Not surprising. But good to know beforehand.
An update on the tractor...

It's all paid for and Bill of Sale in hand. THEY had one made up and so did got 2 copies. Then headed off to work on my prize.

First checked the fluids...radiator still had coolant in it so didnt quite take a gallon to fill up. Heck...a 58 Dodge I had that sat for nearly 30 years...still was damp under the radiator cap. Oil level is between the marks and of reasonable consistency. Once I get it home all fluids are getting changed out.

Without a key...either its over in New Mexico or lost elsewhere...pulled the ignition switch (had one at home but forgot to bring it) and got the connection jumped. A push-button is already in place to actually do the cranking. It cranks over...GOOD! A quick spray of starting fluid in the carb and it kicked over and ran for a second...EVEN BETTER!

Gas tank was dry (to be expected), so put in just over a gallon. Sadly no fuel began dripping out the hose I'd disconnected at the carb. Pulled the bowl...had rust in the bottom and even with the valve open nothing came out of the tank...but a spurt of compressed air took care of this.

At the moment the fuel supply is the only hangup. It's getting enough of a trickle (wont flow) to run while sitting but not enough when trying to move it...tries to die. So going back later today to pull the tank to make cleaning the outlet less of a hassle.

As for the hydraulics, its definitely low and//is in need of attention as the 3pt will seep back down when the engine is off. But the lift will stay up on its own...

Tires...well lets say that its certainly in the realm of possibility that the rears have possibly only been changed out 1 time...and probably more than 20 years ago given the state of dry rot. The fronts are holding up (after removing the blocks under the front) but are nothing a couple heavy truck tires cant fix.

All in all...seems that its 1200$ well spent given that a stubborn fuel supply is the only thing preventing it from being loaded up.
