Well guys my scrap price 45 seems be even better and better. Dad and I took it for a tow since we had the brake fluid in the cylinders over night we said what the heck. I towed him and he put it in gear and used the hand clutch to feather it in. I felt him hit it the first time and thought no way is that engine comming free. I was about ready to tell him lets take it back to the barn when he feathered the had clutch again and off that baby roared!!!!! ! well not running but it sounded like it becasue we had all the plugs out and when it was rolling over it was kicking all the oil out the holes and it looked like it was running.
Earlier in the dad dad had cleaned the carb and tried to get the crud out of the tank.
I worked on the points which I need new ones but anyway I rolled it over plugs out took a little hand torch and hit the plug holes woosh it said on each hole. That is good we got gas. put the plugs in hit the starter and it roared to live blowing a cloud of crude and fall out all over the place. Then it quit after running a few minutes. Found out that no gas was getting past the sediment bulb. got gas flowing and she fired up again and I took it for a ride but it quit again. Same problem no gas. At this point we left it in the field it was late. Dad is going to take the tank off and try to get the rest of the crap out. Gas looks like a nice rust color.
Thanks for listening guys! tough thing now keep it or sell it? dang I love this hobby

You just doubled the value by getting it running, now, get it to run well and find out what other problems it has. Pay particular attention to the transmission, the clutches and the brakes. If all of that is good you have a keeper, otherwise it is a parts tractor and you should be able to triple your money and trade up.
