Well I bought it and got it home! It needs a little TLC though. The Ross Steering box needs rebuilt, i think third gear is missing some teeth because it pops out of third gear, some headlights, and a seat. It runs great with no smoke and does drive well in all other gears! The original tires are in great shape and the mower deck seems to work well. The hydraulic pump may need some attention too because as soon as I shut the tractor off, it drops down. I only paid $250 for it and I think it was worth it because i think everything on it is fixable at this point! Oh yeah and I also brought home what was left of a 1045 lol! I am very happy with it so far!

That 1045 has the original front tires. They are worth their weight in gold.

Found the source of the hydraulic leak and it appears to just be a hose. I like that better than a leaky cylinder.
