Good morning guys. I am looking for some advice on what to do with a project i am working on. I bought a real nice wr9 tractor with a stuck motor. I wanted it for the hand clutch and rice fenders for my project. When i pulled up to get the tractor i meet this old fella about 90
And find out he is the original owner of the tractor. After we get it loaded he hands me some old paper work he had on the tractor. It turns out to be the original owners manual with the original bill of sale from the dealership. I understand i cant save them all. This motor would cost a fortune To get running again. But it is unusual to have that kind of paperwork and purchase from original owner. My question is it ok to part out what i need or mortgage the farm to fix it? Thanks you. I look forward to your comments.

I have used warmed Marvel Ministry oil with great results. I also waited up to a week working the crank back n forth and adding a few oz. of warm oil in each cylinder each day.
Good Luck

i say fix it or keep as is if tractor is decent. things like that dont come around too often. i know i would not destroy it. you did not say for what u needed the hand clutch or fenders for, but they should stay with this tractor. and a WR9 is kinda a rarity.

If its a nice tractor and been sitting inside it shouldn't be that much trouble to get it running, soak it and fool with it for a while, you never know. I know you would have to clean fuel components, but that's not that bad. I bought one from Manitoba years ago and it was rough as rough gets, now its a pretty tractor. If you got it to run, that's all you need. It is special, your the second owner.

Don't give up o it yet, ATF transmission oil will do wonders,My son is working on a Mpls Moline he put some in some jugs, 3 days he hit it with a block of wood and a hammer, he couldn't believe it, but it had moved.
