It does! My wife is loving it so far. I ran it for an hour and she ran it for about 30 minutes yesterday after we got back.
Couple little issues but nothing to big to deal with so far.
The 3pt when under load (load raised) settles and every 10 seconds or so it will lift back up...anyone know what is causing this? Is this normal? Is it critical to fix right away?

When I bought it the gentleman I bought it from says he always turns off the fuel bowl valve when not in use. Said he always has. If its not turned off gas drips from the Carb...Again, is this normal? I had an old 9N with the glass bowl and I never had to turn the valve off. Seems like kind of a pain to have to remember every time, I can just see myself forgetting to shut it off and then having gas all over the garage floor when its parked.
The only other thing was, it ran great while I was mowing/dragging for about an hour but then when my wife was running it after about 25 minutes of driving and then using it for dragging it started to sputter out when under load...if you would stop and let it sit for a bit and then start out it would run fine for a little bit (like 30 seconds or so) and then start to sputter out again. Really acting like it wasn't getting enough fuel.
Anyone have any ideas where I should start on the troubleshooting for that?

Also I would love to add a drawbar (don't care whether it swings or not (in fact might prefer a straight so as to avoid any contact with the 3pt arms) anyone know where I might search to get a draw bar?

I made a swinging drawbar for mine out of scrap in just a few hours. Not much to them.

Nice find- and power steering to boot!

Sputtering caused by not enough fuel is common when the inlet/sediment bulb fixture is partially plugged- but it usually happens not long after you start using it. To diagnose, next time it sputters, pull choke out and see if you can adjust choke so it runs good.

But if it ran fine for over an hour, then sputtered, I'd suspect the vent in your fuel cap is plugged. Next time it does it, loosen the fuel cap and see if you get a "whoosh" of air into the tank.

Replacing the fuel cap is one of your easier repair operations. . . LOL

I think the fuel cap is fairly new but I'll look at it when I go back down to the farm tonight.
As far as the other, this tractor has been garage kept and very rarely used the last couple of years so its possible that all my running it yesterday got some fresh sediment on the screen and that after nearly 1.5 hours of running might be slowing the fuel flow. I am going to take a flashlight to the tank to see what the inside looks like and check the bowl screen to see what I'm dealing with. :)
