I picked up a 411 LP the other day, and I am wondering what to do with it. I have been looking for this particular tractor for a while now. This is the first tractor my grandfather bought, and what my father grew up driving. I would really like to fix this up and use it for some light mowing, blade work, and maybe the local tractor pulls.
The problem is the motor is stuck. I have put diesel in the cylinder and have tried to pull it 3 times now with no success. Also, the rear tires and rims are shot, the gear shift is really sloppy, the pto doesn't want to spin even when its out of gear, most of the tin is good, but the finders are shot as well.
It looks like I could easily spend 3-5k fixing this up. And I don't really have the money right now. It would take several years for me to get this all going.
What do you guys think I should do?
Also, would an engine from another model tractor fit this?
