Welcome to the tractorforum Dan! :friends:

Looks like quite a bit of restoration work you have there. Where there's a will, there's a way.:thumbsup:

Welcome from me as well, and so far I put your poll at 100% in the NO Column :

You said "it needs the engine rebuilt and every thing it needs four new wheels and tires and new sheetmetal'

That leaves little to start with, if the sheet metal was decent I might say possibly. Except the term "Every thing" tends to tell me it's time to think in the $'s per pound category!!

Good luck!

well not every thing i am going to reuse the sheet metal but it is rusted bad and bent but not fixable.

the engine is locked up and it needs a new radiator and stuff like that does anyone know where i can fiind any of these parts at??

around here a Farmall cost around $2000 dollars so i figured i could fix this one for about the same.

i am going to leave the one spare car tire and wheel on it and put another one with it till i can get money to buy some new ones.

and i found the back tires and wheels new for less than $600 is that a bad price does anyone know where i could find them cheaper????

Welcome Dan:friends: Anything is possible if you have the time and the money.:D I would give it a shot and see just stay within a budget and try not to get everything all at once unless you have the money. I hate to see old iron get junked if theres a chance to save it.

Welcome to Tractor Forum Dan! :friends: :cheers: Unless this is a labor of love; the cost will far exceed finding a similar machine in working order of some sorts. It will indeed make a heck of a project tractor but expect a tremendous amount of work on your part.

welcome dan
$600 is not bad for 2 tractor tires the engine would be i'd start. usually only one cylynder is locked up if its not to bad it can be unseized cleaned up and used or in the worst case you may only have to buy one sleeve and piston. good luck with it and keep us posted on your progress

It sounds like the only thing you are keeping is the space it takes up:D As for getting parts, contact "Partsman" on this forum, post a "wanted" ad in the classifieds here, search ebay, and the other tractor forums. You can throw a lot of money at this and still have a none running machine, or you can carefully plan your spending and do a lot of the assemble and disassembly yourself, taking care of only what needs to be done to get it to trun and get the job surprisingly enough.
