    Are they what there cracked up to be?
    Main things to watch for?
    Anybody got one for sale?
    And yes I've Findlay convinced dad that a 4cyl would do

    Very good tractors, but their over 20 years old now! Or very close. problems? Head gasket especially 6400's that have been turned up and used hard. Gearbox? Very reliable, but the plates delaminate if the oil isn't changed often enough. rear lift arm cross shaft splines wear out. At this kind of age your going to get things like the radiator leaking, control cables failing etc. FOR SALE.? I'll never sell mine!

    All positive then!
    Mostly small problems! Would be getting gone through front to back anyway!
    Not going to do very much/ any proper work anyway!
    Seems hard to fine!

    Dad must be the most indecisive person on earth I can't even properly look for anything because he keeps changing his mind!

    Hmmm transport isn't as much of a problem as first thought! We got a quote for Manchester to home from a local guy and it was about £1000 not to bad!
