I have seen this on CL for a while - tempted to make lowball offer - I guess the 'running' replacement engine is going to be a risk as it might not run! Would be a project to keep me busy during the winter!

Lee;
Now, yer taking 'Tractor'.....a whole lot more than the 'Jube' you were looking at last summer!!!
I agree with Bob G.,......make an offer on that one!!!! Looks are decieving...a little rough, but with an extra block, to work with....you could just have a 5-6000 dollar tractor, when you finish up!!!

I had a chance to do an M/S carb for a local here, and he had a 2000 ford!!! Man, what a power-house that was.!!!!!! Big industrial back-hoe, and a hugh front bucket, on it!! I ran the back-hoe, for awhile after installing the carb......Half throttle, and the engine didn't even grunt.!!!!!!!! Dug a 6' hole in about 20 min's with it.

Take the chance.........GO FOR IT!!!.......JMHO!!!

Make a offer, a winter project is a must if ya got time on your hands and it beats the tube all winter as life is short. Just do it. Transportation is the main cost on this deal. I would guess its something he wants out of his hair.

I'd make an offer

swap the good motor in and then
leisurely fix the 'bad motor'

The power steering is always a nice option.
I can't tell if the tires are checked, but the tread looks decent.
If it were close I'd go look it over and see what he'll take!

I'd make an offer, the power steering alone is worth about $600 or so.

Yeah, I would buy that tractor too. Even at full price.
Once you have power steering you will never go back.
Only drawback I can see is it only has the 4 sp tranny.
Notice the extra heavy front axle. The rear axle on those industrial models is extra stout too.
