I love tiller steering.  Looks like new tires on the back.  I don't think the price is too bad.

The engine might be original, or at least the correct one anyway.  It should have a Wisconsin AKN on that one, I believe, and that one looks like it may fit the bill.  It's missing the air breather though.  The tractor is also missing the cast iron bell housing that covers the crank and pulley on the engine.  That's a bit of a problem.  I'm trying to remember back to the one I had, but I don't think it would stay engaged and drive without that bell housing.  Without that, you wouldn't have that set of linkages to keep the drive system engaged.  You'd probably have to always be pushing down on your toes to keep the tension on the pulley to keep it engaged.  It wouldn't snap into place to keep it in gear and make driving it comfortable like it should be.  Also, unless I'm just missing it, it doesn't seem to have the reverse wheel on that pulley.  Maybe it's not the original engine, which would explain the wrong pulley, no reverse disc and no bell housing?  I don't know, and maybe I'm just missing it as I'm looking.  Here are pictures of my old one to show the bell housing because I don't know how much sense I'm making with describing it.  I wish I would have kept that one ....
