    How can I tell if a prospective tractor is in good condition?

    I think it is helpful to you The following is a subset of what to look for:
    Good compression - Your local auto parts store has the specifications in their Parts / Tune-up book and will be more than happy to sell you a compression gauge. Don't forget the spark plug wrench when you go looking. Oil Leaks - Though a small leak (1 drip in a minute) may not seem like a big problem, splitting the tractor in half to replace a transmission shaft seal or main seal requires 12 amateur mechanic hours and a rolling hoist.
    No Blue Smoke - If the tractor is putting out blue smoke it may indicate some time consuming issues. If you can, on a bright day watch the top of the pipe with a dark background (trees or a dark building). This will highlight any smoke. Some smoke may just indicate a richness condition but if the smoke is blue it is oil burning. Smoke that emits from the crankcase breather may indicate an excess of pressure in the crankcase which could mean some big repairs. Putting a excessive load will allow you to see if the machine will smoke and simultaneously listen for serious knocks. A load can be applied by putting the tractor in a high gear, applying the brakes, easing out the clutch and allowing the governor to do the rest.
    Tires - "No tractor that is listed for sale has less than 50% of its tread left", the corollary is "No tractor you go to look at will have more than 20% left". Look for at least an inch on the rear, rear tires are expensive. One inch is just passable. Front tires are much cheaper and much easier to haul to the tire store.
    Hydraulics - Operate the hydraulics and listen for rattling and watch for jerky movements. While this may indicate simple problems, they may be beyond the capabilities of a backyard mechanic. Another thing to look for is if the hydraulics will lift a heavy implement and if they will hold it up in their hold position.
    Oil & Coolant - These are not supposed to share a common sump. Run the tractor for a long long long time, get it hot by running it under load if possible. This should open up any seams for both coolant and oil leakage. Check the oil via the dip stick and look for foaming; this may indicate minor leakage of coolant into crankcase. If the oil level comes up, the head or block is probably cracked seriously. There are tricks an unscrupulous dealer or owner can perform to sell a cracked motor such as gooping up the head gasket enough to keep a crack from showing for a long time. There should be some discrepancies in such cases with compression check levels. Please post in this if you have more doubts like this

      When you buy old tractor first check the tractor model, also check tractors engine parts that work good or not.
