I am trying to get one of my B's going sooner then later and each tractor has its set back at the moment.

What can I use in place of a 10X36 tire? Its so old and such an old design tire I am surprised to be able to read the size

Will a DLTX67 work in place of a DLTX10?

Will a WICO X work in place of a WICO C?

What is used for the upper radiator pipe out of the radiator top?

What can I use for a replacement 39 muffler replacement because that muffler is hard to get apparently? I have a glasspack blank ordered up but I am having my doubts about it.

any advise for starting up a tractor this old and been sitting for such a long time? grandpa bought it in the 80's from a friend from an auction and it has never been running since before the purchase

cheapest muffler I could find for a 39-40 was $115

I also need the exhaust pipe for this too. I think fleetfarm has that for $28

i personally like to straight pipe a JD.. I have one on mine.

however.. stanley makes some cheap mufflers.. adn they are inexpensive too :) I believe there is a MF stanly muffler that will fit that large out pipe on a JD

as far as what to do on an oldy been setting?

I pull the plugs and fil the cyls with atf and thread plugs in loosly to keep dirt out.. let set a day.

take plugs out and bar it over by hand a bit.. then refill with atf.. and let set again.. etc. bar it over a lil each day for a couple days.. remembering to pul and repalce plugs each toime. after a couple days of theis.. if it bars over ok.. i'd change the oil and that darn hard to get to filter. if oil is dirty or watery.. buy a couple filters.. buy cheapest oil you can.. run her with cheap oil and atf dex 3 .. run 1 change as a flush

I filled the cylinders with pb blaster and motor oil and turn them over twice a week. It turns good now. I got the mag and carb off and rebuilding them.

How long can antifreeze sit before its bad? It smells terrible.

I got lots of cheap oil and atf and filters for $3 each.

Should attempt to get it going late next week once the upper hose is fixed.
