Most of the time the oil leak comes from the push rod for the points

Not looking that simple for me it looks to me looking from where the points locator pin sticks into the block

Well my fears were confirmed this afternoon pulled the points and there was a small hole at the end of the threaded hole looks like someone screwed something into far. This shouldn't be to bad to fix i'm using an oil safe epoxy jammed into the hole should be fine as the point's don't even use the threads in it. I am hoping this at least slows the leak down i can live with a drip not a stream.

So i have been running the tractor the last few days kind of nice now that it moves on it's own. Once i first got the motor in a was very disappointed as the motor smoked like a freight train but what can you do. I know have about 2.5 hours of run time on the motor and the smoking has calmed some once it's warm i am hoping with time maybe it will stop but who knows really i have a little marvel mystery oil in the oil hoping that helps.

 

The only real issue i am having is i can't seem to achieve the 2,000 PTO RPM i can only get about 1,700 i am hoping with a load maybe il see close to the 2,000 mark.

 

Here are some pictures as everyone loves pictures.
