I have a chance at a WD with a loader and plow. It has a bad wrist pin and worn sleeves. I think I can get it for about 300.00 it needs one rear tire as well. He is askin 400 but I know he will deal.. is it worth it?..... Thanks,,,,,Jim

Another way to look at it is "What are you going to use the tractor for?". If you are getting it for a hobby tractor, it is a great deal at $300-$400. You will get a lot of enjoyment out of fixing it and just having it. If you are buying it for a "work" tractor, you will spend as much money fixing it as it would cost to just buy one that will already give you a day's work. Also consider the time it will take to fix it. Here is Southwest MO, a decent loader sells for 300-400. Don't know what a plow is worth - too many rocks on my place to use one. FWIW

Look at it this way. I priced an overhaul kit at AGCO for $712. Getting a new tire mounted will be in the $250 range. So you will have $1400-$1500 in your WD. My opinion is that you will be at the value of that tractor so the decision becomes is it worth that to you. John

If it was closer I would tell you it wasn't worth it and hustle myself over there and pay him the 400 quick and take it. Check transmission for water, comes in a cracked shift lever boot. Change all oils, including the final drives.
