Found a 105 hydro in an upcoming sale. No battery so it didn't run. Turns over with compression. It isn't beat up and looks complete with decent original paint. It has a mower deck. The hydro lever would not move. Is that normal when it isn't running? It also had a lot of slop at the top of the steering shaft where it goes through the dash. I assume there is some sort of bushing or bearing there. How old is this thing? Anything else I should know or look for?

Hydro shift lever should move without the tractor running. You may want to try PB Blaster and let it sit for a day or so before you try and loosen it up. Can you move the tractor with the engine off? If not, there is a lever on the right hand side of the transmission cover that needs to be raised. That pushes the hydro valves down.
The steering mechanism can be rebuilt.
What's the serial number? We can tell you the year.
