The Ford sounds best. If he has a tractor, have him mount it so that you can raise it off of the ground. Turn the wheels and be sure that everything goes around. Especially check the seed knockers, the things inside the seed boxes that go click, click, click. They are available, but are more than $50 each. Also check the openers (shoes), also available, but very expensive. Plates are available on ebay or from a Ford-New Holland dealer. At that price, I wouldn't worry very much about the condition of the fertilizer applicator. If it works, fine, if not, you can spread fertilizer another way. The most important part of the planter is the seed section. Good luck.
