My dad is going to help me with the gas tank...not only to help wash out any rust but get rid of gunk its going to get a dose of DAWN//water to try and break up any of the goop that the OLD gas left behind.
Pulled the sediment bowl...fittings and all this time from the tank; cursed thing was plugged almost solid at the first brass fitting. Nothing that some carb cleaner and bailing wire can't fix. Though the bowl gasket is shot...and after seeing gas again after a long time...is now TOO big around to go back in place.
Starter was beginning to act up during the failed load attempt...would just click when went back to get the tank off. Pulled it and cleaned it when got it home...must've been a half dozen heaping tablespoons of rust fall out of it. Sadly after a cleaning and re-lubing the romex engages but the starter wont turn. Fortunately a replacement has been found for about the same as a large-ish truck starter. (Was afraid it'd be a lump of cash on its own). So going to get one ordered tomorrow. ALSO, the ceramic resister going to the coil...had a Grand Canyon of a split in it...only thing holding it together was the internal wire.
Craigslist; spam posts aside its a handy place. Found numerous slim pickings there...including that first :cry: tractor. As tires go, like you I'll be lurking there too. That's where I found a few possible tractor options, though most were in conveniently placed since I don't have a means to haul on my own. I also have local options for tires, though sparse, since there are some shops that do business with tribal farms near the town I have to drive through on the way to work. Though once the tractor is home...a means is in the future.
I'd found ONE other tractor around here locally that had the same list of equipment this one has. It was that CASE mentioned at the beginning of my first post. Oh well. Definitely wanted a PTO though...the list of possibilities is FAR shorter without one. I have ideas for a small tractor-portable welding setup and sufficiently high gearing to make a WW2 bomber generator I picked up for 100$ last year spin up enough to work as said welder.
I'll see if this site will let me post pics this time instead of just links that must be copy pasted into your browser. The first attempt wouldn't let me.
EDIT: IT WORKED! Yes...sadly the Massey has had an eye put out. :( It's still sitting where you see it parked...for now. :cry:
