What that means is it hasn't moved since the engine blew up.

That "Ran when last parked" virus seems to very contagious and infects almost half the tractors for sale here a bouts. The cure sometimes involves liberal amounts of money, time and bad language.

Heavy on the language.

Over the weekend, I heard a seller tell a possible buyer "It ran the last time I used it", and the possible buyer laughed and said "When was that"?  I said (loud enough that they heard me) 1942!

You need to point out the positive: corrosive chemicals will be removed prior to pickup to enhance safety during transport.

Five minutes with wrenches and new spark plug . Tiny sample of oil from trans /diff and engine . See if engine turns freely and axle . Hook spark plug to wire to test spark at TDC using your own little batt for ignition if needed. Might be able to tell difference between pure scrap and possible runable unit .

Thinking about it, St.Pete is big but has small homes and property, so this was hardly used since the yards are so small, so it must be like new!
