Tom;

Sounds like a pretty complete tractor. Not being stuck means it can probably be made to run with minimum work, usually carburetor and magneto cleaning and making sure the valves are not stuck. I figure a tractor than can be driven on the trailer is worth $200.00 more than one pushed on. If you can get the tractor running it will be well worth your time. The present condition I would think it is a $900.00 to $1000.00 tractor if the sheet metal and fenders are good... Gene

thanks for the interest guys. located north central Pa. Hasn't run in probably close to 20 years. I've had it now 11 years. Was my dad's. he only used it to blow silage since it had belt pulley. I haven't tried to start although i have turned it over with the crank. Tire size 11-26. Dual fuel,only missing linkage to shutters on radiator. needs water pump. manifold seems ok. no PTO. Still has original headlights.other questions, just ask. thanks again.
Tom

Like the above responses state. What's its condition? Also getting very important, Wheres it located? Fuel or gas costs have now become almost as important as the orginal price. I know I just recently picked up a 41 D. Probably could have bought a restored one for what it cost to get it home. Well over $1200 just for gas alone.

Hard to place a value on something without knowing more about the condition. May be as low as $300.00 if stuck and needing tires to $1100.00 if running and on good tires. Manifold alright? They are getting more rare. 26 inch tires are among the highest price and hard to find used in good shape. Location is also very important.
Answer some of these questions and we may be able to give a better estimate on the value... Gene

Walt, I paid $600.00 for mine. Barely running and needed all tires. Got one rear tire with it that was good. Replaced the oil pan, manifold, grille, and carburetor. Finally found the second 13.6X26 rear tire last month, so now have right size tires on it now. with paint and parts, I probably have around $1800.00 invested in it plus my labor. Picture of it is in the photo archives here. Took it out and drove it around in the snow yesterday. Was a nice drive back through the woods... Gene

Walt

My neighbor has one in the weeds going to waste but won't sell it because it was her fathers sure would like to get it but it needs lots of work.

Today's Featured Article - Welding Basics - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the most useful skills that an owner of older equipment can have is the knowledge and ability to weld. It seems like the older equipment can do a job, albeit slowly compared to newer stuff, but it tends to break more often. Many of the breakdowns are related to the implements that are being used: the disc, wagon or bushog are among them. Knowing how to fix stress cracks, reinforce weak joints by welding on steel support plates, or cutting and shaping parts and adapters out of raw stee ... [Read Article]
