Hello everyone. I am new to this forum and I have a few questions. I am not a farmer, but I am an old Iron nut. My family has many tractors including a 1921 Heider, 1929 Rock Island, 1935 JD GP, a Twin City KTA, Farmall F 12, McCormick Deering T20 crawler, 1931 Rumley 6, 1941 AC C on steel etc. But overall my Grandfather, Dad and myself are Case Guys. I have a 1950 D, a 1956 "300", and a couple others. Grandpa has a 15-27? Cross motor, VAC, LA, L, C, and a "77" Case Combine.
My Question is this. I have bought a barn full of scrap iron that also includes a mostly complete 530 that looks like it has new pistons, sleeves and bearings. There is also a "400" gas wide front that is missing one cylinder head and has no rear tires. The rims are there. Is there a market for any parts on this tractor? I don"t want to scrap it, but it looks like it has been cannibalized for a while. It has really nice tin on it.
My second question is the lady I am buying this scrap iron also has a running "400" that has the Eagle Hitch and hydraulic remotes. The clamshell fenders are rusty, which the parts tractor has nice ones, and pretty worn out tires. What would this tractor be worth? It ran last year and has pretty sloppy steering.
Thank you for any help you can give. I am located in Salem, Oregon. Zane
