Both rear centers are cast on this one.I went over it scratching here and there with my pocket knife and produced nothing yellow, anywhere.
The paint is faded and was last done with a brush. I seriously doubt that anyone that would paint a tractor with a brush would prep for paint by stripping all the original paint from the tractor. I have to assume this one came red.
The brake is froze but that should be ok with a little gentle persuasion.
I cranked the engine yesterday and got nothing. Today I got a really strong response but it ran for only about 5 seconds. The fuel strainer has about a 1/4" of crud in it so a good cleaning of everything from the strainer to the carb will make things right.
To replace the front mismatched tires, ones a space saver spare, and to make a balance with the 8.3 rears I think a set of smaller 4.00x15 tri-rib tires will look better.

Six-volt. Based on the terminals, it looks like a deep-cycle battery.
