Hello. Not sure if this is the right section for this kind of thing but here we go. First of all I am new here so hello to everyone, my name is Frank.
I am looking to buy a Farmall as a project tractor. I live in Massachusetts and my excuse to get a tractor is plowing my driveway.
Im sure most people on here understand the economy and buying a tractor is far from the top of the list. So I am looking for one that needs work, which is no issue for me I am used to working on old equipment, and trucks. (I own an old jeep, and a 67 IH Scout)
Anyways I found and called on one fairly local to me. The guy was able to tell me that he honestly doesnt know much about it. It is a farmall A, not sure of year. Does not currently run but he has not looked into why at all. Hood is missing, but grill is intact and in good conition. Brakes are seized? He does not know if it is the brake lever it self or something to do with the actuall brakes. Also clutch condition is unknown. The good part is it has fairly nice tires and a nice plow set up on it. He told me he originally bought it to put the plow on his A and sell the tractor but never got around to it.
When I go look at it, what should I look for? Any real specific deal maker or breakers?
