    I just recently purchased a 1991 skytrak 6000m. I'm having a really hard time finding parts. I found service maneul thru Google books store and parts diagram but no place to order parts. All the light bulbs on dash are missing except the auto level. However my main concern is the loss of brakes. They work great when the pressure is there and not at all, randomly usually at idle. Have to hit N and rev motor to regain brakes. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Looking at the brake accumulator tank and pressure release valve once I get in the shop?. Apart from that the crab steering doesnt work, I need to order hydraulic filter, the dash warning lights, a couple of cab fans, and transmission temp sensor Screenshot_20190922-193425_Gallery.jpg . The heater fans sound desperate also, but other than that everything 20190922_152138.jpg 20190922_152138.jpg is in great shape. Had a close call with the brakes not working, took a semi wrecker to pull out of pond. It almost made it out on it's own, but I didnt want to push my luck and waited on wrecker
