Hello, I'm new and this is my first question.

A friend has this and he is giving it to me for free to free up his yard where it has sat still for 5 years since the engine blew. It doesnt look real bad, it looks to be original and complete and not bent up frame wise or anything. I know for like a couple of thousand I can get one of these that run and look better and it's not like this is a real old tractor classic, but man, it looks cool.
My approach is to look it over real good, note broken things or missing things, see if I can get the engine to turn over by hand(has a cylinder head loosened up) go from there. In a perfect world I am hoping for a light rebuild on the engine, some paint and all good.

Or maybe this is a parts machine and not worth the effort.that is why I am here. Seeing these pictures, would any of you bother with this tractor in this condition? or should I part it out.. The price is free so I won't be out nothing.

thanks all. Tire Wheel Vehicle Tractor Automotive tire

That is an awesome starting point. Color me jealous!
Looks like it was owned by a DIY wrenching enthusiast at some point. You don't find Cometic stickers just all over the place, even among 'car guys'. And as a car guy putting 'the right tires' on something seems SUPER important to me even if i barely use the machine and the rubber money just ends up sitting there rotting. So who knows if it really did any work after the R1s went on. 😂
