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?
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.
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.
