Looking good Shane. Did the carburetor have 2 thinner nuts with "star" type washers on them? I've pulled 2 original tractors with those and believe that is what IH originally used on them. Told me that Most likely mine had never been removed from the tractor.

Edit: Saw a later post and changed comment.

I do too Chase but worse case scenario I can get a major engine kit for $400.00 If I have to rebuild the engine I'll still be alright on this one.

That tractor would have fired up without doing all of that but I guess it doesn't hurt just in case it would have needed it afterwards. LOOKING GOOD SO FAR!

I bet it would have ran too, the gas in it still smells good to be in there that long but I'm gonna drain it and put it in the John Deere A, I know it'll burn it.

Chase, yes it did have two thin star shaped washers on the carb bolts. I didn't even think about it. I put it back on yesterday and reused them.

There you go! Just an observation of mine and now it's pretty plausible since my two and yours has them. I'll keep looking in mine as I work on others. One of those tractors also had the jute padding behind the fender still fully intact and in good shape. That there should tell you how the tractor was kept!!

Cleaned the carb, changed the oil, filed the points. That's the same gas that was in it for over 10 years, I didn’t feel like draining it. Now to get a battery that will fit in the battery box and put the one on the floor board back in the John Deere A.

:headbang I should have layed down a big bet! :lol: Way to go Shane. Very nice tractor.

I bet the lights will work too since that fuse holder still looks to be intact and in good shape. Being around the 140's the fault point on the light circuit is usually either the fuse holder or the "hot" wire at the light switch (that terminal will rust and break off).

I didn't try the lights, some of the insulation is off the wires. I ordered a complete wiring harness from brillman that should be here in a few days. I want it to be right :D
