Looked at this one a few months ago but thought asking price was too high.  Left offer and they decided to sell so went and picked it up yesterday.  This is a 1975 model with hydraulics and a 3-point. This one is pretty rough so it may turn out to be a parts tractor for the 1978 and 1970 models waiting to be fixed up.  Has good steering box and needed the 3-point for the 1970.  Got with a modified Wheelhorse blade and disc for $250 - so not too bad.  Now just need some time from the house remodel to start working on the tractors. Thanks for all of the good information I have gleaned from this site so far.

That disc alone is worth the $250.

 

Good score!

Even though I need another tractor like a " hole in the head " I would buy one like that just like you said for the parts , the disc is a bonus !

When I started looking for parts on Ebay like the Ross steering box and just the 3-point part that slides into the tractor I could easily spend $200.  This way I will have those items and then some other things I may need.  I does shift but a little grinding coming from left rear when rolled.  Back tires are not too bad just a little wear but no dry rot.  The engine turns over easily and may end up going in the 1970 that has a reman. in it that needs lots of attention. Should be fun when I get to them.

Pretty good, would fix that one also, not break it up, but that's me.  That rear blade says Horse on it, but guess that is added on. That long structure looks like what PK offered back then, real long like that.  Nice buy.
