Over the summer I picked this basket case 1050 for the weights it had. At the time I wasn't sure if I was going to use it for parts or fix it. I decided to fix it and spent some time today putting it together. I had to swap some parts for better ones I had on a parts tractor and after a lot of  work it was beginning to look like a tractor again. It fired after I fixed a few loose connections and replaced the condenser. The PO took the needle get thing out of the carb for some reason so gas was pouring out of the back of the carb. Tomorrow I fix that and put a hood on it.

I got the rest of the tractor put together today and was able to drive it around some too. The clutch needed adjusted and was also stuck but it freed up with a little driving. Overall it runs good and should be a good work tractor.

 

Here is the finished product.
