My parents have passed away & Dad has a 420 john deere lawn tractor that he was replacing the pto but never got it back together. This unit has set for approx 7 yrs now and we are going to have an auction. I'm wondering if it would be worth investing some money in the unit to get it running. I still have the mower deck also.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Everything usually sells for more when in good working condition. If it is not going to cost that that to at least get the mower deck and the engine running then i would fix it. You may be looking at a price difference of one thousand dollars. If in not running condition it may just go for a scrap price. As all auctions it depends on who is there and how many people are interested in it. If it was me i would getting it running condition.
Operate heavy equipment.
