Found a guy with an old B. I can buy it for $525.00 the carb is missing but the old guy claims it runs good. Has new rubber the whole way around. Missing a few trinkets and the seat bottom ( the usual ). Think it's worth the $525.00. The sheet metal is in excellent cond. not a dent or piece of rust anywhere.

If this tractor is as you say, it sounds like a pretty good deal. But be careful. I bought a 51 B
last year. The engine was not running, but it was loose. It had pretty good tin work. Back tires were very good, fronts were junk. I paid $650 for it, which ended up being way to much. Before the engine was done I had almost $700 in it. Turned the crank, new bearings, 2 sleeves,2 pistons,and all new rings. Had the head done, new manifold, all new gaskets. The tractor is almost done. It was a learning experiance for me. When I'm done I will have quite a bit more in it than I paid for it.

Farmman,

Sounds like a good deal to me! If it has new rubber all the way around on it, that's worth it right there. Those rear tires aren't cheap. I paid $400. for my B and the engine was stuck due to a missing muffler. The sheetmetal was perfect though, and it wasn't worn out. You could say everything else was as tight as the motor...Go for it!

Farmman, I paied $500 for my B. It didn't run great when I got it, it did not have any sheet metal, it didn't have an air cleaner and it needs new back rims. I think it sounds like a good buy to me, Hope this helps. TractorMike

Yes. If you get it to run with little cost even better, but if it is in good shape, tires, tin, etc. the parts are worth more than that. You may get a good deal here if you get it going, and I don't see how you can loose even if it costs you a bit to get it going. Even if the engine is stuck it still sounds OK.

is the engine free, and turns by hand. if so it is a good buy. if it is stuck, i would look a little closer on what total problem are. You cant go too wrong for that price. The parts are worth that.

Thanks for all the follow-up's. Think I'll buy her first of the week. The old fellow said he would look for the carb. He said he took it off and misplaced it. Just finished a m-h 44g anyway and need a new reason to hear my wife b***h! By the way I had a coon hound once. A black&tan. The dog ran off one night and I haven't seen him in 19 years.
