This Tractor has set for maybe a year in the same spot. I drive by it everyday, but today somebody was there so I stopped. It will be a couple of weeks before I buy it. The shop that owns it, doesn't that good of work, I just hope it's jacked to bad. As far as i can tell the only thing missing is the seat, the bolts are there, looks like it rusted off.

Good luck on the Massey. Maybe the seat is still around there somewhere.

I just noticed something, in the second pic, I cant see the points cover. It may be there, just don't see it.

If it doesn't have points, that probably means the engine has been changed at some point. It also means it has the CDI ignition system. Hopefully, you have spark, but if this is bad, it's not insurmountable by any stretch, just a little more work.

Still a good deal, but it may give you a negotiation point.

Took more pictures today.

Here is how the "Throttle" is hooked up, notice this is the Choke plate in the throttle hole, and the cable is the choke cable.

Wow, that is in as good of condition as it looks, isn't it? Does it have the points cover, or were my eyes deceiving me?

I think it was just made to work every time it broke, not too bad, at least it might run. I like the license plate, but it might do better on the outside of the fenders lol.

Still... worth every cent even if you buy a second one just for a complete running motor and what ever else it's missing. I would buy that missing the entire motor and no tires or wheels for $100.00 all day long.
