Sounds like it might have scored a piston or pistons. I would crack the oil plug and see if you get any water/antifreeze out of it. If the oil looks good the crank might be okay. Even without having to pull the crank, you are looking at liners, pistons, rod and main bearings, have the head and valves checked and done, oil pump, have injectors and pump checked out, etc.. Depending on how much work you can do yourself you could end up with $3000 to $4000 in that motor real quick. Those tires don"t look like 38" rubber to me but maybe they are. Witht he cab in the shape it is I would want to find a set of fenders for it and lose the cab so there is another $300 to $500. It is over $2000 now and I guess my thinking is I would have a hard time making a decent tractor out of it without being upside down in it when done. If you could find a good running drop in engine for a couple grand you might be okay but there are a lot of ifs when buying something like this. I would steer clear of it.
