I bought a 1952? planet jr bp1 in great original shape,with a cultivator and brand new goodyear tires. How much is it worth running an driving. Also why is it so fast?!? you have to jog with it when your disking! It has so much gear reduction you would think it would hardly move. Thanks.

Sounds like your engine pulley has been changed to a larger diameter.  It should only go a comfortable walking speed. 

If you could post a picture we could maybe see whats going on and get you headed in the right direction..

Something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, and still its value may lie simply in that persons connection with it, so it may be worth only what you payed for it.
