    If you intend on restoring it, evaluation is not necessary since every part will be disassembled and brought to the nearest of factory delivery condition. You bought it , it's yours. Now if you want to repair the tractor to reliable working condition that is where evaluation is executed. I first repair the obvious to bring to a condition of basic running then continue in a sequence of importance. I don't do everything at once because I want to use it ASAP.

    ive restored a couple tractors, did a repaint and some mechanical work on my 90s weedeater ( craftsman) , went totally thru my 86 gt 2 craftsman, tore it totally apart and repainted everything and totally redid my 90s mtd taskforce, that was rough cause the frame needed replacing.
    i had a couple older tractors with cigarette lighters, i was like whoa thats cool.👍

    you have the pto cover when you have it off why not get it recasted out of aluminum in case you ever need one or want to sell one .a lot of tech schools and even high schools offer corses in sand casting you can get them to do it at a low price . like your vids

    welcome. 1968 and later Ford's had blue hoods. I like the 1965 to 67 Ford's myself.

    your tractor is a 1967. 2 spoke steering wheel, no hole in the hood for gas tank is a dead give away
