I agree that short term, they can be rebuilt, but eventually they won’t be.Your grandchildren are unlikely to be using it for anything other than novelty or nostalgia purposes. If they need a tractor to do actual work, they’ll be looking for a 2035 model.Cost me $3100 to do a complete rebuild on the engine in my ancient John Deere 2020 in 2018. Been using the heck out of it since. By the time it needs another rebuild I won't be around to worry about it.
Not much demand for Conastoga wagon parts.
Time marches on.
