The nice thing about old tractors is their simplicity! Mag, points, cables, plugs. That's it for the total electronics!
Wet type air cleaner, and a simple carb, and the fuel is all done.
Very easy to get em running again.
Is the engine stuck?

that is the nice part

The exhaust on this tractor was covered the whole time it sat and the engine is free.This winter I am going to get it going,so I will know it I went to fix it or sell it.

I gotta move closer to you so I can walk in the same woods. If that thing is loose, it should start pretty easy. Looks like an excellent restoration candidate or a good fixer-upper for around the place.

Slipshod, that was a great find!! The tin even looks half decent!!! What year is it. To guess from the pic I'd say about a '45?

:nerd: Not bad for a guess, huh! I figured that since it had the short filter it had to be later than '42, only made about 3-5 in '43, '44s had a steel shift knob, so guessed at '45.:smiles:

IH 500

My IH 500 is a deisel wide track,with a 6 way blade,cab and shuttle shift.It also had a PTO and three point hitch.Only repair that it needed when I bought it ,the guide pins in the gauge bar mounting blocks were wore out,allowing the track rails to walk.Used some class 8 bolts cut them down and they fit perfectly.It is another one that could use some paint,but still likes to work.
