I am looking at picking up a 60 from a local. He said he would hold it for me for 2 weeks while I researched it.

Price is $700 firm, is this a fair price? Yes it runs, he thinks it smoked a little last he saw it run.

Where can I get parts? Can I get parts? Do I need to go to a salvage yard only for parts? It looks as tho it needs rear rims (some funky angle iron welded on as wheel center may have rusted), are they rare?

What other useful info should I learn about with these tractors? Thankyou for your input.

Missing some keys components, side shields are the big one, grille too.....700???? if it ran like a dream maybe....does have the power lift though. front tires mixed how do the rears look? I might offer a little lower to start, repop side shields are available but costly

Rear rims as I said above need to be replaced, hopefully tires wont fall apart when I unseat them (seen it happen in tire shop where I used to work). I have a body man here that is dirt cheap (repaired wifes minivan rear quarter for $80), so he wont be too bad if I show up and say to replace the rear panels. Just need some better pictures. The ones online at parts suppliers are poor.

Price is firm, the owner wont budge, yet he has a ramp truck and will deliver for free.

I would also like to ask if people can show pictures of how the choke is supposed to be hooked up? No I dont think much of the current use of rope. Also what does it use for a air filter?

Also please post pics of your 60 so I can see what I need to think about for future reference. Thankyou

well based on what you put in and from the limited view i have of the tractor $700 for a running tractor isn't so bad, especially in that condition. for the parts question its yes and no. i know korves oliver has remanufactured parts and side shields but that can get pricey. may need to find some salvage yard parts but not sure. i don't think tire size is rare since lots of tractors have small tires like that. the real question is how much work do you want to put in it. are you doing full restoration or get it running and look decent around the yard. full restore will get up in price, if you count rims, tires, overall kit, parts, etc. if you just do the minimal to just have it run it won't be so bad. overall cheap price on a running tractor go for it.
