    Hello From WV.

    Hello to all of ya!
    I am from southern WV and here is my story about how I became the proud owner of a green machine.

    I traded up a JD 1530 a couple months back......Owned by an old feller that only drove it to church on Sundays....

    This tractor was sold new at a dealer less than 5 miles from me that has long since gone out of business. It lived its whole life in a 10 mile radius of where it was sold new.

    The tractor has potential. In 2012 had a complete engine overhaul at a reputable engine shop.
    It seems to run strong and hopefully just needs some love now.
    I have done a few small things to it but am not "mechanically inclined" as I have spent 30 years doing mechanic work on people

    I am really interested in learning about this unit. Right now am dealing with a lot of steering play despite new bell crank bushings, new inner and outer tie rods and drag link. Suspect steering valve needs work. Also dealing with several hydraulic leaks so I plan to look for information and will most likely be asking questions soon. Hope all will be patient as I work to make this tractor healthy again.

    Happy to be able to link to a site like this! Click image for larger version.

    That is a handsome machine and it sure looks stout. I don't have any knowledge about that model so regretfully I won't be able to help you much but I know many on here will. Good luck with it and thank you for joining us.

    Well, you are kinda my neighbor,, I am a little further south near Roanoke VA,,

    The first thing I would do is measure the toe-in,,
    the tires MUST be closer together towards the front as compared to the back.
    All you need is a tape measure,, and I am sure some manual will tell you how much,,

    If you can not find a manual, set the tires 1/4" closer together at the front, as compared to the rear.

    It is amazing how much nicer the tractor will drive with the toe-in set correctly,,
    the best part is Z E R O amount of is needed,, just a little time with the wrenches.

    That's a great looking tractor!

    Putting some weights on the front would make it look mean. Best of luck with it.
