Just got back from looking it over. It took almost 45 minutes to get it started. The sediment bowl was cracked. owner didn't know it had a hand pump on the primary fuel pump. He was pulling the stop knob (thought it was the choke).Somebody had told him to loosen the 2 bolts that hold the injectors in to bleed it. He could only get the bolts loose on 1 injector so I suggested he loosen the nut on the fuel line. I think the real reason it wouldn't start was because he had the "choke" pulled out. I pushed it in when he wasn't looking and pointed out the pre-heater button and it started right up and ran real well no smoke of any kind. It had all the problems you guys mentioned and every joint on it was loose. Did I mention the hydraulics and steering didn't work. It was a nice ride down to the Catskill mountains and the coffee and donuts in Downsville were really good and the best part is we don't have to get it across the little bridge that won't hold it and drag it 2 hours home

Did not want to insist but I sure am glad you passed. Chances are you would have had a 4 thousand dollar boat anchor in short time. I am always afraid to chime in too hard against old purchases because this is an old tractor forum but sometimes it is just money wasted on something like that.

Dave, you must have gone right through my neck of the woods! Did you go down 28?

Was it the IH on Craigslist for $3399. The one where everything works?
