Just traded for this ugly-duckling... I think it should turn out nice. I need to get a LOT of parts for it, but I think I can do it. I plan to turn this into a golf-cart/parade rig as I really need a tractor that is good on gas, easy to modify, and is very simple. It is missing basically everything but the wiring harness when it come to electronics, but it has very nice compression and turns over easily by hand. Looking forward to working on it.
Can anyone tell me the year? 4-digit is the only code I wrote down: 9679
BTW; It only cost me about $50 in the end. Figured the engine was worth that.
