Looks like a nice project.  We transplanted a S14D into our 1250 years ago and is quite a work horse. 

 

Looks like your father may have had the engine replaced at one point in the past.  That green is the original Wisconsin engine color.  Bolens painted them white on the 1476 to match the tractors color scheme. 

 

Bolens 1000 is a very helpful source for parts.  I've bought some items from him and his pricing is fair with quick shipping.

HI, yes, I figured out that the engine had been replaced after doing some research. I asked a friend of his about him replacing the engine, but he doesnt remember him doing it. It may have been replaced before my dad bought it.. I dont know, guess I wont ever really know as I cant ask him now.  I did paint the engine the orginal bolens color for this rebuild. The paint match seems pretty good.  Now I just have to match the Bolens red.

Rustoleum Regal red is a very close color to the original Bolens red.

We, it has been a while since I updated the progress on my dad's tractor. Good news, the engine is done, installed and runs well. Here are some pictures of about where I left off before.
