Last year I completed the total restoration of a Farmall MD. You are not kidding when you say it is expensive to rebuild one of those tractors. You can easily put $5000 into the engine and injector pump/injectors and that is if there isn't a cracked head. I ended up putting more than $8000 into the total rebuild (I must be nuts), but when I was done I would never part with it. That IH diesel engine is a mechanical marvel. It was a challenging, but fun project. Roger

I hear ya friend. I did the same thing with a 600D. Once you start you get deeper and deeper. Then you get to the point that you've got so much into the restoration that your commited to finish it. I to have over $7000 in to the D350 Diesel engine but she runs like a top now. I have two other of these gas start diesels, a 400D and a TD9. I love em and wouldn't part with any of them.

I own an MD that I bought at my FatherinLaws' sale. He loved the tractor so I kept it in the family. It runs fine but I did have to get the head fixed shortly after I brought it home. I find the gas/diesel configuation interesting but it's a very complex motor. I think it would have been a pain to work in the field since you have to switch to gas and run the bowl dry to shut it off according to the manual. I wish I would have talked to him more about it to hear his stories.

I would think $500 is the standard price
for a screwed up tractor. If you don't want
it, let me know, I would take it. If you do get it, I can sell you a good head, pistons/sleeves, ...

Sod may be a little too low, but you have to realize what that bad engine really is. A rebuilt engine is about $5000. You read that right.

Look at the picture. There is no exhaust stack...
Those valves are rusted and probably pitted. (three valves per cyl.) New sleeves, pistons, rings, bearings, cam and cam bearings. As long as it's apart, put in a new TA and clutch. How about the gearbox? I'll bet the auctioneers love you. Do you raise your own bid?
Keep your comments confined to the civil, please.
good luck

sticks and stones, pal.
What's wrong with offering a C note and bargaining from there? It's obvious it hasn't been moved for some time, and even an idiot like me knows how much those gas/diesels cost to refurbish. Sometimes people jump to conclusions.
I think this is one of those cases. You are forgiven. It's not like I was saying anything bad about Farmalls, you understand, I have one myself and love it. good luck

$100 good luck. That should be a fun one. It may cost some dough, but you would have a nice one! sod

It looks like it maybe a good project to tackle. If you get freed up and it turns out to be a real lemon, then you could get your money back in "parting her out". My 2 cents.
