Is the tractor a generator for an underground building?

With the lower prices tractors are now bringing you would be much further ahead to buy a running B compared to what it will take to bring back a tractor like that. Now if you have deep pockets and want a big project go for it. If you are not a mechanic now you will be by the time you are finished. Sometimes the therapy of bring one back is worth more than the money spent. Tom

The guy is saying now it'll be next week before he gets any brush cleared out from around the tractor. He did mention it is a tricycle front end and there is no battery box under the steel seat. He said he will pull the plugs and spray penetrating oil down in the cylinders and let it soak. I told him about the 50/50 mix of ATF and Acetone.

I edited the pic I have and made it brighter, I do see a steering wheel with a suicide knob on it. Also see a gas cap and crankcase ventilation filler pipe
