Bought this on eBay; not sorry. It needed a lot of work and still needs some but the seller was upfront about it's problems. I've rebuilt 8 of the 12 hydraulic cylinders. I've had to collect a bunch of new tools, learned a lot, and have gotten a lot of help from "this forum"; thanks guys.
The main things remaining are 1) brakes 2) more painting, 3) a tire, and 4) electrical. The starter works and the manifold heater now works but the rest of the electrical is still on the list. Being a recently retired NASA engineer, I'm at home with anything electrical or electronic. I've read that the brakes are likely full of tranny fluid. It might be spring before I did into that.
