Bucksaw, The JD looks like a 440 not A, B, C model. Blade looks 440, side covers on engine newer? Roll cage not C.
I have the engine serial number but only a partial frame s/n. I was thinking a 440 but do not know enough about the differences in the models to say for sure.

Looks like a 440A unless itís a original 440 converted to 2 stick shifter. And itís not new enough to be a b cause it has the old style hubs

Going to definitely pass on this little 440. Itís had a very hard life. Lots of bubble gum welds,cracks, bends and leaks. Center pins are badly worn as are the steering pivot pins. Owner said he is firm at $20,000 because he had the engine rebuilt and a few other things done for $10,000.

Good move on the pass. Take some talking to get that kind of money. Mine was tight all around and I was happy at 11k. Mine was a late 60s A and that is a older model blade.

Agree on the pass.  Gave 11k for mine; rebuilt hydraulic cyl's; brakes; steering; installed new hyd cooler; and some other stuff so now have 13.5k into it including paint.  With the hours I'll put on it, it should last me my lifetime.  Here's a pic, which I've posted recently.  All the best, Rob.

Thanks. Good to know. The current owners thought a Ď79, but wasnít sure. Are Rockwell planetaries an issue?

No Eatonís are bigger but the Rockwellís are fine. I have yet to break a rear end on my 225 and I use it pretty steady and load it heavy

The TJ owner decided not to sell. The search continues.
