I gave $125 for the tractor on ebay. I thought I would help the guy out and start the bidding for him then no one else bid so here it is in its rough state. I found a transaxle and a few other parts and have stripped it all the way down to the frame and started the journey.100_1937.JPG 100_1936.JPG 100_1935.JPG 100_1934.JPG 100_1934.JPG 100_1932.JPG 100_1931.JPG 100_1930.JPG 100_1929.JPG 100_1928.JPG

That was a great buy for parts alone!  But there's a good tractor to be had for sure.  So the hydro is bad...or the differential?

The differential had one of the 3 point dog ears busted off and he didn't have the piece

That's a lot of tractor for your money! A frame up restoration is a lot of work but you will end up with a tractor that would cost 10K to replace with a new one!
