I'd be really interested in hearing anyoneâ€™s experiences of purchasing old tractors that weren't found "down the road" for sale. (which is how I found my 51 Cub). I've been watching the ads for a particular Farmall, but living in New Jersey, tractors are considerably more difficult to find. The times I have seen the model Iâ€™m interested in, itâ€™s usually 1000 miles away. Not having a trailer is a problem. Has anyone relied on an acquaintance to inspect a tractor for them? What about arranging transport? Iâ€™d appreciate any experiences.
P.S. Iâ€™m looking for a 53-54 wide front Super H.

Paul, If you know someone on this or any other forum who is close to the tractor you will usually find someone is willing to take a short trip to check one over for you. A dis-interested third party is a far more impartial judge of the condition than a very interested buyer. Many times you can also arrange transportation this way. Sometimes it may be in short hops and it may take some time, but it works. I know that many of the guys on the ATIS mail lists do this on a regular basis.
Bigdog If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
