TOH:
Thanks for the opinion, that's exactly the kind of feedback I'm looking for.

Interesting, isn't it, when we're younger we live on a "tight budget", in middle age the money seems to flow more easily, then we get older and find ourselves, AGAIN, back on a strict budget...But I suppose that's just the cycle of life.

Anyway, of course, I'd like to do a first class overhaul, but this tractor project is being financed by retirement savings and whatever I can squeek out of my social security check. And that means I'm not going to be able to do everything perfectly, I'll have to cut some cornors somewhere. So I'd sure value your opinion on how to proceed in this situation. The wife tells me I can spend $700 on this thing. So I guess a better question would be: what's the most I can do for $700?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I wouldn't call $700 shoestring tight ;-) But given your description of your budget and intended use I'd start by freeing it up, slap a fresh set of rings in it, bolt it back together, change the fluids and take it out for a test run. If it will pull and spin the mower you need for your airstrip I'd call it good to go for the time being and move on.

If it lacks power or makes worrisome noises that you can reliably identify as piston related then pull the engine and resleeve it:

Sleeve and piston kit - $160.

Boring - 4@500 - $200.

Miscellaneous bits - $140.

That's $500. If that $700 budget isn't coming out of the grand kid's lunch money you might just skip the first phase, speed past GO, and deposit $500 in the tractor. All of that presumes the lower end is not in need of attention which you really won't know for sure until you get it started.

TOH
