Yes I have both a trickle charger and a large starting charger. Sometimes it starts sometimes it doesn't.

The tractor doesn't look to be in bad shape from the pictures. It is stored in good conditions and no sign of leaks under it. If tires are good, it runs well once started without overheating or excessive oil use and pto, hydraulic system and brakes work, you have a lot to start with. You may need some maintenance such as a good tune up carb cleaning or adjusting, a new battery or something else considered normal maintenance. Then it is a matter of putting some money into the tractor or putting the money into something else. Newer tractors have more features than the older ones which may make a newer one more useful. If you are satisfied with the job this tractor does for you or want something newer is a call you have to make. Unfortunately the older Fords have lost quite a bit of resale value in most parts of the country over the last few years, which should be considered both in a decision to sell, and any decision to spend a lot on repair.

Lot of good advice rendered here Caroline. I can't ad to it but will make an observation.
Those front wheels sure don't look parallel to me, or is it an optical allusion?

Ok went out to start the tractor. I'm waiting now for the sediment bowl gasket to wet because it was leaking quite a bit. I've dealt with that several times before. New this time is leaking from bottom of carb drain plug. Starter engaging and good turn over sound, no catch to.start though. I suppose I should start it every week or two all year.
