I am trying to decide which direction to go and am looking for some advice. These two tractor are 1987's but each has its issues. This is a family deal and I will get my pick of the two and the other will likely be sold. The 316 has an 18hp Onan engine with 750 hours on it and is leaking oil. A Deere shop has quoted $700 to replace all seals and gaskets. Beyond that it runs well.
The Ingersoll has a 16hp Onan with 430 hours. It will not start currently but when I did run it a few years ago it was running rough and will certainly need some attention to get it back functioning.
Does anyone care to offer opinion as to which direction I should go?
