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

Could you take off the valve spring then work the valve up and down in the guide? Maybe the valve stem is scored. I’ve freed a stuck valve stem by cleaning up the stem. Then check the lifter for clearance in the lifter bore to see if it’s sticking. ✌ Harry
