Time to get back working on this thing and finish it.

It takes up too much room.

Something seems different or a little wrong. I got it, it's missing the seat!

Bet that's interesting to drive with the little tires and the seat post.

Looking good Doug, looking good.

More progress, seat, grill, rear wheels, tires, and weights mounted. Tires are old and cracked so I put new tubes in all 4 of them.

Now working on the cultivators, had a hard time trying to figure out how they are suppose to go, but according to the manuals I found online, I think I got it right. ???

Still need to mount the rear cultivators and paint them.

One problem that has showed up is that it now blue smokes when running all the time, didn't do this before. ???

Noticed this after I changed the engine oil and filled the air cleaner cup with oil to the right level.

I used 10W30 motor oil.

Any ideas why it smokes now and not before?

it might have been used with nothing but straight weight oil & not liking the multi-weight!

Straight weight NON DETERGENT was my first guess.  Multi weight detergent oil might have broken loose years of gunk that was helping to take up clearances that are at their limits.  

 

This is just a guess though.

I agree that you need to go back to ND30 oil if you can find it up there. Since you already put it in there, I'm wondering if running it for an hour or two, then changing? Mixed emotions.
Another thing is to try cleaning out the air cleaner screen and go with a lighter oil in the air cleaner. Also, try adjusting mixture a little. The extra drag on the airflow could be choking it a little.

Multi weight detergent oil might have broken loose years of gunk that was helping to take up clearances that are at their limits.  
 

:ditto: And Not just rings, valve guides worn and the old sludge keeping them sealed possibly?

Non detergent, 30 weight oil is available and I have some.

This engine has an oil filter, I always thought that engines that have filters use detergent oil, and engines that don't have filters use non detergent oil.

The detergent keeps the dirt suspended in the oil so the filter can remove it. ???

Looks good! Did you get the smoking figured out?

Details on your Ford project?

No noticable shift levers so it must be a Select-O-Speed?  A transmission that I have never heard good things about.  Never used one though to know.

The Cub still smokes but not as much as before, I put 15w40 motor oil in it and it is used every 2 or 3 days now so maybe the thicker oil or just that it's being used regular ??? has reduced the smoking, just a trace now.

 

The Ford is a 1962 to 64, ??? , it has the 134 engine, 5 speed trans, power steering, heavy duty front axle???, and does not run.

I put new point's, condenser, plugs and a new carb on it but it still won't run, has compression, gonna try cleaning out the fuel tank and get some good clean fresh gas going to the carb. It fires but not hard enough to run steady.

Last time it ran I'm told "5 or 10yrs ago, maybe more".

All my friend wants done to it is get it going but this tractor has all the good parts on it, one to restore.
