I picked this 1050 up over the weekend. It is missing most of the wiring and some other small parts but the rest is still a solid tractor. This will be the sixth 1050 I have bought. For 30 dollars I couldn't pass it up. I am going to use this one of parts for my good 1050 and the 1050 I am restoring. I also like the modification a previous owner made to help grease the steering column. The PO used a grease hose to move the fitting to between the dash and seat. I plan on taking it off to use on one of my tractors.

For $30 you certainly can't go wrong.  That relocations of the zerk fitting was a cleaver idea.

All I'll say is for $30 you aren't out by much.  I'd be willing to buy tractors sight unseen for that kind of money.
