Thanks for the info it does have the H pattern, what transmission would be better the peerless 2300 or the roper 633?

Both are really well built, but I would assume the 2300 since the case is cast iron instead of aluminum. But gotta remember that adds weight

Well actually in that new of a tractor it will be the AYP version of the 633a, which is called a 122x series or something like that. A little bit lighter duty than the old 633a's, but still really tough!

Ok thanks for the info it does not have a did lock but would it have independent brakes? Or would you have to mod that.

You would have to mod that. @mr.modified made some interesting brakes that you could easily make separate of each other. They are on his Simplicity adventure edition. He can explain them better than I can but they worked well from what I understand

Gunna be a fuse between a workhorse and a mid range racing mower, aka high low shifter, since our farm needs a tractor that can pull a few hundred pounds at a time up hill usually a 30-40 degree angle this tractor will be perfect. I have this tractor (or one similar) it has a strait shift but needs to be replaced due to heavy frame, hood, and engine damage, also the head gasket if broke from the cylinder to the valves, and from the valves to the outside, I put 2liters of oil all gone in at least 5 days because the leaking is so bad.

since our farm needs a tractor that can pull a few hundred pounds at a time up hill wrote:

For what its worth, and Im not sure how much was in the wagon... but my sears dont pull uphill well. I dont have wheel weights so that might have been my problem.

Just something to think about.

There is no mower deck but I could find a mower deck for a 318 pretty easily and just put it on it. He’s asking 1100 but he’s open to any offers he hasn’t got back to me but I said 500 cash and I have 2 tractor without engines if he wants one.

And of course, he wants 1100 for it, so that’s another no.
