I'm new to the site and I just bought a 1938 Viking, so I think that's what it is: 38CF698
where oh where to find parts??
I'm in NH
welcome to the site, nice looking tractor. As far as parts, unless your looking for something simple like a spark plug, your not going to find much. Getting a second tractor would be the best way and even then most of what you need is going to be just as worn out.

Welcome to the forum. Like lauber says, parts are where you find them. There used to be a guy here in Ohio that was making the tanks Ben from Old Paths Equip, a sponsor on the site carries the head gaskets. The engine house parts are real hard to find. The hood wouldn't be hard to reproduce if you have the grill. What else are you thinking you'll need. There should be a manual for a Standard Twin in the manuals section that will be the same as this tractor mechanical wise.

I had completely forgot about Ben and the head gaskets. Theres not a lot of these out there still running, so its kind of an uphill battle some times. Just be patient and parts sometimes will find you.

I'm new to this forum and here because of a Standard Twin rescue from scrap. Didn't know what it was, but found it interesting being two cylinders. Hauled it from the old homestead where I grew up to my daughter's place in Pennsylvania, got it running and tasked my son-in-law with restoring it as proof to me of his manhood. No picture yet. I live in Washington state. Took over my Dad's first tractor which is the Centuar pictured here and plan to move it to PA for restoration should manhood prove adequate.

that's pretty cool , never seen a Centuar setup with gauge wheels like that before.

Welcome to the forum. Looks like you have a model E. The serial number should be stamped in the top of the right frame rail, usually around where the handle bar attaches but I have seen them farther forward. I can date it from the number. It appears to have the wrong carb. The crankcase breather hose needs to have a T so the engine can breathe fresh air and not solely crankcase air.
The wheels on the back are part of the plow carriage. You had to take the riding sulky off and walk behind the single cyl Centaurs to plow.

We had the plow, but never tried it. Dad attempted to use the tractor pulling a horse drawn Case sickle bar mower, but it wasn't very good at it. Weak magneto and Dad's bad back sidelined it in 1949. I managed to start it up in 1955 and about killed myself when I put it in reverse. Didn't know anything about the riding sulky since we didn't have one.
