Hello Dale, welcome, and thanks for the photos. The old RC looks like a fairly good challenge.
Good luck and have fun with it. Another photo every now and then to show us how it's coming along would be appreciated.

Hi all Thanks for the replies.
Bobby my little man is a keen helper mainly moving tools I need to work on it .
The tractor is in amazing mechanical condition as the previous owner stripped the engine and rebuild it but never put it back together
Thanks dale

When I purchased the tractor it was missing a bracket for holding the kerosene tank .
I found a wc bracket but when fitted lifted the tank up to high for the bonnet.
Then Mr John fielder from Wisconsin came to the rescue and had the correct bracket. (Thanks john)

You have a creative bride. I hope the cake was as tasty as it looked.
You're RC looks to be a hand start model.
RCs were bit underpowered using a G125 engine from a Model B on a WC frame and using the same implements as the WC with a G201 engine. Not surprising that they didn't sell well. Being short lived makes them a great collector tractor.

Iam getting close now to trying to start it just need to sort the fuel pipes then should be good to try.
Currently working on the front wheels as I didn't manage to buy the original set at the auction but had a spare set of allis b wheels and are in the middle of swapping the centres for rc ones located in the states by a friend .

Good to see the old RC back moving under its own power.
I agree it's in need if some new rubber. I don't think a patch will work on that one.
