Herman, In the US, if a Cub is complete but not running, it is considered a parts tractor and they usually sell for between $250-$500 US. Unless you plan on buying another Cub and this one has usable parts, it may not have much value. Tires (rubber alone, without rims) can cost $500 +/-. You probably know what that cost is for South Africa. An engine rebuild over here will be around $1500-$2000 unless you do a lot of the work yourself.

I would only purchase the tractor if I needed it for parts for another Cub.

Considering the current scrap metal prices in the USA, probably a negative value considering the time and expense of hauling it to a scrap yard.

Depending on what you need for the magneto, you can probably upgrade to a battery/distributor type ignition for less cost that a magneto. If you decide to do that and shop for a used one, be certain you have ALL the parts. Distributor type ignition costs less to purchase and maintain.
