Yes thats some kind of lift. I think the linkage from the handle is missing though. Havent really checked it out yet. I do know the rear end is good on this one unlike the money pit Homelite.

Ok I had to go take a look at it and it does work, but thats about the only thing that does. It set in a barn with a leaking roof for twenty years and everything is rusted solid. The steering is even rusted solid.

Take your time and loosen everything up.....The last Ford I got, the carb throttle plate was seized solid....It took a week of soaking and boiling it in hot water and vinegar, but it loosened up.....Good luck with it
