TRACTOR WAS WORKING WELL UNTIL THE CONNECTING ROD IN ENGINE BROKE.
TRACTOR WAS BOUGHT IN 1978 FOR OVER $2800; ONE OWNER, WELL MAINTAINED, ALWAYS GARAGED, NO RUST
I emailed about it last night and he called me this morning. He had a lot of calls but I was the least hassle for him(no B.S., pay in cash, and immediate pick up). We had a nice 2 hour conversation and I came home with it and some extra 12" tires that I bought. Now I have to clean it and pull the engine.
Atleast it didn't throw the rod. The crank may be saveable.
It has what looks to me like homemade rear wheel weights that are lead that was cast into a 10" castiron fry pan. What an ingenius idea. Good Luck, Rick
