Picked up a 61 today.
Motor is free. The tractor has been turned over at some point. The radiator support on the left side is bent along with the hood. Inside the tank is a mess and the shifter is stuck. Three bad tires and both front rims are trashed. It has the tires that I believe came on it when it was new. I do not believe it has a lot of hours use. The guy I got it from got it from his Dad and it has been sitting out side for over ten years. It has about half of one of the Sunflower mowers on it, the other half has rusted away. It will be a chore to get it back running but I am up for it.

Mother was telling me she thought "this was the worst one she has ever seen" in the picture below.

Sadly I told her that I have brought home much worst. :shock:

I see possibilities, Good luck with it!
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
