wow needs a lot of work sounds like 1200 was too much to pay for it. what will all the repairs cost? how much would it be worth all fixed up?

I do know that would be a very good price to pay for a tractor like that here in the Uk, Don't know what it would make done, but from others done here 5000 may be.

tractor tires can be a pain in the ass to replace. the company i worked for in the 80's had a ford tractor from the late 50's, we had to drive a 2,000 gallon oil truck over the tire to break the bead free.
good find on the wheel weights new rims and tires are a lot easier to deal with.

The JCB bucket is good to break the beed, but the new tractors we do with wheel on, flat tyres as well, pull the tube out with wheel on, repair it put tube back in, refit tyre.

Bit like repairing the rear back bike tyre when you dont want to take the chain off

There is a good little story to the weights however, may get Bob to tell you about that one
