitting in my garage ever since. I hate to let this go, but I would rather have the space in my garage back. The loader works great, but the left-hand...

  12. 140 H3 - How do you remove the hydraulic levers??

    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors
    I'm fixing a '73 140 and sat out for 2 years. Hydraulic levers all move together in one motion rather than independantly. I removed the set screw on the last arm on the inside (and the linkages to the spool valve obviously), but damn thing won't come off. Am I missing something, as I don't...
