Is this a fair price for a 1650?

I messed with this thing this morning. In looking at this one versus the one I allready have that my grandpa bought new in 1978, I'll be using this one for parts. As rough as mine is this one is rougher and incomplete but I should be able to make one nice tractor from the two. The splines on the hydro pump are stripped, and the ignition switch must be bad (it will only start after you stop cranking and let off the key) but it does run very well. I'm guessing this engine is a reman of some kind. The one on my other 1650 is painted black and I know it's never been replaced. It also has asset tags from the city of Hartsville TN all over, I suspect they put an engine in it at some point.

. The splines on the hydro pump are stripped,

 

 

Is that why the previous owner said the pump was bad? He didn't realize it was stripped

and not turning?

Can you rig something up, to test run the hydro?

I think those shafts show up on ebay, for not to crazy of a price, every now and then.

I'm fairly sure that's why he said it was bad. The guy didn't seem too mechanically inclined. I could drill a hole through the shaft coupler and the stub shaft coming from the pump and put a bolt through it or a spring pin. I probably will do that, it would be nice for it to move under its own power until I can get around to tearing into my other one.
