IDK, I have not seen it in person. K-Bid online auction. Pick it up on Sunday.

I can change the oil and fill it up with gas and still be into it for less than $100.

You did well. I think I see a chain riding a gear. That's more than a 100 right there.

Do these help clarify?

Personally, I would prefer that the push button was missing and the actual starter was there. :(

The serial number registers to a 1953 alright but the slanted spark plug says 1956-1966.  Head has been changed - maybe to get more UMPH out of her. 

Now the snow blower should throw a dog 10 more feet.   :poke:

You better keep the rotary plow.  Thats the most useful piece!!

Still have the starter clutch though. They're an easy sell, if you choose.

Seems a used starter goes for about a honeybee, new is $225 plus shipping. Looking at pics, it might have the starter strap in the box over the hood.

That dark spot under the muffler? That is a hole in the block. The rough cut mower, the rotary plow, and the snowblower will go on CL tonight.

 

I will tear the tractor apart and part it out. The rims are nice, most everything else is not. Hood is dinged, tore and has multiples hole drilled through it. The tank has a nice tag, but has braze splatter all over it from trying to fix the upper hood rest.

 

Win some, lose some.
