If my memory is correct the first ones had 'power assisted' steering and there was a tiny screw to adjust centering on top of the valve block......1/8th turn could spell disaster  ;D

as you say these young lads have it too easy with these fancy tractors with climate control, mp3 players, axle/cab suspension, 40/50k auto gear boxes etc  im only 27 but when i was riches age a 690 was a great tractor to drive and still are. i admit if i had the money i would have a nice shinney new tractor but i dont and have the 1981 jd 3040, great to drive, comfortable does the job i want and is worth a fraction of a new tractor BUT does just the same job ;) and the repair bills are much less due to less electrics to go wrong :o

i think there is more driver skill to driving the older tractors, anyone can drive a new one (within reason)
