Last July, I was given a 1936 Farmall F20 for my 18th birthday. Unfortunately, the tractor in its current state does not run, but still turns over by hand.
I know the engine was 'hopped up' a few owners back, and ran as a pulling tractor, but I don't know to what extent. Overall, the tractor is in amazing shape. It simply needs to get running, and both rear tires are in need of replacement. Other than that, the paint is amazing, just needing a good bath.
My question is, is it worth getting this tractor back running? I'm asking cost-wise. I'm not afraid to spend time to get it right. The gentleman who gave me the tractor said when it ran, he was never able to get it started by hand cranking, because of the built engine, it always had to be pull started.
Thanks in advance for the help, I do look forward to hearing advice from those of you who have done this a time or two before.
