http://pittsburgh.cr...3482672184.html Do you guys think its worth the 100$ to get this and restore it? I know NOTHING about these and wanted to know if it was a good deal to get or pass? Let me know what yall think. Im looking for a spring project but as long as i can get it running id be happy. Thanks!

That's tough It looks like it may be missing a lot of things including the engine. I have a 430 that I just haven't picked up yet. But I have searched for parts and though they do come up there not that common.

In it's current state (IMO) I think it would be better as a parts tractor.

You could always take a look at it if it was close, But I don't think I would pay $100

Seems some of the gravelys in the area are in that state wether they run or not. Its mainly the transmissions that are either missing or broken. There all 100$ but it seems the trannies dont hold very well?

I would stay away from it unless you needed trans parts.

That is a VERY rough machine. Tracking down the correct engine will be difficult at best. I'd say that is better as a parts machine to help with one you already have rather than planning on getting it running.

Thanks guys. Might just let it go havent heard back from the guy yet. And al thats a great price! Even if it would need a tune up it would be alot easier than putting an engine into one of those.
