I'm sure that's true if my aim was to resurrect this tractor. But my whole purpose in buying it was to part it out. No one is going to pay shipping on a cracked block. Most people already have one of those! So, I'll post a local ad for it. Maybe someone local will be willing to pay scrap price or more for it. If not, I'll take what I can get from the scrap man, but I won't be putting this boat anchor on ebay.
The tractor had been sitting for about 20 years when I got it. The rear wheels had literally rusted off. The wheel hubs that were left wouldn't even turn in neutral. I only bought it to get a nice swing away bumper to put on my TO-30. The rest is available for parts or scrap, whichever will pay more. I've already sold the hood, grille, manifold, dash panel, rockshaft, & steering gear. It's past the point of fixing up now.
