6 or 7 years ago I bought a 70 gas, it ran ok just used oil. Then the flywheel got loose, and I noticed cracks all around the hub of it. So I tore it down with plans to rebuild it. When I got it apart the crank was shot and so was alot of other things. That was as far as I got, 6 years ago. Now I kinda want to start on again. . .but someone stole all the tinwork and a few other things. So I am debating the cost of finding everything it needs vs just knocking it in the head. I really want to get it going again, I have a love for the 70. But wow its gonna take alot of coconuts if I do. What would you do?

You need to find another parts tractor and build 1 out of 2. The parts you need would be expensive to buy, but if you find another tractor with a good crank and hood you can do ok. The doaner wouldn't need things like a block or carburetor that you already have. Take your time and look around.

In most cases a good example of a model is the cheaper way to go and a whole lot more enjoyable than a fence row or one that you need sheetmetal and then a crank,flywheel,piston and rings,bearings and the list goes on and on,The 70 is not hard to find and I really believe you'll be cheaper to look a little but I sell parts so what do I know????
