Thank you one and all for comments and advice. I feel better after assurance thousands are as well built as the hundreds I've always really liked. The only thing remaining is power steering. I had always thought PS was standard on 1966 and later but that doesn't appear to be true. If a 3 cyl 4000 didn't come with factory PS,is it possible, pratical and worth cost to add or is it wiser holding out for one already equipted with ps? Odds are I will put a loader on it. At 1700 additional pounds plus a loader,ps will likly be necessary.

BINGO!

I tried for a several years to find a good 4000 SU (preferably) diesel with either S-O-S (I like them) or 4X2 transmission before giving up and buying a new MF 533 (the 2007, 201 CI Perkins modernized version of the 135). I wanted the LP SU version of the 4000 for mowing duties on steep ground but simply could not find a decent one.

Subsequently, I bought a second, new 60 PTO HP MF because I wanted to keep my local CNH dealer honest.

Ultimately, both MFs turned out to be mistakes and I sold both at losses, replacing both with Kubotas. Since then, I have bought three more Kubotas and there is no going back.

The 3 cylinder engine is way more rugged than the 4. The 3 diesel is very tuff the gas models if worked hard seams to have short ring life. We are talking heavy tillage hour after hour.
