Belly Blade on 42 model B??

I was looking at a 42? model B that had a small grader type blade w/ a hyd. cyl. was that an option??? There was also a 1/2 moon shaped drawbar? that went with it along with a single bottom plow. It was also shod with IB tires(diamond looking pattern, small grooves). Is this correct for a 42 B ???? Not running, motor not stuck, all there except for the gen/alt(near as I can tell), tires up(but looking a little old), and rusty as all getout - is it worth the 600 I'm thinking about paying of it.

there was a belly blade, but i cant say if yours was original or aftermarket. the half moon drawbar connects to the final drive drop boxes, right? it can be installed pointed to the rear and used as a drawbar with two braces up to the bottom seat mount, or it can be turned around and pointed under the transmission and then used as an anchor for center mounted equipment, such as a blade, cultivator, etc. Dont think i have ever seen lawn tires on a B that were factory original. Probably installed aftermarket in the last 60 years. $600 might not be too bad considereing you get the blade and plow. I would chekc the motor close. If it is just a carburetor or magnito rebuild you got a deal. If it needs $500 worth of motor rebuild might want to think twice. -------Realy depends on what you think its worth. Personally i might pay that (but i cant pass up a B) if i thought i could get the motor going. Remember tires are $400 for a rear set by the time you get them mounted, and maybe tubes, if you are planning on changin them.

I've pretty much made up my mind to buy. Even if, it needs a major overhaul; it'll still be cheaper than a N, and a heck of a lot cheaper than a Kubota. PLUS - it'll be a lot more fun!

if I buy the little monster, I'll dig out the digital camera. It's around here somewhere, and I'll figure out how to post a picture; to give you a idea on how to go about it.
