Me and my cousin kinda went in on this one together! Thought we would tinker with it. For the price we paid, it was worth it. From what we were told at first the engine had been overhauled, but shortly after it lost oil pressure, and was knocking! To make a long story short we had it running and was driving it around today!!!!! For whatever reason someone had dumped at least a gallon of gasoline in the crankcase(which was causing the no oil pressure), and #2 and #3 plug wires were crossed. After we got the points dressed, it started right up, and carries nearly 50 oil pressure. Engine makes no noise whatsoever. Runs like a top. The tractor has new tires all around. Sheet metal is perfect!!!
Its a 55 year model, and a deluxe model, it has 2 stage clutch!

Haven't done much to this project yet, other than teardown. I discovered what the true color is: Green and Grey! Found the green under 2 other layers of silver and grey(on the engine and drivetrain). Also the green is underneath parts that were unremoved earlier in its life! Being a 1956 does anyone know a paint code for both of these colors? Preferably Martin Senoir paints, which the local Napa uses!
