Very nice work you have done. It will be a family heirloom with the history behind it congrats on a well done project.

Thank you, I will be removing the engine this summer and restoring the rest of the tractor.

Hi, it does have a slinger on it. I bought a new rod and it came with one. I used a piston ring compressor sleeve. I tried it without it but couldn't get it. The Wisconsin manual says to put the piston on the rod. Then put the cylinder on tje block, them put the rod , with piston down through the cylinder. I tried it the other way first, but did not work. I did it how the book said, i should have read the book in the first place. Even with the sleeve type compressor , it was not that easy

No you are right. I had to remove the rod, put the cylinder on then put the piston with the rod in. Went much easier.
