    Looking at a B0

    Just looking so far. It needs quite a bit of work. It has bad clutch splines so it will need a new crank and drive disc. Anyone know what it might be worth.

    Looking at a B0

    What are you willing to pay? What’s he willing to sell it for? Somewhere between those numbers is what it’s worth.

    That tractor has a lot of potential, but it’s going to require a ton of to get it there. No matter what, if you fully restore it, unless it’s super rare, you’ll never recover the cash back you spent in restoring it. It’s a hobby. You have to look at it that way.

    The one thing you can kinda count on is, the popper market is slow. All the “kids” want the Next Generation tractors.

    Does it run and drive? Rubber in decent shape? If not, I wouldn’t shell out any more than $1k, tops. More likely a few hundred.

    It is a super cool tractor though.

    I can remember when you could get a antique rubber tired tractor for less then 1K but those days are gone sadly.Being that this is a orchard tractor and also a early one at that the value does go up.In the current condition of this tractor i would offer in the area of 1k to 2k and go from their.Keep in mind a fully restored one can normally sell for well over 5k

    Im not sure on value, I believe the BO and BR’s use a different crank than a regular B it might be hard to find one

    It does run and drive. The rubber looks OK, but you never know for sure. One front wheel has had the round spokes cut and a new rim welded on. The other painted front wheel we repair when my uncle owned the tractor.

    Have you considered shimming splines utilizing a good clutch disk driver or welding splines then utilizing a die grinder to shape them? I personally wouldn't want to spend over $1K due condition of the fenders & frt wheels

    Welding up the crank is a possibility, but I would rather find a used good one. I have heard you can get the front wheel rebuilt if you send yours in or you can buy a reproduction. I can repair the fenders so that's just time without much expense.

    I realize it's a lot of work and really no financial return on your investment, but here is an example of the pride and satisfaction you'll receive upon completion. It is well worth the blood, sweat and cash.

    Looks nice, Trebor. We haven't bought it yet, but will see if we can come to an agreement.

    I was lucky enough to befriend an older collector of John Deere tractors. He has been liquidating his collection of over 150 tractors the last three years. Every time I'd walk into his barns the BO and the BR caught my eye. I settled on a 1944 BO and a 1945 BR. They are my first two show quality tractors. I'm really looking forward to the first tractor show this summer. Should be a lot of fun.
