Online auction this week in tupelo MS, only 190 miles away. We bid on 5 tractors (3 B , 1 A and a ford N) won 1 B. Paid $270. including buyers fees. All the others sold for similar prices. Drove up Tuesday and picked up our winnings! Poor old B is rough. Motor stuck, manifold rotted, carb missing, block cracked ( in water jacket). Has a crazy 3 point hitch rigged on. The exhaust lift part is being used for hydraulic fluid...... Fairly sure all that's coming off. Planning to get this running again. We have bought worse!

Good luck with it. Most all are able to be resurrected. Just depends on how much one wants to put into them.

A steady drip of water will eventually wear a hole in the rock, don’t give up!

I bought a AC D14 in south west Mississsippi that was a hurricane Katrina victim, it’s now in NY looking and running like new….
