I think he should have said that it did run til it stopped for some reason is why he parked it

 

It's a downright shame how people outright lie through their teeth.  I would have given $75 for it regardless, but to lie like that is pretty sorry.

Sorry to hear you have a bad rod. What do those rods run? Good possibility that you might be able to just change the rod if the crank is good and not undersized.

Well I put the head back on and carried the motor back to the tractor hooked up the starter and wire harness plug set the battery back in it cranked it over and this thing has a ton of spark So maybe with a new rod it would run like a champ again Oh and the intake valve is stuck
