@RockeyDA I am not sure my tractor is not in running condition right now. I think the main reason is your 990 and my 960 has no suspension besides the seat suspension.

my ford wheeler dont even have seat suspension, but i dont feel every little rock on the ford, maby its the fact i have car tires on my 990. but i feel every little thing on the 990. even if a rock gets stuck in a tread.

@RockeyDA the main reason why on your four wheeler you don't feel the rocks is they have a frame suspension, and that takes out the bumps.

@Creepycrawler I do have one in mind,this project is on the back burner for now, I got some other projects i need to get done first.I will most likely take me about year and half to get the tractor done.

thought I would give a quick update: I bought another tractor same model, but with a tiller, one bottom plow, and a snowblower. the tractor has a newer clutch and RAGB. The reason why I haven't been working on it is I have my Wisconsin water pump rig to do first. still have one from tractor to get for parts.

Happy July 4th
the tiller and the snowblower are actual mtd implements, but the plow is a Brinly, the reason why I know this is I also got a brochure and the manual for the plow, snowblower, tiller, and the engine, which are really hard to find. My plan is to put the guts in blue one I got due the blue one has better tins, dash, and stickers. or the same respect just put all the good tins and dash on the one with the implements. the one I am going to get for parts has factory wheels weights, so when I am done I am going to have a trio of MTD 960/860 tractors, and only one or two are going to run. And I also did find out that the blue one is a 860 due it has a 12hp briggs instead of a 14hp briggs. here is the parts tractor I plan on getting: 1969 MTD 960 Diesel build - Page 2 Screen17

Sweet finds! I'm getting jealous over here too. Are all 3 going to be made into 1 diesel one or are you going to have a diesel one and a gas one? You can probably make 2 running ones easily.

Sorry for the late response, I have been dealing with my car that has been failing,  I am going to make one running tractor out of the three, due parts are getting hard to find. plus I will be getting a Wheel Horse b-80 with mower deck, snowblower and a front blade. Plus I will have a 1988 MTD grass cutter tractor too, so three running tractors and a two parts will be enough for me.
