Sounds like the 'parts' tractor I bought last summer. Didn't run and had sat outside for the last 7 years (I know because I have been watching it that long). To make a long story short, I've gotten it running, replaced the tires with some spares I had sitting around. The brakes worked, but the PO had the little lever that connects the clutch to the left brake on the shaft backwards. I took the left axle out and turned that around. Last night I replaced the drag links which had some ugly repairs on them.
