Reading your posts of the talks you've had with him...

I'd give it up.
Take your camera over and take a hundred pictures

of it from every possible angle and close-ups.

When your finances are better, buy a same year, same model

tractor for MUCH less. Then, as a hobby, make a clone of his tractor.

If he puts it up for sale, have a local small dealer offer him a FAIR price for it. Then, buy it from the dealer, with some extra for the dealers trouble. In some cases, this is better than money dealing with friends or family.

My MIL was trying to put together a larger block of land to build a house on from many small lots (lot = 20' x 100') from many owners, some were second generation that inherited them from Mom and Dad who really had gotten taken when they bought them (takes 5 lots minimum to build, some were even land-locked with no road access, the road never having been built). Many wouldn't deal with my MIL since she lived near there and things were booming in that area. But she had her attorney contact them on behalf of a "client" with a slightly better offer. His secretary "bought" many a lot and sold them the same day as closing to my MIL. As she got more and more of them surrounded and she owned all the road frontage they were more willing to deal with her directly. Due to adverse possession laws she could use the lots, pay the taxes on them and own them in about 7 years anyway. More than one way to skin a cat. There was one wise guy who him and his 4 siblings inherited two lots, he didn't want to sell, the other did. So MIL bought 4/5ths of the two lots from the siblings and proceeded to build her house and grade the land. The knucklehead finally realized he was a 1/5 landowner with my MIL and eventually sold his interest to her. She's too nice, I would have told him to stuff it.

In this case I agree this might be a good way to get the tractor, give Pops enough fair offers from friends who will turn it over to you when/if they get it. Otherwise make a friend of the scrap man and offer him more if Pops contacts him.

I was lucky in that I wanted a somewhat rare Cub Cadet 86 my MIL had parked in the barn. Ask her if I could have it and she said to come get it. Now have to get it running.
