A couple years ago I recovered my grandfather's 1967 Ford 100 from his barn (before it was demolished) and brought it home. I've just recently started working on it in earnest. My thread for the tractor resto is here: http://gardentractor...62-my-ford-100/
Honestly I went into this project hoping the engine would start and run without much effort, only because it "ran when parked" in 2001. I thought about hooking up a battery and trying it, even. I could turn the flywheel by hand and it felt smooth.
Today I finally got to looking into the engine and I'm REALLY glad I didn't try to start and run it!
(These pics are upright on my PC but sideways here, not sure why)
I've never worked on an engine before (at least, not the inside). About all I know is what I've seen in a couple isavetractors videos on YouTube. My intention is to update this thread as I go, I'm sure I'll have questions and learn a lot.
Where I'm at right now is, can't get the screws off the flywheel screen. I'll try for a couple more days and then I'll drill them out--I guess I could then just re-tap as needed right?
