              Positive ground too, which is why it's not rusted into oblivion. Great tractor.

                    I've seen alot of engine re-starts. But I really seemed to like yours. Well done. Could be I like old Farm All Tractors. Once again well done.

                      Does it have a magneto, were as you wouldn't need to use a battery to run the engine?. And just use the crank handle to turn over the engine to start it.?

                    I have one older than this in my yard right now and it will crank and run easily. I have had it for 20 years or more. Never failed to start and run.

                          Good job! They were built to just plain run back then! None of the 'improvements' like sensors, and sensors to monitor those sensors, and back up sensors to fail in case the other sensors don't fail fast enough.

                            Someone please answer - is Marty a mechanic by trade? Or a diesal fitter? How does he know how to start all these old things? I am amazed by his skill set.

                              Self taught, I buy the workshop manual for every vehicle I own, it becomes second nature after a while, I don't claim to be an expert but I can usually work my way through most mechanical problems.

                                Wrong battery. You need a 6v for that tractor. Not a 12v.

                                  Usually yes, but this one has been converted to 12v

We had plenty that did get away with it, but a lot that didn't too...

                                                                                      A lot of the rings problems is that it sits there, some pistons up, some down, in either case the bores either side will often rust, and often the rings themselves will 'seize' to the bores, the sudden shock of a start can often literally break chunks off them... This is obviously not good if you want to get it running again afterwards, and means replacing often hard to get parts and a complete engine stripdown and reconditioning... A good long soak and gentle pressure with a cracker bar is less likely to break bits off them
