Master might have a future after all. Took a bunch of pictures as it came apart. WOW!! Real IH bolts!! So far only two bolts have broken. One on the hood and one of the heat shield bolts on the engine. Must have belonged to a GM guy at one point,had a 10 mm nut and bolt on one of the battery ends. So after cutting off the belts (Yeah I know) and getting the PTO moving again the engine rotates!!!!!! Things are looking up! The Little Woman took off the choke linkage and the throttle linkage off and the pivot (Of all places!) had seized up. Now the carb moves. When we took the locked up starter/ generator off,stood it up on end,and then watched the water come out. So in the big picture there is hope.
