70's 2418 Economy (price)

It would be worth $800 for what it is... and someone obviously loved it once so that's a good thing. Question is how much do you like to paint? Painting just takes a good bit of time.

...I have no use for it other than the personal satisfaction of the restoration.

I just checked and see that the seller has not taken his add down yet. Give it a look as he has several good pictures of it. On Craigs list under Springfield Missouri...... Economy Tractor......then John Deere/Economy
I did go for my first drive. I see how a dual transmission model would be much better. In first gear this thing flys. I am not sure how a person could do a lot of garden stuff with it running so fast even in first gear. When the seller said that he mowed in first gear I thought that the thing had very little power or he sure mowed slow. Now I see why as it mover right out even in first.

That clutch does take some getting used to but they work well once you have a little practice. What tractor show you going to friday? Would that be Republic?

Like Jeff said, the clutches can't be adjusted. And the draw is very short on them. But, you will get the hang of it quickly.
You say it sounds bad when cranking, it could be the starter. PK#1 does that too, I know it is the starter. The starter is not weak or anything. And as long as it works I am not worried about it. If it does go, these starters are redily avalible.
