Thanks. I am aware of the issues with tractors of this age. I've owned a few, including a 59 Case I tried to restore and finally gave up on. Guess I will keep an eye out at the next auction and see how it goes - and how this tractor runs. What little I would use it - my main work tractor is a slightly newer IT utility - I only would need a few hours a year out of it.
As I said, they are rare around here - I only remember 2 being used in the neighborhood when I was growing up - maybe this won't bring much at auction.
