448 salvage

I was recently given a 448. Not sure of year. Orange model. No deck or accessories.
I have been bitten by the small tractor bug. I have a couple of other tractors that I take care of grass with. The intended use of the 448 is to help clear an area of woods, pulling a drag.
The unit has lived in a shed but since I'm close to the ocean, there's a lot of surface rust.
I removed the plugs. The engine turns free. Most controls seems to move. There no battery or ignition switch.
What should I do next to determine if this is worth putting any money into.
Thanks for your help.

Re: 448 salvage

Welcome aboard

I think the next steps are getting a compression reading on the engine and seeing if it will run once the engine is running, then can sort out next steps on any hydraulics issues.
