Just bought this B excited to get it home. It’s not perfect but it’s not to bad either I’m going to try the restoration myself I’ve never done one but I love the A’s and B’s I want to do it justice

I have a 1950 B in about the same shape, mine may be a touch more weathered.

Do you know if the engine is stuck? No exhaust stack makes it a tad harder to keep the rain out.

It sat for 3 yrs and the engine was stuck but a bottle of brake fluid in the cylinders And I put a breaker bar on the flywheel with a eight foot drive shaft on that I hung a suitcase weight on the driveshaft and just waited. Took less than a hour and the driveshaft fell to the ground the engine was free. Had it running yesterday it seems fine

Good to hear you got her running. Went to an auction once where several of the 170 tractors for sale were stuck. By sale time the guys that travelled from all over the country had most of them loose just by rocking them.
