Got this oldie a few weeks ago. It has been converted to 12 volt. Starts instantly and runs quite well after a bit of TLC. Replaced all of the wiring. Fairly even compression on all cylinders. I wanted to get something with a front end loader. Could've used it this past winter when I started running out of places to pile snow. I plan on fixing it up a bit, but nothing elaborate. Got new lights and gauges but not installed yet. Needs new brakes but need to take the front end loader off to get at them.
