Well I got it ! It was almost a 400 mile round trip but I now own it. I am not yet sure how good of a deal I made on it. I just quickly paid the man and threw it on the trailer and took off. But I guess it dosen't matter cause I just wanted it. He said it ran good a "few years ago" when he put it in the barn. He did say as far as he knows the trans is fine. Lets hope he wasn't blowing smoke on that one. I guess you could say I had a bit of luck with me on the way home. I noticed the seat was flopping around like crazy when my little trailer went over bumps etc so I stopped to check it out and throw a bungee cord on it. I found my seat bottom just laying in the trailer and I surely would have lost it if I had left it there. I also remember thinking I guess I will have to make a grill for it too. I didn't remember if it was there or not when I loaded it. It was cold and windy and I was in a hurry. If you look close in the pic you can see the grill laying under the front of the tractor. Well it rode all the way home like that.. Now I will need a battery and some tubes for the tires and some tinkering time to see just what I bought. It was pretty interesting talking to the fellow I bought it from. He was a Bush Dealer at one time and knows a bit about there history. He was telling me about a Bush Hog tractor a guy owns that is still in its original shipping crate that has never been opened. Now that would be a find. Ok so when I get time to work with it a bit I well let you all know how it goes.
