I overpaid a little, this 1000 is a little more rough than my other one. It has had some hacks over the years to keep on running, the hood is drilled all over, it has had a plastic fuel tank fitted, steering wheel is all bent.... BUT it has a good running TRA10D (not a TR10) that does not smoke at all and all gears shift well.
I picked up this tractor at a dealer who happen to have a bunch of scrap bolens equipment rotting out in the yard so I took the opportunity to do some parts hunting and ended up with a 900 seat and pan for 25$, a decent 800 hood for 10$ (to replace the one on the 1000), and a S7D engine (I only wanted the engine pulleys but it was easier to give me the engine for 25$).
Since I was there and I was later heading to Ontario to visit family I made a detour to pick up Ricks 1000 seat and deliver the lot to Stew( chev 29).
I have everything I need to build a good 1000 using these 2 tractors so I should be starting that project sometime next summer.
Here are a few pics of the finds
