Lets see if I can help you with the implement identification.

The cultivator tines that are mounted on it look correct but have different tool heads on them.

The tool  heads were changeable for tilling different types of crops.

The cultivator arms could be mounted to point forward or backward.

 

Here is what the manual shows.

The 3-gang disc look like they are the correct ones once you remove them from that frame.

 

This is how the manual shows them.

The plow looks like the right size but the shape of the main beam isn't right.

The drawing in the manual shows a "H" shape beam and the beam on the plow has flat sides.

Also the front mount for the colter disc doesn't look right and the mount to fasten it to the tool bar is way off ( from what I can tell from the drawing in the manual ).

hmmm....the plow looks close, but not quite. i see things that look the same, and others that are different :oh_shucks: guess i need to keep researching as it is not the same as Jerome's pic, or Ray's manual....

 i went out to get some magneto info, and to id the carb, when i noticed the tappet sidecover is missing :( . i unscrewed the oil drain plug, and only a trickle of water came out, but the oil represents gloppy goop. sooo, i got out the marvels mysterie oil in my squirt bottle, and gave the tappets, and springs a good soaking, then pulled the spark plug, and gave the valves and pistons a thorough soaking. hopefully by the time my gasket set and carb rebuild kit arrive, the mysterie oil will have worked it thing on all the internals i could get to. any suggestions on how i can flush the crankcase before  refill with oil and try to fire it?

Hank has copies of the FMC Bean Cutler manual for sale. That is where I got my copy from.
He also has "FMC" decals for the Bean Cutler.
