Yes, they are unique to the COLEMAN axles and very rare from what I am told.

I do make reproduction double and single battery covers for them if you are ever interested. How many of those tractors were ever made? Is one nice looking unit.

WOW,& WOW again. That is great,Doug. You really know how to paint your M-M s. It would be nice to read some of the history about your 708 to other collectors. I know a little of it and it is interesting. Thanks for the picture. clint

Great job, nice to see them get restored as nice as that one. Did you do the paint job? Those big tires make it look mean. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice, Doug!

Did you really finish that in just one winter??

Do you have any "before" pics?? What all did you do to it??

Thanks for posting,
Howard

That's what I used on my UB I restored last winter. I am going to use it on my U302 next. You did a great job.
